createbetterGet rich quick schemes generally do not work and even if they do, are they really what you want to be associated with? They generally involve taking advantage of others or doing things that are somewhat questionable. That’s not what this about. Creating a better life, done well, goes beyond just us and into helping others, adding value to their lives as well as our own. Creating a better life should, at least in some small way, create a better world.

The attraction of get rich quick is it appears to require very little work, and who wouldn’t like to get out of working? Well quite frankly, I wouldn’t. I don’t want to get out of working as a matter of fact, I wouldn’t mind working harder. The issue is I want it to be work that satisfies me. I want to do things that I feel really good about doing. I want to feel blessed every time I get to do what I do and I want to live with the knowledge that I am contributing to making things better and helping other people. I personally have found that in art, in creating, in ministry, in speaking and I really love when I get the ability to do all of the above. For me creating a better life is more about finding the way to do what I do more frequently, earning a bit more from it and finding ways to impact more people than I can by just showing up somewhere and speaking. I’ve found the path, what I really want is to expand the reach.

There is no substitute for doing the work, so why not find the work you enjoy and becoming the very best you can at doing it. Seek to help as many people as you can. Wouldn’t it be amazing to be able to live the life you want to live and help to make life better or other people at the same time?

Do the work. It’s a great way to create a better life.
