Did someone forget to tell Jimmy Durante that he couldn’t sing? It didn’t matter to him. He became a star, thanks in part to his gravelly voice which made him noticeable.
Did someone forget to tell Albert Einstein he wasn’t smart enough? After all, he struggled with language his whole life. He didn’t start talking until he was three. And he failed a language exam when he was sixteen. Yet he is one of the people often associated with the term “genius”.
Did someone forget to tell Helen Keller that blind people can’t become authors?
She certainly didn’t let that little challenge stop her.
And lest you think these people are just “one-off” examples, consider John Bramblitt. Did someone forget to tell him that blind people can’t paint? In fact, it was just that – going blind – which lit the path to his passion.
Did someone forget to tell Josh Hinds that a person with a stuttering problem caused by Tourette’s Syndrome couldn’t become a public speaker? It didn’t stop him. He became a pioneer of personal development online.
Did someone forget to tell Bethany Hamilton that surfers need two arms? While surfing at the age of 13, a 14-foot tiger shark bit off her left arm. Yet she still became (and still is) an award-winning professional surfer.
Did someone forget to tell J.K. Rowling that a divorced mother with no money couldn’t become a BIGG success? You know the rest of her story. She’s the first author to become a billionaire.
We’ll bet you that…
- someone DID tell each and every one of these people not to proceed
- someone reminded them of the reason why they shouldn’t do it
- someone told them they would fail if they tried
But they didn’t listen! If they had, we wouldn’t be talking about them.
So don’t let people stop you from pursuing your passion – the passion which will take you to BIGG success.
What do you really want to do?
