If you’re a 9th grader through college sophomore and you’re really serious about getting scholarships, I want to teach you something. I want to share something with you that I hope you remember for the rest of your life.
Even God can’t move a parked car.
Even God, the Almighty, can’t move a parked car because a parked car is, by definition, parked. So that car won’t start rolling, won’t start going forward, unless somebody puts it in gear.
And that’s what you gotta do when it comes to scholarships search.
You’ve got to put your scholarship-search car in gear.
You’ve got to go out and do something.
I promise you this: if you do nothing today to apply for scholarships, if you do nothing today to write an essay for scholarships, if you do none of the things that I’ve been teaching you for months, you won’t get scholarships tomorrow.
You won’t have anything in the hopper for the future.
See, what I like about the kids who are really doing it is they’re applying for 3 different scholarships a week. They’re finding their own scholarships and using the ones that I give them. Then they do the work to apply for them.
They’re not worrying about the results. They’re going through the motion.
If you go through the motion, do the work, and plant the seed, you will reap what you sow.
Trust me. If you’re not somebody who can win scholarships, you wouldn’t even be affiliated with me anyway.
So whether you’re in our program or you’re somebody thinking about it or you’re somebody who can do it on your own, just do it.
Do the Nike thing: just do it.
If you do the things that we teach at the Scholarship Leadership Institute, if you do the things that we teach in my book, What Would You Do If You Knew You Couldn’t Fail?, if you do the things that we teach on our Facebook and other social media sites, you can have results that are astonishing.
Even at my workshops, some people leave and apply for 8 scholarships right away. Many people leave my seminars and go apply for scholarships right away too.
What is it about me that makes everyone do what they should be doing anyway?
I don’t know, but I’m glad it works because it helps me sustain a living that I want to do for the rest of my life. I want to help people like you. I want to help non-apathetic kids who make a difference in their parents’ lives by earning their own scholarships.
I want you to understand this: even God can’t move a parked car. He won’t. You have to put it in gear. I would love to help you.
This is Major Betz signing off. God bless, and take care.
