Motivational Moment: Meet Melissa. A couple of days ago, I went to a retail store shortly after 9:00 a.m. to purchase a few thank you cards that I needed to send out. Melissa was the cashier and greeted me with a big smile and great service to match. Later that evening, after a daylong business trip, I had to put some gas in my car. It was around 10:30 p.m. Guess who was at the front counter of the gas station? Yep. Melissa. I said to her, “Wow. I just saw you this morning. Why are you working two jobs?” She took my cash and replied warmly, “That’s what you gotta do to make things happen.”
She has goals and a vision for achieving them. Everybody wants to be successful, but very few people are willing to put in the extra work—for a season—to make it happen. There are a lot of principles that I live by and MSI (Multiple Sources of Income) is definitely one of them. Kudos to Melissa for the nice surprise at the gas station. She reminded me: If you want it … GO GET IT!
