We have all aspired to be billionaires at one point. The problem is that we let life get in the way of that ambition. We get comfortable in our jobs and have kids. After that, we barely have any time for our ambitions. All we do is use our Spectrum internet plans to follow our billionaire role models on social media. But should it be this way?
The answer is no. If you want to be a billionaire, you need to work towards it, continuously. Sure, you are allowed breaks from your ambitions for things that are more important. But to completely forget about them is not the way to go. That can demote your ambitions to mere wants.
The successful women know this difference. They may take a few years off from their goals to start their families, but they always return. This fire burns inside them that will not let them stop trying. Use this blog to re-ignite that fire within you, if it has burned out.
Many women out there have taken their aspirations and made them a reality. Why can’t take a page out of their books? What sets them apart from us? Absolutely nothing that is not self-imposed.
