“If I get really rich, then I’ll…”
In countless conversations with hundreds of people, I’ve revisited the theme of what you’d do with an unlimited supply of money.
And people let their imagination run wild. Or, at least, they think they do.
What soon becomes apparent is that:
a. the things they might do are limited to a range, and depend on their unique interests, tastes or preferences
b. they aren’t really all that expensive to justify waiting until later, for when they have more money
Oh, sure, those frivolous or idle dreams might be – like, “I want to buy a Ferrari” or “I want to own a movie theater so I can watch films in it all by myself” or “I’ll get rid of poverty, and then tackle world peace”.
The more serious ones, which are really goals in life behind which you’ve already put some energy, thought and passion, and think you only need more financing to reach, are actually quite affordable.
Want to save lives? Start today. Save one.
Want to retire on the beach? Forget later. Drive to the seashore now.
Want to mentor youth? Teach one. Then another.
Success scales. So get going. That’s the hardest part. Don’t wait until you’re “rich enough” to start.
Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!”
