OK! HOW OFTEN HAVE YOU ASKED YOURSELF THIS QUESTION IN YOUR LIFE:
Entrepreneurs will start a restaurant in the same location where five other restaurants have gone out of business; those other guys may not have succeeded — but why not me?
Entrepreneurs will start a software company with nothing but an idea; sure, the competition has deep pockets and a huge market share — but why not me? Hard-working professionals will look at all the people with more experience, more education, and better networks and think, "Okay. Fine. But why not me?"
Successful people don't assume other successful people possess special talents or some gift from the gods. They look at successful people and think, "That's awesome. Why not me?"
By asking that question, they embrace belief and ignore self-doubt. They put aside any feelings that they might not be smart enough, or experienced enough, or adaptable enough.
At some point every successful person looks in the mirror and says, "Sure, lots of other people don't succeed ..." and then turns the question into a bold statement, "But why not me," because more than anything, they believe in themselves.
* The one question every successful person asks:
* WHY NOT ME ?
