If there’s anyone in history who could impart some valuable advice on how to make it as a millionaire, it’s the Gilded Age steel magnate and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. Born to a poor Scottish family, he began his career as a telegraph messenger boy in the railroad and made small investments into Pennsylvania railroads. A few decades later, he was one of the wealthiest men in America, because he had proven himself on the rails as a hard worker and good manager. When Andrew Carnegie directs us to put all good eggs in one basket, it’s advice that makes sense: when you put all your best eggs in a basket, you’re more likely to have the best basket of them all – and if you keep taking care of that basket, it’ll grow into something much bigger than what anyone could ever have imagined.
You can’t blame the past for the things that went wrong if you aren’t also willing to be thankful for the things that went right - @msrachelhollis
It’s hard to let go of negative feelings about things that went wrong or didn’t turn out the way you had hoped for. It’s easy to hold grudges and be bitter about situations and people who may have wronged you. But what I’ve found to be true in my life is that 100% of times something went wrong, the next thing that came after was completely right. I’ve learned that when I experience disappointment, it’s because something even better is in the works. Today I’m being mindful and thankful for all the things that went wrong in order to bring me all of the things that went right.
"When forgiveness is your path, and love is your reason for being alive at all, and awakening is burning in your heart, then gratitude is never far away." -Jeff Foster #wordfortheday⠀
