Every Piece of Gold and Silver is Valuable
but so is the Time Searching for it
Is it me or are people living in a dream thinking that success is some kind of entitlement? Recently, I was speaking with a friend and the conversation turned to how bad things were in his life and he didn’t see any way out. As I frequently do, I immediately started asking him questions about his daily routine and what if anything he was doing to break out of this self-destructive thought process.
I was astonished to find out that in his quest to find his personal gold and silver in his life, he spend most of his day complaining about how his life sucked, playing Farmville and blaming everyone else for his misfortune. Don’t get me wrong, the last few years have been challenging for everyone but there is opportunity at every turn, you just have to be paying attention to take advantage of it. It is impossible to succeed if you ignore opportunity. When opportunity presents itself, you better take advantage of it because that gold and silver that you are looking for might never show itself again.
The rich get richer during recessions because they know that while they are acting upon opportunity and building wealth everyone else is throwing in the towel and playing emotional Farmville. I am in no way bashing Facebook or that people spend time decompressing by playing Farmville or any other time eater. I am merely suggesting that giving up on your quest for the gold and silver of your life (whatever it might be) before you find it is personally and professionally destructive.
The most important ingredient in becoming wealthy (emotionally and financially) is the commitment to the process not the outcome. If you become hyper focused upon results, you will fail every time and before you know it you will quit at everything you do. Quitters never win and winners never quit.
Think about the most successful you have ever been in your life. I’m not talking about making money, I’m talking about something that you were successful at like sports, gardening or playing a musical instrument. Everyone has had success at something so think back. How did you become successful? Did it happen by accident or did you work at it because you were committed to the process?
Whether you like Tim Tebow or not, he is a perfect example of someone that is committed to becoming better at something no matter what others say or think about him. Are there better football players in the NFL? Sure there are but there isn’t anyone more committed to what he believes and what it takes to become successful than him. If he would have listened to all the analysts and pundits, he would have quit months ago and resorted to some mundane activity that would be rotting his brain and robbing him of the success that is sure to come.
Finding the Gold and Silver in Your Life is a Process
It takes time and commitment. If you think you can just try something for a few days, weeks or months and create wealth that lasts a lifetime, you will be very disappointed and you will never be successful at anything. Most people know that Michael Jordan is considered to be the best basketball player ever. What is less known is that he got cut from his high school basketball team way before he developed into the legend that he is. He loved basketball and committed himself to the process of being the best that he could be. He never thought he would ever be considered the best ever but the commitment to the process made him exceptional and it took many years of hard work to achieve it. Remember that the next you feel like you are losing your nerve because your personal gold and silver might just be waiting for you around the next corner.
Your Personal Gold and Silver Awaits
Casting blame and doing unproductive things all day is not going to get you anywhere close to what your life has in store for you. It’s easy to fall into the trap of self-doubt and allow others to dictate your well-being. Believe in yourself, commit to the process of finding your personal gold and silver whatever it is. Don’t let short term results or the advice from negative people derail you from your journey to success. Every piece of gold and silver is valuable but so is the time searching for it.
Stay Focused and You Will Find Your Personal Gold and Silver.
