Your success foundation is being built now,
How long are you looking out for your success?
Are you building your success to be sustainable for the short term or the long term?
The short term is 10, 20, 30, even 40 years because you are likely to still be alive during this time.
A long term outlook is hundreds, thousands, millions, billions, and even trillions of years from now.
You are probably saying to yourself, “okay Marcus, where are you going with this”???
Here is where I’m going:
The body that you are living in today, IS JUST A BODY!
As I type this message right now, your body as well as my body is going through this constant cycle of life and death.
At some point, whether that’s in your 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, or 60’s, your body is going to reach its peak state and then begin to deteriorate.
Yep…. Your body was not made to last forever, but your SPIRIT was!
Believe it or not, you are a “Spirit Being” before you are a human being.
After your time is up on this earth because the body you have housed has reached its end, your spirit and soul will live on….
Now that we have this background text, we come back to the original question. Are you doing things in your life for short term gain or long term success?
Take the Egyptian culture and their pyramids for example. This culture and these monuments were built upon the principles of long term success.
How??? Well the Egyptian culture and their way of life still exist today and of course their pyramids still stand.
I used this example as a metaphor for our lives, because what you do today can be just as relevant hundreds and even more than thousands of years in the future.
But YOU ARE THE DECISION MAKER for this choice.
It’s not an if this is “true” because the facts are all around us and in the history books.
You finding out what your purpose is, doing your best at it, and letting the results speak for themselves is what you need to focus on IF you are living and building for LONG TERM success.
If not, simply fall in line with the rest of the crowd that is satisfied with mediocre results.
As Super Achievers, complacency and mediocrity is painful to us. It’s our kryptonite. If you are a Super Achiever focused on building for long term success, share this message with our fellow Achievers!
