Deserve Your Dream Life
“Life does not respond to what you need; it responds to what you deserve.” – Jim Rohn
Life is all about reaping rewards for actions you’ve taken in the journey of your life. Whether those actions create a robust harvest or a harrowing drought is entirely up to you.
It isn’t about who you are, where you are or what you have right now. A focus on lack in your current situation is useful only if you use it to realise the contrast between where you are now and what you’d like to be, do and have. No matter what your past, where you’ve come from or your current situation, are you capable of creating everything you ever dreamed of? Absolutely. Oprah Winfrey is a very obvious reference however a study of any number of hugely successful people will see many came from background of adversity.
So as long as you have breath in your lungs and determination in our heart, you can create the life you desire. But – and this is a very big but – have you done what needs to be done to deserve it?
“We don’t reap a harvest in the fall because we need it – we reap a harvest in the fall because we deserve it.” – Jim Rohn
The definition of deserve is to be worthy of, qualified for, or have claim to reward, punishment or recompense. We live in an era of entitlement, where people have an expectancy of everything they dreamed of being handed to them in a nice little package. That simply by going about your daily life, you deserve everything you desire.
“Reaping is reserved for the planters – the reason they reap is because they’re the planters – they deserve to reap.” – Jim Rohn
No one person is born with the skills and tools to create their dream life and make a mark on the world. These are qualities and actions that are learned along the journey of life. Those who commit to becoming the best version of themselves and leaving a positive impact on others are the ones who find true and massive success. Commit to planting your seeds so that you will reap in the fall!
Tips on planting a robust harvest:
- Learn every day. Commit to personal development at least 30 mins whether through audio, books or podcasts.
- Apply your knowledge. Knowledge is not power. Knowledge in action is the ultimate power.
- Get out and meet people. Share what you’re learning. Inspire others to go on their own path of self-development.
- Never stop. The day you stop growing is the day you start dying. Always be humble and know there is more to learn, commit to growing each and every day.
