Are You Ready To Go The Distance?


Today, not everyone is satisfied being “merely” wealthy ……..

Instead, many people want to be billionaires because that is exactly what it takes to truly impress the world today. Besides, this seems to be the new standard of wealth. Indeed, becoming a billionaire is like a great goal to some people. And for many of us, that will remain a dream particularly if we are thinking of being a billionaire at a young age.

From what we can observe these days, some of the success factors of our young billionaires are; they have big dreams, a strong belief in their dreams and are committed to work on their dreams. In short, these are creative visionaries with a positive attitude.

They have very good social and effective communication skills. You see, the ability to communicate with people effectively is essential especially if we have to sell our ideas. But, you have to be an honest salesman. And keep polishing your social skills.

They are entrepreneurs. Inventions may be a tough path for many people to take. What about finding some creative ways to improve what is already available? And if you are doing that, don’t forget to look into identifying the real needs behind what your customers want?

Remember never think you know it all because the moment you think you have nothing to learn is the moment you are killing your potential for a becoming billionaire. Start looking for a way to make money. And be mindful, how you go about pursuing your dream and what you are prepared to do to get there are equally important.

You may have to reset the parameters of your mindset. Stop doing the things you do not enjoy and begin doing the things you love. Say, you don’t know what you love, try a few things for a start …………………………. keep trying, until you hit on the right thing. And, last but not least, I have to acknowledge it helps to be in the right time at the right place. So luck has something to do with our success. Please do not misunderstand me, if we don’t know what to do when we are there, luck will not help us out much, right?

Generally, all of us have at least some of these success factors inside us. Like me, I think you are a dreamer too. You are positive with plenty of creativity inside you or, at least a little creativity, okay? And passionate in doing the things you love. I believe you are not going to give up working on your dreams easily and the list goes on ……………………… You see, you have some of these success factors inside you as well ………………………. “Are you ready to go the distance?”



  1. Sometimes I’m too ready to go the distance. Don’t forget to, Stop and Smell the Roses.” Gosh, that was the title of my ver first blog. Thanks for validating.

    Thank you Michael for such an inspirational post..

  3. Thank you so much for this. My goal at the moment is to work, and work hard. I know that next year at this time I won’t have a job and that I need to start saving now. I also have a list of things I want to do before the year is over including many stop to smell the roses ones. This is a great post!

    Excellent message. It is easy to become discouraged if things don’t work out immediately–keep plugging away until you achieve.

    We always enjoy reading your messages, but this one was very relevant and important to our staff. We find that standing side by side with our clients as they reach their own fitness goals can be difficult for everyone at times. It is important to help them find their own courage to “go the distance”, while being honest with them about the work it takes. Thank you for giving us all something to ponder and consider! We look forward to the next post!

    Nothing wrong in being a billionaire or aspiring to be one, as long as the means one adopts to reach that goal are fair

    This is an excellent post. I’ve added your blog to my reading list. And i’ve added it to my “blogs I subscribe to” page on my blog.

  13. I am in a English 101 course right now that is examining the influence and impact of social status and everything that goes with it, and I think you touch on very key details in this argument. Creativity, hard work, oppertunity, passion and yes, luck are all important factors. Great observation!

    the latest goal i have come to face with is getting out of debt… it seems to be tuff at times but im keeping my head up….that and no one is getting Christmas presents…lol..just kidding.. i Like like you blog my brother keep up the good work!

  15. Or …. harness all that energy a person invests in trying to become rich and redirect it into being happy, especially if that’s what we think riches will buy. Otherwise, realize what it is that we “do” think about what riches will accomplish and thoroughly investigate it. Maybe it’s not at all what we think it will be. What happens when all our friends only want something from us? It can be a bit lonely at the top – but there’s a reason that saying is pretty well known. Being happy takes a certain amount of work, even if it’s the work of letting go. For some of us, that work is a major oeuvre! And yes, your point of doing what we are passionate about, what we love – will bring success without fail. But if that doesn’t make us millionaires or billionaires, will we feel a sense of accomplishment anyway? Will it be enough?

    I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor, and honestly, the most important thing to me is the people I love and the quality of my life. In the end, what will truly matter? The boys with the biggest toys still die, and often lonely and feeling used. So sad.

    Thanks for the post.
