Joe Land with wife Krista in Sept. 2009

Joe Land with wife Krista, Sept. 2009

Last week I received some very sad news. A good friend and an amazing individual, Joe Land, passed away. He was only 65 which seemed far too young for a man who had done so much, given so much, and certainly had much more to offer.

The news of his passing made me cry, however, when I stopped to consider all he had done in his life, I could only smile. I am certain he was in the middle of some great project, chasing whatever idea had most recently grabbed him. He never stopped going after the things he wanted.

Joe, a grammar school drop-out, was a self-made millionaire who helped people all over the country find fulfillment and happiness through his subliminal learning techniques, tapes, and books. He was also one of the greatest public speakers I have ever heard. He really knew how to live life to the fullest and loved what he was doing. He was an inspiration to me and, as evidenced by the fact that he always got a standing ovation whenever he spoke, to many others as well.

But suddenly he is gone and yet I am certain he left with no regrets. I am glad Joe was able to live such a full and amazing life. But many other people take too long to try and grab their dreams and make a life they are truly happy with. And that is what I’d like you to take away from this little story—that there is no time to waste.

If you aren’t working towards what you really want, get started, right now, this very minute. If you are taking steps to build your ideal life, are you putting your all into it? Take time to re-dedicate yourselves to living every day to the fullest and set your minds to go after what you really, really want in life. There is no time to waste and no good reason to wait. Go out and live. And live well.
