How would we rate OUR determination at Wealthy Affiliate?

Last Update: May 07, 2018

So this is a question as we go forward in this new week. Ready?

How many NO's would you take until you get a YES?

We have all heard those stories of incredible success. But do we know the back story?

Edison failed at just about everything until he created the phone and light bulb (yeah I know Tesla did it first).

And Abraham Lincoln lost all his elections before he finally became president of this country.

And Steve Jobs took a few turns before Apple became what it is now.

Walt Disney was turned down with his drawings of Mickey Mouse, really?

Einstein was dyslexic and yet created theories that still boggle our minds.

Amelia Earhart was told that women absolutely could not fly. Yet she flew.

Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban and was told she would not speak again. She won the Nobel Peace Prize. Yeah. goose bumps. And she said

  • “One child, one teacher, one book, one pen can change the world.” ...

And the list goes on and on. People who never gave up. Because their vision was their drive and their life. Shiny object syndrome did not exist for them.

So here is my challenge to both myself and all of us.

What is holding us back today?

And how do we choose to let it go?

What do we need to know that failure is just a stepping stone to magnificent things that are coming into our world?

May this be the day that no holds are on us.

That we are living in our own committed life to all that is success, joy and growth and potential

May it be. And so it is.


in peace and gratitude,

in sales the general rule is 100 no's to get one yes. You do develop a thick skin.

So true, Ariel. That's why I hated cold calling for potential prospects.
