Recently, I read a beautiful eye-opening story, which I think pretty well shows the dark side of people…
Until I bumped into this story, I thought everything is fine in my life. But, after I read it, I found out, I have to change something. I found out, me and many of my friends do this mistake, which literally keeps us from achieving our goals.
I am curious…Will you find yourself doing the same mistake? In this article, I want to share this story with you.
Excellent, successful pianist once played for a large group of women.
Later, some of them went for a coffee with her and one of the women’s said to this pianist…
… “I would give anything to know how to play like you.”
While the pianist was drinking her coffee said, “Oh, you certainly wouldn´t.”
The group suddenly become quite, the cups of coffee stopped on their way from the plate and the woman little embarrassedly answered:
“Yeah, I really would give anything to know how to perform like you.”
The pianist continued to drink coffee and said “Definitely not,” she repeated. If that’s true, you could be as good as I, maybe even better.
Then she smiled and said:
“Please understand, I’m not criticizing you, just telling you that when you told me you would give anything to play as I did, you did not mean it seriously.”
After another a moment of pure silence, the woman realized, pianist, is right…
Anyone would be glad to have her well-developed skills now, but paying the price of 20 years of hard work – that´s a whole different story…
People always say – “I’d give anything.” But the fact remains that simply ISN´T TRUE.
They gave very little, often nothing, for things they claim means so much for them.
If you´d look to every possible field, there are people who made it even when they weren´t as talented as people who failed…
So, if you say you would get anything to play basketball like Lebron James, my advice to you is…Stop talking about it and start working on it.
If you say, you´d like to sing like Lady Gaga, my advice to you is…Stop talking about it and start working on it.
Recently I read an article about her. She said, in school, her classmates had a closed group created for one reason – making fun of her. Of course, it was difficult, but she was committed to doing whatever it takes to prove them wrong. And I think, she did a great job doing it..:)
So, if you next time say to someone, “I would give anything to do XXX like you” – make sure it´s not just a phrase, but true.
But, what´s crucial, is to choose your dream wisely…
To do so, check out the strategy that helps you always make the right decision.
Because, I can say I want to become the best singer in the world, but if you´d hear me sing, you know it´s not possible…
I know, the pursuing of your goals can be terrified for you, especially if you don´t know how to do it…
That´s why I created a 4-day FREE training for you, to give you a step-by-step system for turning your dream into reality. You can join the training in the form below.
In a conclusion:
Don´t lie to yourself, if you say you want something so bad, make sure you do anything you can for it.
Because…Why not get what you’re dreaming about? Each of us has time and opportunity.
If we say we do not, we probably deceive ourselves.
With every effort and perseverance, everyone can be great at something.
