'Impossible' is in the Mind!

Posted by: Kagunda

Tagged in: Success

 

I find it interesting how easily one tends to dismiss a new thing or challenge. Take my son for example whom I told to walk home from church the other day and he said it was impossible. He imagined the route we take when driving and concluded it was too far. Well, the route we take is about three-and-a-half kilometers. Now, that is not such a long distance for a 13-year old.

"There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure”. ~Colin Powell

 

Hansi Cronje. Does the name ring a bell? Who was this man, Hansi? I was sitting in a hotel room recently when inadvertently I caught this man’s name on the TV and it took my interest… It was a movie about the man and I ended up learning quite a bit about the man. It is a very illustrative movie produced by Hansi’s brother Frans to show the real Hansi.

"Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.” – Thomas Edison

 

He was not a very bright student at school. He was mildly dyslexic. Reading and writing were a struggle. He was often caned for failing exams. But in spite of it, or perhaps because of it, he has become one of the most successful men globally. Maybe not being gifted academically led him to pay attention to other things, or maybe it gave him the determination to work harder in other things. What is clear is that it was not getting ‘A’s in school that has placed Richard Branson where he is today.

"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. – Albert Einstein

 

In 2005, he was retired from an organization he was working with and as he was pondering what to do with his severance package of Kes 250,000, a friend took him to a place near one of the public universities. The friend introduced him to someone who was selling a plot there for Kes 250,000 and he said it was a good buy. He made a lot of noise about throwing money in the bush as the place was not built up and it held no hope of development in the short term. But unfortunately for him, he was married! And because wives tend to have a sixth sense, she insisted on him buying it anyway since there was no other immediate use for the funds.
