Thoughts & Ideas
that you may appreciate too!

Before I hit the sheets last night, I picked up my book written by T. Harv Ecker called Secrets of the Millionaire Mind. I would love to rewrite the whole book here for you, but obviously that would go against copywrite laws. I do however recommend you pick up a copy, it is about wealth – yes, but it is also about so much more in life.
The few paragraphs I wish to share talk about how you want to live your life. It will give you some food for thought.
How do you want to live your life? How do you want to play the game? Do you want to play in the big leagues or in the little leagues, in the majors or the minors? It’s your choice.
Most people choose to play small. Why? First, because of fear. They’re scared to death of failure and they’re even more frightened of success. Second, people play small because they feel small. They feel unworthy. They don’t feel they’re good enough or important enough to make a real difference in people’s lives.
But hear this: Your life is not just about you. It’s also about contributing to others. It’s about living true to your mission and reason for being here on this earth at this time. It’s about adding your piect of the puzzle to the world. Most people are stuck in their egos that everything revolves around me, me, and more me. But if you want to be rich in the truest sense of the word, it can’t only be about you. It has to include adding value to other people’s lives.
….Many of us are not living up to our full potential, in terms of both our own lives and our contribution to others.
…The world doesn’t need more people playing small. It’s time to stop hiding out and start stepping out. It’s time to stop needing and start leading. It’s time to start sharing your gifts instead of hoarding them or pretending they don’t exist. It’s time you started playing the game of life in a “big” way!
In the end, small thinking and small actions lead to being both broke and unfulfilled. Big thinking and big actions lead to having both money and meaning. The choice is yours!
Thanks to T. Harv Ecker for continuing to inspire me to believe I can do more for others and reminding myself and other who read this that it is all within our control to make a difference in our life and the lives of others.
