“Values aren’t buses… They’re not supposed to get you anywhere. They’re supposed to define who you are.” ― Jennifer Crusie
Good day folks, it is a beautiful Wednesday on this side of the planet, hope you’re having a beautiful day.
Welcome to the 4th String of #think2Riches in 2015 — the weekly string that helps you to live rightly through wise thinking.
Today, it is very crucial for us to touch down on the word ‘VALUE’. In fact, before you get cut up in the thick and thin of things this year, I need you to be very clear about ‘VALUE’ and how you can use it to ‘disrupt’ the world.
Now is the time to challenge the conventional tide, to broaden the boundaries of tradition. Yes, we must violate the expectations of the norm and prohibit the limits that restrict our innate potentials; we must know how to die completely empty. Our ‘VALUES’ speaks volume in this meritorious adventure.
Recall that, Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie wrote a charity song, ‘We are the world’ in 1958. Part of the chorus goes thus, ‘we are the world, we are the children, we are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving…’ I will change the latter part to ‘so let’s start THINKING’.
Poverty has eaten deep into the core of many nations of the world, immorality is served publicly on many global terrains and then we call for local, regional and international assembly to arrest these hurly-burly, only to come up with a ‘cosmetic fix’, we shelter a ragged foundation with evanescent solutions. Phew!
No, no, we can’t survive that way; talk less of envisioning sustainable system or living on common purpose. We must go back to the drawing board. No, YOU must go back to the drawing board. What is your IDEA about IDEALS? What are your VALUES? What do you hear, see and think that shape your daily realities?
How do you define wealth, excellence, integrity, faith, empathy, work, conflict, courage, competence, diligence, discipline, ambition, freedom, love, prosperity, zeal, originality e.t.c
YOU are my focus for now, not your mother, mentor, colleague or co-worker. DO you have a personal statement of purpose at all? Oh, and you want to join the #Think2Riches family? No, you must present to us the details of your VALUE system first.
In subsequent #Think2Riches Strings, we shall dig together some of the VALUES listed above, how to set it up for yourself and how you can invest and deploy it for personal and corporate development and ultimately for universal ‘disrupt’.
Your understanding of how and what you believe, think, dream, act and react add so much to the universe. Start making the right choice!
Cheers and Much Love.
P.S: With this, I welcome you to String 4 of #Think2Riches, a 50-week project that will drive you into right living through wise thinking. Keep tabs every Wednesday.
