“One of the keys to success is CONFIDENCE.”
Here’s a great story that shows the power of CONFIDENCE…
Once upon a time, there was a business executive who was deeply in debt and could see no way out. Creditors were closing in on him. Suppliers were demanding payment.
To manage his stress, the businessman decided to take a walk at the local park. When he couldn’t walk anymore, he sat on the park bench, head in hands, wondering if anything could save his company from bankruptcy.
Suddenly an old man appeared before him. “I can see that something is troubling you,” he said. After listening to the executive’s woes, the old man said, “I believe I can help you.”
He asked the man his name, wrote out a check, and pushed it into his hand saying,
“Take this money, meet me here exactly one year from today, and you can pay me back at that time.” Then he turned and disappeared as quickly as he had come.
The business executive saw in his hand a check for $500,000, signed by John D. Rockefeller, then one of the richest men in the world!
“I can erase my money worries in an instant!” he realized. But instead, the businessman decided to put the uncashed check in his safe. Just knowing it was there gave him the strength to work out a way to save his business.
With renewed optimism, he negotiated better deals and extended terms of payment. He closed several big sales. Within a few months, he was out of debt and making money once again.
Exactly one year later, he returned to the park with the uncashed check. At the agreed-upon time, the old man appeared. But just as the businessman was about to hand back the check and share his success story, a nurse came running up and grabbed the old man.
“I’m so glad I caught him!” she cried. “I hope he hasn’t been bothering you. He’s always escaping from the rest home and telling people he’s John D. Rockefeller.” And she led the old man away by the arm.
The astonished businessman just stood there, stunned. All year long he’d been wheeling and dealing, buying and selling, convinced he had half a million dollars behind him.
Suddenly, he realized that it wasn’t the money, real or imagined that had turned his life around. It was his newfound Self-esteem and Self-confidence that gave him the power to transform his life and his business.
He now believes that he can achieve anything he pursues. This newfound belief empowered him to achieve success, joy and happiness!
