Failure is NOT an Option!
Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.
- Mark Twain -
How many times have you been told "You can't do that"?
Article by: Woodring Saint Preux
How many times have you been told "This is impossible"?
Think back to that time when someone reminded you of what you cannot or should not do, then answer this question for me:
Are they really saying...?
"I can't do it, therefore you should not"
"I failed, therefore you should not succeed"
"I am too afraid to try, Therefore you should give up now"
"It's too hard for me to even think about, so quit so you don't make me feel bad"
What am I trying to tell you?
Most of the time, you will get the advice you are looking for from the wrong person.
You will try to get the best advice from the closest to you.
Those who love you,
They will protect you...
Even if it means not letting you succeed...
They won't let you "Go For It" If they are afraid "it's not going to work".
If you need advice to change your life for the better, you should never ask a person who is in the same boat as you; you should never ask a person who is worst off than you are.
Don't ask your next-door neighbor!
I remember the very first network marketing meeting I want to... The host of the meeting said something that I will never forget for the rest of my life.
"If you want to become really wealthy, you should never ask your next-door neighbor. If he knew the answer, he would not be your next-door neighbor."
Real life example
I love my father dearly, but this time I had to disobey!
In 1999, I have to make a really tough career decision. I was up for a promotion and it was given to a person who knew absolutely nothing about that job.
I was not too happy about that, but something made me even angrier...
My boss wanted me to train him...
He wanted me to train him on something I spent my time and my money to learn.
That afternoon, I went home and I told my father. I told him I would rather quit than to do it.
My father suggested that I just do it and let it go.
"Woody, you are fortunate enough to have this job.
You don't even have a green card and you are making $24,000 a year.
You wear a suit and tie to go to work everyday.
Some people would pay to be in your shoes.
Don't be silly... "
I completely understood what my dad was saying. He was worried about my job security and other things that I had no control over.
I didn't do what my father suggested, instead I confronted my boss.
I didn't get the position... but I got a $12,000 increase in my salary.
Did I train him?
For $12,000... Of course I did!
Here is a FREE Advice for you!
Never tell yourself what you cannot do. If you do that, then you just locked all your abilities and your will to succeed in a vault, and you just threw away the key.
If don't believe in yourself, nobody else will ever believe in you.
Tell yourself that as long as you live...
When it comes to success and achieving my goals in life, Failure is NOT AN OPTION!"
