In my readings about the secrets of success, more often than not, I come across a message that reads: “Losers are not those who fail but those who do not bounce back after a failure.” Failures are bound to come by in our day-to-day endeavors. What, in fact, propels us forward, in spite of repeated failures, is the ‘desire’ to succeed. If we fail to ignite this small fire in our hearts, then our spirit to succeed wanes faster with each failure that comes our way.
With failures, you tend to breed negativism. Negative feelings yield adverse results. The longer you think negatively, the deeper you get addicted to it. And it tends to get worse if you happen to fail frequently. A cloud of gloom cripples your imagination and you see no way out. Eventually, you will give up. Right? So, how does one keep oneself moving ahead regardless of the number of failures one has experienced? I think, by letting the desire to succeed blossom in your heart. Then, how does one do that? Follow the path suggested below.
Ask Yourself Why You Want to Succeed: This is a crucial step. It gives you the sense of purpose in life and in what you want to achieve. It also acts as the motivational force that intensifies the desire to reach the set goal(s). Behind every goal, there must be a strong intention. If the intention is weak, the will power to achieve this will also be weak. You will not persist in your endeavor but quit in no time. So, keep the purpose of your goal(s) strong by repeating it to yourself time and time again. It can be fame, money, position, security or stability in life. Whatever it may be, keep it afresh in your mind.
Visualize Success: Visualizing success can give a boost to your desire. Visualize how it feels like being a successful person. Think of the life after you reach all your goals. This can be a driving force which gives you much needed fillip to surmount the obstacles that come your way.
As it is often said, “Where there is a will, there is a way.” So, let that will be strong – too strong to be eroded by any amount of adversity and success will be at your doorstep.
