There was a study done of philanthropic millionaires who started
life with very little. They didn’t inherit money from their
parents. They didn’t land a miracle job. Yet they built
fortunes over the course of their lives and ended up dedicating much of their
time and money to the care of those less fortunate than themselves. The
study was to see at what point they became philanthropic in their focus.
The answer (not surprising) was that there was no point at which this
happened. They were always generous people who gave a portion of their
earnings to good causes. You don’t become generous with the acquisition
of money. You don’t become confident with the acquisition of
status. You don’t become disciplined with the acquisition of a body built
BE the person you aspire to. Make the choices you admire. Breathe
deeply and release anxiety. First BE. The ‘do’ will flow. The
‘have’ is inevitable.
Dream big. Then be willing accept the slow and steady pace of improvement
– it takes time. Set a pace that can take you all the way. Don’t
stop until you cross the finish line.
You can do it.
