- "Entrepreneurs average 3.8 failures before final success. What sets the successful ones apart is their amazing persistence." Lisa M. Amos
Did you know February was International Expect Success Month.... But let's think about this..... Success....well what exactly is success?
Many think it's a destination and that it will be the end of the journey BUT success IS the journey! All of it!!
See you can't have success without failures and you can't FIND success if you give up after you fail! You MUST rise above all problems, issues, adversity to see that there is much much more to achieve.
Personally I find it very interesting that I would learn that this month is international expect success month and I am going to have the most successful year of my life! (Yes I claim it). And it's my birth month AND Black History Month.
It's funny how if you pay attention to the signs everything is there and we can see what our path is but we have to climb over obstacles and crawl under bridges and fight thru the bad weather and cracks in the road.
It seems that success is the beautiful reward at the top of the mountain.... This golden palace of happiness. BUT we are in the dark valley fighting off all of the snakes and demons and when we reach that mountain top we need to expect that it is NOT the final destination BUT that the road will continue EXCEPT now it will be on higher ground! In a happier place! Success is a journey but it only has to be tough at the beginning! Once you break free and see what is holding you back you can rise so high above it and take that high road, away from the snakes and the demons and fly high with the angels and the birds!
When you think of Birds you think of freedom! Flying high with this beautiful gift to soar and sing beautiful music each day that's success! Or do you want to be the snake.... Curse to slither on the ground unable to freely soar or sing.... Only hiss and be confined to the ground because they not only don't have wings but they don't have legs!
Fortunately we are not cursed and our legs can be wings! Will you be a bird or Snake? See I would rather be a bird. Even a caged bird can still sing and is still able to fly, you hurt have to get out of your cage (comfort zone). It's hard BUT there is a way if you are determined enough!!
