A Billion Dollars of Work

Posted · Add Comment

How hard can one work to be a billionaire? How much physical effort does it take to turn out a million dollars? Can you really work so hard that your input equals output? The examples of the lives of people I follow like Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, Reginald Lewis, Warren Buffett, Robert Smith, and Aliko Dangote says no. Now yes, you do have to work hard but none of these people or the countless people I’ve interviewed would say their physical effort was the biggest factor to their success.

How hard can one work to be a billionaire? How much physical effort does it take to turn out a million dollars? Well, the short answer is no one is physically capable of doing such a thing. Some might think of athletes as a counter argument but if they really think about it, professional athletes greatest attribute is not their physical abilities but more their high mental ability to call greatness out.

Our greatest strength is our will and its ability to connect with the universe to call into existence what we desire. Which simply means our success comes from a greater place than our material selves.

I’ve heard many successful people tell stories of how they wrote down, spoke and even envisioned their dreams; Only to shortly after doing so have an unexpected person or thing come into their lives. That provided the game-changing thing that was needed to propel their success. I recall in Napoleon Hill’s, Think And Grow Rich, of countless people who were either healed of sickness or changed their world because the dominating thought in their mind was to either heal themselves or change their human condition, eventually “transformed themselves into physical reality”.

So my study and even my own self-evaluation reaffirm this to be true. The majority of my success and failure has been the cause of what I have told and sold myself.

So as you make your New Year’s resolutions, WORK on making them happen, but more importantly believe that you deserve them and truly believe that they will happen.

Be and it is.
