A Creative Man Is Motivated By The Desire To Achieve …..

….Not By The Desire To Beat Others!

This is a quote by Ayn Rand, which just about sums up most online business entrepreneurs and owners.

And then another quote by Robert Kennedy, at the time the U.S. were preparing to land a man on the moon, highlights why the sky is not the limit: “Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly”.

A Creative Man Is Motivated By The Desire To Achieve

(Justin Luebke)

We at IM4U think that your personal achievements are under-rated, and yet it’s your achievements that should help fire your appetite to go forth and achieve more!

Building an online business, whether it’s as an affiliate marketer, an e-commerce store owner, or anything that provides a worthwhile service to the outside world is one of the most creative things you can build today.

Yet, the encouragement to keep going when things don’t work out, or the heartbreak you experience when you get let down badly are often lacking and soul-destroying.

So what keeps you going?

Well, “the desire to achieve” must be rock solid. And to build that strong bond of solidity, you need to create from within a strong bond of solidarity.

So as a gentle reminder of what you have achieved and what you are achieving, here’s a great poem (author unknown) about the humble oyster.

There once was an oyster whose story I tell,
who found that some sand had got into his shell.

It was only a grain, but it gave him great pain,
for oysters have feelings although they’re so plain.

Now, did he berate the harsh workings of fate
that brought him to such a deplorable state?

Did he curse at the government, cry for election,
and claim that the sea should have given him protection?

No – he said to himself as he lay on a shell,
since I cannot remove it I shall try to improve it.

Now the years have rolled around, as the years always do.
and he came to his ultimate destiny, a stew.

And the small grain of sand that had bothered him so,
was a beautiful pearl all richly aglow.

Now the tale has a moral, for isn’t it grand-
what an oyster can do with a morsel of sand?

What couldn’t we do if we’d only begin,
with some of the things that get under our skin?
So, keep going on your amazing journey.

You have achieved already. Your fellow business owners know what you’ve achieved even though you’ve never met them.

But the most important person on this planet who knows you’re an achiever is…..YOU!

Keep creating…..and you will achieve (even more)!
