This post will be straight to the point. I think it’s necessary to get the facts, and I can later go into more detail.
The truth is, when we don’t find success it is almost always our own fault, like 99% of the time.
I don’t say that to seem negative; I say it because it’s true.
Let me explain, the only real “competition” is you v you.
If you want something, I mean reaaally want something, you WILL go after it with all you’ve got.
I’m talking about the kind of want where it’s almost a need. The kind of want where not pursuing it would almost be a life not worth living.
This kind of want/dream is not for the faint of heart. It’s for those with extreme TENACITY.
It takes discipline, thick skin, perseverance, self-love to go after your against the odds “dream”.
Don’t listen to other people’s opinion.
This is about trial and error.
Yes, of course you can listen to those who’ve already done what you wish to do, but don’t listen to the random humans who are just talking to talk but have nothing to show for it.
It’s human to be afraid.
Fear will definitely be there all throughout this journey.
It’ll be trying to pull you down every step of the way.
Every time fear creeps in, give it a wink and say “I see you, but you have no power over me. I am worthy of my dreams and will do whatever it takes to get them” (whatever it takes within your morals, of course).
Keep Marching On
People are constantly tearing you down, telling you that you aren’t good enough? Keep marching on.
Their words can’t stop you.
Sure, you may take a moment to hear what they have to say, but you’ve got to have the courage and enough self-love to say “this is not serving me” and keep marching on.
Be Child-like in Your Journey
A child makes mistake after mistake, trying again and again and again.
As we get older we let fear, shame, and doubt creep in, and we stop allowing ourselves the room to make mistake after mistake.
You guys! Where’s the fun in that!
Absolutely NOTHING will get accomplished if you let fear of failure take over.
Fail 9 times, get up 10.
Obsession can be a good thing.
If you want this thing like you say you do, you will be OBSESSED in pursuit of it.
When fear starts to walk back in, you almost won’t even notice it because you know it only holds the power that you give it.
When you’re obsessed with your dream you are UNSTOPPABLE.
Edison said –
I didn’t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.
We can do this you guys.
Love & light,
