Adversity Is A Friend To Business

Warren Dickson a successful mountain climber happened to have a terrible accident in which both his legs were amputated. A one tone rock fell on his both legs and it took three days for help to finally arrive. He had to endure a lot of pain, cold and mosquitoes. By the time doctors arrived, it was too late, they couldn't save his legs. This event was such a huge set back in his life since he needed his two feet to climb mountains. This sport was the only thing in his life that gave him self-worth and a livelihood.

After a few months, he was given some metallic prostrated limbs and after months of rigorous exercise; he was back on his feet. Using these limbs, he began mountain climbing again after a few years. His passion not fading he began wheelchair basketball and then later attempted bicycle riding competition. Today, Warren Dickson is an Olympic bicycle riding record holder, he has won many medals for the best mountain climber, and plays basket ball despite his disability. He earns millions of dollars and has become among the richest sports men in the world.

In business, even in our career path, what we think is a setback, in most cases is our comeback and is one of the things that rewards us and redirects our path towards a wider and greater destiny. There are bad things that happen to us and we feel a lot of pain, but after sometime, we look back and appreciate them.

Sometimes I think that if adversity was absent, life would be boring. Don't give up on your small business just because you are encountering difficulties. If I ever gave up on my online business I wouldn't be here to tell you of my success.

Achievement - Power And Ability Of A Positive Mind

“Attitude is everything!” This statement carries so much truth that if every one took time to think about it and make necessary adjustment in life, then our lives would change for the better. Many times in our quest for self improvement, we have concentrated on changing and improving many things but our attitude.

Attitude is a person’s frame of mind. It is the mindset that a person has that helps him to develop a world view. Attitude is expressed by how we respond to issues. One person once said, “Life is not what happens to you but how you respond to issues”. Two individuals may encounter a similar negative situation but how they will each respond will determine the outcome.

One of the main attitudes we need to embrace is cultivating a positive mindset or attitude. As you read through history you encounter ordinary individuals who did extra ordinary things. Moses in the Bible was known to stammer in his speech but he became the deliverer. Abraham Lincoln on the other hand educated himself; he had no formal education but became the most acclaimed president in the history of the United States.

Mother Teresa, a simple nun in Calcutta also became an icon through her acts of mercy and philanthropy. The list could go on and on. What characterized these people was a positive mindset, they all believed in possibilities and they responded decisively for the good of humanity.

Regardless of your present status and condition, you can accomplish anything with positive thinking. There is power that is released through positive thinking and once it is released, it will always work for you. Positive thinking acts to enhance your abilities and virtues. Nothing is impossible to him that believes.
