Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee
Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake

Rabindranath Tagore

Where mind is without fear

Rabindranath Tagore

King had a boulder placed on a roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the king’s wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by and simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did anything about getting the stone out of the way.

Then a peasant came along carrying a load of vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the stone to the side of the road. After much pushing and straining, he finally succeeded. After the peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed a purse lying in the road where the boulder had been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note from the King indicating that the gold was for the person who removed the boulder from the roadway.

The peasant learned what many of us never understand! Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve our condition.

Its only you who can remove the obstacles from your path if you want to succeed in life.

COMPETE, DON’T COMPARE
The greatest freestyle swimmer of all time, Janet Evans, owns 45 National Titles, four gold medals and three world records. Just before the race for Olympic qualification on the Atlanta Team her coach, Mark Schubert, pulled her aside. Coach Schubert said to her, “Don’t forget who you are.”

At the U.S. Olympic Trials, Evans was surrounded by younger and perhaps hungrier swimmers. One said she thought the 24-year-old Evans was scared of the other competition. So as Evans walked to the starting blocks for the 400-meter freestyle, her coach took just a moment to remind his swimmer of her credentials. Don’t forget who you are – compete, but don’t compare!

Janet Evans went out and made her third Olympic team, winning the 400-meter freestyle in splendid fashion. Janet Evans, with Coach Schubert’s help, learned that winning means excelling at being you.

The former Cleveland Browns’ All-Pro, Bill Glass, often says to his audiences, “Be yourself, but learn to be your best self. Don’t use being yourself as an excuse for laziness or mediocrity. Be what you ought to be. Stretch toward what you are created to be and in the stretching, you’re certain to become a better and more effective person.”

Each of us measures success differently. However, we can all agree that success today isn’t measured by what we are. It’s measured by what we are, compared to what we could be. In other words, measure your individual success in selling by comparing it to your real potential – your best self.

Another fresh new year is here …
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!

This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest …
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!

William Arthur Ward, 1921-1994
American Author and Poet

For flowers that bloom about our feet, For tender grass so fresh and sweet, For the song of bird and hum of bee, For all things fair we hear or see, Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

For blue of stream and blue of sky, For pleasant shade of branches high, For fragrant air and cooling breeze, For beauty of the blooming trees, Father in heaven we thank Thee.

For this new morning with its light, For rest and shelter of the night, For health and food, for love and friends, For everything Thy goodness sends, Father in heaven, we thank Thee.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882

American Essayist, Lecturer and Poet
