15 People Who Succeeded Because They Left The Comfort Zone

Have you ever come across someone who’s done their level best to take the wind out of your sails?

Maybe you’ve had some amazing new idea, decided to start your own business, or achieved something you’ve been really proud of and this person has thrown a huge bucket of water over your excitement.

Perhaps you’ve gone against the grain and wanted to do things differently, only to be met with dismissal and consternation. Whatever it is, whoever dismissed your dreams, you need to remember that most people are really fond of their comfort zones.

When we have big ideas, we really can make people feel uncomfortable, and that can trigger all kinds of unpleasant reactions. People who are afraid of growth often dislike giants. We need to stop keeping ourselves small to fit into places we’ve outgrown.

Think about some of the greatest figures in history whose ideas were dismissed. What would the world be like today if they’d given up? Want some for instances? Here you go:

1 – Steven Spielberg was rejected from film school three times.

2 – Rudyard Kipling was fired by his editor, who said he did not know how to use the English language.

3 – Stephen King’s Carrie was rejected 30 times. The novel only came to be after his wife retrieved the manuscript from the trash and persuaded King to submit it again.

4 – Vincent Van Gough only sold one painting while he was alive, and that was to a friend, for a pittance.

5 – Lucille Ball’s drama teachers insisted she was a failure and urged her to try a different career.

6 – Abraham Lincoln went from sergeant to private during wartime and had several failed businesses behind him.

7 – Socrates was labeled an ‘immoral corruptor of youth’ and given a death sentence.

8 – Isaac Newton failed at the farming business and, aside from maths, did not do well at school.

9 – Charles Darwin was considered lazy and ‘below a common standard of intellect’.

10 – Albert Einstein did not speak until he was four, or read until he was seven; he was also expelled from school.

11 – Lady Gaga was dropped from her record label after only three months.

12 – Thomas Edison was fired from his job after a secret experiment went wrong. To be fair, he did burn a hole through the floor with acid, but still…

13 – Elvis Presley was told to go back to driving trucks.

14 – Oprah Winfrey was fired because she was unable to sever her emotion from her stories.

15 – Anna Wintour was fired from her junior job and her shoots were judged ‘too edgy’.

And as for me? I was called lazy at school and told to work with kids or be a dog groomer. I’ve done okay, thanks very much.

So now, dear reader, it’s your turn. Do not let the doubters hold you back.

Go on. Go for it!

If it doesn’t work out, you can either keep trying, armed with more wisdom, or you can do something else you’ve been dreaming of. At least you won’t look back thinking ‘if only…’.

Until next time,

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda. We need to take a close look at his exploits and see what patterns are formed. Then, let’s take it a step further and ask who might be coaching Joe. Knowing the enemy is the first step toward defeating that enemy…

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it. Why did the framers of this union create this Constitution the way they did? What was the purpose that We the People had in mind when we ordained and established it?

What to Expect if the Tyranny in Australia Hits Home

Since August, Australians cannot go out of their homes for longer than an hour to socialize or shop. We are witnessing the extreme government tyranny that can take over a once-free society and the speed with which it can happen. It’s a snapshot of what could be coming to the United States of America and other freedom-loving countries, and we’d better start paying attention…

Bush invoked January 6th in his comments on the hallowed ground of Shanksville during the 9/11 ceremonies.

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

A government that can force people to take medical treatments against their wishes can do whatever it wants, and the fact that Joe Biden’s order is unconstitutional will not stop tens of millions of Americans from being forced to get vaccinated against their will, in order to continue supporting their families. By the time the Supreme Court shoots this order down (assuming they do), the damage will already be done…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #3

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough, #3

We have had no side effects that we are aware of from the vaccine. Does this mean we are free from future side-effects? Should we forego any boosters? Did the vaccine destroy our natural immunity? Should I be more concerned about getting the virus or future variants? How accurate is the VAERS data? Join us on the Voice of a Nation for our third COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough…

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

The Unholy Alliance Between Big Pharma’s Vaccines and Drugs and the FDA

One MD remarked on the day of the sham approval, Do they actually think that with a stroke of the pen—like a magic wand—“approval” suddenly occurs? Nothing the FDA, pharma, or otherwise says or do is a substitute for 10-12 years of research and development of a biologic. But, sadly, most of the world will believe so. The FDA increasingly fast-tracks expensive drugs and vaccines with significant side effects and unproven health benefits. According to FDA’s own employees, drug company payments bias regulators, with “an inclination toward approval.”
