Your life is a testament to the idea that nothing is impossible, that if somebody says “no” you say “it is just the beginning”. Success is not a straight line. It’s Crooked as down in the valley as back up over the mountain. Don’t wait for the stars to might reach up and rearrange them the way you want. Create your own constellation. I’m a human being. There is no difference between my humaneness and your humaneness. The only thing is if you’re trying to get there, you cannot stop believing in any way. No matter what anybody says, no matter what anybody tells you. You have to know it beyond knowing to achieve your goals.
When a question was thrown to one of the best footballers of all time, Cristiano Ronaldo, are you the best footballer in the world right now? His response was; “I think so YES. In my mind, I’m always the best. I don’t care what the people thinking and what they say. In my mind, not just this year but always, I’m always the best. I’m always going to say that.”
According to Howard Schultz, Chairman, and CEO of Starbucks, he inspires us to dream big dreams and ignore the naysayers. He said, “Don’t allow anyone, friend, family, acquaintance, Teachers, whoever it is, don’t allow anyone to tell you that what you are dreaming for yourself and your family is not possible. It is possible. I’m also living proof. This isn’t a Hollywood movie.”
Anything you want is possible all you can do is plant your seed in the ground, watering and believe that is what allowed me to be in this position right now is that I wouldn’t stop believing. I would say believe in your direction and do it to achieve success. Spend less time talking about it, more time trying to let you perfect it and put it out there. Position yourself to succeed, I mean you start building your equity, your brand, whatever you’re trying to accomplish. Also, if you don’t do it, nothing is possible. If you try to do it, at least you have the hope.
Sadly, most people don’t even try. Most people try and then stop or give up. Also, very few people try and try and try or do and do and never give up. Those are the people that ultimately succeed and win 3rd failure in a row. Therefore, to achieve success in life you have to believe in yourself. I always believed that the bridge between reality and a dream is work. No idea works unless you have the courage to do the work. Ideation without execution is a delusion because you can have the most brilliant idea in the world but you got a bet on yourself. You can’t think that like that one idea and the way that you think is supposed to happen is the only way that it can happen.
I challenge all of us to say stop finding reasons to find and make excuses that you know we affectionately under called it loser talk and I don’t know. You have got to just will it and focus on making it happen. Focus on one thing, one area and put all of your energy into watering one area. If you spread the water across many seeds, you don’t have as much water for 1 seed. So, focus on one thing.
What I learned from Steve jobs is if you believe enough then you will see it because other people will believe in it, other people create products. So you need to foster the belief in what you are dreaming so that your success becomes a reality. If you can see it here, and you have the courage enough to speak it, it will happen.
