People will do some pretty amazing as well as outrageous things – when someone dares them.
But has anyone ever dared you to become a success; has anyone ever dared you to make a fortune providing great products and services to others.
Last night I was out bowling – and one of the people in my group saw I was ahead of him on points. As I went up to the line to get ready, he said, “Come on, Matt. Throw a gutter ball. We need a gutter ball.”
I turned around, looked him in the eyes and pointed to the floor, “You must be talking to the little mat that is sitting right there. You can’t be talking to me.”
He smiled and shut up.
In a sense, the man was daring me to throw a gutter ball. He was hoping I’d pick up on his vibe and act it out. He wasn’t daring me to succeed. He was daring me to do something I didn’t want to do.
Not only did I block his comments overtly, as I stepped up to the line I formed a mental picture of what I wanted – a strike – and whammo – I got one.
My friend, I’m daring you to succeed. I’m daring you to overlook the negative ideas, comments and looks of those who don’t want you to rise above them.
