For those of you who are facing challenges or having a hard time in your
life now, I like to
share with you an article "Doing the Remarkable" by Jim Rohn, one of
the greatest motivational speaker of all time. Here it goes:
"When it comes to meeting and conquering the negativity in your life, here is a key
question: what can you do, starting today, that will make a difference? What can you do
during economic chaos? What can you do when everything has gone wrong? What can you do
when you've run out of money, when you don't feel well and it's all gone sour? What can
Let me give you the broad answer first. You can do the most remarkable things, no matter
what happens. People can do incredible things, unbelievable things, despite the most impossible
or disastrous circumstances.
Here is why humans can do remarkable things: because they are remarkable. Humans are
different than any other creation. When a dog starts with weeds, he winds up with weeds.
And the reason is because he's a dog. But that's not true with human beings. Humans can
turn weeds into gardens.
Humans can turn nothing into something, pennies into fortune, and disaster into success.
And the reason they can do such remarkable things is because they are remarkable. Try
reaching down inside of yourself; you'll come up with some more of those remarkable human
gifts. They're there, waiting to be discovered and employed.
With those gifts, you can change anything for yourself that you wish to change. And I
challenge you to do that because you can change. If you don't like how something is going
for you, change it. If something isn't enough, change it. If something doesn't suit you;
change it. If something doesn't please you, change it. You don't ever have to be the same
after today. If you don't like your present address change it - you're not a tree!
If there is one thing to get excited about, it's your ability to make yourself do the
necessary things, to get a desired result, to turn the negative into success. That's
