No one goes around bragging that they just brushed their teeth. Right? So why do some people believe that the best way to achieve a goal is to set the bar lower? I personally used to wonder if it was even possible for a normal person like you or me to achieve anything significant in life.
Now I know it’s actually easier than you’d think. Besides lowering the bar and expecting nothing, I would encourage you to consider a different option. An option that’s seen as very rare in society today.
You can just make your actions match your ambitions.
So many people out here are saying that they want to have a ton of money, yet they spend the little money they have on an iPhone X. It’s crazy Michelangelbro! Seriously. NUTS!
People walking around here like if you just want something enough, it’ll just come to you. Like there’s a secret to “the secret,” that if you just sit on your couch hoping and wishing, everything you want will come to you.
I wish it were that simple and so does everyone else, but unfortunately, as Charlie Munger, mentor to billionaire Warren Buffet says. “To get what you want, you have to deserve what you want. The world is not yet a crazy enough place to go around rewarding undeserving people.”

P.S. Nothing more for you today. I just really want to encourage you to think about what you want in life and instead of complaining about why you don’t have it, seriously consider what you’re (not) doing that’s preventing you from seeing your goals faster. It might be as simple as getting a little help from someone you trust…ahem…Talk soon!
