Have you ever heard someone say, “You can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Isn’t that what cake is for?
Last time I checked, the only time cake was on display only, was never, because if it’s a real cake and someone spent the time to think of it, design it, then create it, it should be consumed. Now, obviously this is a very subject phrase that could have many reasons, although the majority of people do, in fact, think in the way that they must settle for crumbs instead of having the whole cake they want.
The past 3 years I have dedicated my life to learning the psychology of man-kind, as well as learning how to improve or develop the right mental psychology in order to create and live the exact lifestyle you really do want, or “make your cake and eat it.”
Throughout most of my life, not to indulge in a sob story, though, I have watched my parents, friends, and the majority of society do less than they can, have less than they can, and teach that as a philosophy in order to avoid the possible consequences of failure.
I’ve realized that the average person does not drive the car they WANT, but the car they can only afford. Most people don’t live in the dream house they can’t stop designing in their head, but settle for the house they can barely pay for. Most of us would like to not have money be an issue in our lives, I mean, it does take money to buy clothes, graduate through higher education, buy a house, raise children, even fund mission trips or philanthropy events.
A personal mentor of mine, who started as a farm-boy from Idaho, pennies in his pocket, is now a multimillionaire and has spoken in over 60% of the whole world. He teaches that money does not change you, it makes you more of who you are.
That it is our duty as human beings to become as wealthy as possible, not just financially, but mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and physically in order to give back to this planet as much as we can. The key word is as much as you CAN, not as much as you “accept how society tells you how to help others.”
I find that most people DO want to help others in enormous ways, but the challenge is how much they limit themselves to being able to do that.
Les Brown, one of the worlds, if not greatest motivational speakers/business consultants and psychiatrist quotes, “the wealthiest place on earth is not Africa, where there is gold or the Middle East where there is oil. The wealthiest place on earth is the graveyard. There you will find books that were never written. Musicians that never became musicians. Actors that never became actors.”
So, what if you live your whole life, only to find out in the end, that it was wrong. That you had more to eat from than crumbs. You had so much more potential you could unlock and dreams to become a reality. Three years ago I used to work three jobs at the University of Georgia as a freshman, drive an old 1998 Plymouth Breeze, and was so broke that when I walked in to the bank the alarm went off.
Three years later at 22 years old, I have traveled around the world including Guatemala to build two homes and four chicken coups for a village, been self-employed making three times the income, driving a 2013 all white C-250 Mercedes Benz Sedan, published author of the book “Believing In Believing,” and working on retiring my parents in the next 5 years.
That was not at all to be boastful, because all of that was possible and accomplished not by me but through me by God. BUT, it is also a testament that you CAN have your cake and eat it too. Don’t starve yourself thinking you’re doing society a favor. Society needs help, they just don’t know how to ask for it. So get a plate, tons of napkins, and lock the door and give that “cake” you’ve always wanted a go!
This was mainly to inspire you that you can have anything you want in life, help people, and have fun doing all at the same time, you must believe in a different belief and if you’d like to connect with me just for personal relationships, don’t be shy! Dream big, believe big, and achieve big!
