Let It Be You
Jim Rohn

Each and every day, there are people all around the country and world who are living their dreams.  Millionaires are made every day.  Families are experiencing tremendous relationships.  People are becoming more and more healthy.  Life-long learners are growing intellectually and improving their chances for success.

The fact is that living the life of your dreams is possible.  People prove that every day.  Someone somewhere is going to get rich, get healthy and improve their life.  My recommendation is this:  Let it be you!

Have you ever wanted to make more money?  Have you ever looked at someone who has money and wished that it could be you?  People think about getting wealthy all of the time, when only a small percentage actually does.  But any of the masses could.  Someone is going to start a business.  Someone is going to make a great investment.  Someone is going to begin the journey to great wealth.  So why not let it be you?

Someone is going to decide to improve their relationships.  Someone is going to enjoy love with their family.  Someone is going to schedule some meaningful time with their friends.  So why not let it be you?

Someone is going to go back to school to improve their life.  

Someone is going to become a life-long learner.  Someone is going to set a goal to read a book or listen to a CD each week for the next year.  So why not let it be you?

Someone is going to look in the mirror and see that they need to lose a little weight and they will make the decision to become healthy.  Someone will run their first marathon.  Someone will join an aerobics class and improve their health.  Why not let it be you?

I think that by now you get the point:  Every day, people are improving their lives.  Whether you do or not doesn't matter to those who do.  They are going to do it, regardless.  It is simply a matter of a decision being made.  Let that person be you!

You may be asking, "Okay Jim, but how?"  Well, let's cover the very simple actions.

The first and most important is to make a commitment to work on yourself.  Are you going to improve or stay the same?  No matter what you have achieved, you are at a certain point right now.  What you have achieved in the past is fine, but it doesn't make a difference for the future.  The decision about what you will become is made each day and every day.  Each day someone is making the decision to better him or herself.  Let that person be you!

The second is to make a plan.  Once you have decided to become better you will have to have a plan.  It doesn't have to be a long, intricate plan.  It can be simple.  Save a dollar a day.  Walk a mile a day.  Read an article a day.  That is a simple plan with achievable goals.  Someone is going to develop a plan that will take them into the future of their dreams.  Let it be you!

The third is to begin to act.  All of the great ideas, without action, become stale and useless.  The key to turning dreams into reality is action.  People who have great ideas are a dime a dozen.  People who act on their dreams and ideas are the select few, but they are the ones who gain the wealth, wealth and wisdom that is available.  Someone will act today.  Let it be you.

My encouragement to you is to stop looking at others who live the good life, wishing that you were as well, and instead begin to commit to your improvement, develop a plan and act on it.  Someone is going to.  Let it be you!
