After my blog post from earlier this morning, I received a phone call from a reader of this blog who told me that I missed a critical point.
He appreciated my point about the need for people to celebrate entrepreneurship, vision and ambition, and how these traits should be honored in our culture.
He also agreed that the lack of focus on this element of the human spirit in the Stimulus Package (and anything else coming from the government) is a horrible oversight (but one he believes is on purpose).
The reason for his call was to tell me that he thought the "homework assignment" should not have been for people to celebrate others with vision and ambition, but to celebrate themselves.
He pointed out that the type of people who are regular readers of the "Some Assembly Required Blog", and of my books, are those who possess a desire to achieve more in their life. They already know that they have the God-given ability to succeed....and they are seeking ideas and opportunities to connect the dots that will lead them toward victory.
He is right. If you are reading this you are that special type of person. Take a minute to pat yourself on the back for not rolling over and complaining all day long about the state of the economy. Celebrate your inner-drive to contribute, to build, to create, to expand your territory.
Do you believe in yourself? Are you sure that you have talent? Can you feel the desire inside your soul to make a difference? If yes, then take a minute to celebrate yourself. If we all saw the power that we have to make the choices that pave the road to our own success.... more of us would reach that destination.
Have A Great Day.
