Seek & Ye Shall Find. - But only if you want it reeeeeeeally badly
by Linda Larsen
I am going to make the following bold assertion: If there is anything in this lifetime that you want, you absolutely positively can get it. IF you want it badly enough.
Now, of course, I am talking about things that are somewhat realistic. You just might not become the Pope, no matter how much you would like to. And maybe, if you are 96 years old, you won't master the 4-minute mile. But for most of us, it is totally possible for us to achieve exactly what we want.
Walt Disney asked hundreds of people for the money to finance Disney Land before one of them said yes. He found the help he needed because he wanted it reeeeeally badly.
Lucille Ball was told by teachers in acting school that she had no talent and should give up the business. She ignored their advice and kept at it becauseshe wanted it reeeeeeally badly.
Jackie Nink Pflug was a passenger on the Egypt Air Flight that was hijacked enroute from Athens to Cairo in 1985. She was shot in the head, thrown onto the tarmac and lay there for 5 hours, presumed dead. Later rescued, it was determined that her severe head injury had left her with epilepsy, limited vision, learning and speech disabilities. Doctors told her she would never read beyond a third-grade level, drive a car or teach again. She went on to become one of the most sought after, inspirational, powerful, professional speakers I have ever seen. And she did so because she wanted it reeeeeeally badly.
I was told, after the break up of my 15-year relationship (at age 46), that I would never be able to financially take care of myself and wouldn't even be able to pay the real estate taxes on my house. I went on (in six short years) to publish a book, a best selling audio program, over 75 articles in national publications, receive numerous awards, become a professional keynote speaker AND pay the real estate taxes on my house because... I wanted it really, really, really badly.
If you have a strong enough WHY you truly can
I assure you, no one will be able to stop you when you begin to take action. You will be so motivated by what you have seen and experienced and you will want it really, really, really badly.
You WILL achieve your goal.
