Today’s Tip – Perception is 9/10ths of the world; How can they? Better yet, How can you?! –
Hard things happen in life, bad things, evil things. Life in all its grand scope sometimes hands you a big steaming pile of crap, it’s what you do with it that counts. Many of the people we look to as role models have had a rough time of it. That’s why they get held up as example of how one can overcome ones obstacles and achieve greatness.
JK Rowling – Harry Potter anyone? Depression, anxiety, fear all this and more. She did it. She has more money then she can use and donates about half to help others.
Rosa Parks – Talk about adversity. Tired of not being held back because of her skin tone, she took the smallest step, that had the biggest impact. Think about that, she sat down and the United States changed.
Rick Allen – One armed drummer? Really.. one arm? He overcame, because he chose to.
Ray Charles – Blind, and better than everyone.
Whats stopping you? What’s keeping you from taking that one small step to head you on the path to the greatness within yourself? I’m betting it’s nothing but yourself. No one can stop you from striving for more except for you. Maybe you need to be pushed a bit, prodded some or given a swift kick from time to time but in the end it all comes down to what you are willing to do to achieve your goals. So what are you willing to do? Lose and arm or a leg, become so depressed your convinced your kids going to die, become blind? Sometimes its so very simple, like sitting down when everything you know, everything you have been taught and everyone tells you you cannot. Whats it going to be?
