Wake Up! You're Missing the Important Stuff.

Why does it take something to happen for you to "wake up" to some of the important things in your life?

Why does it take your wife or husband threatening to leave for you to start fully appreciating your marriage and your family?

Why do you have to get fired to realize what a great opportunity your job was?

Why do you need a doctor to tell you you're one step away from heart disease to get you to change your diet and exercise habits?

Why does it take a loved one falling ill for you to get fully checked out?

Why does it take your child getting in trouble at school for you to really stop and ask him or her how school is going?

Why does it take really bad weather for you to appreciate the beauty of a simply "nice" day?

My friend Harvey Mackay says:

“The little things don’t mean a lot. They mean everything."

The problem is, while we know which things are important in our lives, we're constantly distracted and don't pay them full attention until they've become problematic; until that infamous "wake up call."

Here's a little exercise: Try to think of a few hypothetical wake up calls you'd hate to receive.

Now go appreciate those "little things" before their destruction wakes you up!

  • I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
