Never Quit

“You may be the only person left who believes in you, but it’s enough. It takes just one star to pierce a universe of darkness. Never quit.” ― Richelle E. Goodrich

“The world’s greatest achievers have been those who have always stayed focused on their goals and have been consistent in their efforts.” ― Roopleen

The separation of talent and skill is one of the  greatest misunderstood concept for people that are trying to excel, who have dreams that wanna do things. Talent, you have naturally. Skill, is only developed by hours and hours and hours of beating on your craft. I’ve never really viewed myself as particularly  talented, where I excel is ridiculous sickening work ethic. You know while the other guys are sleeping, I am working. While the other guys are eating, I am working. There is no easy way around it.

No matter how talented you are, your talent is gonna fail if you’re not skilled. You know – if you don’t study, if you don’t work really hard and dedicate yourself to be better every single day, you’ll not be able to communicate with the people or the way that you want. The only thing that I see that is distinctly different about me is I am not afraid to die on a treadmill. You might have more talent than me, you might be smarter than me, but if we get on the treadmill together, these are two things – Either you are getting off first or I am gonna die.

There are those of you right now – your life is not where you want it to be. You’re messed up. Or you’re doing good, but you can’t find a way to get to great. But remember, JUST BECAUSE YOU FAIL, DOESN’T MAKE YOU A FAILURE! One of the things you have to understand is that you are supposed to fail. You are supposed to fucking fail. Because failure is the stepping stone to success. It’s not just a clique.

“Success is not obtained overnight. It comes in installments; you get a little bit today, a little bit tomorrow until the whole package is given out. The day you procrastinate, you lose that day’s success.” ― Israelmore Ayivor

I don’t care how good you are. I don’t care how talented you are. I don’t care how much you work on yourself. There are sometimes when things aren’t gonna go right. They just are not going to go right. There are times when anything that can happen, will happen. You gotta believe in yourself. You gotta believe in your abilities. You gotta believe in your service, your company, your ideas, unquestionably! You gotta have faith and that faith gives you patience. That’s not gonna happen as quickly as you want it to happen. It’s your dream, if you want it to happen, get your butt up and make it happen! If you want to have it – RISE and GRIND.

If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards. I dare you not to go back to sleep, I dare you to get up and I dare you to chase your dream. It’s possible you can live! Whatever comes to you, don’t run from it. Don’t try and duck it like most people do. Winners are not the people who never fail, but the people who never quit. Never quit. Run towards it. If you wanna make your dream come true, you have to stay focused. Some people love to get even and then get ahead. You gotta stay focused on where you want to go.

Think. Where are you going with your life?

 

Fear

“Fear can be good when you’re walking past an alley at night or when you need to check the locks on your doors before you go to bed, but it’s not good when you have a goal and you’re fearful of obstacles. We often get trapped by our fears, but anyone who has had success has failed before.” – Queen Latifah.

Man is the master of thoughts, the molder of character and the maker and shaper of condition, environment and destiny. Most men fail not through lack of education but from lack of dogged determination, from lack of dauntless will. Even dramatic situations like bankruptcy, divorce, death and economic recession cannot directly cause a feeling of any kind until the brain interprets and creates a story about sad situation.

Sadness, depression, frustration, upset and anxiety can only be produced by seeing a situation and producing an interpretation of it, and then believing that interpretation. Therefore you and I can only be overwhelmed by our thoughts about something, never the thing itself.

Usually what we most fear doing is what we most need to do. That phone call, that conversation, whatever the action might be, it is the fear of unknown outcomes that prevents us from doing what we need to do. Define the worst case, accept it and do it. I’ll repeat something… “What we fear doing most is usually what me most need to do.”

“The thing you fear most has no power. Your fear of it is what has the power. Facing the truth really will set you free.” – Oprah Winfrey. “I don’t get lucky. I make my own luck.” Here is the big challenge of life. You can have more than you’ve got because you can become more than you are. And, of course, the other side of the coin reads, unless you change how you are, you’ll always have what you got.

Success is something you attract, not something you pursue. Success is looking for a good place to stay. So instead of going after it, you work on your self-personal development. One of the challenges we have in our lives is we don’t realize that, the process of training ourselves, the process of conditioning ourselves actually feels incredible once you get that initial momentum.

If you want a lasting change, you gotta give up this idea of trying something. You gotta just decide you’re gonna commit to master. Most people don’t get out on the arena of life because they don’t wanna fight. Most people don’t get out there because they don’t wanna get knocked down, they don’t wanna be dropped to their knees. But see, you gonna be dropped whether you are on the field or whether not just sitting on the sidelines, you’re gonna be dropped!

The last six thousand years reads like this, Opportunity mixed with difficulty. That’s how it is and that’s not gonna change. You must learn to handle the nights, they come right after days. You must learn to handle difficulties, it comes right after opportunity. You must learn to handle recession, they always follow possessions.

Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better. Priority is power. The more clear you’re with exactly what you want, the more your brain knows how to get there. Your reasons will drive you. When you have doubt, when your faith becomes weak, your reason to acquire your ideas fail. When you have a greater state of saying “No”, don’t do that. The reasons will become the war in your step. They conquer you and take you through those challenging moments.

“Each of us must confront our own fears, must come face to face with them. How we handle our fears will determine where we go with the rest of our lives. To experience adventure or to be limited by the fear of it.” -Judy Blume.

Get knocked down so you can learn how to fight, so you can hold your position. The world turns when we turn with it. Plans disappear. Dreams takeover. Every journey ends. But we go on…

Story of a Bank Teller

“Bank tellers have it easy; they get paid to count money all day.”

This ain’t right. Yes, bank tellers are surrounded by money all day, but it’s not so carefree as it seems. Just handling money isn’t a bank teller’s job, but handling money accurately while providing outstanding customer service is. Each customer entering a bank interacts with a teller, thus making the customer service skill paramount for keeping the customers content.

In fact, this is one of the riskiest jobs while it comes to monetary transactions. Recently, as a trainee in a bank, I’ve been assisting Mr.Ghimire in the cash department. He is no doubt an expert in this field, and the way he carries himself throughout is simply breath taking. The speed he maintains, absolute accuracy of the monetary transactions and a friendly nature with everyone around tops it all. Not only in professional level, but even personally I immensely got motivated to write something about it.

The first thing I saw was – “Multitasking”. A teller should be pro at it. Cashing checks, depositing money, collecting loan payments and being able to satisfy customers as soon as possible without having them to wait long, all at once and with perfect upshot! Sounds like a teller’s job is a tough nut to crack, right? But no, it’s not. Neither it’s a rocket science, nor includes any formulas for the operation but small things in rapid way because speed matters here. Every customer is in a hurry to get their things done asap, so the more faster and accurate, the more better.

As a customer in a queue, I never thought of what the person behind the bars went through. A long queue of restless people, lots of cash, and that subconscious feel of getting everything in risk including con artists and even robberies, as the security of all transactions is in charge of the teller. In this process of assisting, I got to know the value of a zero and a typo. A miss in the entry and you could end up putting up your entire paycheck for the loss or even more.

Though it’s a job of processing routine transactions, the good part I saw is that the teller could interact with a wide variety of people and work in a professional environment. Well, bank provides various facilities to the employees and on the other hand, it helps to deal with every type of people and in personal enrichment. The way they do those stuffs with people’s assets, is truely fascinating. Even I used to remain spell bound with whatever my senior performed. Neither did he complain anything about the job, nor the remuneration or the risks. All he had was respect to the job he was in.

I realized how important a job is. Not just as a teller, or your job or mine or anyone in particular, but any job. It gives you an identity, people know you by it. And how carelessness in any job can make you as well as others suffer. I learnt how important it is to perform your job with all your enthusiasm and not to underestimate it no matter how much you get paid for it. It’s your job which gives you an identity, like how a simple job of cooking can make u a chef if done brilliantly with innovation.
