Do you actually believe that there are certain restrictions in what kind of success you can achieve in life? Senator Barack Obama has this saying he’s been using on the campaign trail that, “ordinary people can do extraordinary things.” How true! Each and every elected official from a small town mayor to the President of the United States started somewhere. For some it was an easier road to success than others. What’s most important is that you never give up with any goal you set for yourself in life.
We are all products of our experiences and we will all make mistakes and learn lessons along the way. Do not spend too much time worrying about that past and use those experiences for building a better future. Sure this may sound like a lot of political speak and it is, but there is also a lot of truth to it.
So what’s my point in all this? Simply, be the best person you can be. Don’t take “No” for an answer. Keep going, because some day somewhere when you least expect it you'll get a phone call asking you to be somebody you’ve always wanted to become.
Will you answer the call?
