Success is a road paved with perseverance. The odds are with you if you keep trying.
There is no failure except in not trying. You cannot be beaten at anything, until you quit in your own mind. There is no defeat except from within.
You have no really insurmountable barrier except your own inherent weakness of purpose.
Consider yourself on a very long journey. Sustain your personal vision of success. In the end, you can only fail if you do not try.
Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to is.
To add to that, if your actions show who you are, you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone!
My mentor Les Brown said it another way…
“Lions don’t have to roar. There is power in silence, confidence, and persistence. Those who work don’t talk, and those who talk don’t work. Handle your business. Measure your efforts by results. Focus your time, energy, and activity on mastering and executing a plan.
Avoid the energy draining practice of telling people what you’re going to do. Instead, spend your time and effort in doing the things that are necessary to accomplish your goals. Keep your focus. and stay determined in order to pursue your dream. Let your work, not your words, speak for itself. You deserve!”
However, this doesn’t mean you can’t blow your own trumpet ever once in a while. Heck, if you don’t, no one else will. But there’s a big difference between letting others know about the authentic you and boasting and bragging. Just as the lion doesn’t need to roar for you to know how powerful he is.
P.S.- Let me know your thoughts and insights. If you know of anyone this would help, by all means, pass it on. It’s good to share!
P.P.S. – Not happy with your job? Don’t have a job? Looking for a change of direction? You owe it to yourself to build a career with purpose. IF I gave you a link to an online presentation that explained everything, WOULD YOU click on it and watch it?
