Becoming More

We can have more than we’ve got because we can become more than we are. – Jim Rohn

Last week in my classes, we watched the Will Smith movie The Pursuit of Happyness.  If you haven’t seen the movie, I highly recommend it.  But we’re not here to discuss the movie, much.  The short version is, a man who had nothing, pushed himself to become more and to achieve more.  When I shared this quote with my students, they didn’t get it at all until I applied it to the movie, but they are unable to apply it to their own lives.  The thing is, we all have the opportunity to become more than we are.  It takes a combination of things, a clear vision of what you want to become, a strong belief that you will achieve this goal and a strong work ethic to reach this goal.  I know lots of people who practice the Law of Attraction say that working toward your goal isn’t a part of the Law of Attraction, I personally disagree.  You absolutely should work toward your goals.  Success isn’t just handed to you.  In the movie, the character played by Will Smith worked, scrimped and gave his all toward achieving both his short term and long term goals.  He truly started with nothing and ended up a multi-millionaire.  You can start from anywhere and become more than you are just be ready to work for it and to reap the benefits and the rewards of your hard work.
