Winning The Prize


 Posted 10 months ago More by Agnes C.

Winning The Prize We all want to win the prize. I read an article this morning on the Internet related to winners of television game shows. One statement stood out among all the other information shared. It was referring to the contestant Olmstead who in 2001 became a multimillionaire winner on Jeopardy. He had a longstanding thirst for knowledge and never stopped in his learning process. It was this longstanding thirst for knowledge that made Olmstead a Jeopardy winner in 1994 and paved the road for him to be in the hot seat for Millionaire in April 2001. There were anxious moments for all concerned There were red lights emitting a lot of heat thus beads of sweat, clammy palms, shaky knees for Olmstead. Many of us can relate to this somewhat. We can create a very minor situation in comparison in our own life when we approach what we consider undaunting odds related to building our SFI online business. Like Olmstead who had a very patient host standing there with him, we have a very patient open-armed leader with many assistants who are ready willing and able to help us begin our journey and continue walking through it for years to come. What it demands from us is a desire and willingness to seek the knowledge then put it into action. We do not have a ticking clock glaring at us; counting down the seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks or years. We build our business from the foundation up starting with a beginner’s knowledge. As we progress, our knowledge will grow; as will our confidence and competency. The comprehensive factor is making a commitment to learn, grow and perform daily operational duties necessary for success. This is how we earn our rewards. Rewards with honor and purpose. Never expecting others to do it for us. But! Asking them to walk along sides assisting with friendly, caring information, suggestions and sometime more. With gratitude for friends on all levels we are able to build our own business with pride. What a wonderful feeling and chest thumping celebration when we say. “I did it! I read, studied, learned and used that knowledge to perform! This is how winners are born. Have a wonderful day!

Agnes C -Your post is quite inspiring. Through the years I have had several management and sales positions and I recall the one gentleman who was always on top of everything. I asked him one day what piece of advice he could give me. He said, "okay," and he said to Always Keep Your EYES ON THE PRIZE. If you don't you'll drift off the path to success. No matter what occurs we must always stay focused and quite simply, "Keep Our Eyes On The Prize." Bless you and yours, Bye for now. Buy SFI/TC/R-ECA. Bruce Harper

Thank you Bruce you are so correct. I remember as a 4-H contestant in numerous contests, fairs, etc. The entire we prepped our animals, our speeches etc. our focus was always on the prize. But as you said it does take focus and dedication.
