“Winners are losers who got up and gave it one more try.”- Dennis de Young

When you see successful people, don’t envy them. They were once called names. They changed their lives by getting up and give it one more try. Whatever you are going through right now, it is not the end of the road. It is the beginning of your success. Give it one more try. Give it one push, and I bet you will succeed.

“Being aware of your fear is smart, overcoming it is the mark of a successful person.”- Seth Godin

To be successful in life, in your business, in whatever you do, you MUST first learn how to cope with fear. Fear is real. It is not what you can just push aside. It is the first thing to enter your mind when you are planning new thing. Fear is the first thing to tell you ‘what you are planning is not going to work.’ But don’t let fear stop you from pursuing your dream. It is good to recognize that fear is there, but overcoming it is more powerful.

“The great secret of getting what you want from life is to know what you want and believe you can have it.”- Norman Vincent Pearle

To be successful in life, you need more than just a high IQ. You need more than that. You need a positive attitude. You have to know what you and how to get it. You have to believe in yourself that everything is possible. Everything starts with self-belief. If you believe in yourself, people will believe in you. But if you doubt yourself, people will doubt you. You can’t fake it. Believe you can, and you will.

“It’s what it is. But, It will be what you make it.”- Pat Summitt, coach

No one is in control of your life, but you. No one is your master; you are your own master. You are living a great life if you are the one managing your life. If you allow people to manage your life for you, will never be satisfied with what you get. They will give you what they think that you worth. But the question is: “Is that what you really worth?” If you want to be happier, healthier, and wealthier, don,t let anyone be your master. Be your OWN master.


“A Mistake Is Valuable If You Do These Four Things With It”

John Wooden famously said, “A mistake is valuable if you do four things with it: recognize it, admit it, learn from it, forget it.”

You cannot grow without making lots of mistakes. The difference between you and those avoiding mistakes is what you do with it. If you are avoiding mistakes, you are also avoiding growth and development- personally and professionally. You cannot grow without making mistakes.

Let us look at what you can do when you make a mistake or mistakes, according to John Wooden.

According to John Wooden, when you mess up badly, you should do the following things:

Recognize it. When you make a mistake, don’t hide it from your people. Let them know what has just happened. If you keep it away from people who can help you, you are making it worse.

Admit it. When you screw up badly, just admit it. I know this is hard for some people to even think about. Some people would rather die than to admit that they mess up. Know this: if you have the courage to admit your mistakes, your people will never let you down. You will become the leader or a person that people want to follow to hell. It takes courage to do that. But if you have the courage to do it, you will enjoy it.

Learn from it. When you make a mistake, do you walk away from it or you learn from it? A mistake is not a mistake if you have the character to learn from it. If you don’t learn from your mistake, you will miss the opportunity to learn and grow. If you make a mistake, take a deep, deep breath to analyze it, to think about it. Ask yourself, what went wrong? Think about how to make it better next time. Note: Do not blame yourself. Celebrate yourself for making a mistake.

Forget it. When you make a mistake, don’t let it steal your happiness away. Admit that you made a mistake, learn from it, forget it, and move on.
