Choosing To Succeed

There will always be some obstacle, excuse, or distraction between you and your goals; but, choosing to be positive and insisting on rising above it can be the tool that will help you go beyond them. And the very thing that complicates the pursuit of your goals may also be a strength.

Make a conscious decision to abandon any anxiety or fear of failure and accept that success cannot be achieved without failure. Failure being not achieving your intended purpose.

Persist

With each attempt, you may become better at particular traits such as patience, the ability to communicate more effectively, or other valuable skills, but most importantly you will develop the desire to always learn.

Look at your limitations as stepping stones in the journey of achieving great success and fulfillment. It’s your responsibility to decide to rise above the obstacles that keep you from your goals.

Look Beyond Yourself

You can live a life that inspires others in pursuing their purpose in life. But first,  get out of your comfort zone.

To push beyond your own issues, be selfless, accept that change happens and decide not to be a victim of your circumstances and not to be left behind. Learn to appreciate the pains that may come with the process of evolution and the transition of becoming a more fulfilled human being.

Self-Efficacy

It means believing in your ability to perform a task and achieve goals. There are 3 ways to build self-efficacy:

  • Watch others succeed in the activity you want to try.  This is particularly effective if the person you're observing is similar to you (friends, neighbors, co-workers).
  • Find a supportive voice. Personal trainers and coaches are skilled in giving appropriate encouragement, as are good friends (usually).
Fundamentally Independent Thinking (FIT)

A fundamentally independent thinker understands that nothing makes a person upset, angry, or depressed; rather, what a person thinks about the world determines how they feel

Fear can harm you

In scuba diving, for instance, fear can cause you to breathe too fast, swim too hard, move too suddenly, fail to take note of your surroundings, or rise too quickly toward the surface.

Knowing that fear has the potential to harm you can help you set it aside. Fold up that fear, put it in a box, and promise you'll get back to it later at a less dangerous time.

Fear and chemicals

You may think it's your judgment deciding that something is dangerous and you should be afraid, but what actually happens is that fear chemicals are flooding into your brain.

Experiments have shown that fear can be induced artificially by injecting certain chemicals. Do the chemicals know what you should and shouldn't be afraid of? They don't. You do.
