My daughter's lips have nothing to do with this story, but they are just so cute, I had to add them here.

Brian Tracy is a motivational speaker who has helped many people find ways to get motivated and live a better life. At one of his seminars a man told him that he was a plumber and had gone as high as he could go in his company. But he had bills, like everyone else, and I’m sure he had children that he wanted to send to college and a family that he wanted to take on vacations. He desired to have better finances.

The plumber said he wanted to become a salesman in the company but when he asked management about it they said he wasn’t a good fit for the job. Brian Tracy told him that his future was up to him, but he had to learn how to sell, how to do what the new position required.

The man tried convincing management again to let him try the sales position. Finally they told him that if he was willing to take classes on his own time and study the material, they would give him a try.

A year later Brian saw him again at a seminar. He had been a full-fledged salesman for five months and was earning twice as much as his highest income in the past. He was a happier person and seemed to respect himself more and was very enthusiastic about his job.

Brian Tracy then went on to say “This story is typical of countless stories that have been related to me over the years. In each case, the individual had discovered and developed his other strengths and, subsequently, improved the quality of his or her life. And you can do the same. In fact, this may be one of the most important things you ever do.”

I have read many stories like this. A person has goals and dreams and is willing to put in extra effort to achieve the goals. Some reach their goals quickly, others take a long time. But if a person really believes he/she can do it, works hard, enjoys his work and gets training, great things always happen.

    Whenever I feel unsure about trying a new direction or pursuing my passion, I find some kind of inspiration to spur me on, today this was it. Thank you.

    I actually dislike Brian Tracy, Tony Robbins, Etc. I don’t believe in selling motivation. You gotta give it away to keep it.

    I had a steady job at a small IT company for many years. I took the risk, became a consultant working only on 50% of what I billed and had a 15 years of triple my old salary.

    I just had to take the risk and trust my game.

      wow, that is fantastic, thanks for the success story. I don’t know what “working only on 50% of what I billed” means.

      • 

        if I didn’t work, no pay. If I worked I kept 50%. Luckily we had a high billing rate.

        It meant could I live by my wits. I was a consultant for seven years when one of my clients hired me.

    Very inspiring. I’m ready for a sea change myself.
