Failing Forward

failingfwd

Some people think success is all smiles, and rewards but they couldn’t be more wrong. It takes hard work to achieve success. In fact, it wouldn’t be success if it was easy. No one gets an award for doing something easy unless it’s your parents wanting to encourage you. If you want success in life my friend, be willing to go through something hard. You should look forward to the hard times. That’s the only way to success. If you’re not ready to face difficulties, then you’re not ready for success.

Your attitude during repeated failures is everything. You need to have the mindset that you’re going to fail your way to success. Be willing to fail, learn, and retry. With that mindset you will fail forward. Don’t let it affect you emotionally how many times you’ve failed. The more you’ve failed, the closer you will be to success. Naysayers will doubt you but don’t let that hold you back. Use naysayers as extra motivation to get to your goals. A wise man once told me, a man with experience is more valuable than a man with an opinion. Remember that when naysayers want to give you advice to quit pursuing your goals and dreams after you’ve failed a couple of times. Their opinions don’t matter and failures give you experience.

Make sure you learn from your experiences and continue to get better. It takes time to master a craft. Believe in yourself and your work and know that one day you will figure it out. Only way you won’t is if you die too soon or you give up. Great things take time. Have patience and go through the process. The best thing about success is not what you get from when you succeed but it’s who you become in the process. Enjoy the process!

Self-Motivation

No one is going to come to your house and make your dreams come true. Stop hoping for a rich guy to make a donation to you. Stop hoping for a raise from your job. Stop hoping on a politician, food stamps and other government assistance programs.

Hoping doesn’t get you anywhere. Poor people hope. Hope is not a strategy. You need to have a plan. You need to have a vehicle to get you to your desired destination. When you want to go to Walmart, do you hope that you just end up at the store or do you get up and drive there?

Same thing with life. Define what you want in life. Find a vehicle to get there. And GET THERE!!!

When you’re driving somewhere, do you get discouraged and go back home because you got stopped at a red light?

NO.

Then stop doing that when it comes to pursuing your dreams. Get there no matter how long it takes! There will be obstacles, red lights and road blocks, but you keep going. There’s no straight path to success!

STOP WASTING YOUR TIME!!!

Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend. You can spend money and earn it back but not time. Once time is gone, you can never get it back. In order to live a meaningful life, it’s important to make the most of your time.

Are you making the most of yourself?

Are you where you want to be in life?

If not, STOP WASTING YOUR TIME and get you a copy of this book by Dr. M.E. Miller.

Moral Questions

If YOU can do better, should YOU?

If you think it’s okay not to strive for better if you can, do you believe that’s moral?

Most people are being pulled back by circumstances that cause them to settle for where they are. Those people say things like, “well this is really not too bad, I’m doing pretty good, my kids are okay, I just bought a new car or a new home, why should I try to conquer the world?”

People are always having that contest in their mind of whether they should do more or just be satisfied. If you’re at that point in your life, my advice is to make it a moral question.

Ask yourself:

If I could do better, should I?

If I could read more, should I?

If I could try more, should I?

If I could earn more, should I?

If I could bring more value to others, should I?

If I could start a business instead of working for someone, should I?

Jim Rohn said, “your philosophy is the major factor in how your life turns out.” If your philosophy tells you that it’s okay not to strive for more then ask yourself if that’s moral.

“The purpose of life is to live fully and have an ever expanding delightful life.” – Mark Victor Hansen

Would God be happy with you if he blessed you with the capabilities to do more but you decided not to?

Neglect

timeforaction

“Neglect is a major reason why people don’t have what they want. If you don’t take care of things in your life, neglect becomes a disease. If you neglect to do good things with your money, you probably neglect to do good things with your time. If you don’t know what’s going on with your health or your bank account, you could be at risk. Set up new principles to change your life. Don’t neglect.” – Jim Rohn

Action For Today:

  1. Identify your neglect
  2. Shake it from your life!

Neglect starts as an infection and becomes a disease. One neglect usually leads to another. Clean up all neglect and change your life for the better!

Foundation For Success

The reason most people don’t become successful is because they neglect to do the simple things.

If you want to be successful, CLEAN UP ALL NEGLECT.

Jim Rohn said, there’s usually about a half-dozen things that make 80% of the difference. Look for the few things that make the most difference and just do them repeatedly.

Here are the key points of this post:

  1. Find out what you need to do to be successful. (Boil it down to the most important things to get the results you want.)
  2. DO NOT NEGLECT TO DO THEM!!!

It’s easy to do something once you know what to do. But the problem is, most people can’t discipline themselves to follow through. Success is in the follow through. Success wouldn’t be success if it was attained instantly. There are a few things you must do and you have to discipline yourself to do them REPEATEDLY. For instance, when you decide to start going to the gym, you don’t instantly get in shape. You have to go and workout repeatedly in order to improve to lose weight or gain muscle. It’s not achieved on the first set or the first day. Only the ones who are disciplined to follow through on the daily grind are successful. The process is the same for anything else in life that you’re trying to be successful at.

Service and Meaning

teamwork-helping-hand

The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being. – Lee Iacocca

A proper legacy will always involve service and meaning. It has to have a meaning to yourself, others and a higher cause. Whatever you do won’t have any real meaning unless it’s in service of something greater than yourself.

Servicing others can be a sacrifice. You have to give up something. For some it might be their ego, money, or their time. But your real legacy is your service to others, a higher cause and fulfilling your purpose. It’s not just about making sure you and your family are alright. We’ve all been equipped with special gifts and talents. Our greatest fear shouldn’t be that we won’t succeed but that we succeed in something that don’t matter.

Now ask yourself, how can you be a service to others? What do you have that only you can do?

Leave a legacy that matters by helping people so they can be good instead of so you can look good.

“Whoever wants to be great must become a servant.” Mark 10:43 (MSG.)

The world defines greatness in terms of power, possessions, prestige, and position. If you can demand service from others, you’ve arrived. The Lord, however, measured greatness in terms of service, not status. God determines your greatness by how many people you serve, not how many people serve you!
