I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed. – Michael Jordan
Throughout life, you will have many chances at success. The fact of the matter is that you can’t be successful unless you make attempts to become successful. True success will be different for everybody, it’s up to you to define what that is. Each blog post is an attempt to help someone who needs motivation to reach their goals.
As you can see Michael Jordan had a goal and plan to become the best basketball player ever. And he failed over and over until be became successful. There are no limits to what you can do. Although you may fail several times it’s vital to learn what doesn’t work as well.
Set enough goals and you will fail enough. Fail enough and you will discover what works for you. Once you discover what works, you can focus on that task until you are uber successful.
Goals + Plans = Success
The key is to never quit and never let setbacks keep you back. Recover quickly from disappointments, it’s best to set new goals and plans to succeed. I have some new and exciting goals and plans that I can’t wait to execute. I’m ready to take this blog to the next level.

You are your own worst enemy, don’t defeat yourself.
“You’re nothing, and not good enough to accomplish what you’re thinking of doing. Just play it safe and do what you’ve been doing. Nobody will like your new ideas or this change in behavior. Who do you think you are? Do you want people to laugh at you? Trust me, I know you, you wouldn’t like doing that” – You
Look into the mirror and look squarely into your eyes. Take a deep breath and say, “You will not defeat me”. You are your own worst enemy. There is nobody on this planet that you communicate with more than yourself. Don’t worry that doesn’t make you crazy, we all do it. But sometimes we put ourselves down and sometimes we sabotage our own chances at success. Try these few steps to keep your alter ego at bay. Continue reading “How To Defeat Your Worst Enemy”
Know what’s important to you and live.
Before I breathe, let me think
Before I walk, let me crawl
Before I excel, there will be struggle
Before I cry, I must be hurt
Before I win, I’ll probably fail
Before I rise, I will fall
Before I die, I must be born
Before I die, I promise to live

You are the seed of your future.
It’s dark and I can’t see…..
I feel like I’m surrounded by dirt…….
Every now and then I’m fed water and I get stronger………
I feel like there’s hope because I can feel the sunlight and it makes me grow…….
Just when I was about to give up I finally break free! Freedom, and fresh air, and now the sky is the limit……

A brighter future starts today!

Let Go of all Your Mistakes.
This takes time but there is a way to let go off all the negative memories of your past. These memories are similar to bad tenants who have been evicted but are refusing to leave. You must take your strongest men and physically remove them from your mind. Write them down on a piece of paper, as if you are pouring them out of your mind. Now tear that paper to shreds and as you dispose of it, mentally, physically, and spiritually let go of those negative thoughts. (Sounds crazy but it works for some)

You can create your underdog story too.
I’ve been accumulating many skills in my field for this very moment. But at this very moment I am hanging by a thread and things don’t look good. Picture a fighter with a bruised face, swollen eyes, and blood streaming down his face. This is how I feel right now. I feel like giving up, begging my mind to throw in the towel, but it won’t.
During my lowest moment, I have a flashback. I think back to all the hard work that I’ve put in. I think about all the books and articles I’ve read. The pages of notes I’ve taken, and the hours of exercise that I’ve done. I think about my family and wife who are counting on me to win. My friends, and co-workers who have encouraged me, even if they didn’t know it. I think about my role models who have shown me that anything is possible. I think about all of these things, and then I snap.
Suddenly I’m the fighter who’s caught that second wind. No longer do I feel my opponents blows, but my opponent feels my counter punches. The tables have suddenly turned and I have the edge in this fight. I can hear my family, wife, friends and new friends cheering me on. I did not quit, I was losing but now I’m winning. All of my training and new skills have been triggered and I am a beast. I deliver the knockout punch and the fight is over. I am victorious.
You can be victorious too. Be the underdog of you’re life. When the odds are against you, keep fighting until you win. It’s not over, until you say it’s over.

Short motivational paragraph.
Having a winning mentality begins with the hard work that you put in to achieve your goals. As you begin to “check off” your small goals, you start to gain momentum. Momentum builds your confidence which leads to a winning mentality. Use this winning mentality, no matter how many setbacks you may come across, to turn dreams into reality. It is possible, and you can do it.
