“You cannot climb the ladder of Success with Your Hands in your Pockets.”

This quote is from Arnold Schwartzenegger on www.youtube.com.

The title of the video is “6 Rules for Success.” And you should pay attention to what the man said.

You cannot climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets. This means to me that if you WANT something, you have to actually DO something towards achieving that goal.

I hear a lot of people asking, “How can I be rich like this person?” Or make a statement like, “That person started out rich, so I will never make it to where they are. “There is not enough time in the day.” There are all kinds of “obstacles” and “reasons” that can prevent an individual from achieving their goal. Most of these “obstacles” and “reasons” originate in the dreamer’s mind.

Why don’t you at least TRY to reach your goal? Every single person on this earth is different. We all have different situations to deal with. We all have unique goals and dreams. Everyone’s dream and path in life is unique to that person.

The mind is more powerful than we know. We have not discovered all the capabilities of the human mind. We are learning more and more each day. IF you believe in your heart that you want to do something, then you should listen to your own voice. IF a voice inside you tells you that you CAN do something, then you should prepare yourself for the journey. IF you are tired of listening to others telling you not to do something because “It has already been done”, or “It cannot be done,” or even because…..(you can fill in the blanks), then I say you should listen to someone else. Listen to someone positive. There are plenty of positive people out there.

But you have to make the first move. You cannot climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets.

I wish you the best of luck.

Pick a dream…and GO FOR IT!

John
