Wherever you are now, it is not an accident that you have come across unexpectedly to my blog because I’m about to tell you a really good story.
This is not a story about online marketing, networking, search engine optimization, facebook, google, mlm business, struggling leads generation, struggling to sponsor people to join your primary business, chasing your family and friends, and any other complicated stuff that you didn’t make any money or putting cash flow to your online business, then stop and forget about it. You need to read this story.
To give credit where credit is due, these stories are from a book called “The Power of a Positive Attitude” by John Mason. Might be a book you want to invest in at some point…
There were two men shipwrecked on an island. The minute they got onto the island one of them started screaming and yelling, “We’re going to die! We’re going to die! There’s no food! No water! We’re going to die!
The second propped up against a palm tree and acting so calmly it drove the first man crazy. “Don’t you understand?!? We’re going to die!!” The second man replied, “You don’t understand; I make $100,000 a week.”
The first man, dumbfounded, looked at him and asked, “What difference does that make? We’re on an island with no food and no water – we’re going to DIE!!!
The second man answered, “I make $100,000 a week, and I tithe ten percent. My pastor will find me”.
When you are persistent, you know it, and so does everyone else. Never give up on what you really know you should do. Failure is waiting on the path of least persistence. The “man of the hour” spent many days and nights getting there: “My overnight success was the longest night of my life” (Unknown). Winners simply do what losers don’t want to do… longer.
The famous old saying is true:
In the confrontation between the stream and the rock, the stream always wins – not through strength but through perseverance.
Christopher Morley said, “Big shots are only little shots that keep shooting.”
Success in life is not an accident – and it’s not just dumb luck either. If you are ready to achieve positive results in your life, then Believe You Can! – John Mason
Now, let’s get back to my question above. You only live once?
My answer is NO. Because you live daily and you only die once.
