Sitting in the room that will probably soon be called the lab, I’m at the laptop as usual working on something. Organizing an idea into an action plan….doing something on FB…whatever whatever.
Over walks my husband…he’s got this funny look on his face as he’s coming over…he leans me over (I’m propped up by pillows) and sticks a folded piece of paper under my stack of pillows. He adds a smile to his earlier funny face and goes back to his desk.
Now…after being married for 11+ years…I know it’s a harmless silly face he was making and it meant he was up to something positive. So I sit and keep typing away noticing, though, that I certainly have a burst of energy around me!!
I asked him what he put under me. I said, “Whatever it was, it was something good because I FEEL better energy from it.” And I literally felt better.
So I go to pull the paper out and low and behold, it’s a tri-folded list of “10 Money Lessons from Billionaires” and on the outside cover he’s handwritten $50,000,000,000.
Why does that matter you ask?!
Well…first it matters because, for all the fussing I do at my husband, I realize that the limitless beliefs that he has about his life, have no choice but to infiltrate my life! I’m a total Type A personality….and while that serves me well as a task master and ultimate “getter-doner,” it doesn’t initially leave room for a life without ceilings because you are used to following a “list.” And if something is not on that list, then it ain’t gettin done! Therefore, having him around adds a tremendous benefit to me that I did not always honor….and for him (and that) I’m more grateful.
Second, while I definitely had $1B on my life’s Bucket List, in no way had I gone to $50B. $50BILLION DOLLARS in personal net worth (you know…like, with YOUR name attached to it)….can you imagine it??? I couldn’t, before that day….
Suffice it to say, at that (this) point, the pathway to a hundred thousand is not firmly lit. At least not yet as an entrepreneur…but, as Martin Luther King put it: “You don’t have to see the whole stair case, just take the first step.”
You know the next step is going to be there….and then the 3rd and the 4th and so on it will go. The only thing you have to know is that somewhere at the top of those stairs in a landing. It’s called FAITH!
So, while I don’t know exactly HOW we’ll get to $50B….I can certainly fathom getting there now because: Why the Hell Not?!?!
