SUCCESS : Double Time !

Les Brown, a noted inspirational speaker, tells the story of one of his friends, a salesman, who was in financial trouble because sales were down. Les asked him, "How many phone calls are you making a day?" His friend answered, "Twenty five."

Les didn't hesitate with his advice. "Double them," he said. "Make fifty. Or seventy-five. Or one hundred."

The salesman answered, "Aw, man. that's too much."
"Too much!" replied Les. "You tell me that you are behind on your bills and then you say it's too much. You know, one way to get back on your feet real quick is to miss two car payments. How can you say anything is too much when you have everything at stake?"

The advice Les Brown gave his friend needs to be heard by people everywhere. It's amazing what we can do when we're "hungry" for success. Most people who say "I've tried," haven't scratched the surface of their potential.

Today, why not make a commitment to achieve your personal best?

  1. 'Hungry For Success', very tempting phrase indeed. An average person like most of us today won't apply above phrase as their inspiration motto. Average person leads a modest life & always dwell in their own comfort zone. That's explain why these type of people won't go far, always stuck in a traffic. But if we average person inclined to be successful is not impossible either. Just Double UP our effort & always keep ourself FULLY MOTIVATED at all times. Insha'Allah...we can achieve our DREAM! Keeps on going...going..going & leave out all the rest!
