The creator gathered together all of creation and potential and said, “I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it. It is the realization that... they create their own reality.”
The eagle said, “Give it to me I will take it to the moon”
The Creator said, “No. One day they will go there and find it.”
The salmon said, “I will take it to the bottom of the ocean.”
“No they will go there too.”
The buffalo said, “I will bury it on the great plains.”
The Creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.”
Then the Grandmother mole, who lives in the breast of Mother Earth, and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said, “Put it inside them.”
And the Creator said, “It is done.”
The whole creativity, innovation and potential are within human being and still we do not recognize the same. Why some people are very successful. One marketing director of training company visited me last week. She was referring her owner who is also a transformational and motivational speaker. He is only 12th, but he transformed himself that he is one of the great speakers. There are so many people around us and sometimes we wonder how and why they are successful and great.
In another example, one of the friends was not confident to take higher role and the reason was fear to fail. He is still struggling to get good opportunities.
First things first we should believe on ourselves. Why the people are successful? They are successful because their strong and fundamental belief on themselves.
We should ask certain questions ourselves time to time. Just challenge your assumption on following:
Are we aware about our potential? Most of the people are unaware about their potential and what they have. Get some time out from your busy schedule and get the feedback from your colleagues, friends and family members. Use the methodology of appreciative enquiry. Identify your achievement and just look back what behaviours have you exhibited to achieve these achievements. Make a list of these strength and behaviours and work out your plan to develop further.
Are we confident about ourselves? Fear drives you away from the success. Some people have the fear of failure but there are people who have fear to the success; fear of being successful. You should not be worry about the fear. Fear is the natural phenomenon. But the question is how you overcome the fear. We should be confident about ourselves to overcome the fear. When I go on the stage for the presentation, my palms still get wet, but within a second I overcome the fear.
If you answer these two fundamental questions, it will easy to prepare for taking a take off towards successful life.
