The Most Powerful Motivational Speeches That I Have Ever Heard, Came From People Who Told Me I Could Not Do Something – CT Fletcher
I found this video today and something about it really stuck with me and got me thinking about all the people in my life who have told me I could not do something I wanted to do.
Hearing “you can’t do that” or “stop dreaming” have been phrases I have heard my entire life from family, friends, bosses, co-workers and just about any other person who has been part of my life.
Don’t get me wrong, there have been people who had ambitious mindsets who always told me to go get what ever I wanted and don’t let anything or anyone stand in my way, I love people who have that mindset but they are few and far between.
Most people these days have been told “no” so many times that the words “i can’t” have completely replaced “i can” and they go through the motions of life never really aspiring to do any more than they current are because they have the mindset they are going to fail before they even begin.
I am far from achieving my dreams, hell most of the times I feel like I am still at ground zero and just getting started because I have had so many setbacks and failures in my life, but none of them have killed my dreams and weakened my ambition.
It is like Les Brown says “There are winners, there are losers and there are those who have not figured out how to win”
I have not figured out how to win, YET!!
For me, failure is not an option, it does not exist in my vocabulary and I will succeed and I am all in to making it happen.
If you find yourself in a similar situation and have not yet figured out how to win, don’t give up!! don’t give up!!
