Everyone is constantly looking for the next best thing, asking, “How can I get the biggest bang for my investment dollars.” You’ve heard the “being in the right place at the right time” and “rags to riches stories of others” and you want your piece of that action.
Many people have been able to profit wildly by investing in someone else’s dream, and many more have found ways to profit from luring dreamers into schemes that are designed to exploit others and destroy their dreams.
Then there are those who do not look to others, to cash-in on someone else’s project or idea, or looking for the next shiny object. These are the dreamers who look within, they find that thing (many things for some) that they were born to do, and they fix their focus and invest their time and energy in themselves.
These are the people upon whom your attention is focused, those who were inspired and paid the price, they sacrificed, they were dedicated and persistent, and they did their own thing. Some of them started with nothing, starting from scratch at ground-zero, with no resources except for their own dream and vision.
Many opportunities to invest abound. Many people attempt to recreate someone else’s success, which rarely, if ever, turns out like you may have thought or been led to believe, because you cannot ever effectively recreate lightning strike success.
You can read all the books, study all the documentation, and follow in the footsteps of others who benefitted from lightning strike success, and you will never be able to recreate someone else’s lightning strike.
Unless you really feel like you could do better. You have to be careful, here. Because if you’re looking to achieve someone else’s level of success, that is not likely to happen, but if you feel like your dream is bigger, has more potential, and you could potentially crush your predecessor, this is a better path to pursue, and most of our advancements in all fields come from dreams of this magnitude which continue to change the world we live in.
Stop chasing the success of others and hoping to cash-in on someone else’s thing.
Stop Investing in Others
And start investing in your own thing.
You’ve come here with a unique set of skills and abilities and God is waiting to bless you with massive success for forsaking all and embracing your sacred calling and following it through to fruition. In this way, you can be one of the heroes that others look up to.
You will never worry about death-bed regrets because your life is an example and inspiration. You did the best with what you had, and you tasted the life that few have the courage to take on the challenge.
What’s the worst that can happen?
If you incest in someone else’s gig, or try to recreate someone else’s success, the worst that can happen is that you lose everything, as many have, spending years regretting your choice to bet on the wrong horse. And you may fall into the trap of trying you recover your losses by chasing someone else’s dream and trying to make it your own.
If you’ve invested in yourself, the worst that can happen is you can lose it all, but you can have a sense of honor of having done your best, followed your heart, embraced your own vision, learned, experienced, and accomplished what few others could. And your efforts could be hugely inspirational for others who will learn from your experience.
In this way, even if you totally fail, falling flat on your face, your efforts could change the world. This is common when it is said that someone’s dream “was ahead of their time.” But the time will come, and it may not have come to pass without your inspiration.
When you invest in yourself there is a far better chance you will succeed, and feel much better about it, if you don’t, but
What’s the best thing that could happen?
Is the better question for those who chart their own path, and dare to go where no man has gone before (no matter what the naysayers have to say about it).
Stop investing in others, start investing in yourself, and there are people and resources out there who can help you achieve your highest and best.
You are your greatest opportunity for success
Stop investing in others, which will help you to avoid investor’s regret, and start making your own dreams come true by living a better life, your best life, and make the world a better place.
