Total Baloney #4 - If you believe it...

Have you heard this dopey saying?

If you believe it, you can achieve it.
Try telling that to the supremely confident Harland Luffner. As he worked his way up the ladder, Lufner believed he would ultimately become CEO of his company. 

Moreover, Luffner really, really, really, really, really believed it. He considered his ascension a foregone conclusion, in the bag, a done deal, and a fait accompli. Finally, he was next in line,

But the board gave the top job to the founder's nephew. And what happened to Mr. Luffner? He was canned for parking his Mercedes in the spot marked for the CEO. 


Linda - Luffner just didn't believe enough. With a little more belief, he would have reached his goal.
