|Gerry Giraffe had just struck out again. Gerry's abnormal height was a distinct disadvantage playing baseball because of his extra high strike zone.|
Although Gerry really didn't care - he wasn't too passionate about baseball - he only played it because the other kids did. The problem was his team had now lost the city championship and they were all bummed out.
In the locker room after the game Coach Rhino Rhinoceros tried to comfort his players with the following words of wisdom.
"You lost today and I know you feel bad, but if you take the following words of wisdom and apply them to your life you will have more success in life then you ever dreamed of.
I was privileged to know a very famous wise man and right before he died he shared with me these life-changing revelations I will share with you now. Revelations so powerful they allowed him to accomplish anything he desired. They will also work for anybody who is willing to put forth these principals on a daily basis.
He said, "I have come to observe over the years that the guy who always got the girl, the promotion, the top position, etc. almost always had the following character trait. They had extreme confidence in themselves and what they were doing. They had an unshakeable power of belief. Jesus Himself Said "Everything is possible to him who believes."
Let me ask you the following question, "Is not true belief just another term for Passion?" When someone believes something strong enough they develop a true passion for making it happen. This is what separates just knowing something to be possible and having a real passion to make it a reality. For instance most sales people know the more people they talk to the greater their number of sales will be. But until they develop the passion to actually start talking to more people their sales will stay the same.
A golfer can actually know that practice will make his game better but until they become passionate about improving their game it won't improve.
The leading trainers of top athletes and business leaders all say the same thing.
The best predictor of success is the degree of passion the person has.
Knowing this is it not possible to build our level of passion - thus guaranteeing our success. You bet it is.
Knowing this was for me the first step in solving the problem of how to create anything I wanted in Life.
After all just knowing how to do something and actually being able to do it are two horses of a different color so to speak.
Next he revealed important secrets that seemed very simple and yet the majority of people live their whole lives and never discover these amazing revelations.
This involves solving this problem of "How do we create this unshakeable self-confidence, the kind of unwavering belief that moves mountains and allows a person to get the girl and create for themselves the kind of life that others only dream about.
A hate to ruin the story and give you the last page of the book here, but the way to achieving unwavering self-confidence and belief is simply creating a goal of something you have never done before and than accomplishing that goal. And then doing it again and again.
Now I'm not going to discuss how to set goals, but here is the secret of those who accomplish their goals and those who don't.
Upon defining that goal or goals, write down 20 things on paper that you believe are items or thoughts, or beliefs that are currently holding you back from accomplishing your goals.
Next focus on what you consider the top 1-3 limitations that are holding you back from achieving your goal.
Now here is what I find exciting. Normally a person will have a couple of major hang-ups (limitations) that are preventing them from accomplishing their major goals in life. So by eliminating these limitations you eliminate the vast percentage of all the road blocks for all of your goals.
The secret I used was to set goals to remove the major limitations from my life. Once I removed these limitations it was like being in a race with a bunch of one-legged men.
