Great line I recently read and shared with a group I spoke to just a few days ago: “Who is rich? He that rejoices in his portion. Don’t make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off you. All the other tangible rewards will come as a result.” – Benjamin Franklin
It’s one of those lines that makes you stop for a moment and think not just about what you are doing, making sure it’s one of the things you love doing and then going big, so big that all eyes are on you, so extraordinary that you are making a difference, so remarkable that others choose to remark about it, or about you. It’s not the pursuit of the dollar, instead the effort you put in to become attractable, then the universe is drawn to you, people, resources and tangible rewards, including money if that’s the right fit for your efforts. And it could be dollars not for you, but for something worthwhile you support, a charity you champion, or a cause you care about.
The idea is to love what you have already, believe in the abundance of what is in your life and at your doorstep, while still going after bigger goals, greater levels of achievement and taking your talents, your hidden treasures to places where people can’t help but put all eyes on you. The world, the rest of us, yearn for you to be great.
Some call it destiny, others legacy, for you, a life fulfilled.
Until next time, thanks for taking the time.
