If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door!

“At first people refuse to believe that a strange new thing can be done.
 
Then they begin to hope it can be done.
 
Then they see it can be done.
 
Then it is done………. and all the world wonders why it was not done centuries ago.” 
 
 
 
 
The people who are the most successful in life are the ones who create their own opportunities.
 
But all too often, people don’t want to give the extra effort or go the additional mile to realize their true potential!
 
 
What most people fail to understand is;
 
The bravest person is still scared; they are just braver one second longer than anyone else!
 
The calmest person is still worried; they are just calmer one second longer than anyone else!
 
The most disciplined person is still undisciplined; they are just disciplined one second longer than anyone else!
 
The most persistent person is still non-persistent; they are just persistent one second longer than anyone else!
 
 
As you can see……success isn’t given to anyone.
 
Success doesn’t come delivered in a pretty box with a big bow attached to it!
 
Success comes to those that have the intestinal fortitude to go beyond what most people think is “normal”.
 
Success comes to those that are willing to leave their “comfort zones” and reach out to do more!
 
Successful people don’t necessarily enjoy or like the things they have to do to be successful, but they understand that they HAVE to do them to be successful!
 
You have to have the courage to take the step forward and leave behind the forces that may pull you down!
 
You have to understand that success just might be……one more second away!
 
Make yourself have the guts, the heart, the spirit, the spunk, the backbone, the grit, the fortitude, the determination, the persistence and boldness to go forward!
