Here’s my big question: Is your life too easy?
Are you too comfortable?
Maybe that’s the reason why you’ve remained stuck.
Maybe that’s the reason why your dreams have not come true.
Because our faith is not expressed through action.
It’d like to share this passage with you:
My friends, what good is it for one of you to say that you have faith if your actions do not prove it? So it is with faith: if it is alone and includes no actions, then it is dead. (James 2:14, 17 GNT)
Today, I’d like to talk about Keep walking.
I’ll about this old-fashioned idea on working hard.
Oh, believe me. It’s a very unpopular topic.
For many people, “work” is a dirty 4-letter word.
When people ask me, “Bo, how can I succeed?”, and I answer, “Work really hard,” I see a glazed look in their eyes. They zone out. I lose them. Because today, people want to hear more glitzy, glossy, and glamorous catch phrases like, “Think Wealth” or “Focus On Your Dreams” or “Change Mindset”.
But “hard work”? That’s just too old school.
That’s why people love it when gurus say, “Don’t work hard, work smart.” Yes, I agree at working smart 100%.
But can I be honest with you?
All my life, I’ve done both. I work smart and I work hard.
Here’s the truth: I have yet to meet a hugely successful person—whether in his family life, or spiritual life, or financial life, or health life—who is not working smart and working hard.
Successful people have fire in their belly and they work 12 hours a day—but because they love what they do—it appears like they’re not working. The boundaries between work and play get blurred.
How did I write 45+ bestselling books? Easy. Because when people ride planes, they rest by watching 3 movies. When I ride planes, I rest by writing a book. Writing and resting are the same to me. Yes, I’m insane.
Are You Working Hard?
A lot of people complain that nothing is happening to their lives, that they’re trapped forever in their hole of frustration. And they complain that life is unfair because they’re still buried in debt. Yet when I ask them what keeps them busy, they tell me they finished the entire 10 seasons of Big Bang Theory in one week. Or they play Candy Crush Saga for two hours a day.
Hey, I’m all for R&R. If you’re 60-years old and reached success, and you’re enjoying the harvest season of your life, go for it. Binge on Netflix.
Some people argue with me, “But Bo, I want my three hours of telenovelas everyday! That’s how I de-stress.” Yes, you can do want you want. Six hours, if you want.
But don’t complain with what you’ve got.
May your dreams come true,
