Be Realistic... Not Me

I just want to write a blog post about being realistic. I don't know where exactly I read this advice. If I'm not mistaken, I got it from a book "The 4-Hour Workweek" by Timothy Ferriss.

According to him, if we settle our mind being realistic, you will end up in a situation that average (mostly) people took. Why I am saying this is because you let normal things and accepted by people be your goal or destination. In other words, you let your destiny be controlled by the norms of people.

Think about it: being unrealistic is becoming different. You act against the odds. You challenge the accepted beliefs. Successful people go beyond their limits. They do great things which other people thought impossible. Remember the owner of KFC's chicken recipe, Harland Sanders. At age 65, he decided to introduce his recipe to different chicken restaurant around America. Until on his 1,100 times, someone believed in him. That's where KFC started and became famous up to now. Imagine, if he gave up immediately (perhaps on a 10th try), then this food chain was not existed. Maybe you're wondering if this is a true story, yes it is (here is the link).

Most of the people after experiencing 3 to 4 failures in life, tend to give up and surrender. I don't want you to do that. If you think your product is awesome and you're sure that people can benefit from it, then no matter what circumstances are, you must never give up. Promote as if your life depends on it and assume it’s your last day on earth. There's no hard rock when it is continuously sprinkled by water on the surface. In time, that rock will eventually get cracks and cut in half.

If you felt that today, your efforts haven't been paid off, then you are halfway to success. Don't call it a quit but rather change your approach until you reach it.

That's it! When you have a calling to do something, be different. Being realistic will yield ordinary and common result but being unrealistic awaits extraordinary outcome and surprises.

I hope you like it. Feel free to share it with your friends. Thank you.

Avoid Sticking To Unproductive People

Actually, this stuff I am about to share can be good or bad. It depends on where you get influence from.
