"Nothing reduces the odds against you like ignoring them."
-- Robert Brault
It takes a brave person to focus on what they want, or where they are going, or what they are doing and ignore what anyone else thinks about that. What are odds anyway? Like who is making them? Shawn the Canadian? Tommy the Geek? America's Got Talent?
How many times was JK Rowling turned down before Harry Potter became a household name? How many times did Babe Ruth strike out? Or Hank Aaron? How many times did Edison try for the light bulb before he made it? The list goes on and on and on of people who ignored the odds and did it anyway. Foolish? Depends on your point of view, but it obviously wasn't the people who made it through.
No. You just have to want it enough. Just enough, to ignore the barriers, the odds, the Geek Squads--all of them. You are in charge. Only you.
The Odds Are In Your Favor If You Will.
Spread Some Joy Today--Whatever you've wanted to do. Maybe now is a good time to ignore the odds and the opinions and just get started. Write a book? Build a website? Write a song? Build a dream? The stage is yours. . .
