If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it! - Jonathan Winters -7-8-11

If your ship doesn't come in, swim out to it! - Jonathan Winters

Today's quote is ALL about the RELATIONSHIP between FEARLESS & SUCCESSFUL. Success should and does ONLY depend on you-but only if we do not fear. The message from the funny man isn't funny, its striking. What are you doing that is moving you closer to your goals? Keep doing that. Now ask yourself what are you doing that isn't helping? Now stop doing that. We must learn to swim. What I mean is sometimes you need to make opportunities happen for yourself by trying more and not being afraid of rejection. Rejection or failure is what PREVENTS so many from reaching their potential or just being mildly successful in life. Its what prevents people from swimming out to their ship and instead just waiting for it to come in- if it ever does! So learn to SWIM. Learn to face rejection and let it refine you and make you more successful. How do you become better at it? By facing it. What are some areas that you are holding back because you fear failure? Start there. You WONT get 100% of the things you don't ask for but if you ask, you at least have a 50% chance! Do you see the message today? TRY, TRY and TRY again! Do not fear failure but rather fear not trying at all!

Have a great day and a wonderful weekend- facing your fears!

Rooting for you all!
