“The secret of vast riches begins with a penny”
That’s what the fortune read in Grace’s cookie when she went out for a girls’ dinner at Pei Wei the other night. Of course, she couldn’t resist sending me a picture of the actual fortune…which I ADORE!!! I’d share it with you here…but apparently this program doesn’t speak “bitmaps.”
But what I can share with you here is that this philosophy is exactly how The Penny Project has unfolded over the last three fun-filled years I’ve been doing it…one penny at a time!
What I’ve found is that by focusing on the little things, the next step, or just sharing my joy about where I am right NOW in the penny journey…bigger, better things have unfolded. In fact, by sharing my penny bliss in the leadership program I’m in, I’ve been invited to attend the Social Entrepreneur Alliance Summit in San Francisco later this month. I’ve even got some fancy-schmancy new business cards printed up for the event that convey the best things really DO come in small packages!
My goal is to work with non-profits & small companies doing great things to help them find the “pennies” they may be overlooking in their environment (staff skills, connections, untapped resources). Won’t that be fun?!
So, don’t go out today looking for a million dollars or wondering if you have the ability to find/earn something that big. Instead, go out KNOWING there are pennies all around you and that noticing them is the first step towards a life of good fortune!
