It's amazing how simple it is, and it works, because there are so few that are willing to do it. And very often, as my famous Freemasons tell me, you wind up way further than you wildest expectation. That's because there are so few really willing to go against the grain of conventional wisdom and try something new--those willing to chart those new waters without fear of those warnings on the edges of the known map that say beyond this point 'here be dragons.'
One thing I noted in nearly all of the Famous American Freemasons I've profiled in my books over the years, was this belief that nothing is impossible. In fact, I think most of them achieved success and fame because of that belief alone. They had their own ideas about how things should work. They had their own opinions, and refused to believe anyone that said what they were planning on doing couldn't be done.
Just think of the stories that wouldn't exist in our history if it weren't for people that believed the impossible was possible. Lewis & Clark. Charles Lindbergh. John Paul Jones. The Doolittle Raid. And even, the American Revolution--the first great grassroots uprisings that actually succeeded!
If you don't know these stories, you should. They are inspirational. And while it's history, those principles still work today. There's a good source where you can learn a few of these stories. They are in my books.
