Do not fear failure be afraid of not trying. Show me someone that says they have never failed and I will show you a person that has never tried.
Failure is not to be feared. What you should fear is not trying. It you are failing then you are trying. You have a greater goal in mind that you are working on. The biggest factor is that you don’t stop.
We live in a world where it seems that perfection is the only option, it is not. Success is not pretty. Success is not clean and polished. Success is hard work, grind, sometimes struggle but it is so so worth it and is far better than residing to the status quo. Those that follow the crowd, will often get no further than the crowd, unless you upgrade the crowd you follow that is going where you want to go.
Anyone that is successful has been a failure many times. What made them successful was the fact that they never gave up.
Albert einstein at 4 years old was told by his teachers that he would never amount to much
Michael Jordan was cut from his high school basketball team.
At 30, Oprah Winfrey was ‘between jobs.’
And look at how they turned out. Too many people give up at the first failure, the first bump in the road, the first sign of difficulty. If you did that you would never get anywhere. When it becomes hard, when life throws stuff at you, you’ve got to be able to say ‘IS THAT ALL YOU’VE GOT!’ Go at it with a tenacity like no other.
Let the fire inside burn greater than the fire around you.
So if you have a plan, a dream, a goal or a vision for yourself. Do not give up on it like so many others do. The road to success is not a straight line, it is up and down, sideways, sometime loop-the-loops but as long as you are moving forward that is what counts.
Do not say that after a day at work that you don’t have time to work on your dreams. Don’t sit in front of the television and numb yourself from the drive and the desire that is within. Don’t succumb to the rubbish that is touted to us in the media to keep us distracted from the truths and your true calling.
If it means enough to you, you will find a way. If not, then you will find an excuse – Jim Rohn.
So what’s it going to be?
