Who could have imagined that Michael Phelps would have reached the heights he has in the Olympics thus far? Obviously, not me – I’m not sports buff by a mile. But this man’s drive and talent has made the whole world take notice. But, at want point did this go from a wish to a goal to a reality for him?
Further, at what point can the spirit of the Olympics carry over into the way everyday entrepreneurs, like you and I, live our lives? What does it take for someone to bring out their internal success champion for the world to see?
It’s not nearly as hokey as it sounds – it’s as real as everything else preached in “The Secret,” which brings me back to the quote at the title of this post.
Jack Canfield’s ,famous for “The Secret” as well as “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” shared the message that “If someone hasn’t laughed at your goals, they are NOT BIG ENOUGH … “ during a conference last week, as blogged by multimillionaire entrepreneur Brad Sugars.
That got me thinking about all the things times we, as entrepreneurs (or even future entrepreneurs) get laughed at for our ambitions. Rather than a source of frustration, perhaps discouragement can be a source of motivation to get educated to make the dreams into successful realities.
Otherwise, how else am I going to retire at 30?
Be x Do = Have: The Formula For Success is a series of YouTube videos I wanted to share that address this concept perfectly. Take Phelps – he had to BE, on an internal level, the Olympic champion the world now sees before he could DO what it would take to HAVE what he wanted.
Are there any entrepreneurs applying these principles to get what they want? Are there any solo-starters overcoming laughter, right now?
Let me know …
