How can a story change a life?

How did this step change my life?

As I mentioned in the last step I went to hear Zig Ziglar speak despite the ridicule of my friends. Zig held up a jar of fleas and said that he was the world’s champion flee trainer. He went on the explain that if you put fleas in a jar they would jump and jump and jump always hitting their heads on the top of the jar. Eventually they would get tired of hitting their heads and they would jump just high enough not to bump their heads. You could take the lid off the jar and they would never jump out.

The purpose of the illustration is to show that we have been flea trained to believe that we cannot get out of the jar. We can’t get a better job. We can’t start our own company. We can’t make it on our own? The failure rate is so high. You won’t make it. We can’t, we can’t, we can’t. You can’t, you can’t, you can’t.

Come back tomorrow for the rest of the story.
