Your Highest Priority

I flash back to about a year ago. My grandfather, one of the most important people in my life, had just passed away. As we all gathered together for the funeral, my thoughts shifted to my own future. I began to think about my own life and how I would be remembered someday.

It was a moment in time that was both difficult and sobering. For the first time in my life, I was looking at the bigger picture. It wasn’t long afterward that I decided to start my business.

Your Highest Priority

Your Highest Priority

Life goes by quickly. Day after day the sun goes up and the sun goes down, turning weeks into months and months into years. We wake up every morning, and we live by routine. We find a job, a safe and secure one, and we give it our full attention. Meanwhile, children are born, relatives die and time ticks slowly away.

Such is life for the average person. It just happens. It goes on and on until it eventually ends, lived out through thoughtless habits and careless actions. It’s unappreciated. It’s never truly understood. It just is. It is until it no longer exists.

Standing in front of my grandfather’s coffin, I made myself a promise. Never again would I allow myself to take this life for granted. Never again would I foolishly waste this truly precious gift. Right there, while saying goodbye to a person that changed my life, I resolved within myself to do the same for others.

What made you want to start a business?

I’ve asked this question before, but I really want you to stop and think it over.

What was it that first got you going?

Was it the quest for more money?

Was it the desire for more time?

Was it something even bigger?

What’s your reason for doing this?

As a young man who’s yet to start his own family, one of my biggest reasons is preparing for when that happens. I want my future wife and kids to be more than financially secure, and I want to be able to spend time with them. I don’t want to leave them for a job every day.

I want to be able to travel, create memories and be there as the right type of husband and father. These are the main reasons that keep me going strong. They’re what drive me to do this.

What’s yours?

Are you truly serious about making this work for you?

The vast majority of home business owners fail to stay focused, and as a result they never succeed. They just join during a temporary high, then quit when the going gets tough. They want results without effort. They want cash without payment.

My whole purpose for writing these articles is to help inspire others. I want to connect with people who are serious and dedicated enough to go for something bigger.

Anyone can dream, wish and hope for success. It is the “doer” who sets himself apart from the crowd. Think about what drives you. Meditate on your heart. It needs to be more than just dollars and cents. It needs to be something bigger. What drives you in your business? What drives you in your life?

In the end, when all is said and done, all of us will fill a coffin (or an urn). When that time comes, what will the people looking down at you say? What will they think? What sort of legacy will your life leave behind?

These are deep and penetrating questions. They might even make you uncomfortable. That’s good. Now is the time to examine your current path.

Are you where you want to be?

Are you growing and learning each day?

Do you have your priorities in line?

This is your life to live. You only get one. Remember what’s truly important.

Yours in Financial Freedom,
