For those not really sure what a miracle is here is the definition in Webster’s Dictionary “An extremely outstanding or unusual event, thing, or accomplishment.”
There are story after story of people who have been successful in their lives and being persistent seems to be one of the key elements why they achieved the goals they set out to accomplish.
Many highest achievers did create a miracle in their lives by accomplishing some pretty amazing things because of being persistent. Even discouraging remarks by other people didn’t seem to dampen their enthusiasm to reach the goals they were determined to reach.
Here are some stories of people who did create a miracle in their life by being persistent and becoming very famous:
The most famous of all stories was the story of Thomas Edison. When he was ask by a young reporter how it felt to fail so many times. He said, “I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000-step process”
In 1962, four nervous young musicians played their first record audition for the executives of the Decca Recording Company. The executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, “We don’t like their sound. Groups of guitars are on their way out” (Did you ever hear of “The Beatles?”)
In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry, fired a singer after one performance. He told him, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere…son. You ought to go back to driving a truck” (Elvis Presley, as you know, became the most popular singer in America)
When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not ring off the hook with calls from potential backers. After making a demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said, “That’s an amazing invention, but who would ever want to use one of them?”
I don’t know if I’ll create a miracle in my life but I am working on it every day. I never give up on what I intend to happen in my life because I want to leave some kind of legacy for others to follow.
I feel pretty confident that some of the things I accomplished in my life might have been unusual for some people but I guess I never thought of it as being a miracle. While it was quite an accomplishment to change a career at the age of 42 years I just decided my life was going the way I wanted it to go and wanted to be happier about life.
Being associated with the family business for almost 20 years was no longer a career I wanted to continue doing. The stress involved in being it was the biggest reason for me to leave and pursue another career.
Do you think being persistent might be worth the effort to help you create a miracle in your life now? Only you can make that choice. Want some help? Read my ebook “How to Enjoy Life More, Love Your Job and Live Happier Ever After”
