The Three Types of People (as told by inspirational speakers)
Some watch what’s happening.
Some make things happen.
Some wonder what’s happening.
Making things happen:
Imagine the ideal situations you long for (travel, romance, a special car, more friends, etc.) and then ask: How can I make these ideal situations happen?
The first thing is to know it’s going to take awhile. Knowing this makes it easier to be patient: a talent that goes hand-in-hand with happiness.
The best case scenario:
Since money is the grease making more things possible…
We need to earn enough money to be able to save some while doing something we’re good at, and the “something” should ideally allow time to go by mostly unnoticed while we do it.
We need to move rapidly and learn to notice when we begin to rush. We tend to rush when we don’t have a well-thought-out plan. Not rushing makes it more likely we’ll innovate our way to the above ideal situations by being more positive minded and honing our best abilities.
Be realistic only when we should be. Think big, dream big. This will prompt us to recognize unusual opportunities and notice again opportunities we may have overlooked.
We shouldn’t worry about this taking awhile if we’ve set things up so we are using our best talents. It’s hard work to plan and then put the plan into action, but what a payoff.
So, we work by planning and doing and taking care of our health, allowing us to take better care of ourselves and others.
