I’ll end the last day of July and begin the first day of August with the most inspiring article I’ve read and also one of the most inspiring motivational speakers I’ve come across till date. This post will be in 2 parts. Enjoy and share!
According to George Zalucki, “The superhighway to success is laden with disappointments, frustrations, and countless failures.” It is how you handle these realities that makes all the difference in the outcome of your life and business. The key is “inclusion” and “stickability”!
No one who ever achieved a big goal avoided these three “wreckers” of success. This trio overtakes the weak, but “steels” the strong with greater determination. If you can’t avoid them, and you seriously desire to win, then you must get tough and include them. They will eventually become less burdensome, but they will never completely disappear. That is just the way it is! Remember, there is no traffic jam at the top. You need to be resilient to get there.
General George Patton said, “I don’t measure a man’s success by how high he climbs, but by how high he bounces back when he hits obstacles.” There may be many roads to Rome but there is only a very narrow road that leads to financial success; but it is very well defined. A person committed to reaching financial independence will get on that road and not detour one bit. The success road is very straight, very well lit, with lots of caution signs, and you can be certain that potholes and bumps will be encountered along the way. But, you can also be assured that if you stay on it you will eventually succeed. If winning is about a firmly rooted desire to succeed, then one must get their mind in focus, and their emotions under control. Otherwise expect to lose. A clear vision of “What” you want, and “Why” you want it, is the starting point, and also the “magnet” that draws your will into action.
Remember that the human will is very reluctant to be pushed, but it is easily drawn toward a vividly desired goal. You can make your goals inevitable by employing a vivid and sustaining picture of what you are striving for; be it a new car, a new home, a new career, a new lifestyle, or financial independence. Henry Thoreau said, “If one advances confidently, (remember tentative lacks power) in the direction of his dreams, and endeavours to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.”
