Be a Millionaire in 2 seconds.......................

if you respond within 2 seconds of me posting this!

Ok, not really. I don't really have a million dollars to give away, but I wouldn't be surprised, that if it was real- I would get the most comments EVER in 2 seconds award. Often, I am reminded of all the "get rich quick" schemes and how people are willing to blow 50 bucks on a lottery ticket just hoping it may be the one that makes them a millionaire. How many people have gone on fad diet, after fad diet- just to be heavier then they were when they started out on the first fad diet? Why do people quit so quickly after resolving to "get things done". People quit, because they do not see the results fast enough. They don't get the six pack they have always wanted within 2 hours and decide, what's the use? Or, they don't see that immediate promotion when they have worked 80 hours of overtime just so the boss could see how great a worker they are. Everything takes time. As quoted in the above poster,

"Nothing worth gaining was ever gained without effort." - Theodore Roosevelt

If you win a game without really trying, or without putting hours and hours of practice in, it isn't half as fulfilling when you know you did everything you could to prepare for that game, etc... and when you win it is that much sweeter. Same thing for any dream you have. If you don't put the work and time in needed to get there, then you won't. If you quit when you don't see results 15 min. after "working" at it... then you will never have Life: Your way.

In my very first post of this blog, I mentioned how it seems lots of people do dreaming and planning, but then they never do. Well, I think some of them do actually "do" but they don't keep at it when the going gets rough.

Oprah Winfrey says, " You have to believe that you can succeed, believe that you can be whatever your heart desires, and be willing to work for it."

If you really want to be a millionaire or really want to be an award winning actress or a world renown surgeon or lose 50 pounds, then realize it will take work, and a lot of it. Realize results won't come immediately, they take time, sometimes years and years- but if you are consistent and keep at it, no matter what happens, then you will get exactly what you desire!
