Your Inspirational Thought For The Day may not seem brilliant to you, but it is profound in its implications…updated 8-28-23
“Whatever goals you have in your life, and no matter where you are starting, someone has succeeded at something similar or even more difficult, starting with less than you have.”
I trust that you can rationalize something inspiring for your inspirational thought for the day. When you first read it, it may have seemed too simple. However, if you think about it for even a moment, you’ll see that the implications are profound – and inspiring.
With almost 8 billion humans on the earth…There may be some of you on the planet to whom this doesn’t apply. Perhaps some really want to do things that are far beyond anything a man or woman has ever done, however, there are not that many things in life that have not been experienced before.
As For The Rest, What do You Want?
Do you want a loving partner? Is somebody somewhere that has all of the qualities you desire, yet your expectations are just too high? Someone, somewhere has actually found that loving person and is getting married and is not expecting everything to be bliss for 90 years.
It is your desire to create new food and successfully market it? You probably already have more resources than Harlan Sanders had when he started trying to sell his Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Are you thinking about a big, beautiful new home? Three or more people in your town probably have such a home after being poorer than you at some point in their lives.
Some Thoughts About This
Anthony Hopkin’s character, in the movie “The Edge,” says “What one man can do, another can do.” He goes on to kill the bear that is stalking him. What if you aren’t as strong, as rich, or as smart as others?
Not all those who have done great things were always stronger, smarter, or richer than you. Just like them, you can learn the right things, take the right actions, and put in the effort. This is why this is an inspirational thought. See where some people started from, and you’ll find yourself saying, “Hey! If he can do it, I can too.”
You can tell someone they can save money to buy that dream home they desire. They may claim they just do not have any extra to save. They forget that there are probably already many people who are making less money than them, who have purchased a home and are surviving just fine. They made sacrifices where necessary and accomplished their dreams.
If they lived like those people for a while, couldn’t they bank the difference? If they made a budget, stuck with it, cut up the unnecessary credit cards, and paid off their debts, they probably could.
Just say yes – finding reasons why you can’t do something is a terrible habit you may need to relinquish.
Need A Date?
Would you like a date for this Friday? How can you get one? Here’s a clue: An awkward young man asked a woman friend why he couldn’t get a date. She asked if he had asked anyone out.
After he thought about it for a moment he said, “No.” “That’s why,” she told him. Better example: there are those who are often arrogant and always have a date – after asking twenty women a week out. These are lessons, aren’t they? If a geek and a jerk can get a date, you can too, right?
What About Colonel Sanders or Any Other Determined Person
Colonel Sanders drove around in an old van living off his social security check as 900 restaurants told him they were not interested in his recipe. One eventually said yes, and he eventually made millions of dollars. Maybe this could inspire someone to try something more than three times.
Final Thought For Inspirational Thoughts For Today
People come here with little money and speak little English and end up owning restaurants and stores. If you want to own a restaurant or store, find out how they do it.
There are about 22 million millionaires, with 8.8% being adult millionaires in the U.S. per Zippia.com as of October 20, 2022. They also state that 33% of millionaires are women.
If you really want millions, read their stories, talk to them, and learn how to make money. Whatever you want to do, someone has done it, starting from a worse situation than yours. If they can do it, you can too.
This is your inspirational thought for the day!
