Today is 30th Dec. 2 more days and it's 2009. What is your New Year Resolution? Today I went to the library again. I'm done with Failing Forward and I loaned another book from John Maxwell, Your Road Map For Success.

Before I returned the previous book back to the library, I want to share some motivation from the book.
.
There are three things extremely hard:steel, diamond, and to know one's self.
Ben Franklin
.
Not realising what you want is a problem of knowledge.
Not pursuing what you want is a problem of motivation.
Not achieving what you want is a problem of persistence.
.
.
While one person hesitates because he feels inferior,
the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.
Henry C. Link

The essence or the best is always at the last. These true stories are especially for those who faced many failures in life, just when you think that you're a complete failure as all the others brand you with, read the following before branding yourself a complete failure.
.
John Creasey received 743 rejections slips from publishers before one word was ever published - he eventually published 560 books, which sold more than 60 million copies.
.
Eddy Arcaro lost 250 consecutive races before he won his first.
.
Albert Einstein, Edgar Allan Poe, and John Shelley were all expelled from school for being mentally slow.
.
.
.
So where do you stand if NOW you compare yourself with them?
.
.
1. Realize there is one major difference between average people and achieving people.
2. Learn a new definition of failure.
3 .Remove the "you" from failure.
4. Take action and reduce your fear.
5. Change your response to failure by accepting responsibility.
6. Don't let the failure from outside get inside you.
7. Say goodbye to yesterday.
8. Change yourself, and your world changes.
9. Get over yourself and start giving yourself.
10. Find the benefit in every bad experience.
11. If at first you do succeed, try something harder.
12. Learn from a bad experience and make it a good experience.
13. Work on the weakness that weakens you.
14. Understand there's not much difference between failure and success.
15. Get up, get over it, get going.
