I Havent Failed...I Just Havent Finished Yet
How many times do we fail at something, then attemp to justify that failure by saying "I knew I couldn't do it!". Perhaps, that was the very reason for the failure in the first place. One should never expect to succeed with a negative outlook. We must remain positive in all things. By giving in to a negative attitude, we set ourselves up to be a failure from the beginning.
The main cause of negativity is fear; fear of failure, fear of taking chances, fear of the unknown. It is also a sign of laziness. After all, it takes only a small amount of effort to say "I can't".
To be positive, on the other hand, takes a great deal of effort. One must be willing to learn new things, and to face challenges. We must learn to be strong, to accept criticism, because we will always face negative comments, often from family members or close friends who think they know what is in our best interest. Some people delight in the opportunity to say "I told you so." My favorite answer to the them is, "Wait, I'm not finished yet!"
Don't allow negative people to bring you down. Don't let the little setbacks discourage you and cause you to lose sight of your goals. All things come to an end...including the bad things; they too shall pass away. We must be willing to press forward and persevere until we reach our destination. If something doesn't pan out the first time, change your strategy. Analyze the reason why it didn't work and do it again from a different angle. Don't just TRY...do it! Try is a negative word. To say you will try is to say it will probably fail. Instead say, "Iwill do this".
I refuse to believe in luck. There is no such thing. It is only a fantasy, an illusion. Luck is for the dreamer not the doer. Success does not come without effort; and the degree of success is measured by the amount of effort we put forth. Nothing is ever achieved without a certain amount of effort on our part.
We can get out of bed in the morning and go to our closet to get dressed. We can stand there in our closet all day until evening comes, but unless we stretch out our hand and take the clothes from the hanger and put them on, we will be standing naked when night falls. The clothing simply will not jump from the hanger onto our body, no matter how long we wait nor how hard we wish. The same can be said for everything we attempt to do in this life. Nothing is accomplished without some degree of effort from us.
Whining about past failures is another road leading away from success. If we are always looking back, we miss what is before us. We might even miss that one opportunity that could take us to the top. It is for sure we can never be happy if we constantly dwell on the past. What happened yesterday is gone and will never come our way again; what is meant for tomorrow may or may not ever reach us, but today is ours to do with as we see fit and it is up to us to make each moment count. We can face it head on with a positive happy attitude or let it pass us by unnoticed. The choice is ours.
