The year just began, have you?
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” – Socrates
Let me share this with you to encourage you.
Every year Forbes publishes its list of the top 100 richest people. And in this year's Forbes list of the 'Highest Paid Celebrities in 2018', includes a lot of personalities in the Creative Art industry, not forgetting authors - James Patterson[$86M], J.K. Rowling[$54M].
This is the point, gone are the days' parents hardly encourage their children to go into the creative industry because they believed one will never make it in such a field. Now every dream and career stands the chance of making one wealthy. So, parents and guardians, encourage your wards to read & write books. There's hope for the future. Help them develop their creative abilities.
The youngest millionaire on list #3 is a 21year old Kylie Jenner[$900M], founder of Kylie Cosmetics.
The oldest millionaire on the list, #4 is 76years, Judy Sheindlin[$400M], a TV Personality.
Remember, You are never TOO OLD to DREAM nor TOO Young to Achieve your Dreams Go, make your dreams happen!
“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favour all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamt would have come his way. I have learned a deep respect for one of Goethe's couplets: Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it!” ― William Hutchison Murray
