I came across a video of the famous world class digital marketer and real estate guru, Grant Cardone. In that video, he featured his little daughter and asked her to introduce herself to the viewers. For a little girl of at most five years, you would expect something like; My name is Sabrina, I’m five years old and I’m in grade two. But this is what she said: “My name is Sabrina, and I can do anything.”
Funny right, wondering what a little girl can actually do. I will tell you: A little girl can grow with the right mindset. And that is all that matters, even for an adult. Having the right mindset.
It didn’t matter whether she could actually do everything. It is important, even at a very young age that she knows she could do anything she set her heart to.
This little knowledge you may say is what differentiate the rich from the poor, the successful from the unsuccessful, the strong from the weak.
What do you know?
What can you do?
It’s unfortunate that many of us didn’t get such knowledge when we were kids. But that’s past.
What about now?
What do you know?
I am yet to read the book, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki. But I am sure this is one of the things the rich Dad teach their kids; “Go into the world and explore life. For you can do any thing you set your mind to.” I don’t know why I’m smiling here, but that’s it. Anyone who grows with such mindset, can’t be a mediocre. Never!
I learnt sometime ago from one of my mentors; “Education is the process of replacing an empty mind with an open mind.”
Are you educated? Are you open minded? Do you seek knowledge? How often do you learn new things.
Like I always say, the future do not need your certificate. You must (desire) be ready to learn, unlearn and relearn. It’s easy to Learn anything these days. I don’t have to remind you right? Google and YouTube is your friend.
Let me emphasize this here:
Fortify yourself with the right network. Be a part of a great team of networks. Who are your close pals? Be strategic about it.
Keep learning new things, Live life to the fullest. Be intentional about you. Do everything it takes to live your best life. And remember:
