Failure before success
Tuesday 6th August 2017
Over the years most successful people I’ve met have failed before succeeding. I’ve found that failure to understand and adapt to change is one of the main contributory factors and causes of all personal failure and defeats. There is no one I have ever known become more successful without wanting and indeed needing to change for the better.
Success in life as well as in business requires constant re-appraisal, change and development; it should always be treated as “a work in progress”. Therefore, the past must be erased, it’s gone, there’s nothing you can do about it, so it needs to be forgotten and discarded completely. Your future should be worked at and you should start planning where you want to go and how you intend to reach it. You need to start anticipating where the direction of the change will be coming from. However, far more importantly, which direction you are likely to be going in.?
Then you should grasp fully and with open arms the change and by taking full advantage of it, you must learn to handle and manage change, to harness, manage it and then to use it to your best advantage. You must learn to visualise change and deal with it, through visualisation and your imagination.
You should: –
- Plan your future
- Plan your targets
- Plan your goals
- Change your attitude
You need to organise yourself and adapt to a different forward-thinking prospect of life. Start to seek positive goals. Unless you do, you will wander through life constantly going around in circles always “achieving second best“. If you want to be the best, you need to “Plan your Future, set your Targets and Aim for those Goals”. Climb the ladder of success and “Be the best”. To be a success in life today, you must decide from “day one”, to work hard to succeed. I’ve found over the years that I’ve been running my own businesses that there are two words in the English language that are of paramount importance and need to be kept to the forefront of our minds all the time, they are “Work and Kiss”.
I have always noticed that when your attitude toward the product or service you’re marketing or selling is branded well and looks spot-on; it becomes self-perpetuating. Once you’ve got the ball rolling and providing you look after your customers and prospective clients very carefully it should never stop. To make a success in any industry or walk of life and to gain the respect of others as well as being successful you should be always meeting and mixing with like-minded people. People who only want to become successful and like you, have “The Will to Want to Succeed”, especially if they truly believe that duplication is possible as well.
Seven months have now passed in 2017. Is your 2017 plan working out or do you need to refresh it?
