1. GIVE UP the fear of failure.. You want to be successful?
Fear is the barrier, and fearing failure just adds a huge, unnecessary wall that blocks you from your happiness, self-fulfillment, personal growth, opportunities, and worst of all, your dreams.. When you fear failure, all you’re doing is setting yourself up to fail. I used to be terrified to fail. I used to be so scared of it that I wouldn’t even begin the things I wanted to begin. The thought of working hard for something day in and day out, not having it work out, was my biggest fear.
But, instead of being afraid and have that fear hold me back I decided to look at it differently. First of all, I noticed that I was creating that fear in my own head. I was worried about something that was not even happening in the physical world, just in my mind. So, it was imaginary. Then I noticed every single time I “failed” at something, I learned from it and it guided me to something greater. It helped me grow and become the person I am today. I was not failing, I was learning. Failure was not a barrier, it was a guiding force.
Successful celebrities like Michael Jordan, Walt Disney, the Beatles, Oprah, Einstein, Steve Jobs failed dozens of times on their paths to success. But, they were not failures because they chose to get back up and keep going no matter what. And clearly it worked out for them! So, understand that failing is necessary to achieve the life you want. Don’t worry about failing, and taking a risk. Go ahead and follow your dreams! And if you’re lucky enough to fail because you were brave enough to try, learn from it, build strength from it, and carry that with you to the next level.
“I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” –Thomas Edison
2. GIVE UP the idea that you do not control your destiny. You want to be successful?
You are in control of your life. Your future is in your hands, and what you do today matters. You have the canvas to create the life you want. In the past I didn’t believe that I was in control of my life. I didn’t see the strength and the power I had within myself. So, I was living a life that I wasn’t too proud of. And I was blaming external forces for my circumstances. I was blaming everyone and everything, but me.
One day, for the first time ever, I started looking within myself. I started blaming myself for the things I did not want, and that changed everything. When I realized that I was in control of my destiny and my future, I noticed how much time I had wasted believing otherwise. Everything is in your hands. The results you are getting are the results you deserve, once you deserve more you will get more. Know it, believe it, and take action towards it.
“The future depends on what you do today.” –Mahatma Ghandi
3. GIVE UP the idea that you’re not good enough. You want to be successful?
You can do anything if you truly want it. There is greatness inside of you waiting to be unleashed. Confidence in your abilities and positive self-talk are the keys to your life achievements and growth. One affirmative thought that you truly believe about yourself is all you need, to unlock your desires and become unstoppable.
So, convince yourself that you are good enough. Maybe you need to change the way you run your life to do so? but once you do believe you will be capable of achieving anything you want in life. The only thing that is holding you back your doubts. All you need is that strength from within, to get the things you want in life. Every single day please tell yourself I can, because in time you will find out that it is true.
“You are what you believe yourself to be.” –Paulo Coelho
4) GIVE UP your excuses. You want to be successful?
Excuses are just that… excuses. Before I started my YouTube channel I would always tell myself excuses of how I couldn’t follow my dreams. I would tell myself, “I have no time, I have no resources, it’s too hard, it will just come to me if it’s meant to be, it’s too late”… the list goes on and on. And if you’re anything like I used to be, please let them go because excuses, and I promise you, will get you nowhere. So, you have to decide that you are just going to drop all excuses and no longer accept any excuse that come to mind. And that is true power.
So, when I no longer accepted those excuses, I would keep telling myself over and over, I started acting upon my desires. Excuses didn’t stop me from following my dreams, I stopped them from hindering my desires. Start with what you have, start with where you are, and start today. I promise you that you will find a way if you just keep going. If you work hard, and believe. Keep those excuses for the other 99% that are too meek to believe in themselves.
“If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.” –Ryan Blair
5. GIVE UP the idea that it’s impossible. You want to be successful?
I am going to keep this simple. Anything that you set your mind to is possible. I don’t care what anyone says or thinks; I truly believe that. The word impossible should be stricken from the English language. Nothing is impossible through hard work, dedication, persistence, faith, and passion. People will bring you down, and people will always try to convince you that it can’t be done. But, you have to believe in yourself and your abilities.
How did the Wright brothers invent the aeroplane before it was even fathomed to be possible? It all started with a vision. They held that vision in their mind and brought it to reality through unstoppable faith, gut-wrenching hard work and non-stop persistence. And you’re telling me that your vision, and your dreams can’t be achieved? You think anyone believed that it was possible to have something fly through the air faster than any vehicle or animal on the ground, before it happened? There is true magic when you believe. The only limitation is the one that you hold in your mind. The sky is the limit. No matter how far fetched it is or how hard it seems, just know that it’s possible.
“Impossible is nothing.” –Muhammad Ali
