As what Donald Tramp once said, “As long as you’re going to be thinking anyway, think big”. This quote concludes that we have the power to become the best person that we can be.

One time we went to the mall. We roamed around together with my family. It was fun. I found great stuff to buy but it was pricy I was carrying enough money for the most important things that I only needed. It was then when I realized all of a sudden that if only I haved more than enough I could afford things that were beyond my needs. Maybe being rich and getting out of the perception that money is the root of all evil is not bad. I guess it only depends on how we use our money. Maybe if I have more than enough I could extend my hands farther to those that are needy and afflicted. I could lengthen my stride to the one’s that badly needed me. But where will I start? The road to success seems narrow and farther than we thought.

Jeff Bezos said “I knew that if I failed I would not regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying. I do not want to live in regret knowing I could have tried. I have to think bigger. I have to believe that we got what it takes to reach our goals. It all starts in trusting our capabilities that we are no ordinary people that we are beyond the person that we think we are. We are the architect of our life and we shape the life that we want to have in the future. Believing and trusting ourselves are essential characteristics that one should possess as we travel the road to success. If we don’t believe and trust ourselves then there is a big loop hole on our end.

We also need to have a clear blueprint of our plans and how to execute it. Steve Case said “In the end, a vision without the ability to execute it is probably a hallucination. We have to work it out otherwise these are all dreams that will never come true. I often hear the saying no pain no gain which applies to real life scenario that there are hard works and increase perseverance in exchange of the life that we have been dreaming of. We have to be a goal getter and we have to set standards for ourselves. I like what Bill Gates once said that he never took a day off in his twenties, not one. He depicted a good example that we get the price of hard works and sacrifices of yesterday as we strive work our butt off and not sit idly and leniently but rather grab every opportunity that we can get today and work hard with passion and a clear mind set of what we are targeting.

I strongly believe that we are capable of doing great things and there are no walls that we cannot climb no bridges that we cannot cross unless we believe, trust and work out our goals in our life. The road to success can never be too far if we start walking now to reach the end of the tunnel.

We got it. We are all worthy of the life that we deserve. We are not limited but we are entitled to bigger things only if we do not stop in trying, believing to ourselves.
