Chasing Your Dreams!
Friends, it is always a power of your dreams and a motive to move ahead, which is required to move ahead and to be successful in life. Does it sound, impractical; let me share with you, something practical and real.
Some real time facts:
1.Out of the first four stores F. W. Woolworth opened, three failed. When he died, he was worth more than $20 million.
2.Einstein was 4 years old before he could speak.
3.Isaac Newton did poorly in grade school and was considered "unpromising".
4.Beethoven's music teacher once said of him, "As a composer, he is hopeless".
5.Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.
6.Walt Disney was fired from a newspaper because he "lacked imagination, and had no good ideas".
7.Thomas Edison's teacher told him he was too stupid to learn anything. Later, he tried 1,600 different materials before settling on carbon as the filament for the electric light bulb.
1) Victory Against Cancer
In October of 1996, Lance Armstrong, America's greatest cyclist, received the news. He was hero both in USA and in other Countries. He was called the "Golden Boy of American Cycling", and felt like nothing could stop him.
Something did. He was unable to finish a race in 1996 due to excruciating pain. He was rushed to hospital to find the cause.
THE NEWS~That month Lance underwent several tests, and the diagnosis was testicular cancer. The cancer had spread to his lungs and his brain. After undergoing three immediate surgeries, his chances for recovery were 50/50. The man, who had everything, was now hoping to have one thing, LIFE.
With the support of his family and friends, and his unstoppable attitude, Armstrong started to improve. The chemotherapy started to work and he started to once again think about racing. Some thought he was crazy. He was battling cancer, how could he think about ever racing again.
He did more than just thinking about it. He did it. Armstrong began training only five months after his diagnosis. He did not feel cursed, but lucky. He was given a new viewpoint on life. Armstrong realized how lucky of a man he really was.
Now that he beat cancer, Lance Armstrong took on the next biggest challenge, the Tour de Frances. Not only did he race well, he won.
Some were unsure if could survive cancer. He did. Some were unsure if he could train again. He did. Few thought he could win again. He did.
2) The Dream Behind Wendy's
As a young boy, Dave Thomas didn't have the easiest childhood. He was an adopted child, and was never able to meet his birth parents. The relationship he had with his adoptive father was difficult to say the least. This didn't stop the young Dave Thomas from dreaming. At the age of eight, he dreamed that one-day he would own the best restaurant in the world. Despite his surroundings, Dave Thomas had a dream, and knew it would be realized, someday.
Through hard work and persistence, this young boy learned much about the restaurant business by working in them at a very young age. He was passionate about his goal, and worked diligently to assure its attainment. As opportunities presented themselves, Mr. Thomas jumped. He was able to start his own restaurant and take a giant step closer to his dream and that was the foundation of Wendy's chain of Restaurants. This did not, how ever, come to him on a silver platter.
Dave Thomas invested everything he had into the first Wendy's restaurant, not knowing whether or not it would be successful. He could have lost it all, but that didn't stop him.
A DREAM REALIZED
Today, Wendy's is a $3.5 billion dollar company, and Dave Thomas is a man who had a dream, and did everything possible to make it come true. A boy with a dream is a powerful thing. Add to this equation persistence and passion, and you have an unstoppable force.
3) They Said It Couldn't Be Done
They said it couldn't be done. Many scientists also agreed that it was physically impossible. No one could ever run the mile in less than four minutes. No one ever has, they said, and no one ever will. Roger Bannister must have been absent that day in class, because on May 6, 1954, he ran the mile in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds.
This feat ended the world's nine-year quest for the four-minute mile. After Bannister's sub four-minute mile, other's also added their names to the list.
Once someone proved they could accomplish the impossible, other's found they could also. Could this be happening today? Many people today can tell you this or that will never be done. They may even tell that your dream is impossible.
Roger Bannister proved them all wrong, and so can you.
4) Successful people do it in spite of, and not in absence of, problems.
Wilma Rudolph was born into a poor home in Tennessee. At age four, she had double pneumonia with scarlet fever, a deadly combination, which left her paralyzed with polio. She had to wear a brace and the doctor said she would never put her foot on the earth.
But her mother encouraged her; she told Wilma that with God-given ability, persistence and faith she could do anything she wanted. Wilma said, " I want to be the fastest women on the track on this earth." At the age of nine, against the advice of doctors, she removed the brace and took the first step the doctors had said she never would. At the age of 13, she entered her first race and came way, way last. And then she entered her second, and third and fourth and came way, way last until a day came when she came in first.
At the age of 15 she went to Tennessee State University where she met coach by name Ed Temple. She told him," I want to be the fastest women on the track on this earth." Temple said, " with your spirit nobody can stop you and besides, I will help you."
REALIZATION OF DREAM
The day came when she was at the Olympics and at the Olympics you are matched with the best of the best. Wilma was matched against a woman named Jutta Heine who had never been beaten.
The first event was the 100 - meter race. Wilma beat Jutta Heine and won her first gold medal.
The second event was the 200-meter race and Wilma beat Jutta a second time and won her second gold medal.
ALWAYS KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE GOAL
The third event was the 400-meter relay and she was racing against Jutta one more time. In the relay, the fastest person always runs the last lap and they both anchored their teams. The first three people ran and changed the baton easily. When it came to Wilma's turn, she dropped the baton. But Wilma saw Jutta shoot up at the other end; she picked the baton, ran like a machine, beat Jutta a third time and won her third gold medal. It became history: that paralytic women become the fastest women on the earth at the 1960 Rome Olympics.
This story teaches us that successful people do it in spite of, not in absence of, problems.
At the beginning, everything appears to be impossible, but those who are dare enough and bold enough to take that first step, they have done well in their career as well as in life. It is very easy to put blame on external factors. I can only say, life your life, as if it is your last day and work or do things, in a manner as if the whole world is watching you.
I will be looking forward to your comments and feedback.
Have a great time and a fantastic week ahead and yes, pleaseee, pleaseees do take care of your good self.

Motivation: 5 Powerful Emotions You Can Use
Experiencing strong emotions is not uncommon. What is uncommon is applying these emotions to motivate you to change and grow.
Ignite Your Life!
Where have you come from this past year? What have you accomplished? Don'tlike the answers? Wish you had better ones, more fulfilling ones? You can -just one year from now!You have within yourself the power to decide that when someone asks you justone year from now, "What did you accomplish in the last year?" you willrespond, "Let me tell you - I was on fire!"You aren't getting any younger, and neither am I. If nothing changes, nextyear you will be one year older and still stuck in the rut wondering whenyou will achieve your dreams.
Motivation; 5 Steps to Get the Changes You Want
Q: I just read your column in today's' Greensboro News and Record. For the last few years I've been struggling with change, and found your suggestions about "change tools" to be useful.
Constructive Tips About Retrenchment
This article provides constructive tips about facing retrenchment and moving on with new career opportunities.1) Don't take it personally.
I received an email today that said I could: "Make 500-10k from your living room," which I find to be an amazing claim, seeing as how I'm here, in my living room, making whatever hourly rate it is I charge for whatever it is I'm doing at this moment, and yet the living room itself is of no help in this regard. I could be making money in another room altogether.
The natural cycle of life is to grow and move forward but moving forward brings with it an element of the unknown. It is human nature to fear the unknown.
Procrastinator No More!
Procrastination is when ever we postpone a task or duty intentionally without a valuable explanation. It is a natural tendency in people.
Turn your Dreaming into Doing
The first of January and September, as well as our birthdays seem to be the times in a year when we focus on the gulf between where we are and where we would like to be. By now, many of you have already given up your New Years Resolutions and settled back into the comfortable routine of last year.
Wake Up to the Life You Love
While speaking at a San Diego university recently, I was fortunate that I was not asked to leave the stage. You see, I chose to share with the students in my audience some frightening statistics.
Make Motivation Stick
Motivation is the elusive elixir. Not only does it help people do good work, and do it faster, but it also helps them feel good about it while they're doing it.
Getting Out of the Zone!
We've probably all heard the famous movie quip, "why don't you wait here while I slip into something a little more comfortable". It's a comment to make most of our ears (particularly male ones!) stand up on end with the anticipation that the film has actually taken a turn for the better.
A Burning Desire
"Mommy, he's doing it again." I yelled as I came running into the kitchen where I knew I would find Mother.
Finding the Easy Way
For the last hour I have been sweating over what I will write about in "Roy Bits." I have been laying in bed trying to conjure up something in my head.
Who Is Stuart Goldsmith?
'Stuart Goldsmith? Who is Stuart Goldsmith?' you may be asking.I met Stuart at his retirement seminar in London at the end of 2002.
What Does Your Future Hold? Do You Have A Plan? Or Are You Just Waiting To See What Happens?
We often find ourselves in a situation in which we either accept the change that someone else imposes upon us or in which we ourselves effect the change we would like to see happen. We sometimes stammer and hesitate and procrastinate with regard to decision making.
