Henry Ford said once “Whether you believe you can or believe you can’t… you are right!”

Well,  he didn’t say it just like that. He wouldn’t say something he didn’t mean ! People who believe they can, they really do achieve their goals and dreams. So do the people who believe they can’t and the successfully accomplish nothing!

Many people claim to be happy and satisfied with their rut jobs. But they don’t realize who they compare themselves with… usually with those who are broke and busted financially. Most professionals are either time broke or money broke in today’s world.

Most people don’t even realize what they are training their own future generation. The moment a thought about future of their own children comes in mind, they know deep inside what is wrong… but they choose to ignore in most cases because of the same “Fear of Failure” and most people do not want to get out of their comfort zone and take action to do something about it. What a tragedy!

Now the question comes, is an average life okay ? What’s wrong with being average ?

Well, nothing wrong in being average… but average people don’t live the kind of life they want.. And nor they can make much of a different to this world.

I read in a book that said “Somewhere near you is the greatest source of natural resources the world has ever known. It doesn’t matter where you live, this place is just few minutes from you – your local cemetery. It holds ideas that will never be shared, inventions that will never improve the quality of life, art that will never be viewed, music that will never be heard. It holds the future generations that will never be born”
Cemeteries are filled mostly with people who just wanted to fit in. They went with the flow, and faded into obscurity without contributing much. You can almost hear them saying “What difference could I have made? I’m only one person.”

Now I am thinking, how many of us lead lives of desperation… how many of us purposefully agree and plan to fail in life just because we don’t ever have a dream to succeed??

Is there any way out?

Absolutely there is ! If anybody is willing to learn, is willing to make changes, is willing to put efforts for it, success if absolutely inevitable. People who decide to succeed are ordinary people with extraordinary dreams and a willingness to work hard to achieve their dreams. Success is no more a secret, these success principles are well documented, but unfortunately average people choose not to follow these!
