In Others’ Words: Achieving Success
“No one lives long enough to learn everything they need to learn starting from scratch. To be successful, we absolutely, positively have to find people who have already paid the price to learn the things that we need to learn to achieve our goals.” ~Brian Tracy (1944-), self-help author
It’s one thing to have a dream.
It’s something all together different when someone else comes along and embraces your dream with you.
When another person peers into your heart — your wish-upon-a-star-hopes — and says, “I believe in you!” — ah, that’s when dreams suddenly start looking like reality.
And when someone pours their heart into your passion … suddenly the goal seems achievable, doesn’t it?
Such is the power of a mentor — that so-wise person who has the experience, the know-how that you need to climb the proverbial ladder to success.
I’m starting this week off with a prayer that each of you would find that person — or persons — who already knows what you need to move closer to your dreams. I pray that each of you would find mentors who believe in you — and who come alongside you and say, “You can do this. Let me share something that helped me. “
In Your Words: Who has helped you achieve your dreams? And when have you had the chance to help someone else reach their dreams (because you’ve already paid the price to learn what they need to know?)0 I like this!
