Influence

“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops” (Henry Adams). Recognize that you have wonderful assets to offer and edify the world. Never stop believing in your dreams or ability to help empower, inspire, motivate, and transform lives. See in others what they may not see in themselves, while encouraging growth, progress, potential, and forward momentum. Lead or get out of the way. Possibilities and opportunities are endless when people are bound by nothing and believe in the can-do capable power of themselves, subsequently making dreams come true. A key pivotal difference between you and every person that accomplishes great things in life is that they persevere longer, while diligently striving toward personal passionate endeavors.

Dream Big

In the 1952 Olympics, Sir Roger Gilbert Bannister broke the seemingly impossible feat of running one mile in under four minutes. After Dr. Bannister set that new world record, heightened awareness about possibility, probability, and potential grew in others. Within 46 days, Bannister’s record was shattered.¹³ Don’t wait to do something that has never been achieved before, but be crazy enough to believe in the potential of your dreams.

Seeds of Growth

Remember, a small acorn morphs into a sapling, which grows into a mighty oak tree. Plant fruitful seeds in fertile soil, nourishing and caring for them wholeheartedly, as they begin producing massive power, ascending heavenward. Major goals are to intentionally become better, do more on purpose, and give more of ourselves selflessly to causes we believe in. There is no arrival to a destination with a constant and never-ending goal-striving conscious and subconscious mindset. New feats to be won, done, and learned are in constant manifestation. Ardent desire combined with the execution of goal-setting and planning, while persevering, grinding, and hustling toward achieving new specific endeavors with precise set dates in time leads to exponential personal growth, meaning, explosive amounts of energy, aliveness, and vigor for life.
