RON WILL, best book by Orison Swett Marden,
The comon denominator if all great men is talent, is advantage?
an IRON WILL, what is an iron will? The greatest achievements of humanity have been by human will. By refusing to quit.
WHAT IS AN IRON WILL?
Make yourself do what you say you are going to do when you are going to doit regardless you feel like it or not.
Is make yourself do what you know you must do.
To finish completely what you start
To do it in an excellent fashion, the best possible way
To hold all your energies towards one point, to focus massively. To have concentration of effort in one item.
The will to Concentrated Continuous Effort to produce results: The problem with most people is they produce fragmented efforts, a litle here a litle there, disconnected attempts without concentration or continuation don’t produce success.
The will to stick with it long enough to overcome all the obstacles and circunstances.
The will to stick to a thing until you are a MASTER at it.
The will to keep improving, progressing and becoming better no matter how good or not you are.
The will to never admit defeat or poverty. Its your divine right to be all you can be and you want to be.
The will to reach your greatest personal heights in your most challenging situations, when other men would despear
Beethoven was almost totally deaf, full of sorrow when he created his greatest works.
Issac Newton made his greatest discoveries when he didn’t even have the money to pay for his membership at the Royal Society that he belong to, and he wouldn’t allow his friend to excuse his payment at the society.
Michelangelo couldn’t have his brother come to visit him in Bologna because he didn’t even have a bed and he was sleeping in the same bed as his 3 assistants. And he became the greatest master the world has known, a master in 3 different specialities, architect sculptor and painter, artist. Its hard to become a true master at one thing, but what about becoming a master at three?
Become greater than your calling. Your calling is just that, a calling, you have to answer the call and thats where your IRON WILL comes along.
No amount of Genius won unless followed by will power to overcome all the obstacles that came along and defy that genius.
The quality of persistence is never absent from a true successful man.
The truest help you can render someone who is afflicted is not to take away his burden from him but to call out his best energy,his true power that he can manage.
Courageous people with indomitable will are half likely to contract contagious disease.
Success is the child of perseverance. It cannot be coaxed or bribed. You pay the price and its yours. A constant struggle, a ceaseless battle to bring success from inhospitable surroundings, that is the price if all great achievements.
The story of humanity is the story of overcoming all odds, overcoming all obstacles.
Wendell Phillips Dictum:
What is Defeat?
Nothing but education, nothing but the first step to something better.
Muy diferente un fracaso a una derrota. Uno es definitivo el otro es de caracter temporal.
BEAUTIFUL TO REMEMBER:
The power to hold on is a characteristic of all men who have accomplished anything great. They may lack in some other particular, have many weaknesses or eccentricities, but the quality of persistence is NEVER ABSENT from a successful man. No matter what opposition he meets or what discoragement overtakes him, drudgery cannot disgust him, obstacles cannot discourage him, labor cannot weary him; misfortune, sorrow and reverses cannot harm him.
It is not so much brilliance of intellect, or fertility of resources as persistency of effort, constancy of purpose, that makes a great man.
Those who succeed in life are those who keep everlastingly at it, who do not believe themselves geniuses but who know that if they ever accomplish anything they must do it by determined and persistent industry.
A man will never succeed if he lacks this essential
quality of determined persistence.
PERSISTENCE OF PURPOSE IS A POWER. IT CREATES CONFIDENCE IN OTHERS.
Opposing circumstances create strength. Opposition gives us greater power of resistance. IS WHAT you do when adverse circumstances appear.
Henry Ward Beecher,
Do NOT BE AFRAID OF DEFEAT. YOU NEVER ARE SP NEAR TO VICTORY AD WHEN DEFEATED IN A GOOD CAUSE. IT IS DEFEAT THAT MAKES MAN INVINCIBLE.
NO TENGAS MIEDO A LA DERROTA. TU NUNCA ESTAS TAN CERCA DE LA VICTORIA COMO CUANDO HAS SIDO DERROTADO EN UNA BUENA CAUSA. ES LA DERROTA LA QUE HACE A LOS HOMBRES INVENCIBLES.
