What would you do for $10 million dollars. Take the poll:
In a recent survey done by the University of Utah it was found that:
“twenty-five percent of people would abandon their families, 23 percent would become a prostitute for a week, and 7 percent would kill a stranger.” Kill a stranger? Wow.
But I have a different question for you. What would you do WITH ten million dollars?
In other words, imagine someone put ten million dollars in your bank account on Dec 25th.
What would you do?
Let’s say you already took the trip, bought a new house (or two), a new car, imagine you already helped all your family, invested wisely and more. Imagine all those things are already taken care of and you still have $9 million dollars left.
What would you do next?
I recently spent time thinking about this and came up with one word. It’s a word that encapsulated everything I dream about. It’s a word that keeps showing up in every thing I do.
So let me ask you the same question – What would you do with $10 million dollars?
Here are four questions to help you decide:
1. What makes you happy?
Beyond material things and family, what brings you joy? Is there a certain place, person or perception you enjoy.
2. What makes you upset?
Often, those things that we see as injustices in the world, are part of our calling
3. What bores you?
We all do things we don’t enjoy, those things that bore you are good signs of things to avoid
4. What requires the most devotion?
We all want an easier life, a fun place to work, success in everything we do. But as one of my mentors said to me years ago – don’t look for the place of greatest success, look for the places of greatest devotion.
Here’s my challenge to you today – you can do all those things today, you don’t need $10 million dollars to start, you don’t even need $100 dollars. What you need is one thing – determination.
Determination is for everyone, regardless of race, color, status or gender, all of us are equipped and gifted with determination.
As you look at 2016, focus on what really matters to you no matter how young or old you are.
Whether your focus is fitness, faith, health, your job, retiring or raising children, set your eyes on God, He will help you discover what you love.
All you have to do now is dig deep inside, and find it.

Have a great last week of 2015,
