On the shoulders of giants

What can we learn from history? What does it mean when people say that they are standing on the shoulders of giants? When faced with difficulty, why not have a look at some of the great people who came before us?

Let these stories inspire you :

  • A man who went broke multiple times, found rejection from newspapers and editors. Who was even told that he had no talent. The same man who became one of the biggest creators of all time. – Walt Disney

  • One man who went down in history as one of the greatest once said : – Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. His take on failure was : – I have not failed I’ve just found 10,000 ways that wont work.- Thomas Edison

  • This man who failed at business at the age of 21, lost the love of his life at 26 and suffered a severe mental breakdown at 27. Only to end up as one of the greatest president of all time. – Abraham Lincoln

Even the great once failed. The secret lies in perspiration. If you see obstacles it means that you’ve temporarily lost sight of your goal, focus. You are a creator of your own destiny. Failure can be looked upon as stepping stones to success. Mindset is everything. Step up on the shoulders of the giants of history.

Start creating your plan on how to reach your goals right now. Make it as detailed as possible. Don’t wait for the right time or inspiration. It will never come. Use your negatives as fuel to accomplish the impossible. When your plan is ready, act on it. Visualize yourself accomplishing your goals. Make your vision so real that it becomes the most beautiful movie that you’ve ever seen. Live it!

Patience, persistence and perspiration. Trust the process, enjoy the journey.

Turn every morning into a positive by creating your own ritual. Meditate, write, visualize and execute.

Walk through fire!
