Do You Care About The Odds?

The reality television programs “America’s Got Talent” and “American Idol” have been achieved phenomenal success for several seasons and I personally enjoy the behind the scenes stories of the candidates witnessing what so many have had to overcome to get their shot at stardom. I have been a person who has never really cared about the odds; whether it’s the probability of achieving a short term goal or a lifelong  dream and these stories reaffirm for me the fact that you should never underestimate the strength of desire in the human heart.

One story that illustrates this so perfectly is that of Paul Potts, a want to be opera singer who did not appear to have the qualities required to make the cut at auditions let alone become a world renowned recording artist. I want to share his story and his performance with you hoping that it will inspire you to adopt my simple philosophy – the odds just don’t matter!

Here is the video: Do Odds Matter to You?

The application of this lesson is simple. Do not let anyone steal your dream, practice your craft and surround yourself with those who believe in you and your dream. Keep your mind open to possiblilties and recognize that you will attract opportunities into your life to advance your dream and when the opportunity presents itself sieze it!

I welcome your comments and hope this inspires you to new hieghts in your business and your life.
