You’ve got to Pay to Ride the Road to Success

Shark pic

 

The Great White Shark is the most feared predator on the planet. It relentlessly prowls the waters, hunting where it will and in fear of nothing for it has no natural challenger save the Orca.

However, to be successful, the great white shark must do one thing. It must keep moving forward at all times. If this particular shark stands still, it becomes just another drowned carcass swallowed up by the vast ocean and fed upon by others.

Successful people across the board share this shark-like trait. They keep moving forward, they are diligent, they don’t give up and they work as hard and as long as necessary to reach their goal. they learn from their failures but they don’t live in them. They refuse to drown in mediocrity.

Everyone wants to be successful, and if it were easy, everyone would be. But it’s not easy and therefore, too many are not.

Life will inevitably throw obstacles in path, adversity will strike and circumstance will conspire against you.

Look around you, there are plenty of talented and gifted people who failed to reach their full potential because for them, the price was too high, it was too hard, it took too long so they gave up the fight. Quite often, it is not talent that makes the difference but perseverance.

Be the shark, keep moving forward. Your dreams, your goals, your success is worth fighting for.

Remember,

The road to success is a toll road and that toll of diligence and hard work, MUST be paid.There is no shortcut around hard work and diligence.

You were born to accomplish great things. Don’t drown in the sea of mediocrity. Keep moving forward toward your destiny.

 

You can help pave the way to success for the next generation.

Vision is great but have a PLAN as well

Vision

If you can see it, you can be it.

This is true, but its not the whole truth.

You need a plan for turning your vision into reality.

If you haven’t done so already, formulate your plan of action and write it down. don’t keep it filed away in your head. Keep your plan in a place where you can see it everyday and use it, because…

Write your plan

Committing your vision to paper in the form of a plan also helps build the courage and resolve that are required in order to be persistent in working toward your goal, whatever it is.despite the inevitable obstacles and failures along the way.

Having all the right tools for success is worthless if fear of failure keeps you from using them.

So, don’t let your vision drift away as a daydream. Make a detailed plan of how you will bring your vision to life, write it down and then WORK your plan diligently and courageously and watch the sparks fly.

Brave Enough To Fail inspires young people with the courage and preparation to activate their dreams, goals, gifts, and talents.

Your generous donations help launch the dreams of the next generation.

Know Your Dream THEN Follow It

Finding your Dream

Follow your dream.  A simple instruction that is much easier said than done. And it is impossible to do if aren’t sure exactly what dream you’re supposed to be following.

How do you figure out what your dream, your destiny is?

Start by looking inward and asking yourself some questions.

What makes you…

Happy?

What is that thing that you love to do?

You’d be willing to do it every day for no money. (But you’ll take it of course)

Angry?

What is that problem that gets under your skin like no other and that you would love to solve?
Henry Ford was angered at the idea that it was impossible to mass produce an internal combustion engine.

Cry?

What is the issue or thing that you are so passionate about that it can bring you to tears?                                                                                                                 Nancy Goodman Brinker lost a beloved sister, but the world gained the Susan G. Komen For The cure Foundation.

What are you gifted to do?  What do you do best?

What is that thing that, when you do it, it brings out the very best in you?

There’s No Shortcut Past Hard Work

Road 2 Success

There is no shortcut around hard work.
Actually. There are plenty of shortcuts around hard work and people choose to take them all the time.
However,there are no shortcuts around hard work that lead to success.
Just ask the average successful starting entrepreneur, who according to Princeton Review, works about seventy hours a week.
I learned this lesson the hard way.While building my own syndicated radio network, I worked really hard at finding a shortcut around the grunt work of making advertising sales calls. I didn’t just fail, I failed miserably and expensively.
It wasn’t until I stopped looking for shortcuts that I found the right path.
Your dream isn’t going to materialize on its on, you’ve got to work it into reality, and that work is hard.
There is a popular saying, “If it was that easy, everyone would do it.”
I prefer,

Anyone can do it

Don’t Buy the Lie

Push Past the lie

In order to achieve our dream, we must first, truly believe in our dream.

Right in the middle of the word BELIEVE, is the word LIE.

The lie is what stands between us and the courage to have faith in, and commit to our dream. The lie tells us that we can’t do it, that the cost is too high, that we are too old, and one of the most powerful lies of all…that we will fail.

In my opinion, one of the biggest lies of all that society drills into us is that..”To fail is bad.”

Fear of failure is the destroyer of more dreams that anything else I can think of.

In order for us to overcome fear of failure and push past that lie, we must first understand the true meaning of the the “F” word and what it stands for. The word FAIL is simply an acronym for…
