Get This Clear Fact About Being Wealthy
Get This Clear Fact About Being Wealthy: We live in a world that only the wealthy once are recognized. No matter who you are, where you are, your status or position in the family. One thing that will always make you stand out, which is your wealth. People tend to listen more to the rich than the poor/middle class even when the rich have no much knowledge of the ongoing event. This happens everywhere both in the family, church, neighborhood, etc.
This has been worrisome especially to the unemployed once seeking for job and the employed once with little or no income. Because their lack of getting wealth was misinterpreted for laziness.
In a not shell for you to have a voice, you need to be wealthy and for you to be wealthy, you need to work on yourself.
“When you change your world for the better, you have positioned yourself perfectly to change the world of those around you.”
Get this clear: You might not directly change the world, but when you change your world, you will have taken a major step in changing the world of others, including those you don’t know. You change their world by the words you use and the deeds you do. Dr. John Maxwell says “the average person impacts more than ten thousand people in his or her lifetime.” You can do more than that.
The life they say is a constant struggle. The moment you stop struggling, the moment your ruin, downfall, and failure sets in. The struggle of life is very evident around us, we see and face it every day of our lives. But sadly, not everyone is bold enough to face the struggles and hurdles that life brings. A dream in this context is an aspiration, a goal, or a wish which someone desires to achieve. There are three categories of people in life, thus; the lazy, the dreamers, and the achievers.
These are the category of people who do not dream, people who do not aspire to achieve anything, and people who are not strong enough to face and overcome the hurdles that life throws at them. Every great achievement is a product of a dream which began with a dreamer, and the lazy are no dreamers.
In the struggle of life, one has to dream and struggle to achieve that dream. That is what makes an achiever. As earlier stated, the lazy do not dream. They do not aspire to achieve anything.
Their lives are the daises carried by the wind with no direction of their own. Due to a lack of plan and direction for their lives, they find themselves in various vices and become a menace to society.
Just like the popular saying “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”. The lazy as known by society are failures and laziness is a secret ingredient that goes into failure. But it is only kept a secret from the person who fails, as opined by Robert Half. The lazy do nothing and thereby become useless and worthless just like Marcus Porcius stated “in doing nothing men learn to do evil”.
This category of people is a little better than the lazy. These are people who dream and aspire to achieve something. In this category, there are also two types of people.
First, are the dreamers who dream and aspire for something but do not work or strive to achieve it. According to Colin Powell, “A dream does not become reality through magic, it takes sweat, determination, and hard work”. Achievers are not made by mere dreaming, they are made by a dint of hard work, determination, and perseverance.
The second type of dreamers is those who dream and struggle to make it but fail and give up. That is why Conrad Hilton stated that “Achievements seems to be connected with actions. Achievers keep moving they make mistakes but they do not quit”.
So to all these dreamers who have given up on their dreams due to mistakes or failures, I encourage them not to give up. Thomas Edison the invention of the light bulb tried a hundred times before he achieved success.
He failed ninety-nine times and succeeded on the hundredth trial. No matter the mistakes you have made don’t give up. Another category of dreamers is those who turn out to be in the third category of people; the achievers.
these are the third category of people who start up as dreamers and struggle/ strive to achieve their dreams, goals, and aspirations no matter how impossible it may seem and how difficult it may be.
Dr. Prim Jagyasi stated that “those who belong to the clan of achievers live the ideas that inspire them, to dedicate their existence, efforts and so to its execution”. According to Mike Hancock, “an achiever is someone who gets up more times than he is knocked down”. So no matter how many times they fall, fail, or get knocked down they will always find a way to get back. They are not quitters.
Achievers are those who make an impact in the world. They are those who have made their marks and their legacies lived after them. They also make names for themselves. For example, Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote, Mark Zukerberg, Nelson Mandela, Chinua Achebe, Fr. Angus Fraser, etc. for those who have achieved their goals meaningfully in life I say well done but set new ones because arriving at one goal is the starting point for another.
Always be grateful for where you are but do not be contented with it. Always aim higher. Lawis et al opined that “you are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream”.
So never feel it is too late to achieve your goals or you are too young to achieve another, always strive to achieve more. Life will always throw obstacles and challenges at you but all you need is the courage and strength to overcome those challenges and obstacles. You need strength to rise after every fall.
Vineet Raj Kapoor once said, “the higher the obstacles the higher we get to rise”. So before you achieve you must struggle. No pain, no gain. Just like Albert Einstein said, “life is like riding a bicycle to keep your balance, you must keep moving”.
For you to be able to conquer the challenges of life and become achievers, you must keep moving no matter the obstacles or how bad the path may be, just keep moving.
I appreciate the little time you spent going through this script. Kindly take this first step to become wealthy by working on yourself and see if you don’t get a result.
