Mario Gavranovic WM 2018 Trikot

In a past newsletter Mario Gavranovic WM 2018 Trikot , Howard Ruff described how the crocodile attack that claimed the most human lives happened on February 19, 1945 when part of the Imperial Japanese Army unit guarding a stronghold on the Burmese island of Ramree was outmaneuvered by a British naval force. The Japanese soldiers were forced to cross 10 miles of mangrove swamps to rejoin a larger battalion of the Japanese infantry. The swamps were home to thousands of 15-ft saltwater crocodiles. By the next morning, only 20 of the original 1,000 Japanese soldiers had survived.

After reading this story, I was dumb founded. And I began wondering about the crocodile infested mangrove swamps that exist in our daily lives. In order to achieve the success we're after in our lives Admir Mehmedi WM 2018 Trikot , what are the crocodile like challenges we must equip ourselves to overcome?

I believe the ugliest and the baddest of the crocodiles are the crocodiles that lurk in our own minds. Specifically, they are the self limiting beliefs and other thoughts that don't serve us, but which we insist on hanging onto. I'm willing to bet that each of us has thousands of self limiting beliefs that we buy into every day. Often without even realizing that's what we are doing.

What do you suppose it takes to successfully achieve your dreams? What do you suppose it took for those 20 surviving soldiers to avoid being eaten and make their way to the other side?

To overcome the crocodiles, it's necessary to start from the end. Be larger than yourself in terms of vision and goals, trust in the magic of your belief Denis Zakaria WM 2018 Trikot , and then follow-through with unwavering persistence. There is a magical moment when you finally really, really believe in what is possible for yourself and what you are able to achieve - well beyond what you may have previously considered.

This is often what you experience when you have breakthrough success in a new venture (be it a home business, a new project, venture or otherwise). You may have started out doing what you knew you had to do because you see an opportunity that is so attractive and because there is a process that makes logical sense to you.

But the tipping point comes when as the results begin manifesting, you are finally able to believe completely in what you can do and those lingering doubts vanish. You can see the progress you are making towards your goals and you create a vision larger than yourself that you believe unequivocally - and that is when everything explodes exponentially.

Imagine how impenetrable those soldiers' belief in their ability to cross the swamps must have been and the degree of doubt they had to overcome in order for them to survive. Consider the spectacle of the feeding frenzy amongst the crocodiles and how it must have looked and sounded. The degree of fear and self limiting beliefs each soldier had to overcome is astounding. And consider the degree of commitment and follow-through that was absolutely necessary to make it to the other side. Everything relied upon instant decisions and follow-through if they were to survive. There was no room for hesitation.

Few of the soldiers survived the crossing of the mangroves. Similarly Gelson Fernandes WM 2018 Trikot , few people ever survive the crossing of the crocodile swamps in their minds and so fail to live out their dreams. But for those that do, it is due to their focus and vision, the absolute belief in their vision that they carry, and their unfailing follow-through These are the basic ingredients that are available to each of us. And they can be used to determine the thoughts we choose, the beliefs we foster Blerim Dzemaili WM 2018 Trikot , and the actions we take which will ultimately create the path to our own success.

Opportunities abound everywhere. There are tremendous opportunities and enormous waves of momentum that are out there to be ridden. It is our own vision, belief and follow-through that will determine which of us will get there. Yet, in order to catch a wave, each of us needs to be prepared to swim out to to meet it.

I have absolutely no doubt that any of us can navigate the swamps in our mind and achieve anything we choose to achieve. If 20 Japanese soldiers were able to cross 10 miles of mangrove swamps and overcome thousands of crocodiles, while 980 comrades were eaten Steven Zuber WM 2018 Trikot , then it should be comparatively easy for the rest of us.

You can achieve anything, without limits, with the for those limits you impose upon yourself.

By surrounding yourself with like minded people who hold th same depth of belief and vision as you have, you will quickly be able to leverage the strength and support of an entire team. So never, ever find reason to put limits upon yourself.

So start swimming and put those self limiting beliefs behind you!
