Fear robs many of us of success, we can understand the fear of failure and stop making these excuses that are robbing you of success.
We all have known people who have the knowledge, talent, resources, drive and determination, yet they fall short of achieving success.
Many times these people suffer from the fear of failure. They would rather suffer through the same daily routine (even if they hate it), than attempt something new. They would rather not try, than try and come up short, thereby never succeeding.
You will hear them utter these excuses:
“Its a dumb idea”
“This isn’t the right time to ________________.”
“I need to research this more before ______________.”
“I need to get some things in order before _____________”.
“I need to__________ have to _______ want to______ don’t want to____.”
One excuse after another about how they would but…..
Probably one of FDR’s most famous quotes is “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”
While I believe that to be true, I also believe something a mentor of mind told me many years ago.
He told me that “FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real” which I also believe and if 98% of the things we fear might happen never do, it seems a waste of time and energy to worry about them, after all, do you really thing worrying about the small percentage (2%) will prevent it?
Calvin Coolidge said, “Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
David Rockefeller said,” success in business requires training and discipline and hard work. But if you’re not frightened by these things, the opportunities are just as great today as they ever were.” I believe that still holds true.
It is important to start your day with positive, inspirational and motivational thoughts and ideas for you to excel and achieve success,
