I would like to share 3 basic principles with you that can help to improve your life and success journey. I have found that while there is no sure fire, secret formula for success, there are some basic thought processes and attitudes that will greatly increase your chances of succeeding.
So let’s get started-
1. Build it, don’t knock it! – Next time you are at work or just out and about, you will hear most people speaking negative and always criticizing or putting things or people down. In fact, most people have a hard time thinking or saying something positive as opposed to complain about it. Rather than speaking like everyone else, adopt the sense that you will be positive and speak positively about others and situations. I understand that things can go wrong or that people can be unkind, but don’t let it affect YOUR attitude of positivity. It is called having a Positive Mental Attitude!
2. Stick to it– Talk to anyone who has succeeded at a high level in anything and they will tell you that they just didn’t quit! It is imperative that you have a stick-to-it attitude when you are pursuing excellence. In addition to having a persistent attitude, you have to adopt a strong work ethic. Lazy people do not succeed or achieve a high level. Get off the couch and get to work!
3. Fail– Yes I said it..lol. Go out and fail and fail often. Failure is a means to the end when it comes to being better than average. Failure just to fail is not good unless you can learn something from it, but it is necessary to achieve. Most people think that if you fail it is like a grade you received in high school when you forgot to study or were not expecting that pop quiz. You either passed or failed. This system of points has brain washed most people and have blinded them to the fact that all successful people have failed. In fact the most successful people have only failed more than others! So get out there and fail- learn, but fail. Remember this: Failure is not the outcome, failure is not trying!
To Your Success!
