The Art of Authentic Success: When Bill Met Melinda

She Wasn't Waiting To Get Picked

○ ○ ○


One of the greatest temptations many artists and people who aren't rich succumb to

is hoping, waiting and/or reaching a saturation point where they believe somebody,

with deep pockets surely will pick them and give them a game-changing big break.

But as Brian Tracy (video further below) affirms: there are no big breaks. More

often than not, it is self-discipline, independence, assiduous work ethic as well

the focus, planning and brilliant execution of goals that either lead directly to

fulfilled dreams or setup meaningful, life changing encounters. Consider for a

moment, the story of how Bill and Melinda Ann French met. She took a

Microsoft job offer, got straight to working hard & six-and-a-half years

later she had advanced through the ranks enough to be noticed by her

future husband. A man who just happened to be the Founder & CEO

of Microsoft. She wasn't waiting to be picked. Melinda Ann French

simply accepted a job at Microsoft because she'd been told career

progression was certain if she worked hard. I see many people

waiting to be picked. And yet, “the great secret of success in

life is for a man to be ready when his opportunity comes”.

Sexually-oriented shortcuts to success in China by both

decent women/Shengnǚ and gold-diggers alike led the

Guangdong government in March 2011 to mandate

that all females in elementary and middle school be

be required to take a new course in “Self-esteem,

Self-confidence, Self-reliance and Self-improve

-ment”. Read the NYT report here. I met a

a giddy, newly married Chinese IBMer at

at McDonald's recently. The couple met

while they were studying in Sydney.

Cultured. Unlike this “lady”. But

regardless how privileged or

well-connected, those who

don't take time to invest

in their development,

may acquire wealth

illicitly, but I've

found, remain

INSECURE

Anatomical kaleidoscopy

Immagini tratte da uno studio di parti anatomiche, elaborate in maniera caleidoscopica. Risultato: non particolarmente esaltante...pur nella sua originalità.
