Good morning Guys, it’s a new day and the beginning of a new working month, last month is gone with all that we expected to achieve done and some not achieved. We have our tagets for the year and some people do not look at it now, but the best is coming, I wrote this post sometime ago and I feel this is a good time to re-emphasize on the issue that you are the only person that can stop you, its only you that has the power to terminate your progress, you can only stop when you decide. I love to read about Richard Branson as I am currently reading “How I lost my Virginity” he has a good way of making things look easy, he never says never, he has successfully tackled the big names in some industries and most time won, he has seen his fair share of failures and a large chunk of success. One thing I admire most is his “do it all” attitude. Trying out new things, tapping from the market no one saw.
The Virgin brand is an example of a most successful brand, stretching the brand never kills it but rather increases its equity. He has thrived on different terrains and every failure to him is a big lesson to greatness.
One day, the employees of a company got to the office and saw a big advice on the door on which it was written: “Yesterday the person who has been hindering the growth of this corporation passed away. We invite you to join the funeral in the room that has been prepared in the gym”.
In the beginning, they all got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they all started getting curious to know who was that fellow who hindered the growth of the company. The excitement in the gym was such that security agents were called in for crowd control. The more people filed towards the coffin, the more the excitement heated up. Everyone thought: Who is this guy who was hindering the progress? Well, at least he died! One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside it, they suddenly became speechless. They stood in turn by the coffin, shocked in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin and everyone who looked inside, could only see themselves. There was also a sign next to the mirror: “The only one person who is capable to set ‘limits’ to your growth anyway: is YOU INC.
Life is usually what we make of it. As a man thinks in his heart so is he. The heart of the matters of life is a matter of the heart. If we dwell on the negatives in our hearts, it will surely inform our outputs without fail. Your life won’t change when your boss, colleagues, friends, parents, partner, spouse or when your company changes as regards their policies. Your life only changes when YOU change. So rise above your limiting belief system and watch yourself soar like an eagle. Don’t be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses wherever you find them: Be the winner, build yourself up to resolve challenges. The reality check here is simply, the way you approach the issues of your life makes the difference! Make most of your opportunities to work on YOU INC.
