A Wet Blanket Lesson


November 7, 2009

By definition, "wet blankets" are people whose pessismism can stop momentum in its tracks. They are the one who are always finding the negative and shouting, "It can't be done!"

You may know one. Or two.

But "Wet Blanket Lesons" take the negative...and turn it into the positive.

In 1876, there was an internal memo out of Western Union:

"This 'telephone' has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us."

The REAL lesson here...

Sure, a credible source may have told you that you're not experienced enough to get the job or rich enough to start the business...but does that person's opinion really control your destiny?

Listen to the experts...evaluate their input...but don't let their opinions become your blueprint for moving forward.
