If you Fail, never give up
Because F.A.I.L. means
“First attempt in learning”
End is not the end, In fact,
E.N.D. means “Effort never Dies”
If you get No as an answer,
Remember N.O. means
Next Opportunity, so let’s
“When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound. Rebuild those plans and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.” – Napoleon Hill (1883 – 1970) American Motivational Speaker
If I had to have the right time, the right feeling, the right mojo to do things, nothing would get done in my life. Every day I see a FAIL sign ahead and I take always take the ‘Next Opportunity’ route to my destination. Life is just not going to go easy for any of us, so we must adjust and put a little song in our hearts and keep going, knowing that our efforts are going to pay off.
“The reward of a thing well done is to have done it.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882) American Poet and Essayist
Have you a dream that you want to fulfill? Do you have a quest, a mission, a calling, a vision of what you want to do in life? Well, it will not be easy to attain, but it will be fulfilling. And if this truly is your dream, you’ll love every step of the journey, including the bad and the good.
How to you make a FAIL a SUCCESS? First, you must engage others in your vision. You have to make them feel that you are sure of your goal, and that you have enough passion to get you to the end!
People will forget what you say, They forget what you do, But they never forget how you made them feel! – Maya Angelou
Make people feel good around you and make them feel as if they are in a “happy zone” when they are around you! Have your wits about you and always remember how to treat others.
“Class is an aura of confidence that is being sure without being cocky. Class has nothing to do with money. Class never runs scared. It is self-discipline and self-knowledge. It’s the sure footedness that comes with having proved you can meet life.” – Ann Landers, born 1918
As for having class, I have learned a secret. The other day I offended someone so badly that they called me and just let me have it over the phone. They were offended by something that I do with a good heart daily and have done a million times, but that was not what they wanted and they were hot at me. Guess what I said after my reprimand, “I’m sorry”. I said it sincerely four times and they did hear me and then truly thanked me for my position and how I received the message. Was it class? I think it was just being nice to someone and just truly making someone else happy.
“Courage is the greatest of all the virtues. Because if you haven’t courage, you may not have an opportunity to use any of the others.” – Samuel Johnson (1709 – 1784) English Author
Doing the right thing truly will take courage in your life. It will mean saying “Sorry” many times, even when you have done nothing wrong. Yet you will come out the best in the end for truly taking the opportunity to be humble and contrite.
Think you can do these things? I believe you can. Read on about the little bumblebee and go make a Buzzzz in life!
“Aerodynamically a bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumblebee doesn’t know that so it goes on flying anyway.” – Mary Kay Ash (1915 – 2001) American Businesswoman, founder Mary Kay Cosmetics
