My brother retired this week after 30 years of working for the USPS. During that time, he never made a million dollars a year but faithfully he went to work and little by little earned the opportunity to retire at 56 years old. He is financially set for life and can even start another career.
Where do you need to be faithful? Where do you need to just show up every day and do your job? It might not be for an early retirement but maybe it is in losing weight or raising your children or serving at your church. I wish there was a magic bullet that can make all of those things happen without taking so much time. But just like it takes almost 2 years of gestation for an elephant to be born, big things take time. Choose today to do the next right thing.
