|I haven't been here long, but I know how to be successful!|
This isn't one of those get rich quick kinds of secrets to success. I'm not going to tell ya how to make a million dollars in real estate. I'm not going to letcha in on any big investment tip. I'm fourteen months old. I don't need a million dollars, and I don't need to invest anything. (But if I were you, I'd invest in either Crest or Colgate, because I'm gettin' some serious toothage, Friends, and I love to brush my teeth with my banana brush!)
What I want to letcha in on is how to be successful, for real, independent of money, because money comes and goes.
I know I haven't been here for very long, I know. But I've learned that in order to be successful, you hafta take your work very seriously. You know what I mean? Do what ever it is you do very well. For instance, my work is helping to raise awareness of the plight of Little Giraffes. I take that work very seriously!
|Take your work seriously, but not yourself seriously!|
But you can't take yourself seriously, because when you take your self seriously, when you have setbacks, it's easier to let them defeat you. Don't be defeated, Friends! Don't let outside things make you feel like you've failed, Big People!
We all have setbacks. I have setbacks! As you may know, I've recently begun walking. Well, that's a big set forward, but sometimes, I fall right on my butt. Yes, I do. My feet come right out from under me, and down on the ol' dupah I go. But hey, you know what? I'm not going to let falling on my bottom define me. I just get right up, give myself a little shake, and take right back off! And what if people see me fall down? Exactly. What if they do?
It's not the falling down that'll getcha, Big People. It's if ya stay down.
So that's my big secret to success, Friends. Take your work seriously, but don't take yourself seriously! Dare to be a little silly. Seriously. I triple-dog-dare ya! Hahahahahaha!
