You cannot succeed in fighting your fear if you keep running away from what you fear. If you want to succeed, you must first fight what you fear. You must first “trample your fear beneath your feet.”
Nadia Comaneci said, “I don’t run away from a challenge because I am afraid, I run toward it because the only to escape fear is to trample it beneath your feet.” Success is not without challenges. If you want to succeed, you must embrace your fear. You must fight your fear by doing what you are scared of. Don’t let what you are scared of stop you from achieving your dreams.
Fear is real. But if you want to move forward in life, you must conquer your fear. It is not going to be easy, but it is doable. Remember, if you fear something, that thing is worth pursuing. Successful people face their fears, and their fears disappear. If you have the gut to face your fear, you can achieve anything you want in life. You can live the life you are created to live.
Take care of your fear, and your fear will leave you alone.
Successful people know what unsuccessful people don’t know.
In the words of Colin Powell, “There are no secrets to success. It is a result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.”
Success is not about material possessions. Success is about you and how you conduct yourself. How you do your daily business. What is success to you is not success to the next guy.
Success comes to those who attract it. If you
attract success, if you do the right things, if you work hard, success will
visit you, too.
The question here is: “Why are some people
“Why are others not so successful?” What are the
Is there any secret to success? If there is, how
can we find it?
What is it that the successful people know that the rest of us are missing? What did they do that made them super successful?
Are they doing what the rest of us are doing? Or,
Are they doing something differently that the rest
of us are not paying attention to?
Let us look at some of the things that successful
people are doing right that the rest of us are missing.
people are courageous.
Successful people are courageous people. They are scared of the unknown, but they never stop pursuing their dreams. They don’t allow fear to stop them from achieving their dreams. They know that without courage, nothing will happen. They look fear in the eye and keep going. They never stop moving.
“Without courage, wisdom bears no fruit.”- Baltasar Gracian
people embrace mistakes.
Successful people know that without mistakes they are not going anywhere. When you make mistakes, it shows you are learning. It shows you are progressing. It shows you are doing the right thing. Don’t be scared to make mistakes. It is part of your journey to success. Embrace it. Learn from it. Move on.
“To make no mistakes is not in the power of man; but from their errors and mistakes the wise and good learn wisdom for the future.”– Plutarch, Greek Roman biographer
people know what they want.
Successful people know what they want and how to get it. It is easier to succeed if you know what you want. If you know what you want to achieve in life, it is easier for you to go about achieving it. But if you don’t know, you won’t know how to get it. Know what you want, assess the situation, plan, take action, and measure your progress. If you don’t like your results, change what you are doing.
“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.”– Seneca The Younger
people trust themselves.
Successful people trust themselves, even when they don’t know what they are doing. They believe in themselves. They believe in what they are doing. Success starts with self-belief. If you want to be successful, YOU MUST BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. Self-belief gives you courage, confidence, hope, and determination to pursue your dream. You must believe in yourself if you are to succeed. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one will believe in you. No matter what you are going through, don’t make excuses, just believe in yourself, and you will be a victor.
“Trust in what you do, continue to do it, and it will take you where you need to go.”- Natalie Goldberg, Zen practitioner
To be successful, you must do the right thing. You
must work hard and smart. You must look fear in the eye and say, “I am a
Success is a process. It is not a final stop. If you want to really be successful, you must do the right things. Successful people are successful because they do what others are not willing to do, and they don’t do what others do.
“You can do anything if you believe you can do it. You can’t do anything if you believe you can’t do anything.”
If you want more beautiful things in life, do
things in beautiful ways. You must give beautiful things to people, and people
will give beautiful things back to you.
Here are six things that successful people DON’T do:
don’t waste time.
Successful people don’t waste their time. They value their time. They do the right and the most important things first. They don’t waste their time living in the past. They don’t waste their time living in the future. They waste their time living in the moment.
“All that really belongs to us is time; even he who has nothing else has that.”– Baltasar Gracian
don’t try to change what they cannot change.
Successful people know what they can change, and
they change it. Successful people know what they cannot change, and they don’t
even try to change it. If you try to change what you cannot change, you are
just wasting your time.
“Life is not orderly. No matter how we try to make it so, right in the middle of it we die, lose a leg, fall in love, drop a jar of applesauce.”-Natalie Goldberg, zen practitioner
don’t fear success.
Successful people don’t fear success. They embrace
it. They welcome it. They prepare for it. They are successful in their minds
before they meet success. They know that success comes with discipline, with
responsibility, with focus, and with integrity. They believe in themselves that
they can succeed.
“Your chances of success in any undertaking can always be measured by your belief in yourself.”– Robert Collier
don’t fear failure.
Successful people don’t fear failure. They embrace
failure. They know that failure is part of the game of life. When they fail at
something, they just keep moving. They don’t blame anyone for their mistakes.
They take responsibility for what happened to them.
“I have not failed I have just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”– Thomas Edison
don’t doubt themselves.
Successful people don’t doubt themselves. They
believe they can do anything. They believe that nothing is impossible in life.
They don’t doubt themselves. Successful people are scared, but they don’t allow
fear to stop them from achieving their dreams.
“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities. Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own power you cannot be successful or happy.”- Norman Vincent Pearle
don’t search for happiness.
Successful people don’t search for happiness. They give happiness. They know that when you give happiness to people, you will be happy. For that reason, they always try to make people happy. If you want to be happy, make people happy. Add happiness to people’s lives, and they will add happiness to your life.
“You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.”- Albert Camus
To get what we want from life, we must first know what we want. Most people want something but they don’t know how to get them.
You will be successful if you know what you want.
You will be successful if you know how to get what
You will be successful if you focus on getting
what you want.
You can get what you want if you believe you can. Napoleon Hill said, “You can do it if you believe you can.”
You can really be successful if you can just do more than you are paid to do. Do more than you are paid to do. Don’t do what others are doing. Do what you think is right, and what will push you closer to your dream. Again, Napoleon Hill said, “Render more service than that for which you are paid and you will soon be paid for more than you render. The law of ‘increasing returns’ takes care of this.”
Let us look at more ways you can get the best that
you so much deserved in life.
When you take responsibility for your actions, you
are giving yourself power to conquer other bigger and more challenging things
ahead of you. But if you blame other people for your actions, you are giving
your power away. Don’t blame anyone. Take responsibility for your actions.
“You must accept responsibility for your actions, but not the credit for your achievements.”- Denis Waitley
To get what you want in life, act! Don’t wait for
the perfect time to do it. Do it today. If you don’t take action to change your
life, your life will not change.
“Don’t watch the clock, do what it does. Keep going.”- Sam Levenson
Your success will not come from putting important things
off until tomorrow. Your success will come from doing the first and the most important
things first. Don’t procrastinate.
Arthur Ashe said, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
is not final.
If you fail at something, don’t take it as final.
It is not final, and it will never be. It is okay to fail when you are finding
the right path to success. If you want to be successful, you must be
comfortable with failure.
As Margie Warrell put it, “Just because you fail at something does not mean you’re a failure.”
It takes 10- 20 years to be lucky. If you want to be lucky, you must be patient. Success goes to those who are patient, not those who are always running. Be patient. Success is a process, not by accident.
“Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome.”- Arthur Ashe
positively about things.
No matter what is happening around you, focus on
the positive things. When you focus on positive things, you will attract
positive things into your life. When you focus on negative things, you will attract
negative things into your life.
“We are not permitted to choose the frame of our destiny. But what we put into it is ours.”– Dag Hammarskjold, economist
Everything is possible if you want it badly. Focus on what you want and you will get it.
