Opportunity Overalls – Work


Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work – Thomas Edison.

They say if wishes were horses beggars will ride. Are you working out your dreams and not walking out on them? Stop the day dreaming, stop the wishful thinking, stop looking for a handout, roll up your sleeves and see how lucky you suddenly become.

Today I will be asking questions, questions only you can answer.

Are your activities directed towards making or doing something?

When you done expending time and effort do you have a product or service you can serve the world with?

Is there something you do so well that people do not mind paying you good money for doing it?

Are you constantly applying your mind to learning and understanding a subject matter?

Do you spend your day wishing for a better life or do you spend your day working out for a better life?

My folks in the US call it your grind. Are you a goal grinder or a life grinder? Meaning are you focused on just a goal or is working a life ethic?

Tim Nokte said “hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard”.

There is no elevator to success someone said, you have to take the stairs.

You need to stop loafing around life, you need to quit acting like your dreams are going to make themselves, someone said “work hard in silence let your success be your noise”.

So like George Meyer says (1) Show up, (2) Work hard, (3) Be kind, (4) Take the High road.

When you railroaded, when you are down for the count, when all hell has broken loose and you can’t see any lining not to talk of silver, are you stubborn enough to stay on your feet and work it out.

God instituted work, work gives life meaning, and there is something about a goodnight sleep when you have worked. I believe when you’ve worked hard enough, worked out your brains, body and soul, sleep is the natural consequence, and you won’t be needing any pills.

You need to take a stand, quit making excuses for your sloppiness, you have made a habit of quitting on difficult things, if its stressful you do not want it but for how long.

Are you going to quit on all the good in your life because you are too lazy to work?

You excused your abysmal performance in elementary school, you managed through higher school, you said while in university your lecturer didn’t like you, now you are working and still your boss doesn’t like you. Are you this unlikable or are you truly just flat out lazy and always looking for the easy road.

You cannot argue with success, when people want things done are you an option. Are you a goal getter? If work doesn’t kill you something else will but wouldn’t it be better to die trying than sitting in your little corner sucking, having given up before the game even started.

Today make up your mind to work at your job till you get to the top, work on your marriage till you are a great husband or wife, work on your relationship with your children, become the greatest dad, and become the greatest mum. You were meant for more playing small doesn’t serve anyone but you have to work it out.

Read, be ferocious in your approach to study, become an information hub, become a walking encyclopedia, you have a brain use it and I will see you at the top.

Commit to a daily routine to grow your mind.

That’s G.Y.M for today and I trust that you are charged up and obsessed with a burning desire to succeed. Ordinary is a misnomer for you.

Plan, Act and Pursue your dream.
