<= share over there (thanks).
No one likes to fail! There is not a person out there who enjoys the feeling of not being capable of succeeding… of feeling like we are weak and not good enough.
Many people even hold off on trying new things because they are afraid of having these feelings of inadequacy.
Have you ever held off doing something because of the fear of failure? Most people do.
Want the truth about failure?
It is not real… until YOU make it real. Without you giving failure life it does not even exist!!
Lets check out some of the definitions of failure found in the dictionary:
=> a failing to do or perform
=> a state of inability to perform a normal function adequately
=> fracturing or giving way under stress
Read those definitions again and look at them closely…
What do you see?
ALL 3 of them have something in common when it comes to achieving your goals.
Failing is only a PERCEPTION.
Which means that it is all in your head.
=> If you think you have failed then you have failed.
=> If you have convinced yourself that you are not able to succeed at your goal then you won’t.
=> If you are convinced that you are unable to deal with the pressure of making your goal a reality then you won’t.
=> If you believe success is not for you it will not be.
Failure is only real if you let it be real!!
It originates in your mind. The very second you decided to quit working towards your goals you give failure life.
What would happen if no matter what you kept on pushing towards your goals, doing the work that is required no matter what?
Taking the required steps for as long as it takes?
I will tell you what would happen… there would be no failure!!
This truth should encourage you.
If you are working towards a goal or thinking about doing so. Simply keep on keeping on and you will never fail.
The following are 3 tips you can use to stay focused on achieving your goals:
Failure Busting Tip #1) Never Give Yourself an Out.
The majority of us start working towards a goal, but have in the back of our mind already prepared a way to escape if it gets to tough.
We are prepared to chase after our goal and work on it… UNTIL the going gets to tough or we get bored and lose our motivation.
This is the number 1 reason people fail at realizing their dreams!
There is an easy solution to this… STOP Doing it!
Do not allow yourself an out!
Commit to your plan… commit to doing what is required UNTIL you succeed. Even when you don’t feel like doing what is required, make yourself.
Get in your mind that you are not going to quit… failure is not an option and just do it!
Failure Busting Tip #2) Don’t Give Yourself a Deadline.
Don’t tell yourself that the goal has to be achieved by an exact time.
It is fine to give yourself a general timeline, but keep it very general.
Understand that success will not be a straight line. You will have ups and downs, set backs and frustrations.
These will for the most part be out of your control and will affect the time it takes to complete your goal.
It is pretty much impossible to set a timeline for your goal to be achieved.
So don’t do it! If you do you are setting yourself up to fail!
Go ahead and have a general time frame of when you would like to see your goal achieved, but be very very flexible with this. Instead of focusing on the results, focus on the required activities that will get you there.
They are not failure!
Setbacks are simply part of the deal. Everyone who has ever become a success has experienced more then their fair share of setbacks.
Do not confuse them for failure.
All a delay means is that your time to succeed as not yet arrived…That is all!
It does not mean that you have failed.
It does not mean you don’t have what it takes to be a success.
It does not mean you will never become a success. It only means you have not yet arrived.
It only means you have to keep on keeping on and figure out a solution to this setback.
The ONLY way you can fail is if you give up and quit.
Success is simply a mindset…
If you tell yourself you are going to succeed no matter what then you have already succeed and it is now simply a matter of time between you and the achievement of your goals.
If you are serious about being a success and not just curious, then you will do what is required to get yourself there. It will happen!
