The thing that stands out as I learn about the lives of the most successful people in every area of life is their self-image… their self-esteems are that of winners, that of people who deserve the best, who feel they are worthy of the greatest rewards that life has to give…
But not only feeling worthy to receive, but willing and eager to give the best they have within them, and willing and eager to give of themselves through the entirety of their lives…
Because just like an “old dog” can’t just retire and become anything different that what it is, an old successful person doesn’t just pack it in when he or she gets too old to do some of the things they used to do when they were young.
The most successful, the happiest, those most driven by more than just creature comforts and by money are THE most successful BECAUSE they have the self image of a success… it is simply who they are.
And the best news yet…
Most of them did not arrive in this world with the greatest natural gifts… they were not born to wealthy parents who lived in the poshest of neighborhoods.
They came, usually, from squalor or, at best, the “middle class” who have to work for everything they get, who never had anything handed to them.
So if I can impart anything to you that will give you hope and add fuel to your dreams it’s that you should never believe that you don’t deserve even the greatest of successes that life can offer.
There is always a way…Always.
If your eyes, mind and heart are open to the opportunities all around you.
And if you are willing and eager to give what life demands.
That is important.
Because life will pay you (in many different ways) whatever you believe, deep down, you are worth.
Read the biographies of famous people and you will see what I see. Talk to successful, magnetic, dynamic people. You will see that success shuns those who don’t have the self image of a success. But it is attracted like a giant magnet to those who do.
