Your Greatest Resources
by Chris Widener
When people think about pursuing something, they usually first take a look at their resources to determine whether or not they can do it. That is a wise thing to do.
But where most people fail in this process is when they look at their resources to determine whether or not they can do it, they are usually taking stock of the wrong resources.
Most people immediately look at money. How much money do I have? they ask. Sure, we need to know how much money we have, but money is not the greatest resource. In fact, there are a few other resources that are all more important, and certainly more impacting, than money.
Take a look through the following and see how you do. If you have money, but dont have these, you will not go far. If you have these but lack in the oney department, you can still pursue and achieve your dreams.
Desire. Everything that comes from life comes from wanting it.
Really wanting it. Do you have desire in you for something? A fire in
the belly that cannot be put out no matter what? This is what you must
have. True burning desire for what you want. This is not a wish or something
you would take if it came along. This is something deep in your heart.
Something you long for, something you have always longed for, and something
you will continue to long for. In many ways it is what you feel you were
created for. Your destiny. And it is buried within you and cannot be taken
away. Do you have this kind of desire for what you seek? Then you will
How big is your vision? Is it a tiny little thing that lacks a compelling nature? Or is it something so big that it acts like a giant magnet to everything around it? If you have an enormous vision to see your plan come to fruition, it will, no matter how much money you may or may not have.
It is true that most people who achieve something that others dont do so simply because they tried longer. Not necessarily harder, just longer. So often the prize is lost because we do not persevere. Wealth, talent, genius, and education are good, but cannot and will not take the place of the one who is tenaciously persistent.
Do you persist when the going gets tough? When it looks like the goal will be a little further off and a little longer in arriving do you quit and go elsewhere or do you buckle down and attack with even more diligence? If you will persist, you will achieve your dream, whether you have money or not.
What is your greatest resource? It isnt money. There are things
far greater s resources for you to have.
Do you have these? Then you have all the resources you will ever need
to live the life you have always dreamed of.
