"I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." Bill Cosby
Not everyone is going to agree with your vision. Some may even oppose what you are aiming for. If their objections have merit, re-evaluate your vision to ensure that it is morally and ethically correct. If it is, stand your ground and pursue your vision or purpose with passion. The moment you begin to try to accommodate every person's wishes, you begin a process of compromise that will ultimately lead to your vision being eroded. Your drive to achieve it will diminish to the point where your vision no longer motivates you. This is because it is no longer your vision. Be absolutely focused on your vision. Don't allow anyone to steal your enthusiasm by forcing you to consider compromise in order to win his or her favour. Who are you trying to please and why?
"Your mind is like a computer. What you put in is what you get out." - Anonymous
What you think is who you are. A computer is an amazing tool. It can do calculations of great magnitude that may take mere mortals like you or I months to figure out - in a split second. Yet despite its great speed and complexity, it cannot do anything unless someone has first loaded the required software. Isn't that amazing? Although we understand this, people constantly try to do things without first programming their minds with the right inputs. They refuse to read books, listen to tapes or watch motivational videos. They seldom, if ever, attend personal development seminars. Yet they believe that they can change the world. You cannot change the world if you refuse to change yourself. Commit to a personal development programme. Stick to it and ensure that you are learning from it every day. How can you improve your Personal Development Programme?
