It's time to create your own luck.

How? By digging up that old dream that once set your heart thumping, and dusting it off. By examining it, mulling over it, thinking about what it would take to implement it. By realizing how truly happy you'd be if you pursued that dream with your heart and soul--and how much happier those who care for you would be inrepparttar wake of your happiness. By knowing how much better offrepparttar 123961 world at large would be from your positive contribution to it.

Bill Gates did this. Not only has he become onerepparttar 123962 wealthiest people on earth, but he has also become our greatest philanthropist. Ever. Millions of people have benefited from his pursuit of his dream. Would this have happened if he'd settled forrepparttar 123963 "lucky to have a job" myth? Of course not.

Just imagine. Creating a life whererepparttar 123964 sun wakes you up, not an alarm clock. Jumping out of bed, rather than crawling out of it, in joyful anticipation of each and every day. Seeing your ideas come to life, getting full credit for them, and being directly compensated from those that succeed. Watchingrepparttar 123965 sun set each and every evening fromrepparttar 123966 home of your dreams, satisfied in knowing you have lived that day fully, and are excited aboutrepparttar 123967 next.

Knowing that you aren't "lucky to have a job"--you are lucky to have a life.

Go for it. Here's to your success.

Are You Living On An Island Of Fear?

Written by Dave Cole

Continued from page 1

The Pacific Ocean wasrepparttar obstacle. His opponent was his own fears of overcoming that obstacle.

He made a plan to escape. The day arrived and Hanks set sail aboard a make shift, rinky dink raft of logs tied together with tree bark and video tape.

He met every adversityrepparttar 123960 South Pacific could throw at him. It wasn't easy, but finally, repparttar 123961 rescue came.

The movie portrayed a very intense drama. An analogy of what life is like for many people. Thousands of folks every day feel trapped in a nowhere life. They feel like their life is being wasted, like they are going nowhere, on a nowhere island with little hope of escape.

Every day these people trudge off to a boring and hopeless job that offers only an existence but no real sense of satisfaction in life as accomplishing anything.

These people know there is a better life out there, a life they so desire, yet it seems so far away. They are trapped on their own island of despair.

Held there, not byrepparttar 123962 island itself, but by their own fears of not being able to overcomerepparttar 123963 adversity and opposition that lies between them and their dreams.

A few do escape from that island. They arerepparttar 123964 ones who finally become sick and tired of living a wasted life, they arerepparttar 123965 ones who overcome repparttar 123966 fear inside.

They start out from their island, not really knowing if they will make it or not. But they look that sea of difficulties square inrepparttar 123967 eye and say, inrepparttar 123968 unforgettable words of Admiral David Farragut, "Damnrepparttar 123969 torpedoes, full speed ahead."
