How to Stop Failing Before You Start
Frequently I will encounter people that are failing before they start. What does that mean?
It comes in the form of skepticism, disbelief and/or general half effort. Like saying, “I don’t really think that this is going to work, but I’ll try it just to see if it does”. Anything that begins this way is destined to flop and when it does, the person will easily self justify because they didn’t think it was going to work in the first place.
I call it a bad attitude and basically it comes down to mindset.
Do you operate on determination and faith? It’s important that you do, because this is vital to your success.
Determination gives you the willpower to continue and push through with what you’ve started and find the way to make it work rather than quitting at the first sign of a roadblock. Faith assures you that what you are doing is going to work and that it is worth the effort.
Next time you start something ask yourself, “Am I going to do what it takes to see this through and is my target result worth the effort?” If not, then don’t even start, but once you’ve answered yes, then go and DO!
