A $1 and A Dream


Part 5 of the getting to know yourself series.

If you played the lotto with a dollar and a dream, what would you do with your winnings?

Grab a pen and a piece of paper and give yourself a lotto jackpot of $50 million dollars.

Who would you help, what would you buy, and what causes would you support.

There was a show on last night about this very topic. So many of the winners went broke. Spending and spending and spending without ever creating a plan for themselves.

Others kept their regular lives, and their day jobs and saved the money for special occasions.

Many made foolish investments, lost relationships with vital family members because of greed, and selfishness and almost lost themselves in the process.

You see, just because you want something doesn't mean you will know what to do with it when you get it. This goes far beyond money. For ladies it's also finding that right man or fellas finding that right lady. It's finding your dream job, or your dream house, or even being in the most perfect place on earth at what you thought was the perfect time.

Without a plan for your life you can lose the very things you have ever wanted and finally received. You need a plan of action to keep it these things from slipping away.

Just like winning the lotto unexpectedly, without proper preparation and education, you can find yourself right back where you started.

Yesterday we talked about reading self awareness and self help books to help you handle the problems you have and as a mechanism to get to know yourself better.

But what do you do to ensure these same problems don't show up again?

You plan.

AND

You practice.

These are your only two defenses to avoid relapse. Relapse to bad credit, relapse to bad relationships, relapse to bad jobs, relapse to being broke, you plan plan plan plan plan.

And you don't leap through your plan either. You baby step. The Journey of a thousand miles starts with only a single step. Don't worry about the finish line, it's coming, you just keep on keeping on out there towards your goal putting one foot out in front of the other every day.
