The race to become effective is one many of us are on. There are numerous obstacles and obstructions we should deal with to arrive but the objective is constantly the very same; Huge Achievement. For many that objective never comes true.
Why? Since success has enemies. Anything rewarding will need focus, devotion and determination to come true. In addition to these qualities we must also prepare to do battle with the enemy of success. It has numerous faces but just one goal: mediocrity.
Here are some typical and hard to beat opponents of success;
• & bull; Unfavorable Mentality – whatever the mind can conceive and believe it will attain. A positive mindset sets you up for success. You seem like the whole world is under your feet and nothing is too hard for you. Alternatively if you have a negative mentality then you seem like the whole world is on top of you and no matter what you do there is no way of escape. To become the success, you were destined to be you should eliminate negative ideas and change them with thoughts about how all things are possible because you believe in yourself.
• & bull; Defeatist Mindset – when we face challenges that take us out our attitude can go from “ideal up my street” to “why the heck did I attempt this in the first place?” We second think our intents, actions and motives. To prevent a defeatist attitude from sinking in remind yourself that the only thing that can fail is a shot. You are not a failure due to the fact that you attempted something that didn’t work; you fail if you decline to get up after being knocked down. When struck 7 times all you need to do to win is get up 8.
• & bull; Mediocrity – mediocrity is to success what good is to fantastic. When we perform at an average level it’s not that we have actually failed; we just didn’t prosper greatly. Its average, simply enough to manage however not fantastic. How do we go from well (average) to fantastic (success)? Strive to live at your potential. Don’t settle from just getting by or getting over. Make every effort to obliterate your obstacles, climb to the top instead of stopping on the way up and provide over 100% into everything you are involved with.
• & bull; Opting for winning a battle rather of winning the war – much like being mediocre we must focus on getting rid of the war not simply winning a couple of fights. For example, if you are an alcoholic and you want to stop drinking you can go an entire day with no liquor and be happy. But to think you have defeated alcoholism with 1 day of not drinking is winning a fight for the day but losing the war. Battle to win wars, not fights.
Be prepared to win. Be prepared to be successful. And stand versus any enemy that stands in your method.
