In Business, In Life, What's Important?

What’s Important?

Do you like what you do? Are you good at what you do? Does what you do excite you and motivate you to get going every day? Do you believe that you are actually accomplishing something?

Do you sometimes think that because you care your going crazy? Or you wish sometimes that you would not care, but you cannot stop caring? Do you think you can change the world?

Do you believe? I said, “Do you Believe?” Brothers and Sisters, “Do you Believe?” (feel a little Southern Gospel, that Holy Roller kind of atmosphere).

See yourself as Jake Blues (The Blues Brothers) in cheap sunglasses with the Light shining into your face through the church window. “Do you Believe?”
“You Got To Believe!”

Believe what you say? If you don’t know that already, the fire inside you has probably flamed out some time ago and you need to find some kind of work or activity that can rekindle the fire, or decide that it is not worth it and plod along quietly. But I think that most of you already know what to believe is, it’s inside you and it needs no explanation.

If your answer is, “Yes, yes, I believe!” (although I think Jake said, “The Band!”)
Then either your ready to, or are already “Living the Dream”. And you can say that and feel that if your day is going well or if your mired in the muck of your business day.

My friend Bull would always tell us that he was “living the dream” because even in the muck, if he pushed through hard enough he could still create the value that he knew he could. That is the save value you know you can create and the satisfaction of accomplishment will still emerge.

That is “Living the Dream!”.

The dream is ahead of you. It's what you visualize, not your daily ordeal. If it's big enough, that ordeal is immaterial. AND it shouldn't be just work.
