Making A Difference

Everybody wants to make a difference. But the difference between unsuccessful people and successful people is in the difference that they want to make.

Unsuccessful people want to make a difference in their paycheck. Obviously, a positive difference.

On the other hand, successful people want to make a difference in the world.

Successful people want to make the world a better place. They want to make a difference in people’s lives.

Successful people see the bigger picture, much bigger. They see their potential for change as boundless as the universe. They are aware that there’s still so much for them to do, and to accomplish.

Unsuccessful people think small. They leave the big achievements to others but they never think that they are capable of achieving those big achievements themselves.

Our body is just a vessel. The only difference is how we think. If someone can achieve big success, why not us?

Happiness and Success

Some people don’t want to be successful. They swear that they don’t. They just want to be happy.

But what if they can be both successful and happy?

Success brings happiness. Happiness, often is just a byproduct of success.

Sure, success means making decisions to sacrifice fun. Happiness means sitting on the couch, with a bag of chips, watching TV.

But success is also our duty as people given the chance to have a place on earth. And living in alignment with that will bring us the most immense of happiness.

So, why choose only to be happy. Why not kill two birds with one stone?

No Audience

One of the biggest fears about achieving success is about building a following.

Every successful person or business will wonder how they’ll get from 0 to 1, 1 to 100, and 100 to 1 million. Unfortunately, the hard truth is that without a following, it’s difficult to build a massive amount of success.

Because success comes from being value to people. And the more people you bring value to, the more success you will accumulate. Look at the success stories we have today, Amazon, Tesla, Apple, Alibaba etc. They achieve massive success through attaining a healthy following. None of them succeeded by remaining small.

For all of us living in the digital era, it’s almost criminal if we desire success, yet choose not to build up our following.

Start to do so if you haven’t. Create quality content on a consistent basis. Reach out to people through the different strategies available in the market. Do so honestly, genuinely and with sincerity.

Time is the scarcest commodity. It is infinite but it’s not infinite to us.

So start today.

Hunger

Feeling hunger is a natural sensation.

We all know how it feels like when we missed a couple of meals. Our tummy growls like a scowling lion. Which signals to us that it’s time to drive to the nearest fast food restaurant to grab a burger.

But most of us never experienced the other kind of hunger.

The hunger for success.

We don’t experience it because we are always fed just enough so that we don’t feel any motivation to become massively successful. Just like a zoo animal.

The saddest part about life is to not live it. Most people are only operating at 20% of their full capabilities.

The true meaning to life is to attain long-term happiness, constantly pushing ourselves to our limits, live in alignment with our true purpose, and to improve the lives of the people around us.

Crazy People

Have you watched the film Back to the Future and Click?

What’s the similarly between Dr. Emmett Brown and Morty in the respective films? Both have messy hair, wear white coats, and are seemingly crazy.

One invents a time machine and the other, a remote control that can fast forward to whichever stage in life the user desires.

Both characters are great examples of why you shouldn’t aim to remain normal because crazy people produce crazy results. If you want to change the world, you must embrace your own idiosyncracies and you must not aim to be normal.

Everyday, normal people wakes up at 6, leave home at 7 and end work late in the evening. And their days continue to repeat themselves without anything worthy to shout about. Most of the time, their daily grinds don’t even result in any sense of fulfilment. Even worse, many of them end up becoming highly stressed and depressed.

Even if nobody believes you, you must believe in yourself. You must believe that you are brought into this earth for a noble purpose.

And for that to happen, you must always be clear about your own purpose and not be afraid of being just a little crazy.
