So, here’s the big challenge of life according to Jim Rohn:
“You can have more than you’ve got because you can become more than you are.”
That’s the challenge. And of course, the flip side of the coin reads,
“Unless you change how you are, you’ll always have what you got.”
I have found in my experience that income does not far exceed personal development. Incredible success is something you attract not something you pursue. Success is looking for a good place to stay. So instead of going after it, you work on your personal development.
I remember getting a scholarship from our nation’s first hospital, Pennsylvania Hospital. I felt like that scholarship was my ticket to advancement. I was so happy. Because, for me, true happiness was not contained in what you get. Happiness is contained in what you become.
Personal development found me by accident at age of 18. I always loved to read, and one day I bought a book at the used bookstore on the boardwalk in Wildwood New Jersey.
The book was by John C. Maxwell. I was with a group of friends, and we went and sat on the beach, and I read the book.
This book changed me from the first day that I picked it up. The book was called, “Intentional Living”
The truth is, I am still working on intentional living. I think it’s an unending challenge to see what you can become. The book taught me some basic laws and I didn’t even realize until recently when I was working with Tony Robbins in Mastermind Group how adopting some new rules, that I lived by has helped me become the version of myself today and it’s a work in progress.
If you look at your bank account and your income and you’re not happy, then set a goal. When I go back and look at my goals to be self-employed. To own multiple million-dollar homes one being on the beach, and to travel the world.
I’m proud that there isn’t a goal that I haven’t reached. Now, there are still goals to reach, my goal list changes almost quarterly.
One day my niece saw one of the goal charts that I was working on, and she asked me, she said, “Aunt Cheryl, what’s your secret? How did you become who you are?” So, I told her, “there are so many secrets to share, but today I will start with the most important one… You, my dear, hold the key to your future self.”
She is now making her own goal charts. I can’t wait to see what she will do with her life. I share all of this with you because success leaves clues.
Post-acute care has been my life’s work. It has brought me happiness beyond what I thought possible.
