The Big Buy In

19 Jan

There are billions of people in the world, and although we’ll never meet even a tiny percentage of them, there will likely be people continually coming in and out of our lives. They may influence us in different ways, block our path or help us pave the road ahead, be against us or stand firmly by our side. Nobody lives in a vacuum and what’s going on around us will generally affect us in some way. If everyone is getting along and we’re all headed in the same direction, there may be little conflict, but that will never always be the case. Everyone has their own opinions and ideas that may have little in common with what we want to do. Some people are very loud and ambitious, and may tell us with strong conviction what we should be doing and where we should be going. Although we know we are in control of our lives, it can be hard to dismiss someone with a great deal of power and influence. Even if we aren’t sure, we may buy into whatever it is they’re selling. It takes confidence to stand up to strong opinions and choose our own way, and if we’re meek and submissive, we may fall under the spell. If they suggest we dress differently, we may go shopping and change our look. If they think we should work harder, we may stay at the office longer. If they don’t think the person we’re dating is good enough, we may re-evaluate our relationship. Nobody knows us better than we know ourselves, but if we keep doing what others suggest, we’ll never have the life we want the most. Our decisions belong to us, and we can do anything we desire. By trusting ourselves, and standing firm on the road we most want to travel, we will reach the goals we’re seeking and find great happiness. We know who we are and what we want, and with determination and focus, nothing can keep us from success.

Wealth and power have their privileges. People tend to listen to those in positions of great authority or who command a great deal of money. Much of the world seems to revolve around money and power but most of us will never be kings or queens, or possess endless amounts of cash. That doesn’t mean we won’t have any influence. Every time we interact with someone else, we have the chance to share encouragement or valuable inspiration. We have so much to offer simply because we are here, and can bring great light to those around us.

Some people have big ideas and plans that show us ways to cut corners to get to success faster, or promise that if we just buy what they have we’ll find enormous reward. That might work, but it’s nearly impossible to achieve success without time, diligence, and determination focused on the goal. Short cuts may prevent us from learning important facts we’ll need later, and get rich quick schemes are a fool’s errand. We are intelligent and wise, and know what we want to accomplish. By keeping our eyes focused ahead, and continuing to move forward, every destination will be ours.

Today if someone wants you to buy into their big idea, stop and think about what you really want. Trust yourself and make the best decision for moving ahead. You are smarter and more capable than you imagine, and nothing is out of reach. Stand strong, look ahead, and be confident. Nothing is too hard for you to manage, and every dream is possible. Step forward and claim success.
