The world is divided into two classes of people. One class can achieve whatever they want in life, while the other side will always be disappointedly waiting for their ship to come in. If given the choice, which would you choose? Here is the universal truth which will determine which class you will be in:
"Those who understand that they will be rewarded in life based on what constructive service they offer the world, not based on what the world owes them, have the key to accomplish any amount of success they desire in life."
Here are a few thoughts on how this works:
1) The first class of people know that the world only rewards and pays for the constructive service that you offer it, period. It doesn't matter what line of work you are in, you will only be rewarded for what you offer. This first class of people know that they must first offer their service before they are "owed" anything from anybody.
2) The second class of people think that they are owed something from the world. Their motto is "no one will give me a chance." Since no one will give them the chance that they believe they deserve, they sit idle and withhold their service from the world. Since the world is offered nothing, it pays nothing in return. Their ship remains at sea.
3) Their is nothing inherently wrong with education, a background of affluence or a background of poverty. But, these are commonly used as a catalyst to join the second class. Many people think they are so educated that the world owes them "X", or since they are from the "Jones" family they deserve "Y". Or, since they did not come from affluence, they deserve a hand out in order to get going.
The common theme with the second class of people is not the "Why," but rather the premise that the world owes them something. Please take a second to understand this simple universal truth. "Those who understand that they will be rewarded in life based on what constructive service they offer the world, not based on what the world owes them, have the key to accomplish any amount of success they desire in life." Once you understand this universal truth, the only thing that will determine how far you go in life is how large the constructive service that you offer the world becomes.
