Wealth is Built

Wealth is Built as you Execute the Plan
The Origin:

Thoughts, or as it truly is, imagination is the father (life-giver, progenitor) of all wealth. Just like all things came from nothing, wealth is created from seeming nothingness. It is the product of an idea, a vision, a possibility, a place called there captured in the deep recess of one's mind. As it were, it is "the capturing (envisioning) of a city with firm foundations, whose maker and builder is God."

That, however, is not the end of the story. For as long as it stays merely as a thought, it is useless. It is mere daydreaming. It is lifeless. It needs a body. It needs to be brought to birth. It needs a rite of passage into this physical, tangible realm. Unexecuted thoughts are just about that, untapped, unmined, unbirth. Thoughts have to be executed to prove their value.

Bring It Forth:

The full stream in bringing a thought, an idea to birth is "dream, plan, execute, learn and refine." You don't have to be the best at anything to do this. You just need to be willing to give it your best shot. That is all life requires of you, a willingness to outwork the competition. And, you know who the competition is. Right? Your very own self.

You don't have to know it all to get started. You just start where you are, laying one stone on top of the other, and learning all along the way. The birth carnal is your imagination. That is your creative acumen and power. Imagination is limitless. If you can conceive it, you can have it. If you can see the invisible, you can have the impossible. 

Think. It's Still Legal

So, find time to think. Find time to dream. Dream of a better world than the one you are presently experiencing. Things surely can get much better. Break down the barriers in your mindset. Imagination opens the door for us to draw our wealth from the permanent, unchanging world, into our temporal, passing world. That which is drawn is of no use if we do not give it "boots and hands." 

The prototype we receive needs to be worked and brought to full life by the agency of "planning and execution.". As great as having a dream is, it is useless without a plan to achieve it. A dream needs a plan (short, mid, and long term) for its coming to fruition. As Stephen Covey noted in his book, Seven (7) Habits of Highly Effective People, “all things are created twice.” 

Finish It, But Start

Your dream and your plan are the first of the two creations. A plan is a connection between where you are right now to where you want to be. It helps to break your long-range plans into smaller ones, which you can begin immediately to work on. The secret to success in life is hitting the road while the desire is hot and fresh. Delay in taking action wanes the power and potency of desire.

At the end of the day, we all are living our days by design, a plan. The questions include, whose design? To what end is it? Like Jim Rohn so rightly said, “If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.” So, take ownership of this one life you have been given
"Wealth is largely a result of habit." - John Jacob Astor.
Most people get stuck at the first creation and never get to the second, execution. Why? They over plan. They overthink the process. They want to get rid of all kinks. They are looking for a picture-perfect plan, where all the I's are dotted and T's crossed. Problem? That plan does not exist. No plan survives contact with reality. It needs to be flexible enough to accommodate reality.
"Riches do not respond to wishes. They respond only to definite plans, backed by definite desires, through constant persistence." (Napoleon Hill)
As good as having a plan is, it is useless if it is never executed. The plan does not have to be picture perfect before execution starts, for there is only so much we know in the now. There will be a whole lot of revisions to the plan during execution. You don’t want to get stagnated in the first creation for there is a lot you’ll never know until you get into the real world of execution.
