“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!

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 10

June 19, 2009

REASON # 10 – You worry what your family and
friends would think about you if you read or listened
to self-development material.

Im going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I'm going to be one...a SUCCESS!

I was always embarrassed about reading self-development
books on the train into work.

That was until I realised who was still going to be on the
same train in five years time, and I knew it wasn’t going to
be me!

I still get raised eyebrows from my family, but I will be
the one who is smiling when I achieve what I know that I can
achieve. Only this evening…my sister laughed out loud when
I told her that my eBook was called “The Science of Success”

But…at least I am doing what I want to do.

I take my personal development seriously.

Others may ridicule you…or laugh behind your back…but
they will be the jealous ones when you reach your dream…
and they are still stuck in never-never land!

So the moral of the story is…

Do what you want to do with your life…and not what others
say you should do.

REASON # 8 – You believe that you can only make
money if you have money.

You Cant Beat A Great Desire!

You Can't Beat A Great Desire!

If you were to analyse how self-made millionaires made their
fortune, you would undoubtedly find that most of them started
with practically nothing.

With opportunities such as Network Marketing and the Internet
ordinary people have the opportunity to start a business at
very little cost. The degree of effort, and not the amount of
money, separates the rich from the poor.

Why is it that when you look at the Western world there is a
higher proportion of ethnic-minority millionaires than in the
general population? Part of it may be in the difference in
cultures…but the biggest reason is DESIRE.

How many stories do you read year after where millionaires
are interviewed…and they say that they came to America with
only the clothes on their back?

Because they appreciate how lucky they are…and what an
opportunity it is for them…they work…and work…and work.

They work until they become successful. Money doesn’t come
into the equation.

Success is a feeling…it isn’t an amount.

Once you realise that, you will realise that money is just a
part of the overall package.

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 7

June 10, 2009

REASON # 7 – You look at what you can buy with
your salary increase – not how much you can save.

I know many people that have homes to die for. The only
problem is that their mortgage is bigger than the house!

The equation is simple – if you increase your borrowings in
line with your salary you will be poor when you retire. If
you increase your savings in line with your salary you will
become rich when you retire. It’s really that simple.

In the classic book “The Richest Man in Babylon”, George S.
Clason wrote that if you saved 10% of your salary every
month…you would become rich. Although the book was written
in the early 20th century…it’s probably more relevant than
ever.

Save a proportion of your salary every month…even if it is
only 1%. And make sure that you cannot easily access it. If
you do this…not only will you have some money behind you
…but you will also get into the habit of saving.

Believe me…once you get into that habit…you will get as
much pleasure from saving and investing as you do from
spending.

It may seem unbelievable to you…but take my word for it -
it’s true!

Cartoon to illustrate – No FREE lunches!

June 5, 2009

“There ain’t no free lunches in this country. And don’t go spending your whole life commiserating that you got the raw deals. You’ve got to say, ‘I think that if I keep working at this and want it bad enough I can have it.’ It’s called perseverance.”

Lee Iacocca
Businessman and Former CEO of Chrysler

Perseverence - I want it bad enough!

Perseverance. - I want it bad enough!

Here’s a few of my other favourite motivational and inspirational quotes…

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t. – Henry Ward Beecher

Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs.  Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger.  If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.   – Dale Carnegie

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

Cartoon – Britain’s Got Talent!

June 2, 2009

I started drawing this cartoon up last week – then got sidetracked with urgent pressure jobs, so it’s probably lost a bit of it’s effect now that the show is over. But it still has a motivational message underneath it – YOU SHOULD NEVER GIVE IN!

Moral: “Anyone can give up, it’s the easiest thing in the
world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else
would understand if you fell apart, that’s true strength.”

(Even Simon Cowell gets it wrong sometimes!)

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART 6

May 29, 2009

REASON # 6 – You believe that you should enjoy
life whilst you can.

So you might get run over by a car tomorrow…but the
chances are you won’t.

Thanks to advances in healthcare, you could well be
retired longer than you worked for. Never let your
borrowings grow old with you; pay them off as soon as you
can.

What is the biggest cause of arguments between married
couples? Money.

What is the biggest cause of the poor getting poorer and
the rich getting richer? Abuse of money.

Have you noticed that the most addictive substances are
those that have to be replaced again and again?

- Alcohol
– Cigarettes
– Drugs

I would put money firmly in the same category. The
people who want more money the most…go out of their
way to dispose of it and get the thrill as quickly as
they can.
Rich and successful people look after their money.
They nurture it, so that it reproduces and grows. Poor
people waste it.
If you spent $3 every working day on a coffee instead
of putting the money towards paying off a credit card
…then you would be almost $6,500 worse off after 5
years!!!
Just for having a coffee!
I hope that these steps have helped you realise that
it’s the little things that make a difference!

A-Z of self improvement!

May 28, 2009

MOTIVATION, THE HEART OF SELF IMPROVEMENT

Pain may sometimes be the reason why people change. Getting flunked grades make us realize that we need to study. Debts remind us of our inability to look for a source of income. Being humiliated gives us the ‘push’ to speak up and fight for ourselves to save our face from the next embarrassments. It may be a bitter experience, a friend’s tragic story, a great movie, or an inspiring book that will help us get up and get just the right amount of motivation we need in order to improve ourselves.

With the countless negativities the world brings about, how do we keep motivated?

Try on the tips I prepared from A to Z

A – Achieve your dreams. Avoid negative people, things and places. Eleanor Roosevelt once said, the future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

B – Believe in yourself, and in what you can do.

C – Consider things on every angle and aspect. Motivation comes from determination. To be able to understand life, you should feel the sun from both sides.

D – Don’t give up and don’t give in. Thomas Edison failed once, twice, more than thrice before he came up with his invention and perfected the incandescent light bulb. Make motivation as your steering wheel.

E – Enjoy. Work as if you don’t need money. Dance as if nobody’s watching. Love as if you never cried. Learn as if you’ll live forever. Motivation takes place when people are happy.

F – Family and Friends are life’s greatest  treasures. Don’t loose sight of them.

G – Give more than what is enough. Where does motivation and self improvement take place at work? At home? At school? When you exert extra effort in doing things.

H – Hang on to your dreams. They may dangle in there for a moment, but these little stars will be your driving force.

HangInThere

I – Ignore those who try to destroy you. Don’t let other people to get the best of you. Stay out of toxic people the kind of friends who hates to hear about your success.

J – Just be yourself. The key to success is to be yourself. And the key to failure is to try to please everyone.

K – keep trying no matter how hard life may seem. When a person is motivated, eventually he sees a harsh life finally clearing out, paving the way to self improvement.

L – Learn to love your self. Now isn’t that easy?

M – Make things happen. Motivation is when your dreams are put into work clothes.

N – Never lie, cheat or steal. Always play a fair game.

O – Open your eyes. People should learn the horse attitude and horse sense. They see things in 2 ways how they want things to be, and how they should be.

P – Practice makes perfect. Practice is about motivation. It lets us learn repertoire and ways on how can we recover from our mistakes.

Q – Quitters never win. And winners never quit. So, choose your fate are you going to be a quitter? Or a winner? Motivation is also about preparation. We must hear the little voice within us telling us to get started before others will get on their feet and try to push us around. Remember, it wasn’t raining when Noah build the ark.

S – Stop procrastinating.

T – Take control of your life. Discipline or self control jives synonymously with motivation. Both are key factors in self improvement.

U – Understand others. If you know very well how to talk, you should also learn how to listen. Yearn to understand first, and to be understood the second.

V – Visualize it. Motivation without vision is like a boat on a dry land.

W – Want it more than anything. Dreaming means believing. And to believe is something that is rooted out from the roots of motivation and self improvement.

X – X Factor is what will make you different from the others. When you are motivated, you tend to put on ‘extras’ on your life like extra time for family, extra help at work, extra care for friends, and so on.

Y – You are unique. No one in this world looks, acts, or talks like you. Value your life and existence, because you’re just going to spend it once.

Z –  Zero in on your dreams and go for it!!!

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!

“11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed” By Gary Vurnum PART-2

May 13, 2009

REASON # 2 – You can never imagine yourself as a success.

Successful people always have a vision of where they want to
be in the future.

Can you imagine yourself living the life of luxury in Monte
Carlo or on a yacht in the Caribbean?

Didn’t think you could.

Most people (apart from the successful ones) have a vision
of under-achievement. They never believe that they could
possibly be millionaires, or live a life like a famous role
model.

I call this “Oh Well” thinking. You always hear yourself say
“Oh Well…it will never happen for me” or “Oh Well…she’s
luckier than me anyway”.

Think like a winner…and you will become a winner.

Look at the example of one of the greatest boxers of all
time – Muhammad Ali. You probably remember his catchphrase.
The thing was…he even said it when he was starting out and
was plain old Cassius Clay…

“I Am The Greatest”
