Vickie Milazzo's Thoughts for Success

Thoughts for Success: Successful People Play the Hand They’re Dealt, Even the Bad Ones

Have you ever met someone more successful than you and wondered if they’ve just been dealt a better hand at the poker table of life? It’s possible, but unlikely. Successful people are simply more accomplished at playing the hand they’re dealt – even the bad ones.

Thoughts for Success: Successful People Play the Hand They’re Dealt, Even the Bad Ones

Study any successful person and you’ll quickly learn she’s had to navigate rough waters along the success journey. In fact, facing big challenges is the perfect training for not being easily deterred by bad hands.

Your choice is simple: Either play the cards you’re dealt or fold and wait for a better hand. Either way, the cards in your hand are the only cards you’ve got. Personally, I’d rather be in the game than sitting at the table waiting for the perfect hand that may never come.

In life, as in cards, the more you play, the better you’ll get and the more chances you’ll have to finally draw those pocket aces you want. And if you don’t get them, well, sometimes you simply have to bluff your way to the top. It’s amazing how far a pair of deuces can get you. LOL!

Success Is Yours!

P.S. Comment and share how you’ve successfully played a bad hand you were dealt.

  1. Vickie,
    As you probably know I have admired you for more than 10 years and your inspirational messages have been a notable source of support since 2013 when I developed a facial paralysis then diagnosed as bell’s palsy. I was quite disfigured with drooling and a speech impediment but continued to grow my business. In 2016 my world almost fell apart when I was told it was always a small parotid tumor that had grown to a Stage 4B. I decided not to stop working (what else would I do at 4:30am?) and continued to press on. Today after extensive treatment and facial reconstruction I am more successful than ever and really smile (although still a little lopsided!) at this message. Once again, thanks, Vickie!
