I had a strange day today. It was one of those days. When you feel that it’s not really your day, no matter how hard you try. Did you ever had a day like this? That’s ok, I guess. To feel this way. Even when you decided in the morning that you will be happy the whole day long.
You read all those books, listen to all audio tapes and you try really hard to change your life. You are at the beginning of a journey, a journey of change, of acceptance and gratitude. No one said it will be easy. You will have days like that. When you feel tired. Take a small break. Make a revision about all those things what you have achieved since the beginning of your journey. If you have the feeling that you are stuck don’t be afraid to ask advice and guidance.
Let me tell you about this: it takes a lot of courage to ask help when you feel that you need it. If you really want to succeed, and to change your life don’t stop on your way. Have the courage to stand in front of someone with more knowledge, more expertise than you and ask for help, ask for advice.
I don’t know about you, but I was terrified at my first meeting (which eventually had been postponed). My heart was racing fast, my palms sweating and I had the feeling that I forgot even what I knew. What a disaster it was. Well, that can be a really embarrassing moment, especially when you decided that you want a career as a speaker, you know, to speak in the front of a crowd. And you feel lost in front of a single person. But that’s all right. I have made mistakes. I have learned how to do better, how to be better next time. How to walk, talk and behave the next time. Like this, trying your limits, facing your fears you will win. You will move forward. Face your fears. It takes a hell of a lot of courage. The first time is the hardest. For me it was. But I am prepared for the next one. Are you? Are you ready to face your fears? Are you ready to move one step forward toward your goal?
Be determined to succeed. Have the courage to ask help from the best. Learn from them, never accept rejection, try over and over again, move forward, accept constructive criticism and improve yourself. That’s the way how you will succeed.
Sir Henry Royce once said: “Take the best that exists and make it better”.
So, let’s just follow the advice. And we will all succeed. As everybody deserves success, appreciation, happiness and wealth.
