I’ve heard people actually tell me, they don’t want to be rich.
Let me quantify what rich is with an example: being able to build 4+ orphanages in India because of your business and that’s what you feel called to do (Grace and Lace Co.). See, rich is giving value. Rich is helping others.
Granted, you can be a portion of this kind of rich, even when you’re broke. But I know you want to do more… I know you want to accomplish big things!
“Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can.” John Wesley
See, I believe that each of us were created with a specific purpose.
YOU have a distinct passion and dream that NO ONE else can make happen the way that you can!
I ask you, WHAT IS YOUR DREAM?
Do you want to build 100 Orphanages?
Serve your local PDCA full time?
Do more Paint It Forward charities?
See all of the foster care children in loving forever families?
Teach young adults the way to success in seeing their own dream come to fruition?
Teach the next generation how to paint in your local high school by volunteering?
Be part of a neighborhood initiative to stop the heroin addiction around you?
Mentor At Risk Youth via Big Brothers Big Sisters?
Adopt 10 children?
Maybe you don’t feel called to something big like that – and that’s fine, but work your face off being an employee and be the best employee you can be and make your bosses calling come true – and, by the way, find a boss who has a calling you want to support!
To the rest I ask, WHAT IS YOUR DREAM?
No matter what it is, I guarantee you, you will get there a lot faster by building your own business, being successful, and doing the things other people are too scared to do, because you know WHAT IS AT RISK—
the PEOPLE impacted by your dream. The child you WILL mentor “when you have enough time”.
There is a war raging. It’s a battle for the DREAM that YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN. FIGHT!
The casualties in this war are real – the children need you, the people of your dream NEED you. FIGHT! Battle on!
You can DO THIS! Don’t listen to the nay-sayers who think you just want to get rich. Keep your head down, your arms ready to block an attack, and work HARD, like you’ve never worked before!
Who are the people of your dream who will be a casualty of this war, if you do nothing? Think of them. Remember them. LET’S ROLL!
