What will make you a winner?
“The difference between a winner and a loser is that a winner holds on a little longer.” These words belong to the great Adventurer and Motivational Guru, Mike Horn.
I was pondering over these words when suddenly I remembered a story I had read in the book called The Power of Positive Thinking by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale. The story goes this way: A man decided to dig a well as he had heard that oil would be found. He got all the machinery and hired people to do the work. Even after 6 month, no oil was found. The man got frustrated and decided to give up on the project. The person who had supplied the machinery to this man, decided that he would try for some time. Within two days after this new person started digging, oil was found. If the man who gave up, would have stuck on a little longer, he would have achieved what he wanted.
A winner perseveres. Every big invention, every big act has come out of perseverance. All great people have followed this principle of life that is “Never give up”. Remember that once you have started your journey, you have to reach your destination. Have the courage to face the odds, have the self belief you can do it and have the energy to perform. You are bound to win.
Being a Motivational Speaker in India, I have always emphasized the fact that give your hundred percent, don’t compromise, and sooner or later you will find your way to success. Remember every failure is going to make you stronger, so take failures as blessings and move on towards your goal. Make perseverance a habit.
