Some people begin tasks with the attitude for failure. As soon as they’ve started the first step, they’ve already set their minds for disappointments. This is the idea of self-preservation for most people. If they think that being happy only makes you angrier when things don’t work your way, then they will go through life just plain miserable.
There is a definitive distinction between the attitudes of the successful versus the unsuccessful. Yes, things may not always work your way. They’ll be times that you can’t help but be disappointed with how things are turning out, especially when you’ve set yourself up to be all gung-ho about it. But isn’t life special that way? When you give it your all and come out successful at it, the delight that you’ll feel will be incomparable. Developing a winner's outlook is one of the most basic characteristics needed for achievement. Sadly, society ingrains in us to expect the worst yet hope for the best. This explains why most people live a life filled with frustration and misery.
A lot of the people do not want to take responsibility for the way their life has turned out. Some people learn at an early age to play the victim of fate. This allows them to absolve themselves of any accountability that comes as a repercussion of their choices. But then something good happens, and they immediately jump at the chance of taking credit. This allows us to feel somewhat emancipated by believing that the fault is not entirely theirs.
Your mind creates what it focuses on, and when you have nothing in it but negativity, reality will manifest it. So when you have a half hearted attitude towards what you do, you will never get the result that you want for the simple reason that your heart won’t be in it. The successful, on the other hand, take the repercussions head on. They face up to their responsibilities and believe that they can achieve most anything they desire if they just never give up.
Once winners decide to do something, it is only a matter of time before it actually happens. All hindrances are just measly tactics to delay them from reaching the end. If you want to become this successful individual, never think that you can never be the best, and the most you’ll achieve is the silver medal. Go for gold by seeing yourself through your decision. Stay calm and simply look at Plan B if the first try didn’t work. Believing that you will be successful even before it happens increases the likelihood that it will happen. Once you have set your goal, you must have the drive to reach it regardless of the obstacles. Set your priorities and make sure that you create a balance just so you have a healthy attitude towards everything.
You all have the potential to become winners, you just need to believe in yourself and be open to the chances that come your way. With the optimistic outlook in life, barriers are there merely to test your will and fortitude.
