Have Some Class

I saw this in an email I got today and found it inspirational in an idea sense. In this I think of the term World Class not as a better class of people or even a label, but as a different perspective on life itself. A new way to view things. A more open minded, heart centered, and positive approach to the world and the way we approach it. I enjoyed all of the comparisons below, but number four is by far my favorite: To be comfortable being uncomfortable. Now doesn't that sound nice?

1. The Middle Class competes…the World Class creates.

2. The Middle Class avoids risk…the World Class manages risk.

3. The Middle Class lives in delusion…the World Class lives in objective reality.

4. The Middle Class loves to be comfortable…the World Class is comfortable being uncomfortable.

5. The Middle Class has a lottery mentality…the World Class has an abundance mentality.

13. The Middle Class has pipedreams…the World Class has vision.

14. The Middle Class is ego-driven…the World Class is spirit driven.

16. The Middle Class thinks they know enough…the World Class is eager to learn.

17. The Middle Class chooses fear…the World Class chooses growth.

18. The Middle Class is boastful…the World Class is humble.

19. The Middle Class trades time for money…the World Class trades ideas for money.

20. The Middle Class denies their intuition…the World Class embraces their intuition.

21. The Middle Class seeks riches…the World Class seeks wealth.

22. The Middle Class believes their vision only when they see it…the World Class knows they will see their vision when they believe it.

23. The Middle Class coaches through logic…the World Class coaches through emotion.

24. The Middle Class speaks the language of fear…the World Class speaks the language of love.
