Henry Ford said – “If you think you can, you can; if you think you can’t, you can’t; both ways, you are absolutely right!”

The general narrative of life goes like this -

  • The world is stacked against us.
  • Unless we are born into wealth, the chances of failure outweigh the chances of success.
  • In any given field, there is a steep pyramid. and only a minority of people are able to climb to the top. In sports, the odds are even worse. Out of all the players and teams, there’s only one winner.
  • Given all this, even we want to achieve something, we don’t believe we can do it, because there are too many obstacles, too many push-backs.

We think we can’t, so we can’t. We don’t. We dare not. So, we settle for less.

This narrative is WRONG.

We are surrounded by people who have broken their shackles and achieved amazing successes.

They have started from nothing, and have built fantastic careers, businesses and wealth.

Let’s check out a few of these extraordinary people:

    • Brought up in rural poverty.
    • Years of physical and emotional abuse.
    • Learned her passion for communication.
    • Became a local TV star, joined a regional network and then a national network.
    • Today, she dominates mainstream media.
      “Create the highest, grandest vision possible for your life, because you become what you believe."
  2. JACK MA:
    • Started as a tourist guide
    • Struggled through college
    • Applied for 30 jobs and rejected every time
    • Realized the power of the internet when he was 30
    • Set up Ali Baba in 1999
    • Is currently seen as the most successful man in China
      “If you don’t give up, you still have a chance. Giving up is the greatest failure.”
    • Day dreamer, bad student, was tested time and again
    • Introverted and bookish. Bullied continuously
    • Parents divorced when he was 10
    • Learnt computer programming by himself; started building and selling games
    • Built Zip2, Paypal, Tesla and SpaceX
      "When something is important enough, do it even if the odds are not in your favor."

Three things:

  • They believed in themselves,
  • They decided their purpose, and
  • They gave it everything they had.

Self Belief + Purpose + Performance = Success

We have to start with thinking we CAN.

Then, we have to know what we WANT.

Finally, we do whatever it takes to WIN.

In this module, we are going to learn the approaches and tools that we need to win.
