Russell Brunson says, “The life you want, the marriage you want, the family you want are all going to be fuelled by the business you build.” This is in agreement with Proverbs 24:27 (ESV), “Prepare your work outside; get everything ready for yourself in the field, and after that build your house.” The Living Bible renders it this way, “Develop your business first before building your house.” Daydreaming about the big things you would like to do in life is easy. But eventually you must answer the question, “How are you going to finance your vision?” You must build a business that will fuel the life you desire.
Your vision will require funding. And expecting to fund your vision with someone else’s money is not a very smart strategy. You must earn your own money. Build a business in order to fund your vision. Sam Altman forsaw that as technology advanced, artificial general intelligence (AGI) would become a reality. He knew the tool could do enormous good but could also be a destructive weapon. Sam co-founded OpenAI with the goal of responsibly bringing AGI to the world. Initially, he established OpenAI as a non-profit organization. When he couldn’t raise enough funds as a nonprofit, he restructured the initiative to become more business-like. OpenAI then went on to create ChatGPT.
You can imagine any kind of life you want. As long as you are prepared to fuel it with a sustainable business. It is irresponsible to expect others to pay for your lifestyle. You are free to imagine whatever impact you would like to have on the world. As long as you can create a viable business to support such a grandiose vision. To have an impact on your world, you must have economic power. Build a business that matches the vision you have. Throw out the idea of being generous with other people’s money.
