Overcoming odds is an ability you have within that can be developed to achieve your goals.

You have the ability within to overcome great odds.

To achieve your goals look beyond the difficulties of life.

Problems have a way of stacking up against us.

In the game of life defeat odds that stack up against you with a sound business plan.

In the thirteenth century war plagued mankind similar to the atrocities of today’s modern warfare.

A warrior feared by all his enemies was the Great Genghis Khan, a Mongolian warlord.

In the ancient city of  Samarkand, Genghis Khan in 1220, laid waste to the city burning it to the ground, leaving it in rubble.

To his fellow countrymen he was likened to a George Washington, the father of Mongolia.

Study reveals the famous quote referring to the citizens of Samarkand dying at the hands of Genghis Khan’s armies, “Come sip from the cup of destruction”.

Yuri Buryakov, an Uzbek archeologist, is an authority on the fate of Samarkand, estimate the dead at 100,000. The city population was estimated at 200,000.

Genghis Khan has been called one who possesses great energy,  discernment, genius, understanding, awe – inspiring, a butcher, just, an over thrower of enemies,  and cruel to name a few of his character traits. Genghis died in August 1227, at the age of 60 years.

It is written in his epitaph he left to his clan a unified Mongolia and the most powerful army in the world at that time.

History tells us his warriors defeated armies much greater in number than his own.

He outmaneuvered his opponents to win many major battles.

The victor is not always the stronger opponent in a fight.

Show up in the work place, perform as a team and bring your A game.

You too can win battles looking beyond the circumstances of the present.

Strong teams unify the business that employ them making things better for the entire corporation.

To achieve your goals look beyond the present difficulties of life and defy all odds to succeed.

Overcoming odds allows the achievement of goals.
