Get out of your way

Harry S. Truman (1884-1972)

What’s stopping you from being the success you know you can achieve?

Got a mirror?

We’re all afraid of making mistakes. The fear of being wrong shouldn’t stop us from doing what is right.

When I was a freshman in high school, I took an advanced English course. We were covering types of speeches. Speeches to inform, to instruct, to entertain and to persuade. I was assigned the task of making a persuasive speech.

After introducing the topic, I began to tell my audience I was not for nor against the topic. Way to go Einstein.

Needless to say, I got an “F” on the assignment. And now I make a living persuading people to buy their products from me.

Good thing I didn’t let that failure get in the way of my future.

“In reading the lives of great men, I found that the first victory they won was over themselves… self-discipline with all of them came first.”
Harry S. Truman, 33rd President of the United States (1945-1953)
