We’ve all heard the story about the man whose beloved donkey falls into a deep hole; he can’t pull it out no matter how hard he tries; so he decides to bury it alive. He pours soil down onto the donkey from above.
The donkey feels the load, shakes it off, and steps on it; more soil is poured. The donkey shakes it off and steps up. The more the load was poured, the higher it rose. By noon, the donkey was grazing in green pastures. After much shaking off (of problems) And stepping up (learning from them), one will graze in GREEN PASTURES.
We can respond to the challenges we face in life and our circumstances in only one of two ways: we can get bitter, or we can get better. We can whine and blame and cry that life is unfair and that we’re the victims of others, and this will simply enrage some people and bore others; it won’t alleviate or solve our problems. We will simply sink lower and perpetuate our problems. That is what the majority of people, unfortunately, do.
The wise alternative is to take aggressive action, to do something constructive about our dilemma. There is a lot of help available to those who decide to take responsibility for their lives. Those who are serious about turning their barriers and stumbling blocks into stepping stones understand that the only thing stopping them… is their own interpretation of their potential, abilities, and options.
I hear people whine about having too little money. They say they have tried many things to change the course of their lives, but always failed, always lost money, and now they won’t try anything new, because they are afraid of losing more money, and they feel they can’t go back to the same people they have approached with so many disastrous Network Marketing offers in the past. I understand that.
So I show them a way to change their financial lives and reach their goals with no cost or risk, and all the professional help they need, using a proven process. I can show them how they can do this without contacting a single person whom they approached in the past. Yet many still shake their heads forlornly and say, “It won’t work for me.”
REMEMBER THIS: Just because your situation seems hopeless to you, and simply because you don’t know of a way to solve your problem, doesn’t mean there is no solution and that you cannot get past this obstacle – or out this hole. Sometimes, we all feel like that donkey did when he was in that hole.
Those people have given up hope, written themselves off, as it were. They have decided that they are condemned to mediocrity, failure, and shortage. They have accepted a mentality of scarcity, instead of abundance. I can’t help them or change them, and anyway, I am too busy helping those who believe that “it’s never too late to change your life and make your dreams come true.”
If you’re serious about success, determined to win, and ready to work hard to reach your goals, we should talk.
