If You’re Not Making Impact, You Are Not Living
You can never win by being selfish. You know why? If after climbing the ladder of success, you remove the ladder, any day you slip, the fall will be so hard you might lose everything (life), but if you carry others along, they won’t allow you fall so hard as you can have someone to land on (recover).
Our country is where she is today because of selfishness.
Always remember that the position you find yourself anytime is not just to enrich yourself but to impact lives.
Many social entrepreneurs are becoming even richer because they are impacting lives. They provide free solution, the world accepts their solution and they make heavy money.
That being said, here is my main message.
Let’s stop being too demanding. That thing you lack today and need so badly should make you think of positive things to do to get them.
Like I always say “Unemployment is a good thing, it makes man to be a great thinker.”
Many of us have refused to think their way out of poverty. Remember, what you think, you become.
That goal is possible if you believe, never say never. When you try and fail, try again and again but try differently and smarter.
“The mind is everything. What you think, you become” – Buddha
Let the technique change but never the goal.
If you think you can’t, inspire yourself with stories of the less privileged that made it. Ask yourself why can’t you?
Enquire from successful gems, ask questions, make research, go to the drawing table, re-strategise, collaborate, meet like minds, and try again.
Never say “I failed”, only say, this method didn’t work.
Never say “I am tired of trying” you might be one try away from succeeding.
Always hope for the best.
Your age now should not be a barrier, remember the case of Ray Kroc of McDonald’s.
In all, I say, never lose focus.
If you don’t do it, no one will do it for you.
Start making impact today.
To your success.
