Beam Me Up!
Published on December 23, 2014"Is what we need to become what we want available"? The answer is more than you can imagine. This is one time that I am not writing about the incredible potential that exists inside of you. While this is not one of those times you must know that's an absolute. You are a magnificent being. What I wanted to talk to you about today are the raw materials "out there" that we need to gather up to create what we first imagine. Off the top we live in the greatest country in the world. We have freedom to pursue any goal we can imagine. Safety and health-care and education and a free market with access to most of the world. The one thing that gives all of us a hand up in any situation is knowledge. As they say, "Knowledge is power" and knowledge today is one of the key ingredients to success. We all have something today that multiplies our knowledge potential by a thousand times. It's called the Internet. I know, I'm not sharing late breaking news of its existence but I am pointing to how valuable it is for us all. An example was yesterday. My father in law was over and we were talking about the earthquake. We were debating whether the magnitude of an earthquake multiplies by 10 every decimal point, (ex. 5.6-5.7) or if the 10X magnification comes from 5;.0-6.0. "Lets Google it." Turn's out the answer is 5.0-6.0, a full point on the Richter scale. It struck me that, that one quick "Google" replaced a trip to the library and it did it in 0.09 seconds, providing 39,600,000 search results. I imagined that this was like standing on the deck of the Starship Enterprise and I was just beamed up to the library and taken to 39,600,000 books open to the exact page where I could find what I was looking for. What this can do for us is beyond imagination. The Internet offers at your fingertips the greatest minds, the finest research, unlimited answers, help, direction, connection and more BBQ chicken recipes than you could fathom. If you want to learn how to start a business or exercise, trim a tree, scout out a vacation, hire a new assistant or learn about earthquakes its all there. Know this. The time is right. The tools are there. All that you could ever need and want and hope for is available at the click of a button. All you need do is say, "Beam me up"! Have an excellent day. Be well, Randy Taylor
