“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 11

June 22, 2009

REASON # 11 – You have something that you have
always wanted to do, but never got around to doing
it. And you know you never will.

I always wanted to do what I am doing now…I just didn’t
realise it.

Now I am fulfilling my dream, against all the odds. Many
people I know wish that they could do this…or do that…
but they always somehow find an excuse why they can’t.

Everybody has an interest, hobby, or skill that they could
happily get lost in for a few hours. If you think that you
may not…you are probably not thinking hard enough!

The key to finding out what it is you really love to do is
to ask yourself this question -

“What thing would you happily pay to be able to do?”

If “watch TV” is the answer…you’ll have to try harder!

Sometimes…you may not even realise that you are doing it.
For example…I have a good friend of mine who is a good
talker…he could strike up a conversation with a passer-by
within 2 seconds of meeting them. It’s a talent that comes
naturally to him.

To me…he’s an ideal

- Network marketer
– Salesman
– Real estate agent

Or any number of occupations where “relationshipping” is the
key to getting on and being successful.

If he worked in one of those fields…I am sure that he
would be a success. Instead…he just ‘treads water’ in a
job that pays him well but he gets nothing from it.

All he needs is a job where he gets paid to talk!

Look into how you might be able to make a living from your
talent. Someone, somewhere must make money doing something
similar to what you like to do.

Make sure that if you really want to do something, turn the
‘but’ into a ‘how’ and go for it!

===========================================================

Well, that’s the end of this special free
report – I hope that you got something of value from it.

Thanks for finding out about the “11 Reasons Why You Will
Never Succeed”.

I sincerely hope that this course has benefited you…and
maybe given you a kick-start to get back on track to
achieving the success you deserve.

Nothing can take the place of persistence!

May 27, 2009

One of my favourite quotes is from Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the USA:

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race!”

Persistence - perseverence - that's what it's all about!
Persistence – perseverence – that’s what it’s all about!

I’m being NEGATIVE….helllllp!

April 28, 2009

It’s just dawned on me this morning that I’m being totally negative! I’ve had sore knees for some months now – I don’t know if this is just wear and tear after all these years of playing football/soccer and squash.(I’m 55 in July and I’m trying to keep active as long as possible!)

I’ve only just realized that when I play a game I’m moaning about my injuries and telling friends I’m ‘on my way out’ ‘hanging my boots up’ etc. What am I doing? I’m being so negative! Last year I said I was taking up golf so as not to put any more strain on my knees and forget the footy and squash. And although I really got into the game I have drifted back to my favourite sports. But the reason for recent bad games/results is down to my negative thinking. I’m slipping down the squash leagues, players you I had previously thrashed are now beating me. I’m feeling really sorry for myself and looking for attention. Well, from today I’m stopping this decline! I’ll keep you informed.

In the meantime here’s a cartoon I drew some time ago that helps illustrate the above….

Believe You Can and you can!

Believe You Can and you can!

I read this from Joe Vitale’s ezine this morning and it stopped me dead in my tracks and force me to pull myself together…

If you want to attract money, for example, see
yourself already wealthy, feel the joy of helping
yourself and others with the money, and repeat
this in your mind as much as its fun to do so.

By doing this you will “brand” your mind with the
new you. Once it takes hold (which can be very
fast), and you act on your ideas, you will begin
to attract money.

The lesson here is this: to change yourself you
need to use imagery, emotion, and repetition. Do
all three and virtually anything is possible.

Susan Boyle dreamed a dream!

April 24, 2009

Have you been watching Britain’s Got Talent?
Susan Boyle, has captured the world’s attention.
In case you’ve missed it, she’s a 47-year-old unemployed charity
worker who lives with her cat in a small village in Scotland.
Susan Boyle is a phenomenal role model for all of us, not just
because of her talent or her courage or her perseverance or her
supportive friends. She is a phenomenal role model for us
because she is us, in all our awkward ordinariness and amazing
extraordinariness.
Some say she’s an overnight success – but she has been practicing     her singing since she was 12 years old – so it’s actually overnight is 35 years!

Her YouTube video has received 50,000,000 hits – I’m thinking
of asking her to appear on my web site!!

Susan Boyle had a dream – so can you!

If you can dream it you can achieve it!

If you can dream it you can achieve it!

Vince Lombardi motivational quotes!

April 9, 2009

Cartoon to illustrate some of Vince Lombardi’s inspirational quotes!

Here’s some of my favorite VL quotes about Winning, Winners…

***Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

Win Win Win!

Win Win Win!

***We would accomplish many more things if we did not think of them as impossible.

***Winning isn’t everything, but the will to win is everything.

***People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society.

***The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.

Hope you enjoyed these!?

Attitude is the Key to Life!

March 6, 2009

Attitude is the Key to Life…by John Ahern
Sometimes striving for that balance includes a good laugh and a change in your attitude. Laughing and smiling are great therapeutical tools as well as calming to the body and soul. One of my most practised rituals is to always smile while driving. This is very difficult at times and you may find yourself forcing on that smile.

Try it today and every day for the next couple of weeks and watch your attitude to life and especially driving lift. Then discover the truly wonderful feeling of an automatic smile creeping across all the lines of worry and concern as you sit in the driver’s seat.


Read the following attitude changing message sent to me by a good friend.
As you read the following article think about the way you perceive your own attitude. Enjoy and remember to smile…

David received a parrot for his birthday. This parrot was fully grown with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive. Those that weren’t expletives were, to say the least, rude.David tried hard to change the bird’s attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing soft music, anything that came to mind. Nothing worked. He yelled at the bird, the bird got worse.

Finally, in a moment of desperation, David put the parrot in the freezer. For a few moments he heard the bird squawking, kicking, and screaming, and then, suddenly, all was quiet.

David was frightened that he might have actually hurt the bird and quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out onto David’s extended arm and said, “I’m sorry that I offended you with my language and actions. I ask for your forgiveness. I will try to check my behaviour…”

David was astounded at the bird’s change in attitude and was about to ask what changed him when the parrot continued, “May I ask what the chicken in the freezer did?”

I hope you enjoyed that as much as I did. You can draw several lessons from this article, like: ” I was blue about my shoes, until upon the street, I met a man with no feet.”
Attitude is the key. I must take responsibility for my own happiness and become “the master of my fate”.
