Did you know that 20% of millionaires never set foot in college?
Even Bill Gates and Steve Jobs dropped out of college! Plus there are countless other examples of people who became successful in their field or who started a new path in their life without “prerequisites” such as schooling, age, or finances — simply because they believed they could accomplish what they wanted.
Take six-year-old Ryan Hreljac for instance: Shocked to learn that children in Africa had to walk many miles every day just to fetch clean water, little Ryan raised enough money to build a well in northern Uganda by the time he was eight.
Today, Ryan’s Well Foundation has completed 878 water projects and 1,120 latrines in 16 countries.
- The famous chef Julia Child didn’t even learn to cook until she was 40. She was 51 years old when she launched her show The French Chef, which made her a household name.
- 48-year-old Susan Boyle skyrocketed onto international stage when she sang on Britain’s Got Talent. Since then, she has recorded five albums that have sold over 19 million copies and received two Grammy nominations.
Today’s affirmation for meditation and reflection:
🌷 I am choosing every day to believe that I am worthy and deserving of success, no matter my age or my circumstances.
