What if?

What if…..you decided to do something different, make some changes, and take some action?

For example, what if ……you decided to create a website that had a sole aim of collecting one penny from every person in China and India, and then decided to direct those funds to a charity?  With these two countries having a population of roughly 2.6 billion people combined, you would be able to amass $26,000,000 to ultimately do some good.  What if you went bigger and attempted to get one penny from every person in the world?  With a world population of  roughly 6, 700, 000,000  people / 100 =  you would have $67,000,000.  Now that would be a nice chunck of change to do some serious good in the world.

What if….you decided to better yourself by one percent each day.  Focusing on ways to be more effective at work, ways to be more creative, socialable, friendly, caring, giving, or just more human.  With a 1% change a day, you would be 31 – 33 % better after a month.  Imagine the amount of change you would experience in all these areas of your life after just a few years of compounded personal growth.

What if ….you decided to read one more additional book per month.  You would have read an extra 12 books per year,  48 in four years, 96 in 8 years,  192 in 16 years, and whopping 384 extra books in 32 years.   You would be a freaking sage.  Your friends and family, and even me,  would be compelled to start calling you professor.

What if…. you decided today to meet one new person per week and befriend them?  After one year you would have 52 new friends, after 10 years you would have 520 friends, after 20 years you would have 1040 friends.  Imagine the amount of possiblities that lie within reach of knowing so many people who trust you.  Imagine the influence you would have with such a group of friends.

What if…… you decided to take some extra risks and push through those inevitable walls set up to test our dreams and deter us from being the passionate revolutionaries we truly are?  Imagine you got through those barriers and received everything you’ve always wanted….

What if you took action? What if you don’t?

What if?
