Have you not wondered how the same time you thought was sufficiently at your disposal at some point, suddenly became an eleventh hour moment? Or you end a day wishing you had 25hrs to work with instead of 24hrs because you could not complete your objective? Time is never enough for people who don’t know how to manage time. But today I’m here for the persons who think they just can’t do one thing right without failure and so they become so afraid to even start anything.
I understand where you’re coming from. You have a supposedly perfect mental strategy for achieving success, but when it comes to executing it in reality it ends up being a mess. Then you play the blame card. Well, it’s time you stopped playing yourself and start playing your cards right.
What I’m talking about here might be related to your career, relationship, spiritual things etc. You may even console yourself with the belief that you were just not born to excel like some people. Stop there! No one is born a failure. It all depends on what we make of ourselves after being born. I have been on this research about why people fail and I can tell you one of the main reasons for failure is lack of consistency & courage. We always want to be graded excellent at our first try, forgetting that mistake was made for humans and not for plants, and when we fail the first time the zeal for whatever it is dies and we quickly deviate to an easier task because we don’t want to be labeled a failure.
Do you actually know that the people we see as success today had times in their lives when they thought they couldn’t make it? But with courage, consistency, determination & having the right people around, they were able to do it. My friend, just because something didn’t work for someone you know doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work for you, and because you tried it the first time and it didn’t appear as you had pictured doesn’t mean the second time wouldn’t be better. I don’t know who is about to give up on that dream of yours, or that relationship or career, but all I want you to know is don’t ever give up!.
Sometimes it’s not the game that needs to be changed but how we play the game. You having a dream to be something better isn’t bad, but giving up after trying the only a few times is failure already. Keep pushing. Be sure what you are doing is a good thing. The first step to take is to call on God for help, then you need to also help yourself by being consistent, determined, courageous and most importantly surround yourself with positive-thinking people. Remember, If you can’t stop thinking about it, then don’t stop working for it! Have that passion in you to be great! I see you doing great things!
