Accomplishing what people say you couldn't, Motivational Monday Blog Post, Constance Curtis

For those of us that live in Southern California, today was an extra motivated Monday.. it had to be right?! How else do you get anything done with its rainy and cold outside? The majority of us probably wanted to snuggle on the couch with an oversized blanket and hot cup of hot chocolate! Was that you?? Well that was me ☺ But we didn’t… we kept on working! And all to achieve a dream…

Last Friday I posted the quote “The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.” This got me thinking of all the great leaders of the past who have felt this pleasure!! And I don’t mean those that have felt the pleasure in doing something a parent told them they couldn’t or perhaps proving a boss wrong who said it would never work. This quote gets me thinking of leaders such as Columbus when he discovered the unknown world, Copernicus when he discovered multiple worlds, Henry Ford when he dreamed of a horseless carriage, Thomas Edison who dreamed of a lamp operated by electricity and the Wright Brothers who dreamed of a machine that would fly!!!!! Those are the great men who really have had the pleasure in doing something others said they couldn’t! All of these “great achievements was, at first, and for a time, but a dream.” Wow! Makes you feel like you can accomplish anything right?? Well you can. If you have “definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.” “If what you dream of is right, and you believe in it, go ahead and do it! Put your dream across, and never mind what “they” say if you meet with temporary defeat, for “they,” perhaps, do not know that every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success.“

I hope this motivated you to be GREAT!
