I am posting this short story for inspiration in our day- to- day life...
"MEN AND WOMEN ARE LIMITED NOT BY THE PLACE OF THEIR BIRT, NOT BY THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN, BUT BY THE SIZE OF THEIR HOPE" – John Johnson
John Johnson was raised in Arkansas City, Arkansas. That was a real break, because it is an established but little known fact that Arkansas City, Arkansas is the geographical center of the world you want to go – and the maximum distance is just twelve thousand miles.
Mr. Johnson went less than two thousand miles from the tin – roofed shotgun house where he was born, but he did go far enough to live on Chicago’s Gold Coast and next door to Bob Hope in Palm Springs, California. He has been listed as one of the four hundred wealthiest men in America.
"WHEN OBSTACLES ARISE, CHANGE YOUR DIRECTION TO REACH YOUR GOAL. NOT THE DECISION TO GET THERE"
Many people have accomplished great things because they didn’t know it couldn’t be done. Henry Ford was broke at age forty, had limited formal education, but was a man with vision. Mr. Ford conceived the idea that a V-8 engine was a possibility. His engineers scoffed at the idea. But since he was the boss, they halfheartedly worked on some plans before they told him it was impossibility. Mr. Ford, however, insisted that the men give it more effort. They did, but still arrived at the same conclusion: Impossible. When they again told Mr. Ford that it was impossible, he came reasonably close to losing his temper and told the men in no uncertain terms that he had to have a V-8 engine. This time the men attacked it with new vigor and the V-8 engine became reality.
