Breaking Barriers: Is Your Future Determined By The Economy?


Babe Didrikson Zaharias played tennis, baseball and softball.  She was an expert diver, roller skater, and bowler.  She was a three time All-American basketball player in college.  She won two Olympic gold medals – one for the javelin throw and one for the 80-meter hurdles.  She won an Olympic silver medal for the high jump.

Breaking Barriers: Is Your Future Determined By The Economy?

She set records in the long jump, shot put and the baseball throw.  She then adopted golf as her sport, and went on to win eight two professional and amateur tournaments.

What does this have to do with the economy . . . and its affect on you?

The news about the economy is all bad, isn’t it?  Turn on the news – if you can handle stress well – and what will you hear about?

  • Unemployment
  • Failing Businesses
  • Lost Retirement Benefits
  • Housing Foreclosures
  • Rising Bankruptcies
  • Depleted Food Banks

If you’re reading this, you’re already thinking about how to be successful.   But whether you’re simply trying to make good decisions as you plan retirement or trying to reach a high level wealth, it might seem impossible in this negative climate.

I’m here to tell you that making money is a game.  If the economy is bad, maybe the odds are a little tougher, but it’s still a game – hopefully one you’ll have fun with.  What can Babe teach you about playing to win?

Babe knew a little bit about tough odds.  She was born in 1911 – a time when athletic women were regarded at best as oddities . . . at worst, as threats to the American way of life.  When sportswriter Joe Williams was confronted with her competitive spirit and powerful athleticism, he wrote, “It would be much better if she and her ilk stayed at home, got themselves prettied up and waited for the phone to ring.”

Her very identity as a woman was (and sometimes still is) questioned.  She and her husband weren’t permitted to adopt a baby they badly wanted.   She was frequently derided for her “manliness.”  Yet in 2000, the Associated Press voted her the Woman Athlete of the 20th Century.

Babe knew her Core Desires, and the cultural pressures and bias weren’t big enough obstacles to keep her from driving forward.

If you are tuned in to your Core Desires, your Conquering Force will enable you to press forward through the toughest barriers.

What’s bigger?  The rocky economy . . . or your Core Desire?

I can tell you how to unearth your Core Desires so that you can break through any barriers.  Check out my book, The DNA of Success to learn more.
