Give Up!

December 7, 2017

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.         Thomas Edison

 

How many times have you hit a brick wall when you’re working hard on a project or idea you want to manifest? You just find that you’ve tried and tried but nothing is showing up. Do you give up or to you continue?

I’ve heard it said that the difference between try and triumph is a little umph.

In Napoleon Hill’s book Think and Grow Rich, he talks about a true story of a man who discovered a gold mine but he needed money to purchase the tools to excavate the mother load  out of the ground.  He  borrowed money from his relatives to buy the equipment necessary to dig for it. Unfortunately he hit a wall and found no gold, so he gave up 3 feet from the where the gold was to be found. He sold the equipment to a junk yard dealer who was smart enough to hire an engineer who knew all about how gold is mined, and eureka he discovered the gold.

I know it can be really challenging to keep going when the money gets tight or you’re not seeing what you want. But if you believe in your dream, if you have a strong vision, calling and purpose, keep going. Ask for help and keep moving forward with a positive attitude. You could be 3 feet from your own gold.

If you’re feeling stuck, I can work with you. Let’s talk.

So, You Want to Win the Lottery

September 15, 2015

lotteryThere are millions of people every day, who play the lottery, hoping to win the big prize. The bigger the numbers get, the more people want to win. You got to be in it to win it!According to lottery officials the odds of winning a big windfall of about $540 million are 1 in $176 million. These are not very good odds. However, people still play, believing that they can beat the odds. Hey, someones got to win. There is also some pretty grim stories of peoples lives taking a turn for the worst when they did win. Five years after winning a large sum of money, most people filled for bankruptcy. Not only did they file for bankruptcy, many turned to gambling and drug addiction, went through divorce, committed suicide and murder. You sure do have to be in it to win it!

How about investing in yourself, instead? Set yourself some worthy goals. All you need is a pen, a sheet of paper and some time every day to write and think about what you really want. Then see yourself already in possession of those goals. You see, it’s not the goals themselves that will bring you success, it’s who you are becoming as you work towards them. They are lasting.

So, go ahead, wait on that long line and invest in a lottery ticket. If you want fleeting wealth, then believe in the slogan, you got to be in it to win it. Or, put your money in yourself for lasting wealth, and write a goal, that’s good for your soul.
