Beating the Odds

Lessons from Elvis

Elvis Presley would have been 75 years old today.

His life contains lessons for everyone. For instance, when he was 11 years old, he wanted a bicycle. But his family couldn’t afford one.

His mom talked him into accepting a guitar instead. Within a couple of years, he was singing and playing the guitar at school.

Who knows what might have happened if he had gotten the bike instead of the guitar?

It’s the same way for everyone, in all areas of their life. One door closes, another opens, and life is always what you make of it.

In fact, all of life is a contest between you and your circumstances. Will you be bigger than your circumstances or the other way around?

Elvis was born dirt-poor and died in a mansion. In between he entertained millions by singing .. and playing the guitar.
