2 Secrets to $ucceSS

Last Update: September 24, 2018

When starting anything that is new, different, and has challenges there will always "family and friends" that want to help by saying things like: "that will never work", "You can't do that", etc.

I've been told that many times. I never argued with them(my mother was one- and I Loved her" I just did it anyway.

Now I live by a few simple words and a joke:

"Never, Never, Never Give Up" Winston Churchill and

There was a farmer that had a mule. She died giving birth. The farmer got on his horse and rode into town to get the veterinarian. The veterinarian gave him a large milk bottle and said: milk a cow and feed the milk to the baby mule. It worked and the mule grew up and followed the farmer like a puppy. Years later the farming was digging a well and got it down to 20 feet. The next morning he was going to complete it and when he went outside his pet mule wasn't there to greet him as usual. After searching the farm he finally found that his pet had fallen into the well and was not hurt. Having no way of getting him out the farmer knew his pet die. He decided not to shoot him because it would cause too much pain. The farmer noticed a pile of cow manure and decided just to quickly bury him. As he shoveled, the manure in it landed on the mule's back and he shook it off. The farmer kept shoveling for 4 hours without looking at the well. When he finally, turned to look he noticed the well was filled AND his pet was standing on top still shaking the SH-- off.

The moral of this is: people, friends, and relatives are going to throw 'manure' on you in this adventure. Just SHAKE IT OF AND RISE TO THE TOP.

Good Luck and God Bless,

Hi Leo, I love the moral of the story, thanks I didn't see it coming, but it was a laugh. Your right though, family and friends don't get it, they think they are helping but... Maybe if the knew the words of Winston Churchill. As for my family and friends I don't bother sharing.

Did a lot of 'shaking' the past month and moved up 22,00+ in ranking.
This Family and our Patriarchs have been very supportive.
Best Wishes,
