The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath your feet.

                                                                        Lao Tzu

I would like to share a story with you about a person, let’s call him John, who went to the beach to start a voyage to his dream island. John made a boat and waited on the shore to begin his journey, but, on most days, the ocean was windy with choppy waves and John struggled to find the right time to get his boat into the water. Weeks and months passed by and John continued waiting, dreaming about the day he would start his journey over the ocean. Years passed and John became old and died on the shore without fulfilling his dream. The boat lay ruined on the sand without ever having made a single trip on the water.

Life is like an ocean where windy situations often generate big waves. Like John, who waited all of  his life to start his first journey, if you wait on the shore of your life, looking for the waves of your problems to cease, you may never be able to make your journey. Your problems are your awareness of your life; until you know the problem, it won’t bother you.

The ancient sages of India reminded us that only those people who are ready to lose, will win in their lives; only the ones who are ready to take risks and get lost on the way, will enjoy new experiences and find the courage to reach their dreams. Make this your best life and start to live your dreams right now.

These 3 steps are essential foundations for building true wealth, yet many of us ignore them or are unaware of their importance.
