On Winning and Failure

What does it take for you to realize that you're FAR more successful than you've given yourself credit for? Today is one VERY special day for you; a day to arouse the giant inside of you that O.S. Marden wrote so eloquently about.   Answer honestly here and I'll help you to change your life today.     TODAY.

How many times have you "failed?"

Like everyone else, you strike out at least twice for every success.
Did you ever consider this?

Do you remember the 3,000 tries it took to learn to tie your shoelaces?  Even when you DID tie them that first time, you probably knotted them up quite a few times, didn't you?

 
You fell down the first time you tried to walk...
in fact, you "failed" hundreds and hundreds of times at this one task...
yet you never gave up trying, did you?

You continued until you suceeded.

Did you ride your bicycle down the driveway first time out?
 
Did you jump into the water and swim the first time you went in?

Did you hit the ball the first time you swung a bat?

Without any known exceptions, those who hit the most home runs also strike out more often.    Babe Ruth struck out not merely 330 times (as if that wouldn't be enough?), rather, ONE THOUSAND, THREE HUNDRED AND THIRTY TIMES -- twice as many times as he hit home runs!!   The next two home run kings... Hank Aaron & Mickey Mantle...were also strikeout kings, who struck out far, far more than they hit home runs!
                        We hope you're not dumb enough to think this is a coincidence.


Anna Mary Robertson, at 76, was 'doomed' by 6 different doctors, told that her arthritis would leave her fingers forever bent & crippled, dependent on others to even dress her each day!!   The 7th doctor suggested she draw with pencils, crayons, maybe a paint brush.   She laughed, saying she'd never held a paint brush in her life.   He told her not to mind that, just focus on working the kinks out of her fingers.     That's how, between the ages of 76 and 94, Anna Mary Robertson painted an astonishing six hundred,  yes,         six HUNDRED masterpiece paintings... using the name "Grandma Moses."
 
Was that enough?   Not for Grandma: between 94 and 100, she created an ADDITIONAL 400 masterpieces, including the famous drawings for "The Night Before Christmas."
!!


R.H. Macy failed seven times before Macy's became the biggest dep't store on earth.


          You think YOU have it tough?       Please.          


English novelist John Creasey got an incredible 753 rejection slips... before he published, get this...five hundred and sixty-four books! 

Are you familiar with the popular "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books? Jack Canfield & Mark Victor Hanson were rejected by THIRTY-THREE publishers, who said it would never sell... before Health Publications published the first of their TWENTY MILLION BOOKS!!


Ted Geisel had TWENTY-SEVEN publishers turn him down before the 28th publisher sold SIX MILLION copies of his first book. You and I know Ted Geisel... by his more famous name... Dr. Seuss!! Yes, the Cat in the Hat went flat... twenty-seven times!!!
 

When was the last time YOU tried something twenty-eight times?

 
Rudyard Kipling received piles of rejection slips, including one that informed him that he didn't know how to use the English Language! Like all winners, he had no interest in the opinions of naysayers, and just kept on keeping on.

 

Stop worrying about failure:
Worry about what you're missing when you try too few times.


Water is useful at 211 degrees fahrenheit.
Washing, drinking, bathing.     Add one and only one degree of heat, and you can push a 30,000-ton ship through the world's oceans.    How many times have you stopped trying ... not realizing that you were just one degree away from success?
 
How many times have you stopped trying ... not realizing you were just one degree away from success Please... ... don't tell us.
Your actions speak so loudly you need not say a word.

 

There's a huge difference between a strikeout... and a failure.
 A strikeout means,
"I struck out this time. Next time I will succeed."
A failure means
"I struck out this time. I will not try again"

  If you know of any exceptions to this rule,
please bring it to our attention  

 
Every intelligent person I've met can talk good game about how good they can be.

Enough already:   don't tell us how good you can be, show us today; show us in the next 10 minutes.
 
Whatever you do in the next 10 minutes is exactly what we'll look back on a year from now.

We'll either remember these next 10 minutes being typical, and half-assed, or we'll remember these next 10 - 100 minutes as being ammaazing minutes of striving for excellence.

A failing, broke appliance salesman, depressed at his inability to provide for his family, entered a theatre in New York on a whimsy to try out for a part in a play called "Mister Roberts."   All these years later, we know that that young man, Paul Newman, has provided well for his family as an actor, AND GIVEN AWAY MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS to charity through the sale of "Newman's Own" sauces and other food products.

How do you want to be remembered: typical & average, or the kind of person who goes for the gold? As always, what you do in the next hour of your life will tell us clearly who you are.  Go for it.   Dare to be more, now!
