Beating the Odds

Hurricane Sandy and Motivation

If you have ever doubted your power, just look what happened in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

People lived without heat, power, hot water and light for a week or longer. Some waited in gas lines for five hours. Others slept in their cars.

EvenNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and President Obama did what some thought impossible, namely, work across party lines for the common good.

Why is this important? It shows that you can do the difficult thing. You may not always feel like doing it, but you can when you have to.

You have incredible power just waiting to be tapped. Why wait until a hurricane? You can study even if you don’t feel like studying. You can practice when you don’t feel like it.

All you must do is separate your actions from your feelings. You can do things even if you don’t feel like it. Don’t wait for a storm to knock down your house. Start building a strong one now.
