Morning Cup of Joe – August 10, 2011

Don’t give up 3 seconds before the miracle happens.

The interesting thing about setting goals is that we really don’t know the exact date when we’ll accomplish them. Yet we continue to work diligently and hastily toward our goals. In many cases, we’ll never know the exact date because many people give up right before they get the thing they were working so feverishly for. Many people give up because they lack the necessary patience and perseverance required to accomplish any goal.

We would not have the joy of enjoying the world’s most famous fried chicken had Colonel Sanders given up on his dream of franchising his original recipe. Colonel Sanders was rejected over 1,000 times before he finally heard his first YES! It may take you 10,000 times or 10 times to accomplish your dreams, either way, do not give up. We can only imagine what would’ve been had he not persevered and remained disciplined enough to continue to keep trying until he received a favorable response.

How many of us have given up after hearing our first ‘No’? The key to accomplishing any goal is endurance. Are you willing to do whatever it takes for as long as it takes in order to realize your dreams? That is exactly what it takes to win. You must be willing to endure the tests in order to discover the answers. We appreciate that which we work the hardest for. If you want your dreams to come true, you must be willing to travel unchartered territory. You must be willing to outlast the criticism, doubt and negative energy freely offered by those who doubt you. You must be willing to accept the fact that nothing and no one will keep you from accomplishing your dreams.

Friendly Reminder: Every ‘No’ means you’re that much closer to a ‘Yes’.

Why do some people fail?

Stop worrying about whether you will MAKE or MISS the shot, you’ll never know until you TAKE the shot!

So many people waste so much time at the line wondering if their shot is going to go in or not. The problem comes when you think so much that you neglect to act. If you don’t take the shot, eventually time will run out on the clock and the game may be over. Most people have the necessary tools at their disposal but are afraid or unwilling to simply try or do. A self-induced scare tactic.

Visual: You are standing at the edge of a cliff but can not see the bottom. Do you jump? You never know if you will land on a bed of pillows or a bed of thorns but you will never know until you JUMP!

Bottom Line, Take Chances! Remember, the greater the risk the greater the potential reward.
