Success is simply a matter of luck. Ask any failure. ~ Earl Wilson
I think I can, I think I can
But I cant confront the doubts Ive had I cant admit that maybe the past was bad - And so, for the sake of momentum Im condemning the future to death so it can match the past
I am constantly amazed at mans immense capacity for self-deception, his ability to argue for his own limitations and the way in which he desperately seeks evidence to support his faith in his own imminent defeat. Its called pessimism, wrapped in cynicism, boiled in defeatism and covered with a thick sauce of hopelessness, served with a generous side of laziness.
There are only two ways to approach life positive and proactive or negative and reactive. I recently read this advice to school leavers: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools they have abolished failing grades and theyll give you as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesnt bear the slightest resemblance to anything in real life! Winners expect to win. They dont accept defeat. They refuse to retreat. When losers fall down, they name, blame, complain and shame. When winners fall down, they bounce right back up again.
I was horse riding with my son and daughter many years ago and my daughter fell off her horse. She hit the dirt very hard and I got a real fright. Without any hesitation and without my prompting, she got right back up on that horse and rode on. In a roller skating championship, she was the only one to fall, and again she got right back up as though nothing had happened, and skated forth. She was the only one to fall, yet she won first place! That is the sign of a true winner. My son started all over again with nothing, in a brand new country with a young family and made a great success of his life. Winners dont stay on the mat for long. They dont say, I think I can - they KNOW they can.
Winners may fail, and they sometimes do, just like everyone else does, but they never lose. Winners demand the best of themselves. They set their own high standards. They are self motivated, they believe in themselves and they create the reality they want. Readers will have one of two responses to this article. Winners will be inspired. Losers will unsubscribe and send me nasty email. I have news for you. You can break the mirror, but youll still be ugly. Winning or losing is a matter of choice, not chance. We can change from winners to losers or vice versa any time, instantly. Its never too late to soar with the Eagles. Join the DollarMakers Joint Venture Forum.
