Dealing With Mistakes

By: Jeff Mccall

Earl Nightingale once said "What the mind can conceive and truly
believe, it can achieve!"

Was he right? Well you tell me, the proof is right in front of you! Take
a look around, right now, this very moment. Everything you see before
you, the consumer goods, the furnishings, the decoration, they all began
as a flicker of an idea in someone's imagination.

The truth is, you can achieve absolutely anything you want to. But you
have to be realistic here, you have to take account of your own physical
limitations. I mean, if you're currently enjoying the autumn of your
life, I'm sorry to have to tell you, you ain't going to win an Olympic
gold medal in the 100 metres sprint. And if you throw yourself off the
top of a hundred storey building, flap your arms as much as you like,
but rather than soar with the birds you'll still make a nasty mess on
the pavement.

If you're still with me, you'll appreciate that there's an absolute
limit to your potential that I'll call your "real ceiling". Now unless
you're pretty peculiar, the chances are that you're currently living
under a "false ceiling" that you've created and installed all by
yourself. Didn't know you were a craftsman did you?

This "false ceiling" is severely restricting your growth. It's so low,
you're banging your head on it every time you try to stand up straight.
Your banging your head so much, trying to achieve anything is a constant
headache. Ouch! There you go again!

A lot of people have made a big mistake, they've built their "false
ceiling" no more than three or four feet from the floor.

They can't even
sit up straight without banging their heads. Are you one of them?

So how high is your "real ceiling" then? Imagine you're standing in an
atrium, or even a cathedral, where the ceiling towers above you by as
much as 100 ft or more. There's your "real ceiling"! Look up, how high
is that? You'll get a stiff neck just looking.

This "real ceiling" is the limit of what you can realistically and
absolutely achieve in your life. But here's where it gets interesting.

I want you to imagine everything you've ever desired, even in your
wildest dreams, the fast car, the big house, the money, the power, the
happiness. How high is your "dream ceiling"?

Believe it or not, in order to achieve everything in your wildest dreams
you would only have to reach a ceiling of about 50 ft. "But hang on a
minute" I hear you cry "that's only half the height of my real ceiling!"
Exactly! It's well below your "real ceiling", so you should be able to
reach it easily shouldn't you? Your wildest dreams are all easily

Just imagine for a moment that you've broken through your self-imposed
"false ceiling". You're standing up straight and tall, and for the first
time in your life you're not banging your head. You look up and can
clearly see your "real ceiling" towering above you. You can do
absolutely anything that any other person who has abilities similar to
yours has done. What's more, you could even surpassed them. How
fantastic is that?

Yes, you could become very successful online if that's what you want.
There are tens of thousands of people around the world making a
successful living online. It can't be that difficult otherwise all those
people wouldn't have achieved it, right? These people aren't special,
they're just like you and me. The majority are just honest, hard-working
people who have access to exactly the same opportunities and knowledge
as you.

So what's stopping you? Quite simply, you are!

No, not your background, upbringing, education, partner, the government,
next door's cat, or even the man in the moon. They're all excuses that
reinforce your "false ceiling" and make it harder for you to smash your
way through.

You've got to start taking responsibility for your own life. All it
takes is a little self belief and you can begin hacking away at that
"false ceiling" of yours. Imagine how much you can save in Aspirin from
all those headaches! Even better, imagine where you'll be this time next
year when you're used to standing tall and gazing up at your "real

Remember, you can achieve everything that your mind can conceive, so
long as you truly believe. But firstComputer Technology Articles, you must believe in yourself.

Be successful.
