“You can Complain because ROSES have THORNS, or you can Rejoice because THORNS have ROSES”
Take two people. They can even be a set of twins born of the same parents, with similar backgrounds, experience, and education. Give them both the same set of tools. Let's say you give them both a shiny new hammer, a box of nails, and a few planks of wood. What will you discover?
One will do well. The other may not. One may build a Showcase. The other may not build anything at all, saying, "I'm not a carpenter." One may build Furniture and go into business. The other may build a stool and sit on it. Again, what's the difference?
The key is in the person, not in the tools!
In short, the person who does well has an inner set of beliefs --- a mindset, if you will --- that will help them achieve anything they want no matter what tools they are handed. And that's what the successful people today have: A millionaire's mindset. An inner wiring that directs them, almost automatically, to be successful and achieve their dreams.
