A MOTIVATION STORY TO SUCCEED
If you sincerely want something, the potential to bring it
into reality already exists within you — and in those with
whom you can connect.
I call this potential the “Acorn”. It is the seed that has the
potential to one day grow into a magnificent oak tree. The
mighty oak sleeps within you right now. Water this acorn.
Nurture it. One day, it will sprout. Slowly, that tiny seedling
will get bigger and bigger!
It took me quite a while to grow my own oak tree, to fully
realise my potential for achieving success and excellence in
When I was young, I was pretty much average. In my high
school class of 430 students, I graduated somewhere around
175th. In athletics I was average as well. The only team I
joined was the swimming team, and I dropped out of that
before the season was fully underway.
Socially, I was again average. I had several good friends and
was generally accepted by others in all the varied groups at
school. But nobody encouraged me to volunteer for student
leadership or nominated me for key roles in the school. In
college, my pattern continued, but declined. I earned below
average grades for two years in a row. Finally, I dropped out.
Somewhere along the way, however, my mindset changed.
I began to realise that I could do significant things. I realised
that if I really tried, I could actually be “somebody”. That was
when I learned how to study and how to cultivate the self discipline I needed in order to take control of my own life.
Today, I am living my dream. I have been the owner of
my industry association. I have written some books, two of
which became bestsellers. And I am full satisfied with my work.
I am not telling you this to impress you. I am telling you
this so that you know that I know what I am talking about.
Everything is up to you and the way of your thinking.
The above thoughts are of an international writer.

Grab the opportunity, Don’t let it go.
