I have been studying something and want to share it with you. It made me successful in a way that it bought some peace within me. Hope I can do the same to you.
I am successful right now, but before that I failed a lot of times.
And with my failures, I have studied failure in itself.
Broadly speaking, real failure is :
* Failing personally, not professionally.
* Yielding to cowardice in the face of an urgent but risky situation, thereby promoting fear to a position of power.
* Protecting your pride from a possibly embarrassing professional failure rather than promoting a worthy cause.
This is real failure as a person. But there’s good news. If you are, or have ever been, a failure, it doesn’t have to be final!
After the sadness of failure, there can always be the joy of success.
You can reverse your fortune and brighten your future by changing your thinking and welcoming success.
But first what is success?
Is it about solving problems and resolving difficulties? Yes. But understand success is a journey, not a destination, an unending project never a single, simple accomplishment that stands alone unrelated to the past and disconnected from the future. So you’ve solved one problem? This success will spawn new problems! You’ve resolved one difficulty? This success will hatch a batch of new ones. Also, success doesn’t just happen. You have to plan and work hard to make it happen. Success is becoming yourself at your very best. It’s nothing to do with someone else, it’s to do with you. How good are you compared to what you could be?
That is success!!!
So, what is the magic ingredient that can eliminate failure and ensure success in our lives?
It is undoubtedly Positive Thinking.
However, attaining a positive image of ourselves is not easy because society generally does not pat us on the back for the good we may have done. Instead our mistakes are highlighted and it is criticism that comes our way.
Also, where genuine compliments are concerned, we are our own worst enemies. Praise embarrasses us and though we appreciate compliments, we hesitate, because we do not really know how to accept them. That way we do not strengthen our healthy positive pride.
Therefore, to restructure a personality from negative to positive requires clearing the “construction site” of slum structures, the old negative attitudes, and laying new foundations that can support new skyscrapers. How much baggage of negative attitudes toward ourselves have we been carrying along with us? Let it go! Abandon these self-condemning and self-belittling opinions!
Fear of failure is a very intense motivational factor for avoiding goals. We would rather not try at all than try and fail. What will people think of us if we fail? The opinions of others often hold us back from setting goals and trying to change. If we fail, people will think we're good for nothing. If we succeed, people may not like the way we've changed.
Who are those people anyway?
Let me ask you all a question……
How many of you would like to have a successful day?
Value your own intelligence and ability and your own instinctive and intuitive qualifications. You will experience a profound inner awareness that you can start a change in your own life and in the world around you!
Of utmost importance is … confidence in yourself!
Have the belief and confidence in yourself as well as in your aim, your objective, your … Dream!
Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice. Have the courage to listen to your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want.
Of course, a capacity for fear is part of our survival instinct. But fear not that you might fail. Fear rather that you might never succeed if you do not dare to try.
Success is not an end in itself but a positioning in power for greater accomplishments and higher achievements.
Wonders are many, but none is more wonderful than man, and a truly great man never puts away the simplicity of a child. Everyone of us, whatever our age has a little of the child within us. Don’t kill the child, protect the child. It is the child that will protect you in the ups and downs of life. Look at the funny side of any situation that is not going your way. Bring in a bit of humour. It will be like a breath of fresh air and will relax you and those around you. With renewed vigour and a positive frame of mind, completing your task will appear less difficult.
Our stations in life may be different, our positions in life may be different, but at our own level, we are all trying to survive in a very insecure world. What permanent guarantees do we have?
Do we have any?It is still a very insecure world, and we are all trying to survive in it. So, to combat this, the first step is positive thinking. With the right mindset and our sights clearly focused on our goals, we are on our way to achieving our objectives.
Thanks for reading, to end this, I have put some of the best quotes I could find. Again, just think positive, everything will be alright.
- Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success. (Dale Caregie)
- In order to succeed you must fail, so that you know what not to do the next time. (Anthony J. D'Angelo)
