Failure can lead to success and lead to more failures; it all depends on how you take it.
Life will always throw difficult moments and challenges at us, and it’s only those who are willing to fight, will get their breakthroughs. The fact you fail currently doesn’t mean you would fail tomorrow; however your actions can predict how long you’ll continue to fail.
So many great successes have been born out of failure and so many failures have been extraordinarily consistent; this shows that failure isn’t really the problem, but your attitude towards failing.
These six kinds of people below have a terrible attitude towards handling failure:
1. The ones who think they can’t
The ones who think they can’t make it, and who believe it’s just impossible have already made it easy for themselves to fail. Failure first starts in the mind, and when the mind is geared up to fail, there’s nothing the body can do about it.
2. The ones who believe they need the help of someone
There are people who see themselves as nothing and who believe they need connections to make it in life. These ones could wait for the rest of their lives for connections that aren’t forthcoming. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.
3. The ones who are too lazy to work their way up to the top
There are those who are very lazy to work for what they want; they always want the easy way out and look for shortcuts in all they do. But there’s no shortcut to legitimate success.
4. People who always complain about their circumstances
People who always complain about the circumstances they find themselves will be too blind to notice opportunities when they come knocking. The time spent complaining will add value if it’s geared towards improving that situation. Besides, complaining wouldn’t solve a thing.
5. People who desire to be pitied
People who want the pity and envy of others will get it. When you choose to be pitied, that’s what you’ll get and nothing more. So make a decision to choose between being pitied and striving to achieve that which you want.
6. People who are okay with their present situation
Once you are okay with a certain point — that will be the highest point you can get; you’ll never surpass that point. Once you get comfortable with your present situation, you’ll never get beyond that.
Do you belong to any of these categories? The time to make a change is now.
