Success is looking for a good place to stay. – Jim Rohn
The Jim Rohn video from yesterday lead me to another and this little phrase from the next one caught my ear.
Imagine if you will “Success” as a person (I imagine someone walking around with a big “S” on a plain t-shirt) just walking around looking for a good place to stay.
It wonders around all day and night, but most people are too busy, too self-centered, too worried and preoccupied to even notice.
It moves along until it finds a good place to stay. Until it finds a home where it is comfortable.
I imagine the dramatic movie version to go kind of like this:
They start with someone working hard on self-improvement – exercising, reading, budgeting, serving, etc. Nobody really notices.
All the while “Success” is wandering the streets, getting turned away at every door.
Then finally, “Success” bumps into the hero of our story. He/she lets “Success” in. “Success” gets comfortable (I imagine scenes with “Success” in the bathtub, on the couch, napping, etc.) and things start happening.
That idea our hero had starts to take off.
The kids and wife come along and flourish.
The money and responsibility come in, but our hero doesn’t buckle under the pressure.
Some of the hero’s friends and family come over and run away immediately when they see “Success” has moved in.
Some of the hero’s friends and family come over and are fascinated with “Success” and begin to ask questions about why “Success” hasn’t come to their house. Some learn and get the visit. Some don’t and don’t.
Imagine yourself in this movie.
First, who plays you?
Second, which part do you play?
Make it a great day.
