Heather Dornidene had a “good” excuse to finish in last place, BUT she had the FORTITUDE that told her to never give up!!! (Great Video)
When you fall down do you use “good” excuses, giving just short of your best efforts and merely expending a “good try”?
Or do you get up, dust yourself off and push on with all you got?
Believe it or not, you have it inside of you! We all do! Never give up! Fight until the end. This is the heart and soul of a winner’s spirit!
It does not matter if you fall down, because that will happen to all of us; it is what you do afterwards that really counts. In order to have this type of heart you need to know your why, your purpose, your mission, your dream…
This is an essential success principle. The more detailed, the more vivid your dream is, the greater the energy you will have to overcome the obstacles, and the clearer direction you will have. Yet, take note, the bigger the dream, the greater the struggle. Still, keep in mind what Moliere said “The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.”
Have the glorious dream, overcome the obstacles that stand between you and your dream, and then cometh the victory.
Before Jim Carry was well known, before he was famous, before he was wealthy, he would drive up to where the famous “Hollywood” sign that overlooks L.A. stands. There he would visualize his dream. He would dream about being famous and being wealthy. So much that as he overlooked the L.A valley he wrote out a check to himself for 10 million dollars for “acting services rendered” and dated it Thanksgiving day 1995. Just prior to that date he was given a check for his movie “Dumb and Dumber” for how much? Yep, you guessed it. 10 million dollars!
So what is your detailed vivid dream?
And next time you fall down, deny yourself of the “good” excuses and do not take the path of the masses by merely giving it a “good try,” but rather use your winner’s heart and give your all towards your dream.
