Those Who Achieve . . . . Overcome
“Show me someone who has done something worthwhile,
and I’ll show you someone who has overcome adversity.”
Lou Holtz, Author, Motivational Speaker, Former
As I see it . . . . . . .
Those who achieve . . . . Overcome
In a recent training program . . . . a student asked me.
She said “why do you talk about achievers having to overcome obstacles . . . . adversity . . . . setbacks . . . . and failure in order to succeed”?
Then she added “What about all the people who have succeed and didn’t have overcome those things and succeed”?
I said “before I answer your question . . . . let me ask you a question”. Do you think that the successful people you know or read about accomplished their success without having to overcome adversity in their life and on their success journey?
She relayed . . . . “Yes! that why their successful . . . they’re lucky”.
I asked her . . . . Do you consider yourself lucky? She said “NO that why I’m in your class”.
Responding to her and the class . . . . I shared my understanding of luck as it relates to business and life.
When preparation meets opportunity the person with a positive attitude creates the conditions for a successful outcome. Some people will call that luck others will call it an on purpose activity.
I want on to explain . . . .
The person that can manage their emotions . . . . places themselves into a position to manage the various conditions in their lives.
Obstacles and challenging conditions are part of your success journey. The reason you read about successful overcoming obstacles . . . . and bouncing back from setbacks and failure . . . . is because it’s part personal growth and in pursuing your goals.
Success is hard work . . . . Those who achieve . . . . Overcome the obstacle in their life and earn the right to stand in the winner’s circle.
