Thoughts become things.
If you let your mind go wild, you will find yourself following what others are wanting you to follow.
“A man is what he thinks about all day long.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
The greatest gift is the gift of personal opinion. This is not about right or wrong. It’s about creating your own opinion.
Too many people end up taking what others are saying as the only way to build their opinion.
When you build your opinion, you need to be true to your values. When you are true to your values, then you can build the opinion that is really yours.
Do you have a good enough reason to climb?
“It’s lonely at the top, so you better know why you’re up there.”
– John C. Maxwell
The road to get up there is filled with sacrifice and hard times. If your reason isn’t good enough, you’ll give up.
The way to the top is different for each of us. Get inspired with the success of others, but don’t expect to have the same climbing.
Your reason have to be a drive. It has to make you excited and happy. Your reason have to feel good for you.
Do you have a purpose in life?
Or are you following the mass?
If you think that following the mass is easier, you are misled. When you follow the mass, you deny yourself the opportunity to create something close to your heart.
“Great minds have purposes; others have wishes.”
– Washington Irving
Before people becomes great, they started at the bottom as any one.
We can all be great. We can all find our purpose. We can all create something that will resonate in our heart.
Our creation has to be great for us before it can be for others. We need to see the value before anyone can.
“Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out. “
– Benjamin Franklin
