Everyone has the potential to do something great in their lifetime; that is true of everyone with a sound mind. It might seem like something just to say because it is being polite, but it’s true.
I am convinced that if you put your mind to something and do the work that is required, you could really explode with your potential and do anything great.
I am also sure that everyone has something they want to do or achieve. Some tell others about it and others keep it to themselves. Regardless, the world will always recognise and pay for anything valuable. People will also pay for nonsense, but they can only be fooled for so long before the truth cracks the surface.
The easiest part of work is talking about it or around it. We can all say what we want to do, how we want to do it, and even the benefits and riches it will bring, but solemnly do we start with the actual work first, if ever. Sometimes the wisest thing to do is to put words into action. With each little task completed you earn the right to talk about it; it will be more believable.
What suffers the most when words and actions are not aligned is not that you end up with an empty dream, but that your reputation is weakened and it becomes a little difficult for people to believe you again. Intentions that are not fed with action remain just that, words.
Sometimes it’s good to try and put yourself in other people’s shoes just to see what they can do when you do what you do. It is easy to judge when you don’t know what is happening, but it also makes it easier to see when you are being deceived or when a person is simply being lazy.
We all have ambitions and like other people that have ambitions too, the bigger the dream the better it is. They always say the hardest part is the beginning, just start and show people what it is you are trying to accomplish. In most cases, the help will find you along the way, but only after you have already started.
Tell the world what you intend to do, but first, start with what you intend to do. The world will catch up and assist you as you move.
