How Ordinary People Become Successful – Powerful Motivation 2017

Mindset Shift You Need to Help the Ordinary Become Successful.


You have a dream and you have goals.  Whatever you do, don’t give up on your dreams.

Others will.

People don’t stand up and protect their dreams.

Not you.

Be different.




Look to those who have achieved what you desire.  Not out of envy, but curiosity.

You can take the “what do they know approach”, or you can take the, “what can I learn approach”.




Look at yourself in the mirror.

What do you want?

Now look again and tell yourself, “I Can, I Will”.

No one is going to stop me.

No matter how many people tell you that you can’t, You Can.




Refuse to follow the rules of FEAR.

Even the BEST question themselves.  Don’t be so hard on yourself.

Success cannot be achieved without Failure.


The only way forward is to decide you want that dream more than you want to stay in your comfort zone.


You cannot stop believing.  Success is not given.  It’s hard work.

“They don’t give away Bentley’s.  It’s NEVER on Sale.”

Whatever you need to do, do it.


There are those who have the Talent but no motivation.

Then there are those with no talent but with all the determination.

Determination keeps moving you forward.

The day you stop getting better, is the day you start walking backwards.  The determined will find a way to move past the undetermined every time.




You are not born a legend

You become one.
