SUCCESS: Do I Deserve It?

Before I get to today's article, let me just mention that today is also my 700th podcast for Future You University. You can listen to it either on iTunes or the RSS feed. Be sure to listen to the podcast as well as reading the blog and then share with as many people as possible.
 THANK YOU for your continued support!
If you have encountered very many setbacks and/or roadblocks along the way to your goals and dreams, you may find yourself asking the question found in the graphic above: "Should I even expect or desire this for my own life?"
You may even ask yourself if you should just give up and you may even begin to think that the pursuit of "success" is nothing but a dream. You may even begin to feel that you are unworthy of such and that you don't deserve anything better than what you have in your life right now.
Let me answer all of that with a very loud and resounding, "YOU DO DESERVE BETTER!"
Listen, the "negative forces" (take that however you want) want to discourage you to the point of giving up on your goals and dreams. They also want you to even begin to doubt if you even deserve such a thing in and for your life.
I do understand the feelings and the thoughts. I've been there and done that and STILL "go there" from time to time.
But, friend, here is the key: DO NOT STAY THERE!
Kick that thought and mindset to the curb and listen to me: "The world NEEDS YOU to be successful!"
Success can mean many different things, so take it however you want and apply it however you want.
At the base level, the world NEEDS YOU to be the BEST that you can be! And, taking it to a different level, the world NEEDS YOU to be the BEST that you can be financially!
But, "money is the root of all evil"!
Nope. The Bible actually says, that "the LOVE of money is a root of all kinds of evil". You can check it out for yourself by going to 1 Timothy 6:10 in the Bible.
The simple fact is this: the more you have the more you can do. The more that you have, the more people you can help. The more that you have, the wider your reach.
Sure, do the "money game" that we talked about in yesterday's article and podcast and do it NOW on a small level if necessary. But, imagine this: WHAT IF you could bless the lives of others - MULTIPLE people - on a much larger scale?
Regardless, do what you can do it now - TODAY - while you have the chance.
Improve yourself each and every day and, from time to time, stop and take a look at your progress. It's easy to lose sight of your progress when you get knocked back a few steps.
Know this: improving YOUR life can and will improve the lives of those around you.
Pretty cool, right?
Friend, here's to your success and your continued advancement toward your goals and dreams.
Don't ever give up!
And, again, thanks for your continued support. Until next time...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
