Overcome Fear:Success

In 1962, four young musicians auditioned for Decca Recording company.  The executives were not impressed. While turning down this group of musicians, one executive said, “We don’t like their sound. Groups of guitars are on the way out.” The group was The Beatles.

When Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876, it did not ring off the hook with calls from potential backers.  After making a demonstration call, President Rutherford Hayes said, “That’s an amazing invention, but who would ever want to use one of them?”

In 1954, Jimmy Denny, manager of the Grand Ole Opry fired a singer after one performance. He told him, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere son.  You ought to go back to drivin’ a truck.” One of the most popular singers ever, Elvis Presley.

Self-limiting beliefs can be imposed upon us by others…and usually are. Character isn’t usually an easily developed asset.  Only through experiences of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, vision cleared, ambition inspired, and success achieved.  We gain strength, experience, and confidence when we face those “fears” that otherwise have us frozen in place.  Do the thing you think you can’t do.  Steel is hardened and perfected in the hottest furnace.
