|Fulfillment@Work: INSPIRATION OF THE WEEK
April 29, 2001
Welcome to the Fulfillment@Work Newsletter
Published by Joel Garfinkle, Dream Job Coaching
"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach."
~ Ayn Rand, Russian-American Novelist from her book Atlas Shrugged.
Inspiration of the Week
Achievers like those that Ayn Rand describes above are resolute in their goals and absolutely driven by determination. So how can we measure when we are determined enough? Easy. When we achieve what we set out to do, regardless of the obstacles, like these deeply determined individuals:
>>> Dr. Seuss' first children's book was rejected by 23 different publishers before the 24th publisher sold six million copies.
>>> During it's first year of business, the Coca-Cola company sold only 400 Cokes.
>>> Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.
>>> Avalanches, dehydration, hypothermia and mental and physical fatigue caused by a lack of oxygen at 29,000 stood between James Whitaker, the first American to reach the summit of Mount Everest, and the top of the world's highest mountain.
You may never, become a famous athlete, invent a new product, author a best selling book or look down from the world's highest, mountain peak-but whatever your dreams are, your willingness to "keep on keeping on" will determine your measure of success.
