I’m sure you’re familiar with the phrase, “You are your own worst enemy.” How many times have you talked yourself out of following through on a great idea or achieving a dream? Become your own best friend and speak to yourself the way you do when you encourage a family member or friend and tell them not to give up!
The real enemy is fear. Fear is a heavy weight that drags you down and prevents you from realizing your dreams. That’s why so many dreams go unfulfilled.
I’m not saying you should never feel fear. That’s impossible. Fear is always with us – just waiting for when we’re the most vulnerable to rear its ugly head and scream we won’t succeed. It takes on many forms, too – fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, fear of the truth, fear of what others think, fear of failure, even fear of success.
Fear won’t go away and it won’t be ignored. But what I will tell you to do is to FEEL IT. Feel the fear; acknowledge you’re afraid, then shift your mindset to one of believing you’ll succeed. When this happens, your fear turns into courage. And courage is fundamental to success.
Everyone feels fear, but the difference between successful people and those who aren’t is that successful people recognize their fear, breathe through it and change their mindset from one of fear to one of success. Then they attain their goals.
Every time fear grabs you, but you acknowledge and face it, you’ll find you’re stronger and it gets weaker.
Great people are great because they solve countless, seemingly unsolvable problems. You can, too, if you choose!
When you have a mindset for success and take massive action, you will get the kind of results in the end that most people only dream of.
Next question… Could you do this?
Could you become an “expert” at some marketing strategy? Could you take massive action in your business and seize opportunity? Could you make the decision not to give in to defeat?
Could you be a bit more personal and transparent in the way that you go about your marketing so that you stand out in a positive way?
Of course you could.
Actually, let’s change that… Not “could” but “can”.
You can do all this and more if you commit to, and start working on, developing a mindset for success.
The only question that remains is this: Are you willing…?
LUCK IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. It is, at best, like one of the people who show up in our lives, makes us feel really good about ourselves/situations, and then, with no forewarning, abandons us. Indeed, luck is like the wind, here one minute, and blowing on someone else the next.
Spend your time on something of more substance.
Persist in your learning. Persist in gaining skill-sets. Persist in choosing situations which elevate you. Persist in knowing what you want. Persist in chasing your dreams. Persist in achieving your goals. Persistence in life, whether personal or professional, is a game changer. It lets others know you’re serious. It tells the world you are a contender. It tells you something, too. It tells you, you’re a winner.
Winners succeed because they keep chipping away at their goals and plans. For more ideas on success, click here.
