How often do we use the words – fail, end and no? How often do we hear those words from others or do we use those words on others or are they used on us? From the standpoint of motivation, these can be tough words; however they don’t have to be.
What follows is a great way to look at those words from a more positive angle from scientist and the 11th President of India, A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. Read below the photo for my take on the word, “NO.”
If you fail, never give up because F.A.I.L. means First Attempt In Learning.
End is not the end, in fact E.N.D. means Effort Never Dies.
If you get “No” as an answer, remember N.O. means Next Opportunity”
I love all of these, but especially the last, “N.O. means Next Opportunity.” As people who want more out of life than what is given us or forced down our throats, we hear “No” a lot. And let me tell you, as you get more successful, you will hear it even more.
Don’t let others stop you. Don’t let other’s fear of doing and becoming stop you. The small people – the people who have to make rules to control others – won’t get you, they won’t understand you or your goal. (That is not bad; it’s just beyond them.) It’s like a giraffe trying to describe the fruit found at the top of a tree to a turtle… the turtle will never get it.
And because they don’t “get it,” they will try and stop you. Just ignore them as best you can and keep going. Look for that next opportunity!
Remember when it comes to motivation, the best motivational speaker you will ever hear… is you!
