Being successful is all about having the proper belief system. If you believe in your mind that you are going to be successful, then you will be. Our brain is like a circuit that needs to have the proper wiring and the right connections for everything else to function properly. Yes, we all have doubts in life and that even goes for the most successful people in the world. But they learn to stay in a positive mindset. It’s all about how you deal with your negative thoughts within that exact moment in time and override them with positive action. Our positive actions come from the utter most confidence in ourselves. Continuously make your mindset be that you are bigger, better and stronger than the negative moment you are in and that could be the start of a new beginning.
The next time you give a low effort towards your job, your work out, or towards life in general, you must take a moment and reflect on what you’re thinking about at the time. If your effort is low, then you’re thinking about the ‘loss’ instead of the ‘gain’ you hold in your hands! You have so much opportunity to do whatever you set your mind to, but when your mind is overcome with discouraging thoughts, you only think of the loss, not the development of something great. You have a choice. You are the one deciding who you want to be. Arnold Schwarzenegger once stated, “Anything that I’ve ever attempted I was always be willing to fail. You can’t always win, but don’t be afraid of making decisions. You can’t be paralyzed by fear of failure or you will never push yourself. You keep pushing because you believe in yourself and in your vision and you know that it is the right thing to do, success will come.” Never be afraid to try something in life that you could potentially fail at. Failures are part of life. If you don’t fail, you don’t learn. In the words of Brian Tracy, “commit yourself to lifelong learning. The most valuable asset you’ll ever have is your mind and what you put into it”.
Motivation is just a feeling. You can take it anywhere you go, but putting yourself into action is what gets things done. Being consistent with your goals and persistent in pushing yourself in life will help turn those thoughts into actions. You have to want it more than you’re afraid of it. Do not let your fear of failing overcome your desire to succeed. If you are willing to fail over and over again proves your true potential, and you will become extraordinary.
