Don't follow the crowd

Society's commonsense tells us that that is the way to go. Unfortunately, commonsense is not always good-sense. It's just common. If you are a dreamer you cannot afford to work on society's assumptions and standards. You have to be unique.

For instance, a lot of people have spent anything from 15 to 20 years getting an education so they can have that perfect job and earn a huge salary. Unfortunately for most, the perfect job and the huge earnings never materialize. They only have the long hard years of work and loads of papers with unpronounceable names to show for it. According to Dr. Moses that most of them have lost touch with the very people they are working so hard to provide for - their husband, wife and children, all because of having to “work hard” for a living.

It's not the easier way. Actually, it is more likely to be the harder way. But I guarantee you it is the best way. It is simply this – follow your dreams. If you can think it, you can have it.

Get-rich-quick and easy success schemes don't last.
