When you have spent your life striving to achieve a certain level of success you want to make sure that you don’t give in to the temptations that will invariably come your way to deter you from your path. Many people who should have achieved lasting success find themselves dancing around a sea of failure because they did not do what is necessary to make success last.
What is necessary? To develop a determination inside that will not be stopped by any internal or external force which tell you that success is not only yours to attain but to keep. To have success that lasts we must overcome every obstacle that shouts to us “it is not so”.
What are some of the things that can stop you from becoming a success;
• Negative Attitude- your mind is both your greatest ally and your greatest enemy. As a man thinks so shall he be being an age-old expression which sums up the power of the mind. If you think you can and if you think you can’t, you are right. What do you believe about yourself and your situation? What do you see yourself being able to do? Are you a person who sees the cup as half full or half empty? So much of our life is dictated by the attitudes we adopt on a daily basis. A negative person reasons within their mind that failure is inevitable, and it would be unwise to think things will be better. A positive person looks at the possibilities of a situation and feels like they can conquer the world. What do these two-different people have in common? Whichever attitude you adopt will be the attitude that determines where you will focus your attention and resources. Choose a positive attitude.
• Negative People – you are judged by the company you keep. If your closest circle of people is negative in their speech and behavior you are in for a rough ride. These people will exercise influence over your thoughts and help you form your opinions. Conversely if you are surrounded by positively thinking people then your thoughts and opinions will come from a positive viewpoint. No one has ever missed having an encouraging word while striving to be a success. Choose positive people.
• Erroneous Perspectives – there is a concept in logical thinking that “if you start off with wrong thinking it’s hard to end up on a correct path.” When we begin thinking we can never become successful or we don’t deserve success then it hard to end up believing we should have success. Looking at life through correct lenses is key to seeing that success does not belong to a certain gender or race or educated person; anyone can succeed if they truly want to and learn to step into opportunities.
