Well, if you think about it, then success in anything you’re doing can be boiled down to a scientific formula.. The only habit that will create is a quick trip to the toilet first thing in the morning.yea, but I’m the one that’s been stabbed.. Take it; they’re taught.
To create a personal success system that never fails requires good habits. I learned the emotion of fear was not subject to reason.
He said I was scared stiff.
Yea, that’s right. Success is achieved by those who try. Just from nervousness. So, his manager told him, “I’ll give you five names everyday to call on.
You become a success at whatever you’re doing in this game by trying, and trying, and keep on trying… So destructive that it could paralyze the biggest of men. Many of you know I am a recording artist and my passion is music. First of all I recognized fear is nature’s way of keeping me from harm, particularly when I don’t know what’s waiting for me. And his sales manager said these words to him. I reasoned there was no need to be afraid.
Then why do so few people achieve what Michael Jordan has? Fear of failure.

Richard Vegas is a popular recording artist and internet marketing professional. It just doesn’t work like that.
He told him to go to the yellow pages and find the names of five owners and call on them. You know, like eating a pork barrel full of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream at 3 am in the morning. No body likes to fail. Just make sure to see these people the very same day. I knew a guy a few years ago that was hard up for a job. What neutralized the fear? Action.
When I first started, I would sit in my seat hoping the DJ would lose my slip of paper with my name on it so he couldn’t call me up there. Or, make ME eat that pork barrel full of ice cream.. Let me illustrate.
Everyday for a week, he made several sales, and then, something interesting happened. And, your entire career will depend on your attitude. But, the fear was still there. He had never sold anything in his life.
Another illustration from my personal experience. “Success is a matter of mental bimetallic screw barrel attitude. He said that’s what I’ve been doing for the last week.
When I first started singing, I would go to night clubs that sponsored karaoke or open mic nights and sing. Apply the one, avoid the other. Not as you sit on your rear eating that pork barrel full of ice cream and wish and hope.
The more I did this, the less nervousness I had. I mean it was not like I was facing a firing squad; no one was about to shoot me. Failure can also be boiled down to a formula.
Hey gang; Ok it’s time to create some good habits.
I say this all the time. I found out I could talk to myself till I was wacky, and could not talk away the fear. Ok, so what makes you so special? You think Elvis never failed? You think Henry Ford never failed? What causes failure anyway?
Timidity and Fear! Yuk! I knew you were going to say that.
He said I went out there with the same attitude with the names I selected as I had with the names that my sales manager had picked for me.” YOUR attitude.
He learned that fear could be a destructive emotion.
Then he said I learned an important lesson about timidity and fear. His sales manager was in a meeting and could not give him his five names to call on. Ha! After I would sing one song, the back of my neck would be dripping with perspiration after only a 3 minute song. Fear is not subject to reason, but it is subject to action. To do so, will brand you a scammer, and a spammer, and who knows what else, maybe a jackass. In the sales profession, people are taught never ask a prospect for his time. Without good habits, you will default to bad habits. But failure is only temporary as long as we take another stab at what we’re doing. If they only knew. He promised and went home to study his sales material. Let me illustrate.
Sing to Win they said!!
In the very highly competitive game of Internet Marketing you play according to the rules, and you must not violate the standards of net-etiquette. Yuk, he said, why don’t I just slit my wrist? But he said, I can’t even get a job driving a garbage truck, so, he did take a job selling insurance.. He invites you to subscribe to his FREE weekly ezine “Wing-Tips” at:

. I had NO reason to be afraid.
And, the emotion of fear will be neutralized as you begin to try. Sounds simple, right?
Then why do so darn many people fail when attempting something worthwhile? Why do so many find themselves sucking wind and always ending up the tail instead of the head? Michael Jordan said it best. Money is NOT attracted to negative behavior.
You say though
So, I learned an important psychological principle..that’s not the kind of habit I’m talking about. I felt like a long tailed cat in a dark room full of rocking chairs.When you go after something don’t come back till you get it. He told me someone suggested he sell insurance.. When your thoughts will not rid you of an undesirable emotion, action will. People all the time think that “some” people are just gifted to sing and perform.. If there is nothing significant to lose by trying and a lot to gain by trying, by all means, try. Of course, no one else knew this. “I have failed over and over again in my life, and THAT is why I succeed. Then one day, no more perspiration. I learned that fear was not conducive to giving my best performance. Then eventually work is fun, life is worth living, and you begin attracting like a magnet all you desire including money
