Message # 132 Don’t Try Your Best

This message is especially dedicated to the great Eric Kutner.

I don’t believe in trying your best.

I believe in…

Doing whatever it takes!

There was once a young boy. He was smart, but not exceptionally intelligent. Well, the day came when he had to decide where he wanted to go to college. He thought and thought and finally decided he wanted to go to Yale.

Everyone he told either laughed in his face or flat out said, “You will never get into Yale.”

So a little dejected, the boy, still truly wanting to go to Yale, began thinking…

The story ends with the boy actually getting into Yale.

How did he do it???

Simple, he wrote a book called, “How I Got Into Yale” and Yale thought is was so creative that they accepted him.

There are many lessons to be learned in this story.

1. Don’t try your best, do whatever it takes.

2. Don’t worry too much about what people say and think; what ultimately matters is what you say and think to yourself.

3. Think outside the box, and you will stand out from the crowd.

“All great successes begin in the mind.”
