If you think you can--you can. Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.

Rule of thumb: Winners do not focus on losing

Oct 4th 2014 at 11:27 AM

Would you walk a plank for money? Let's say the plank is on the ground and 20 feet long. If someone placed a ten dollar bill at one end, it would be a simple task to walk it, but what if the plank were atop and spanning two twenty story buildings? Most people would not walk such a plank even for a thousand dollar bill. The fear of falling can be paralysing.

The Great tight-rope-walker, Karl Wallenda was someone who would have walked the plank--even for no money at all! In case that name is unfamiliar, he was a high-wire walker who performed in circuses and atop tall buildings--without a safety net. When interviewed, Wallenda claimed that he never even thought about falling. He had learned to focus on the prize, the accomplishment, rather than the fear of falling.

So if we want to succeed in business and be a winner, we have to do what winners do: they focus on the desire of attainment and not on the fear of losing. This is the kind of mind control that is possible if we just work at it. Success rules say to do something every day toward building the business--focus on the goal and if you're persistent and consistent, the prize can be yours.
