// Zero Fail Option
What if you couldn’t fail? What if failure wasn’t an option? What would you do?
The harsh truth is that some who venture to seek their dreams are often not well equipped with the right mind set from the start. This is why what I’m about to reveal is ultra important in your overall plans. Do not accept any other option besides success.
Victory is gained as part of focus, hard work, and dedication. Let’s take a closer look at these essentials.
Focus: “Keep your eyes on the prize”. Keep your focus on what is important to accomplishing your goals. It is very easy to let doubt and negativity seep in and even harder to keep it out once it’s in! There are often times in life when the so called “easy route” is within grasp and giving up seems logical. There’s nothing logical about accepting failure. It wasn’t apart of your original plans and there is no benefit in giving up.
Why give up?: Maybe some friends, family, or outsiders question you or your plans and it’s easier to conform than to ignore. What’s even worse is when you start to agree with them. Well the truth is that they may not share your same vision and therefore will not have the same faith that you have in your plans. Some of the most revolutionary people the world has ever seen ignored the critics. What would have happened if Henry Ford (Ford Motor Company) listened to his critics on selling a motorized carriage to the masses? What would have happened if President Obama listened to the criticsism of him trying to become the first African-American President in the history of the U.S.A.? See what I mean? I could go on and on and on, but I think you get the point. They kept on because they had a plan and they stuck to it, not listening to those who would try to derail those plans with negativity. Stay focused!
Hard Work: Make no mistake that most anything worth getting is worth paying for. Success is more often than not the result of long hours, days, and years of blood sweat and tears. The culmination of your hard work and determination is what determines the level of your success, and you have to be able to put in the time it takes to get to where you want to be. In any venture always consider the fact that you will have to work and work hard for it. Everything has a price, just ask those who’ve already attained success and see what price they paid for their success. What price are you willing to pay to achieve what you want?
Dedication: Dedication to what you want to accomplish is ultimately a key ingredient to your level of success. There will inevitably be ups and downs in any venture and you must be able to stay level headed and dedicated to making your vision a reality. Like the captain of a ship you must stay the course with absolute certainty that you will arrive at your destination. There will be distractions, people, events, etc. that will try to pull you away from your path. When those opportunities for straying arise ask yourself if what you’re doing is getting you closer or farther to what you want?
Now, given the formula above, what would you do if failure was not an option?
What “Zero Fail” plans would you make?
Have a great Monday…
