When You Feel Like Walking, You Need To Keep On Working

When You Feel Like Walking, You Need To Keep On Working

by Dr. Alan Zimmerman

The great violinist Paganini was performing before a most distinguished audience. Suddenly, all but one of the strings on his violin snapped. The audience gasped, but the master musician just raised his famous Stradivarius violin, and with outstanding skill, finished his performance on a single string. The audience gave him a tumultuous standing ovation.

In a similar sense, you will have times in your life and in your Tastefully Simple business when one string after another will snap. And you will go through circumstances that could disappoint and discourage you to the point of giving up. But you don’t have to give up – if you keep “passion” as your business partner.

Here’s what I suggest.

1.  Decide you’re going to be successful.

That’s right.  You simply decide you’re going to make it.  Period.  There’s no doubt about it. As Abraham Lincoln said, “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to success is more important than any other one thing.”

2.  Accept the fact there will be struggle.

And struggle is good. Struggle builds character. Ask any successful consultant at Tastefully Simple.  She’ll gladly tell you how much she has grown as a person in the process of building her business.

The truth is, successful people wouldn’t be the successes they are without all the struggle they had. Successful people simply accept the struggle as part of the process.

3.  Do what you have to do, even if you don’t feel like it.

Don’t put too much stock in your feelings.  That’s what losers do.  If they don’t feel like doing something, they don’t do it; even though they’ve got to do certain things if they’re going to be successful.

Winners, on the other hand, make themselves do what needs to be done. That’s how Muhammad Ali became great. He even said, “I hated every minute of the training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion’.”

To ensure your championship status, get a copy of my CD album, “Taking Charge:  6 Strategies for Achieving More Than Ever.”  You’ll get more good ideas and more motivation than you ever thought possible.  I’ll even give you a major discount and a lifetime, money-back guarantee.  Just go to this internet site to get your copy http://www.DrZimmerman.com

4.  Refuse to use a loser’s language.

Words always precede results. So if you talk like a loser, you’ll end up losing. George Schultz, the former U.S. Secretary of State said, “The minute you start talking about what you’re going to do if you lose, you have lost.”

Be like the little boy who walked onto the baseball field saying, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world.” He threw up the ball, swung, missed, and said, “Strike one.” He did that for three strikes in a row.

At that point he picked up his bat and ball. With a smile on his face, he walked off the field and said, “I’m the greatest pitcher in the world.” He refused to use the language of a loser. He only talked about winning, and so should you.
