It has been a while since I have written on this blog and I think my recent adventures have given me a perspective that I had lost with my work schedule and the hustle and bustle of life. Normally I write about Business, Real Estate, or things that in my humble opinion would appeal to a large audience? Today I am going to take a little detour and talk about something that I am very passionate about and that is giving back. There are many ways to give back in both your community and around the world but I am going to discuss my latest adventure, what we did, why we did it, and why I can’t wait to do it again next year.
Somewhere in the World a Child Loses a Parent Every 2.2 Seconds.
There are 143 million orphaned children living in the world today and as many as 100 million more children abandoned on the streets world wide, living in substandard and dangerous conditions (UNICEF estimates).
Generations of children have been left to raise themselves. What future awaits them? What future can be predicted for their countries?
- Know what you want. The truth is we can have anything we desire in life. Earl Nightingale said that if man only knew that he could have anything he wanted he would set more goals. What do you want in life? Wealth? Health? Happiness? Any and all can be yours – if you create a compelling enough vision of your future. This vision works like a magnet, moving you forward and keeping you going, even when you hit occasional walls. Walls are part of any business and it’s what you do to get up, over, around, and through them that matters. Really knowing what you want will move you beyond them each and every time. The truth is if we set more goals we would achieve more things in life. If your vision is clear, you will get there. The problem is most of us do not have a clear vision.
- Write it Down. Success begins when you grab the pen and paper and think and work to craft your ideal life. Successful people think on paper before they act. You must take the time to write your success plan on paper and your goals down on paper. Only 3% of our population does so. Guess what those 3% have, live in, drive, wear, and eat? It is not by accident what they achieve. It is by design. If you cannot write your vision with clarity on paper you certainly will not be clear mentally to achieve it. By writing your vision clearly you will pull you mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional powers in alignment to achieve your vision and goals. Your mind, your body, and your subconscious mind will all work like a tug-o-war team pulling on the rope of life. With those three powerful forces pulling in concert, it does not matter how many or how strong the opponent is on the other end of the rope. They will most assuredly be pulled across the center line for your victory.
