MINUTE WITH MAXWELL
TODAY’S STATEMENT OF STRENGTH
“Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve, there is a series of obstacles,
and the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles.” -Brian Tracy
Hi, I'm glad you're with us today on Minute with Maxwell, my name is John. And we're giving you, again, statements of strength to encourage you during this difficult time. Brian Tracy has a great statement I want share with you. He said, ‘Between you and every goal that you wish to achieve,’ between you and the goal, '…is a series of obstacles. And the bigger the goal, the bigger the obstacles.’ That's a fact. In fact, I've taught the fact that I've never seen an opportunity without a problem in front of it. You know, opportunity is the middle of problems and hardships and difficulties. Brian Tracy knows that, I know that. I want you to experience and know that, also.
I was doing a conference several years ago, a leadership conference. About 2,000 people were there. We were having a great day. Laughter, learning, just a lot of magic in the air. I was signing books for the last session before the conference was going to close. A young man came up to me and he said, ‘I've been watching you all day. I've been watching the crowd. It's electric around here.’ He said, ‘I've decided that I want do what you do.’ And I said, ‘Well, that's great. I like that; good for you.’ I said, ‘I have a question for you.’ I said, ‘Would you like to do what I did, so you can do what I do?’ You see, the problem isn't doing, the problem is diding. You see, there are a lot of people, they want to get to the top but they don't want to work to the top. They don't want to pay the price to get to the top. And that's what Brian Tracy is teaching us in this statement of strength. That before you get to the opportunity, you've got the problems. It's okay; go knock those problems down. There's a door of opportunity waiting for you right now.
Thanks for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
