Success Comes In Cans

Success comes in cansThe 2011 March Madness is giving us a few unwanted surprises to say the least. We saw all # 1 seeds go down in defeat. It was a disappointment, if not a heartbreak, to many I am sure. Just because KU came up short of playing in the final four, do we call them losers? ABSOLUTELY NOT. No one likes to lose. But losing is part of playing the game, and it is a lot different than failure. The Jayhawks FAILED to accomplish their personal objective for this season. Let us remember that this same team was crowned the Big 12 Champions a few weeks ago. Losers they are not.
I am confident that coaches of all those teams put together plans to help insure a victory for their respective schools. But a great plan is not the end game. EXECUTING; executing the plan more effectively is what counts. Moreover, the idea that a team is only successful if it wins ALL THE TIME is a myth, if not impossible. The Miami Dolphins were successful in accomplishing this feat in only one season, and only once throughout the history of the NFL. The team that possesses strong convictions and the belief in their collective abilities to overcome obstacles, will eventually find “profit” in their efforts; and can NEVER be labeled losers. So is the case in any business endeavor. Ultimately, effective execution of the proper plan produces positive outcomes.
In order to accomplish anything of substance or value, one has to get out of bed. I call this “The Wake Up Call”. Some wake up early, bright and cheerful; others linger on and may need three alarm clocks just to open their eyes. So, I pose these questions: What burning desire propelled you to leap out of bed this morning? What is today’s plan of action? What are your goals for the day, the week, the month, etc.? Each day we all face obstacles to overcome, whether they are of personal or professional nature.
A careful assessment of any situation, coupled with resiliency, dedication, determination, and a clear objective, will help in overcoming life’s obstacles. Success does not care how you get there, as long as you make the choice to get up and get started. Once the choice is made, the key word is ACTION…get started. It is your choice. You can make it happen, or someone else will make the choice for you.
Choices are lessons in themselves. You learn the outcome after the choice has been acted upon. A careful and well orchestrated plan will help mitigate unwanted outcomes. Yogi Berra once said, ” When you come to a fork in the road, take it !” What Yogi really meant to say, is by making a decision you have fifty-fifty chance at success. By doing nothing, there is the likelihood of a high percentage of failure. Consider your choices carefully, they determine your life. Do not accept a failure to define you or who you are.
Most people think that action follows motivation. Others find that the opposite is true. To which philosophy you subscribe is not as important as the need to have both. As a young man I was hungry for success and a better life. Through luck or fate, a choice was offered for me to immigrate to the United States. Instead of waiting for my motivation to kick in, I got on a plane. I acted, arrived, and found that I can be a success when I have a precise goal, a proper plan of action, the will to get up and go, to understand and have the empathy with the needs of my client. I had the desire, the dedication and the determination to succeed. This attitude helped me achieve my goals. In the South there is a saying, “keep on keepin’ on “. After all, as has been said, “ success comes in cans, not in cannots”.

    Doyle is consistently able to not only keep terrific members in his group, but can often come up with outstanding arrangements of his material. No a single else has ever done it better. Besides that, he is usually a definitely pleasurable person to be around. His band may possibly not constantly enjoy the lengthy practices, but they are what keeps them sharp, and such a pleasure to hear. Keep it up. God Bless, Wayne
