This is based on a quote which really resonated with me taken from Jack Canfield’s Success Principles lectures. The full quote goes like this :-
“Winners are those people who make a habit of doing the things losers are uncomfortable doing”.
This quote is now embedded firmly in my Subconscious and I use it to remind me of how to proceed when I am looking to move towards some of the ambitious Goals which I have set for myself. It makes me go the extra mile, learn new things everyday, invest in my Self Development on a regular basis, minimise the amount of time I spend in front of the television and be prepared to ‘different as necessary and depart from the Status Quo. This was the decision I made some 7 years ago when I left employment with Hewlett Packard and now I am predicting the future as far as my career is concerned – by creating it. As I study the likes of Bill Gates, Alan Sugar, John Assaraf and Oprah Winfrey I understand that their outstanding success can be put down to the willingness to do the things the majority of the population are not prepared to do. The vast majority of the population are in what I term the “Social Hypnosis” and not really, really knowing what their purpose is or here they are going (as determined by some basic questioning at the start of any coaching session).
So, the question I have for you is, how is your life? are you doing what you love to do? in other words :-
if you knew that you could not fail what is it that you would be doing?
and, when is “now” a good time to change? Hope these few words will serve to prompting you into action. As always, any thoughts or comments – do let me know as they are always welcome.
To your success.
