You know that feeling when everything you try just doesnt seem to work?
You start to question why you are even bothering as nothing is going right for you.
Yep been there loads of times!! Too many times to be honest but one thing I never do is give up!
Oh believe me I have often felt like it. Why can’t I just get a proper job? Why can’t I be normal and happy like other people?.
What makes me think I can do this? I’m just your average girl from Wincobank
Well let me tell you, if you have been feeling like this of late as I am sure some of you have, it’s your perseverance that makes you the person you are today.
Some of the greatest achievers in the World have had knock backs and failures but that didn’t stop them from carrying on did it?
Henry Ford failed and was broke 5 times before he founded the Ford Motor Company
Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and his first business failed
Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because, “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas
Oprah Winfrey fired from her job as a television reporter because she was “unfit for tv.”
Fred Astaire in his first screen test was told “Can’t act. Can’t sing. Slightly bald. Can dance a little.
And my personal favourite
J. K. Rowling: Rowling may be rolling in a lot of Harry Potter dough today, but before she published the series of novels she was nearly penniless, severely depressed, divorced, trying to raise a child on her own while attending school and writing a novel. Rowling went from depending on welfare to survive to being one of the richest women in the world in a span of only five years through her hard work and determination.
So there you have it!!! Look at how they succeeded in the end.
And do you know what they all have in common? SELF BELIEF.
This seems to be one of the hardest things a lot of us can grasp. However this is THE most important thing to becoming a successful person.
So what can you do today to create that little bit more self belief? Step out of your comfort zone and do something different. Anything, it does’t matter what it is as long as you make the commitment each day to do something to becoming that amazingly successful person.
You are on the brink of AWESOMENESS!!! You just have to believe it!!!
