Adam and Eve Loved Apple

an apple for Bigg SuccessAt one time, Adam and Eve wandered through the garden GOD had created for them. They used their own personal computers to understand the world around them.

Then one day, Eve tried an Apple. She loved it so much that she shared it with Adam.

Adam had always been a PC guy. But once he partook of this Apple, he was hooked too.

GOD saw what happened to Adam and Eve. HE told them about a wise man named Jobs.

HE said that Jobs had reached the heights of BIGG success, thanks to this Apple. But the Devil knew that Jobs was one of GOD’s favorites.

So he asked GOD to test Jobs. Jobs was forced to leave Apple behind. However, despite all the trials he faced, he stayed true to himself.

Eventually, the Devil gave up. Jobs got his Apple back.

Cain and Abel

In the meantime, Adam and Eve had two sons: Cain and Abel. Eve loved both of her sons.

She put their faces in a book. She called it Facebook.

Like many siblings, there was rivalry between the two boys. Cain would often poke Abel in Facebook.

GOD was displeased. HE punished Cain. HE deleted Cain’s place on Facebook.

Moses

As the years passed, GOD’s people multiplied. They came to be ruled Pharoah. Pharoah had no respect for this GOD.

GOD sent Moses to meet with Pharoah. Moses told Pharoah that GOD wanted HIS people to opt-out of Pharoah’s program. But Pharoah refused to allow it.

So GOD infected Pharoah’s computer with a virus. Once Pharoah saw this, he was very afraid. He let GOD’s people go.

GOD knew his people needed rules to live by. GOD wrote these rules on a Tablet.

David and Goliath

GOD’s people ran into a giant named Goliath. Goliath terrified them. No one was brave enough to take him on.

Then David came along. He volunteered to go head-to-head with Goliath.

The people told the king about David. The king was a battle-hardened veteran.

He didn’t think David stood a chance. So he tried to arm him with the conventional weapons and armor of a warrior.

David rejected it all. He knew he couldn’t beat the giant with traditional methods.

He focused on what he knew. He used tools that allowed him to remain light and nimble.

He faced up to the giant. Goliath laughed when he saw this little guy.

But David quickly brought the giant down. The people were thrilled. They announced that David would be their king.

Of course, they did so in less than 140 characters!

The Single Biggest Difference Between Winners and Losers

You need heart to achieve BIGG SuccessJoe Frazier passed away recently. In our opinion, and we’re not alone, he was one of the greatest boxers of all time.

But not because of his talent. Although, he was talented, it wasn’t the secret to his BIGG success.

Not because of his physical strength. Although, he was definitely strong.

He became the heavyweight champion of the world because of his heart.
And the fight inside him.

Muhammad Ali talked about this in his wonderful book, The Greatest. He shares what was going through his mind when we fought Frazier.

Frazier didn’t stop. He just kept coming.

Ali hit him. Hard. Again and again.

Frazier didn’t slow down. He stayed right there. As if nothing had happened.

Ali had a longer reach. Frazier didn’t care; he stayed close to Ali so reach didn’t matter.

Ali was arguably a better boxer. Frazier was a fighter. But he fought like no one else.

Ali kept slugging him. A right. A left. A jab. A hook.

He landed punch after punch. But Frazier stood strong.

Ali finally realized that this guy was not going down. Sure, he may fall.

In fact, Howard Cosell made one of his falls famous: “Down goes Frazier.”

But it wasn’t the falls that made him a BIGG winner.

Sure, he fell down. But he rose up.
He fell down. He rose again.

Joe Frazier would not let go down on the canvas. He would struggle to get up. He would fight to keep fighting to the finish.

Because he had the heart of a champion.
Because he had the fight inside of him to fight to the finish.

He didn’t know he would win. Nobody does.

He only that he wouldn’t quit. Nothing and nobody could ever take that away from him.

Joe Frazier demonstrated an essential component of BIGG success. As a fighter in a different ring once said:

“Half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
~ Steve Jobs

You will get knocked down. Everybody does.

The singe biggest difference between winners and losers is how many times they get up.

Because one time makes all the difference.
Winners get up one more time than losers.
Just one.

It is “the size of the fight in the dog” that really matters after all.

Do you have the fight to be a BIGG success?

Remembering Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs | BIGG SuccessYesterday, “life’s change agent” called Steve Jobs to a meeting.

That’s how he described death in his commencement address to Stanford graduates in 2005.

His point, in his own words:
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

We didn’t know Steve Jobs personally. Yet he personally affected us. Such is the nature of real entrepreneurs.

They impact the lives of hundreds, or thousands, or even millions of people. Not as an individual, but through their business.

Steve Jobs was the epitome of an entrepreneur. Not just in business, but in his attitude about life.

You see that in one of our favorite quotes by the man we’ll never forget:
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do….”

Here’s to you Steve Jobs! You will be missed!

The Power of Imagination

J.K. Rowling, best known as the author of the Harry Potter series, recently delivered an exceptional speech for the Commencement Ceremony at Harvard University.

It’s an amazing discussion of the power of failure and imagination. It’s definitely worth your time to read the full text, or watch the video. She said,

“We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we
need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better.”

Each of us has the power within us to change the world. Do you doubt it?

Steve Jobs didn’t doubt it.
He imagined a world where every person could have the same computing power that only large organizations had at that point. He dreamed of a world where computers were so user-friendly everybody could use them.

John F. Kennedy didn’t doubt it.
He had the vision that man could walk on the moon. He set forth his vision with the power of words to direct an entire country’s resources toward that mission. A short time later, Neil Armstrong uttered his famous words, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

Martin Luther King didn’t doubt it.

He had a dream that people would be judged solely by the contributions they made to society, not by the color of their skin. His dream led to a movement to bring equal opportunity to all.

You may say that you don’t have …

… the imagination of JK Rowling. To create a world that can inspire millions of young people to read again at a time when everyone thought that only video games could attract them.

 … the creativity of Steve Jobs. To see the possibilities for individuals to have access to technology at their fingertips.

… the vision of John F. Kennedy. To see the impossible as possible and to inspire an entire nation to get behind the effort.

… the oratory skills of Martin Luther King. To put the need for change front and center on the agenda of his country and to move people to effect that change.

The unique power within you.
You do have the power to imagine a better world and make a difference in your own life and the life of others. Your imagination flows from your unique genetic make-up and your personal experiences.

No one else – who has ever walked on this earth, is here now, or ever will be – can duplicate what you have and who you are. You are one of a kind!

It’s up to you to live up to the potential that is within you … just imagine! How will you leave the world a better place? What are you doing now to make a difference in the lives of others?
