Room at the TOP

“There is always room at the Top!” — Daniel Webster

If you make a life choice to remain among the ordinary, you will find yourself fighting for a place to sit, room to move, places to go and things to do, due to the amount of others trying to do the same thing. What Daniel Webster and Zig Ziglar both found out was at the top there was more space, more fresh air, more freedoms, and more things to do with less waiting and so much more to see and enjoy.

Truth is, we all want to be at the top, but few are willing to pay the ticket price it costs to get there. Only a few will take the risks necessary to reach the top. It is similar to climbing mount Everest. Very few would turn down the ability to stand on the summit IF THEY DIDN’T have to risk their lives to reach it. The fact is, getting to the top requires an amount of risk few are willing to take and that applies to any point of origin unless it is being among the ordinary. That requires no extra effort. Just sluff along in life and you will find yourself among the rest receiving the crumbs that fall off the tables of those that are at the top.

As for me and my house, that is not our way. We have chosen to do what it takes to reach the top. We have chosen to sit on the peaks of life by doing what it takes to purchase the tickets necessary to reach that destination. This requires action on our part. It means we can’t wait for something to happen, we must be responsible for making something happen. Don’t wait for the timing to get better. The timing is now and that is because the time will never be just right. We need to make things happen using whatever tools we have available to us now. As we begin moving forward using those tools, better tools will be recognized and found along the way that will help us achieve our goals. The key is to get going. Don’t wait.

Often people don’t try due to their fear of failure. Their fears keep them from becoming all they were meant to be. Their fears keeps them from reaching the top. They are concerned of what others would say if they tried and failed, thus those concerns keep them from trying. That didn’t stop them from getting back up when they fell as a toddler while learning to walk. Og Mandino said, “Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” This is the mindset we need to have and to keep. This mindset will provide the tenacity it takes to see each desire through to its birth and maturity. It will get us to the top where we can enjoy more of what life has to offer each and every one of us.

Best of LUCK as you
