Wisdom from Wally "Famous" Amos

What does the man famous worldwide for chocolate-chip cookies got to do with success? Plenty, actually. Wally Amos has written nine books and is a motivational speaker. Below is a quote taken from the most recent issue of "Success" magazine during an interview with him.

'A lot of people said, "You can't make a living selling just chocolate-chip cookies." I think what they were saying is that they didn't think they could do it. I believed that I could do it because I knew how to make chocolate-chip cookies and I knew how to promote, so why couldn't I do it? because it had never been done before? Oh well. At one point, nothing had been done, and look at where we are now.' ~ Wally "Famous" Amos

When we are intent on doing something, we will always encounter people who tell us that something can't be done. Take it from Wally Amos. Just because they can't do it doesn't mean we can't do it, too. If there's a will, then there's a way.

If it has to be, then it is up to me! Just do it!
