How to avoid being constrained by perception

How many potentially stellar careers have been crushed before they even began by discouraging words from those we think must be right because they know us so well? People like mum, dad or a teacher?

Consider this scenario; a child says to mum and dad, “When I grow up I want to be a footballer.”

Mum and dad respond by saying, “You’ll never succeed at football son, you’re not good enough. You’d be better thinking about a different career.”

Now what would be the impact of such an exchange on a child? Just think about it for a second.

Mum and dad will have meant well, almost certainly. They’d think they were giving their child an honest response based on their perception of the child’s ability.

No doubt they were thinking that getting to the top in professional sport is tough and few actually make it. And perhaps they perceive the child as being a bit less than sporty and feel he’d be better off pursuing a different line of work. Their thinking would be to save the child from disappointment in the future.

Regardless of any good intentions on mum and dad’s part however, how would the child be affected here? Firstly what he will actually have heard was, “You’re not good enough” regardless of any sugar-coating mum and dad may have applied to their words.

Such negativity oft repeated is extremely damaging to a child. A child’s dreams are easily crushed.

Gradually they are conditioned to believe they have little to offer the world and they will go through life acting accordingly, with little in the way of dreams or ambition.

The limits of perception:

The person others perceive us to be can be hard to escape. Perception is everything.

Our progress in life, as well as in our careers, can be constrained by the perception others have of us.

We have many sides to our personality and the capacity and talent to do many things. And yet few people, if any, see the full extent of what we have to offer.

So people put us in imaginary pigeon holes of where they believe our place in life should be.

People struggle to see beyond the limits of what they perceive us to be.

And sadly, all too often our own actions serve only to reinforce this limited view.

You have no limits, only untapped potential:

How we’re perceived to be is rarely an accurate reflection of what we have to offer. Most people are in fact a bottomless reservoir of untapped potential.

Most things can be achieved if you want them badly enough and you’re prepared to work hard enough to get them.

And it doesn’t matter whether other people believe you can achieve it, as long as you believe you can achieve it.

Believe you can and you will. The converse of that is true too. So be positive and avoid the siren voices of negativity.

Know what you want:

It really is important to know what you want.

However, how can we know what we really want? This is particularly true when we’re young and have little experience of life to use as a basis for judgement.

Well if you’re not sure about what you want, just keep looking. Move around regularly if you have to, trying different experiences until you find something that really ‘floats your boat’.

Showcase your ability and talents as much as you can too. That way, people may approach you with potential experiences you hadn’t even considered.

Focus on your goal:

Once you know what you want, that becomes a goal on which to focus.

Decide what you need to do to achieve that goal and then pursue it with determination and as much hard work as is necessary.

Don’t forget lives need balance too:

Pursuing your goal is a worthy aim. However in doing so, make sure you have some balance in your life.

That means having a sense of purpose but also a pastime and someone special in your life too.

Achieving all three is what balance is all about.

Visibility matters:

Take every opportunity to show other people what you can do.

You must make sure that people have full visibility of everything you have to offer.

Never hide your light under a bushel. There’s nothing wrong with self-promotion.

If you don’t look after your own interests then no one else will.

Dream big and ignore negative people:

Life is what you make it. You’re not constrained by how others see you. The only limits are the artificial ones that act like invisible walls. However they can only be limits if you allow them to be.

And you don’t have to allow them to get in the way. Simply refuse to be constrained and pursue your dreams.

Don’t be afraid to dream big and ignore anyone who suggests you cannot achieve your ambition.

You can and you should. Making your mark and leaving a legacy is a worthy aim.

So go on; be the person you really could be.

If wealth is your aim then this is the best way to get rich

Business opportunities are like buses, there’s always another one coming. ~Richard Branson

How would you like to be seriously rich dear reader? Never having to worry about money again? Would that appeal to you? I’m sure it would.

I’m sure everyone dreams of being a millionaire, at least occasionally. However what is the best path to achieving riches?

Well one excellent way, without doubt, is to start a business. Some of the world’s richest people achieved wealth through starting a business. People like Jeff Bezos for instance, and Richard Branson of course.

Now you might question whether this is a good time to start a business. However it’s always a good time to start a business, if you approach it in the right way.

There will always be customers for goods and services, that’s the nature of human existence. Jobs may be in short supply but there will always be plenty of customers.

Essentially business is about providing people with solutions to their problems. A customer has a problem and business offers a product which provides a solution. It’s that simple.

People will always have problems for which they need help. And over time those problems tend to change. So there will always be a constant stream of business opportunities there for the fleet-footed entrepreneur.

If wealth is your aim, then there will always be opportunities to make serious amounts of money in business.

If you can see the world through the customer’s eyes and think about what customers may need to solve their problems then you can succeed in business.

If you can spot a problem for which currently there is no obvious solution then that’s a gap in the market and it’s the basis for a business opportunity.

However even when there is a solution available to a customer problem, if you can offer a better solution, or the same solution cheaper, then that too is a business opportunity.

Just think about customers and what they may need and how you can provide it for them.

If you can learn to look for customers, rather than jobs, and hunt down the skills and know-how to get and then serve those customers then you’ll always have work and you’ll have wealth too.

So what is the best way to get rich? Think customer; think business opportunity. Spot an opportunity; start a business; and get going on the road to wealth.

1. National identity:

A Scotsman, a Welshman, an Irishman and an Englishman were captured while fighting in a foreign war.

Their situation is quite desperate when the leader of their captors suddenly announces, “As enemies of our people, you will all be shot by firing squad. You’ll each be shot in turn. However we’re civilised people, so first you’ll each be allowed a final request.

The Scotsman says quickly, “I’d like to hear ‘Flower of Scotland’ played by the Band of the Scots Guards, to remind me of happy days in bonny Scotland.” He then shouts, “Scotland forever!

The Welshman says, “Well I’d like to hear ‘Men of Harlech’ sung by the Treorchy Male Voice Choir to remind me of the green, green grass of home and those happy times when I lived in the Valleys.” He then shouts, “God bless the Land of my Fathers!

The Irishman, not to be outdone, says, “For me I want to hear ‘Danny Boy’ just one more time to remind me of the auld country. I want it sung in the style of Daniel O’Donnell.” Then, taking his lead from his Celtic cousins he shouts, “Éirinn go Brách.

The leader of their captors then looks at the Englishman who’s remained very quiet up to this point. “So Englishman, what’s your request?” he says.

The Englishman responds, “I’d like to be shot first.

2. Nun outside a Dublin bar:

A guy is walking into a Dublin bar and standing right outside the door is a nun.

Top of the morning to you sister!” says the guy with a smile.

The nun looks at him sternly and says, “Before you enter this den of iniquity please think about your mother and your father.

But sister, my poor mother and father have long since passed away sadly. They’re with the angels now” the guy responds.

Then think of the damage the alcohol will do to your brain” says the nun.

Sister, what are you talking about? Have you ever had a drink?” asks the guy.

No! Certainly not!” says the nun.

Then in the name of God sister, how can you say it damages the brain if you’ve never actually had a drink?” asks the guy.

The guy thinks for a minute and then he says, “Listen sister, I’ll tell you what. I’ll go in and get you a drink, you can try it and if you don’t like it then you can talk about it. But you can’t talk about something you’ve never even experienced.

The nun says, “Alright, I’ll try a drink.

The guy then says, “So, what’ll you have then?

I don’t know”, says the nun “What do ladies generally drink?

The guy says, “All the ones I know like a glass of gin.

The nun smiles and says, “Alright, I’ll have a gin but get it in a cup so no one will notice.”

So the guy goes into the bar and says to the barman, “I’ll have a pint of Guinness please bartender and a large gin. But can you put the gin in a cup.

The barman smiles at him and says, “Jeez, is that feckin’ nun hanging around outside again.

3. Life in Hell:

John did his best to lead a good and honest life but sadly, on his passing, he’s allocated a place in Hell.

John arrives at the gates of Hell, a little disappointed and he’s looking fairly despondent when another man walks up to him and says, “Hello I’m Jim, you’re looking a little glum.

To which John replies, “Well, I thought I’d be enjoying a place in heaven right now but nothing ever works out like you think it will, does it?

Seeing John’s not very happy, Jim tries to cheer him up. “Listen buddy, Hell isn’t so bad really.

John says, “Really?

Yeah, really”, says Jim. “Hey, do like beer?

Yes I love beer”, John responds.

Then you’ll love Fridays here in Hell. Every Friday is beer day. We drink gallons and gallons of beer all day long. There’s no limit, you can drink as much as you like”, says Jim.

Doesn’t that make you sick and give you a terrible hangover?” asks John

No! We’re dead! It has no effect on us”, says Jim. “Hey, do you like drugs?

Well, I did smoke a little Mary Jane in my College days”, says John.

Then you’ll love Saturdays here in Hell”, says Jim. “Every Saturday we smoke marijuana all day long. We smoke doobies as big as submarines. It’s fantastic.

Doesn’t that make you sick?” asks John

No! We’re dead! It has no effect on us”, says Jim. “Do you like food?

Sure, who doesn’t like food? I love food,” says John.

Then you’re going to love Sundays here in Hell”, says Jim. “Every Sunday they roast Ox; a whole one for each of us. We stuff ourselves with roast Ox and all the trimmings all day long. In Hell we do everything to excess and doing everything to excess is mandatory here. We’re dead, so no worries.

Wow!” says John. “Hell actually sounds like a really fun place.

It does, doesn’t it?” Jim responds.

Hey, are you Gay?” Jim then asks.

No”, says John “I love sex with women.

Jim frowns and says, “Hmm, in that case you’ll hate Mondays.

4. Unrealistic expectations:

A recent engineering graduate is having an interview for his first job with a big technology company.

The young graduate is fresh out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and he’s clearly very impressed with himself.

As the interview is nearing an end the Human Resources officer asks him, “So John, what are your expectations in terms of a starting salary?

The young graduate replies, “Well I’d be looking for something in the region of $125,000 a year. However the exact figure I’d accept would depend on the benefits package.

His interviewer smiles and says, “Well John, what would you say to 5 weeks annual vacation, 14 paid holidays, full medical and dental cover, the company matching your retirement fund to 50% of your salary, plus a company car, say a Ford Mustang GT?

The young graduate engineer sits up straight and says, “Wow! Are you kidding?

The HR officer replies, “Yes of course I am John, but you started it.

5. Bus full of ugly people:

A bus full of ugly people is involved in a head on collision with a truck and all the passengers are killed.

They all arrive in heaven and, feeling sorry for them, God decides they can each have one wish.

A woman is the first person and she says, “I want to be gorgeous.

So God snaps his fingers and suddenly she is stunningly attractive.

A man is next and he makes a similar request. “I want to be handsome” he says.

This goes on with each passenger in turn essentially making the same request. They all want to be irresistibly good looking.

With a number of passengers yet to express their wish, God notices that the last man in the line who has also yet to make a request is laughing hysterically.

By the time God gets to the last few people, the last man in the line is laughing uncontrollably and he’s rolling around on the ground.

When it comes to his turn the man laughs some more and then says, “I wish they’re all ugly again.

Moral of the story: In any group there’s always one person hell bent on making life difficult for everyone else.

6. The warrior and the old man:

A fleeing warrior is lost in the desert and he’s in desperate need of water.

Suddenly he sees what he thinks is a stall far off in the distance.

Hoping he might find water there, he hurries towards the stall only to find a little old man selling ties.

The warrior asks, “Do you have any water?

The old replies, “No I don’t have any water. Would you like to buy a tie? They’re only $5.

The warrior is irritated by his response and says, “No! I don’t need an over-priced tie right now. I need water! You realize I’m armed? I could kill you. However I must find water first.

Alright” says the old man, “It doesn’t matter to me that you don’t want to buy a tie and that you don’t like me. I will show you that I’m the bigger person. If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant, owned by my brother. It will have all the ice cold water you need. God be with you“.

Muttering, the warrior staggers off over the hill.

Several hours later he staggers back, almost dead.

Your brother won’t let me in without a tie.

7. The magic trick:

Two broke and hungry friends, Bill and George walk into a pastry shop in Manhattan.

As the baker’s back is turned, Bill grabs three cookies quickly and stuffs them in his trouser pocket with lightning speed.

The baker’s back is still turned, so he doesn’t notice.

Bill smiles at George, winks his eye and says, “Did you see that? Did you see how clever I was there? You’ll never beat that will you?

Really? You think so? Watch this.” George replies.

He then says to the baker, “If you’ll give me a cookie, I’ll show you a magic trick. And I promise you, you’ll be impressed.

So the baker hands him a cookie which George then eats.

Then George says to the baker: “I’ll need another cookie from you for my magic trick to work.

The baker is a bit suspicious but he gives George another cookie. Once again he eats the cookie.

Then George says, “I’m really sorry but I’ll need one more cookie if this trick is to work.

The baker is really not amused by now and he says, “Is this some kind of joke?

George assures him the trick is genuine and all will be revealed after the next Cookie. So the baker gives him another cookie which George promptly eats, once again.

The baker is starting to get mad and he yells, “So where’s the magic?

George points at Bill and then says: “You’ll find three cookies in this guy’s pocket. That’s magic!

8. A woman golfing:

A woman is out golfing. Playing off the first tee, she’s not quite got her swing right and she slices the ball on her first attempt and watches it disappear deep into the woods.

Not a great start she thinks. So she trudges off looking for her ball.

As she’s scratching around in the woods she can’t find her ball but she does find a frog stuck in a trap.

The frog is relieved to have finally been discovered, having been stuck there for quite some time. So the frog says to the woman, “Lady, if you release me from this trap, I will grant you three wishes.

Now who wouldn’t want three wishes? So the woman immediately frees the frog.

The frog is grateful but then says, “Lady, thank you. I appreciate your help. However I failed to mention that there will be a condition to your wishes.

A little puzzled, the woman asks, “And what’s that?

Well” says the frog, “Whatever you wish for, your husband will also receive but multiplied by a factor of ten!

The woman thinks for a minute and then says, “That’s fine.

Then for her first wish she says, “I want to be the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog smiles but warns her, “You do realize that this wish will also make your husband the most handsome man in the world? He will be an Adonis and no woman will be able to resist his charms.

The woman thinks for a minute and then says, “That’s alright, because I will be the most beautiful woman in the world, so he will only have eyes for me.

With that there is a ‘Poof’ sound and the woman is immediately transformed into the most beautiful woman in the world.

The frog then says, “And for your second wish? What would you like?

For her second wish the woman says, “I want to be the richest woman in the world.

Once again the frog feels compelled to issue a warning. “Lady, this will make your husband the richest man in the world. And he will be ten times richer than you.

The woman says, “That’s fine. We’re married, so what’s mine is his and what’s his is mine.

Once again there is a ‘Poof’ sound and the woman is suddenly the richest woman in the world.

The frog then says, “Right, it’s now time for your final wish. What will it be?

The woman replies, “I’d like a mild heart attack.

Moral of the story: Women are clever. So don’t mess with them.

Attention Female Readers: This is the end of the joke for you. Stop here and continue to feel good.

 

Male Readers: Please scroll down.

 

 

 

The man had a heart attack ten times milder than his wife.

Moral of the story: Women think they’re really smart. Let them continue to think that way and just enjoy the show.

Note: And ladies if you’re still reading this, it only goes to show that women never listen to men.

Success and why you should never quit

It’s always too early to quit. ~Norman Vincent Peale

Achieving any form of success requires determination and a lot of hard work. Anything you want can be yours, if you want it badly enough, but nothing’s for free. The price you’ll pay is in blood, sweat and tears.

The road to success will also inevitably involve occasional setbacks. That’s the nature of the game we call success. And it is a game where the best players are the winners.

So you’ll need to be single-minded and you’ll need to push yourself very hard. It’s not easy and nor is it meant to be.

From time to time self-doubt will creep into your mind. You’ll start to imagine that maybe you’re not quite good enough. Siren voices in your head will start telling you that it’s all too difficult and that maybe it’s time to quit.

You may even start asking yourself, “Why am I putting myself through all the hard work when I could just spend my life cruising along and having fun?”

The problem is, no pain, no gain. And if you quit, you’ll spend your life wondering what might have been.

So just keep your eye on the prize. Nothing worth having was ever easy to achieve. However it can be done and people do.

You can do it too. All you need is a little self-belief and a genuine desire to make your mark on life.

Just ignore any setbacks; ignore any siren voices in your head; and refuse to give up until you get to where you want to be.

Remember this; quitters never win and winners never quit. Greatness lies within you. So go on, be a winner.
