Which category do you follow into?
I have lived a successful life, been married to the same person for 33 years, have two great kids and coached many people that have become successful. I have traveled over 2 million miles sharing my wisdom with 10,000 of others. I am living a life if you told me was possible when my journey began. I would have questioned you. Through that process I have discovered that people follow into one of three categories.
The first category is those who are Clueless as they are letting life happen to them. Someday they might awaken and wonder as to what happened or maybe just sleep walk through life. They believe it is ok to trade time for money without developing a plan B. They believe the life they are living is ok and do not recognize that life continues to change or how change will impact them. They seem to go from Chaos to Crises and back to Chaos.
They do not see how technology changes can have a positive impact in there lives or on the business around them that recognized it and take the appropriate actions. The ones that do not become victims and ending shrinking to be a shadow of what they use to be or out of business.
How have some of the changes impacted our food supply? I asked myself with the great technology we have, why are so many people still attracting health challenges. I did not have to look to far before the answer was obvious. What I recognized is that many businesses are more concerned for profits then people. Why do I believe this. Look at what most farmers are doing to get there livestock to the market faster...feeding the animals with growth hormones. What did Monsanto do to insure the crops would not be bothered by insects or reproduce? They actually put the solution in the seed without thinking of the impact on humans. I begin to do research on how GMO impact health, not good Not to forget about the amount of sugar and other additives that many food manufactures add to there products to make them taste better and be addictive. I came to the realization that the foods you eat will increase the probability of attracting degenerative disease. I am 65 years young and still playing basketball with people that are 30-40 years younger. I do not take any prescription drugs or does my wife. I just had a physical and all my numbers were great. You might be thinking that I have good genes. My father died at a young age and so did his father. Realizing by making the right changes you can change patterns.
The second category is those who are Complacent or Campers. They went through the formal education process, got a job and are ok working for someone else on there dream, instead of there own They believe Success is for others and are satisfied living a ok life rather then a great life. They are not interested in creating a second income without having a second job. They are not interested in developing a additional income stream in there free time. They would rather be in front of the electronic income reducer and unplug from living life. That is ok for those who are willing to live a average life and settle for being Complacent.
The third category is the Climbers. They live a life on purpose and not allowing circumstances to stop them from reaching the top. They understand that every action will give them a life experience and will not let those experiences to be a camper. They will use those life experiences as stepping stones to insure they climb to the top. They realize what happen to them as they become a mentor to others will serve them. They realize the view from the top is always better and that is where they are destined to be. The good news is that with all of the changes that continue to happen, it is much easier to get there. I am not telling you it will be easy, just that it will be worth it when you arrive. The key to your success is finding the right mentor who will guide you along the right paths. When I had that defining moment in my life and I awakened. I listened to my self talk...that if others can do it, so can you. I understood when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. Happy journey to where ever you are as life is about the choices we make followed with proper actions.
Live Smart, Enjoy Life &
