|In The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, John C. Maxwell writes about an unassuming woman who died after years of working diligently.
She never seemed to have achieved anything great. She wasn’t in a great position of power or authority. She didn’t have many posessions. She was virtually unheard of. What she had done, was the simple things over time. Slow and steady. Kind of like the tortoise in the old fable. No one thought much of her until one day after she passed away, a university received notice that she had left them over $7 Million!
This is a great example of the power of compound interest. The problem is that we don’t think about this as “process”. The more effort we give anything we do, the more we get back from it. Investing small amounts on a consistent basis over time leads to great return.
Invest in yourself on a steady basis over time and you can see great results. Read books. Go to seminars. Go to school! All of these add up. The Law of Process can’t help but result in great wealth. How you define wealth is up to you. More friends, bigger family, more skills, even money. Whatever you invest in will grow, over time. It’s a process.
What will you invest in?
Make it a great day!
What are you thankful for today?
