The Mentality of Success, Having A Team, And More (#SundayReflections)

There are the success stories. These are the small business owners that took risks and branched out. Now their working their way to millionaire status if it hasn't already happened. None of them have to worry about clocking in. They are the ones who make sure the employees are working extra hard to fulfill their dreams. They were once the employees who had big dreams. They dreamed and dreamed until they became restless.

I imagine restless people have certain mental tools to get them ahead. They have a desire to move forward from where they already are. When they check their bank accounts it's never enough. They like to spend money on ideas and new shiny toys. People like Oprah, Kim Kardashian and Beyonce are their inspiration. Plus they can't imagine having to go days of living on noodles, soup, and other nasty food for under $1 in the grocery store. They have expensive tastes, so at some point their credit cards are charged up to crazy amounts that can't be paid off overnight. On top of it all, they have a team. This team consists of people who are strong in areas where they are weak. This team consists of people who believe in the dream just as much as them.

Then there are the super successful people. Some of the popular names for 2014 include Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, Oprah, Beyonce, and Jay-Z. While we are not always clear on the formula to success we know we want to be like them one day. Every now and then they may receive criticism from the world for their radical views, but they are financially set for life. They are the group of people who wear the expensive designer labels for free or get the expensive jewelry without shelling out any bucks. They come up with ideas and the dreamers are willing to spend their last $20 on the CD's, books, and even cable to add the extra channels. They're inspirational.

Then there is the average American citizen. Some are working toward a bigger goal while others are just working to pay the bills.
