How To Turn Defeat Into Victory
In The Magic of Thinking Big, people on skid row (in other word’s, have been defeated), have something in common:
each one is defeated, whipped, and beaten. Each of them have encountered situations that conquered him/her. Each is eager, even anxious, to tell you about the situation that wrecked him/her, or about his/her own private waterloo.
When we move up from skid row into the dominion of Mr. and Mrs. Average American, we see an obvious difference in living habits, but again we discovered that Mr. and Mrs. Mediocre gives the same excuses as people on skid row.
But Mr. and Mrs. Success react differently when they get knocked down by bouncing back up, learning a lesson, forgetting the beating, and move upward/forward.
Here are two suggestions for developing greater power to experiment, the ingredient, that, when blended with persistence, gets results.
- Tell yourself, “There IS a way.” All thoughts are magnetic.
- Back off and start afresh. Often we stay so close to a problem for so long that we can’t see new solutions or new approaches.
Remember, you see in any situation what you expect to see. See the good side and conquer defeat. All things do work together for good if you’ll just develop clear vision.
‘Til the next episode, peace!
