Every champion must be willing to believe in his own dream when others seem too busy or uncaring to encourage him. Every great inventor, such as Thomas Edison, faced waves of ridicule and scorn before their genius was recognized and appreciated.
Don’t forget to keep your focus on where you are going and refuse to be discouraged by the present circumstances that will soon pass. Aloneness removes the stain of the wrong influence.
CREATE SMALL SUCCESSES WHEN THE LARGE ONES SEEM IMPOSSIBLE
The secret of champions is their refusal to quit trying. Futility is merely a feeling, conquer it and keep heading toward your goals.
Create small successes when the large ones seem impossible. Even skyscrapers are built a brick at a time. Quitting does not really give you what you really want. Every step away from yesterday is significant progress.
ACKNOWLEDGE HELPFUL INSIGHTS GLADLY
Recognize those God sends into your life to inspire and energize you. Acknowledge helpful insights gladly, and resist the temptation to become defensive and belligerent.
Find ways to reward those who have made your goals and dreams come true. Those who honor you deserve the very best of you, your time and energy.
PEOPLE SEE WHAT YOU ARE BEFORE THEY HEAR WHAT YOU ARE
You are a walking message system to others. Your clothing communicates an attitude toward the goals you are pursuing.
People see what you are before they hear what you are. Even Joseph dressed to create acceptance in the palace of Pharaoh. Presentation is your gift to others. It reveals what you consider most important.
ENTHUSIASM IS THE ONLY CLIMATE THE SEEDS OF SUCCESS WILL GROW IN
Enthusiasm breeds excitement. Enthusiasm is the only climate the Seeds of Success will grow in. If you want others to get involved in your dreams and goals you must exude an aura of excitement.
Your energy will attract others to your dream. Thought and talk magnify anything. Reactions to your enthusiasm purges relationships. Reactions to your enthusiasm should decide who receives the gift of access to you.
