As I was driving to work today, Travie McCoy's song came on, and my mind carried me away on an interesting train of thought that I would like to share with you today.
I'm sure many of you have heard the song I'm talking about. If not, then I'll fill you in; the chorus goes:
I wanna be a billionaire so freakin' bad |
Buy all of the things I never had
I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine
Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen
Oh everytime I close my eyes
I see my name in shining lights, yeah...
A different city every night, oh
I swear, the world better prepare
For when I'm a billionaire.
Then, I wondered how many of those millions of people who want to become not even billionaires, but at least millionaires ...
... and how many of those are actually on track to becoming one?
Probably not many.
So as the song ended, it kind of left me with the following question - for myself, for my friends that I was giving a lift to work, and now for you all to ponder on: what are you doing to make your success more than a daydream?
