I once read, “you can wish for gold, but unless you’re digging some dirt, you’re not going to find any.”
This message is for all parts of life. Don’t we all want to make more money, find that perfect job, lose weight and get in better shape?
I can’t tell you how many people have said to me, “I need to lose this gut.” I’ve led countless people to diet and exercise programs, but unless you’re digging some dirt, you’re going to stay fat. We’ve all heard, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink.”
It’s your body, your life, and it’s your destiny. You are the only one who has full control.
I’m going on 54 years of age, and have grown a passion to inspire and motivate people in their business and personal lives.
The Daily News has given me a wonderful opportunity to reach people with hopes of changing lives. I receive numerous emails of how my articles have done just that.
Because of your emails and motivational speaking, my passion has strengthened, so I’m digging lots of dirt to pursue additional opportunities.
I’ve contacted other well-known newspapers, made phone calls, written emails, letters and sent packages to broadcasting stations. I’ve Linkedin with high-profile professionals for stronger connections.
Sooner or later, from all the digging, someone will give me the opportunity to reach a broader base of people.
What do you really want out of life? Remember, you are never too old or too young. My children started a foundation when they were only 8 and 10 years old. They’ve helped thousands of families through The Dekeday Foundation — www.dekedayfoundation.com.
You can no longer control what happened yesterday, but you can start making steps forward right now.
Start by taking action, dig up some dirt and discover gold. The true reward is within you to have the body and life you wish for.
