‘If you hang around the barbershop long enough… sooner or later your gonna get a haircut’

This post is for anyone out there that has either given up or is on the verge of giving up on a dream

‘Success occurs right after you give up’

Imagine if Eminem gave up rap after he completely made a fool of himself choking on stage at a local rap battle competition.

Imagine if JK Rowling while on welfare, studying and being a single mother had thought it was all to difficult to find the time to create the Harry Potter series.

Imagine if Michael Jordan had decided to quit basketball while locking himself in his bedroom to cry after he was cut from his high school basketball team.

Imagine if Jerry Seinfield never got back up on stage the very next night after failing his first ever performance as a stand up comedian where he choked and was booed and haggled off the stage.

As Denzel Washington said during a speech on failure ‘if you hang around the barbershop long enough….. sooner or later you’re gonna get a haircut’

If you have given up/thinking of giving up, I strongly, strongly suggest you watch this first. By far one of the most motivational stories I have ever heard.

What good is a dream if you don’t make it come true?

    Got a question, mate. (I live in Melbourne, nice to find a fellow Victor Pride fan) Why are you promoting other people’s products? Shouldn’t you have a flagship product like Victor and his books? More visits and profits to you.

    Second, you’ve got a good motivational blog, but a lot of this stuff can be found in other people’s work. Motivation is a great business, but it’s saturated – have you thought about pursuing a niche elsewhere? I think motivation should be something you do on top of another kind of product or service – that way you draw more readers.

    Look at Victor – he has a fitness book on top of 30 days of discipline. I doubt “30 days” would have been enough to grow his website. Also, the white background makes your blog look a little plain. I would suggest pink for your site’s name, but that may come off as fruity. You’ll draw more readers in with a more killer look. The font is also too simple looking – at this stage your writing (though good) looks kiddish with that font (Arial, I presume?).

    I don’t have to write all this, but you’re the first Aussie I’ve encountered with a blog like this. Would be cool to see it grow.

    Cheers, Ken.
