"11 Reasons Why You Will Never Succeed" By Gary Vurnum PART-1

REASON #1 – You never act on the information you read in
self-help books.

cartoon of guy really happy throwing a book "Brilliant book! Brilliant ideas! I'm going to act on them!

Reading the latest book by your favourite self-help author
may be interesting, even enlightening, but it is money
wasted if you just read the book, and do nothing else.

It seems that a lot of people want to champion the fact that
they have read “hundreds” of self-help books. For all the
good it has done them, they might as well have read hundreds
of novels!

You can get something out of every self-help book you read
…if you actually do something with the information rather
than just read it. By their very nature, these books should
be treated as life “User Guides” and dipped into at regular
intervals for inspiration.

If you do read a book from cover-to-cover make sure that you
have made notes about those “Ah ha” moments that you should
have had if the book has lived up to it’s promises.

The best thing of all to do is to summarize the book
yourself…by understanding the information on your own
terms you will be more able to focus on what you can apply
in real life.

I’m a great admirer of Gary’s work and have known him for years and love his ‘down-to-Earth’ approach.

A-Z of Positive Thinking Part 8.

Here’s the eighth cartoon in my A-Z of Positive Thinking cartoons. I think this is the last one I drew. The monthly magazine I was doing them folded shortly afterwards – nothing to do with my cartoons!

Cartoon to illustrate – No FREE lunches!

“There ain’t no free lunches in this country. And don’t go spending your whole life commiserating that you got the raw deals. You’ve got to say, ‘I think that if I keep working at this and want it bad enough I can have it.’ It’s called perseverance.”

Lee Iacocca
Businessman and Former CEO of Chrysler

Perseverence - I want it bad enough!

Perseverance. - I want it bad enough!

Here’s a few of my other favourite motivational and inspirational quotes…

The difference between perseverance and obstinacy is that one comes from a strong will, and the other from a strong won’t. – Henry Ward Beecher

Don’t be afraid to give your best to what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves. – Dale Carnegie

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”

Don’t have REGRETS!

Someone just emailed me this quote, thought it was worth sharing…

“You’ll seldom experience regret for anything that you’ve done. It is what you haven’t done that will torment you. The message, therefore, is clear. Do it! Develop an appreciation for the present moment. Seize every second of your life and savor it. Value your present moments. Using them up in any self-defeating ways means you’ve lost them forever.”

Wayne Dyer
Author and Speaker
