Tuesday Tips & Tricks | Going After Your Dreams

by Zach & Jody on October 30, 2012, posted in Uncategorized

Welcome to the latest addition of Tuesday Tips & Tricks! We want to highlight one of the latest business books that we recently finished (thanks to the #15minutechallenge – join us in this!) and how you can take that and apply it to what you are doing!

We want to feature today The Go-Getter by Peter B. Kyne.

 

Excerpt from the back cover:

Do you want to be the one who lands the job?

Who gets the promotion?

Whose dream becomes a reality?

STOP WANTING. START WINNING

Dave Ramsey says, “No Matter how many times they fall or fail, go-getters get back up and keep moving towards their goals” No wonder Dave gives this book to every person on his team!’

This book was a quick read and quite a few different lessons are in this story. The one I want to highlight today is NEVER GIVE UP! One of the characters in this short story is given a task and he runs into every possible obstacle possible. What’s amazing about what he does is he doesn’t stop. He doesn’t abandon his task. Because of that he WINS! His dreams and goals are accomplished!

How many times do you feel like giving up?

How many times has someone told you that your dreams are impossible?

How many times have you gotten the door shut in your face?

How many times has someone told you, “Your prices are too high. You’re not worth it.”?

How many times __________________ (you fill in the blank)…

There are stories after stories of musicians, restaurateurs, businessmen & women, politians that faced all obstacles and never gave up. “Being a go-getting means, at its heart, that you go after things with dogged persistence – and that you never, never, never, never quit.”

You can do this. Don’t give up. Don’t quit. Right beyond this last obstacle, or door slammed in your face may be your success!
