They're afraid of FAILURE, afraid of REJECTION, and afraid of
Intense desire is the enemy of fear.

*You've got in believe what you're doing so much that you're

You've got to believe that what you're wanting to do is worth
doing and that it will accomplish what you want!
In the book, "The Power Of Focus" by Jack Canfield, Mark
Victor Hansen, and Les Hewitt, they say, "To overcome fear
you must have faith in the outcome."
If you want a good example of how belief helped someone to
succeed, then I have a great story for you...
The Invention Of Vaseline
It the late 19th century there was a young chemist named
Robert Chesebrough who sold kerosene.
He got his kerosene from the oil of sperm whales, but by 1859
he was put out of business.
In 1859, Robert Chesebrough took off for a Pennsyslvania oil
field to "strike it rich." What he came back with made him
rich beyond his wildest dreams.
But he didn't become rich from oil!
Oil field workers had told him about this "sticky stuff" that
stuck to the drilling rigs. The riggers hated this stuff -
it caused the drilling rigs to seize up.
For all the problems this substance caused, the riggers found
one small use - when rubbed on a cut or bruise it helped it
to heal faster.
He bottled the stuff up and dragged it back to his Brooklyn
He began a search to duplicate the petroleum-based lubricant,
and by trial and error, followed he was able to extract the
key ingredient - the translucent material we now know as
But it had to be tested, and tested it was.
He needed a guinea pig to test it out on. But who could he use?
Chesebrough cut his OWN hands and arms, burned himself with
flames and acids and each time he would then covered them with
his new gel.
ALL the self-inflicted wounds responded to his petroleum jelly
and were healed!
Satisfied that his new grease had healing properties, he took
to the road with his own medicine show, but first he named
Using the German word for water (wasser) and the Greek word
for oil (elaion) he came up with "Vaseline."
He took it out on the road and would demonstrate it by cutting
or burning himself and then applying his vasleine. He also
showed his audience the healed scars from past experiments.
Amazingly this worked.
Soon he was selling a jar a minute, and when these ran out
people begged their druggists to order more from Chesebrough.
It was used for everything: chest colds, chapped hands, nasal
congestion, and even to remove stains from furniture.
By the turn of the twenty century it had penetrated the
American market and was entering Europe, and Chesebrough had
become a very rich man!
Although its miracle properties were eventually debunked,
Chesebrough himself was always a true believer.
He lived to age 96, revealing shortly before he died the
secret to his longevity: *Every day of his life he ate a
spoonful of vaseline!
(* Not recommended! DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME! :)
Cheesbrough succeed because he believed so much in his
product/idea that he refused to give up!
