How to Talk Yourself Into Success
You've tried and failed. You've watched others fall. You're wiped out, burned out, and beaten. Is there any way to turn it all around?
If you're reading this, than likely you have been working very hard at realizing a goal that now seems out of reach. It does not matter whether that goal is related to diet, creating a home business, getting a promotion, finishing a difficult course, or mastering a talent. The one common factor is that our past can, and will, affect our future success.
So, if nothing has worked, shouldn't you throw in the towel? Learn from your mistakes and quit while you're ahead?
Think of this: What's Possible?
Why say Possible?
Motivational speaker, Les Brown, shares an interesting lesson with us when he points out that past perceptions influence our projected images of success or failure. Consider what changes can be made when you see that others before you have conquered the same battles, and same fears, and created a successful outcome. And consider that if it was possible for them, than it IS possible. Period.
Before Roger Bannister, NO one believed the 4 minute mile barrier could be broken. SINCE his record was set, 20,000 individuals, including high school students, have broken the 4 minute mile. Why? Now, it was possible.
Do all the so called 'success' stories ensure that you too will follow the same path to fame, fortune or health? Well, reason will tell us that no two individuals will have identical results in life. But recognizing the importance of accepting possibility can mean the difference between success and failure.
So look around you. Read the stories of those you admire. Emulate their qualities, strategies or attitudes. And remember everyday that it was possible. That it IS POSSIBLE.
