Surviving Setbacks to Your Success

Surviving Setbacks to Your Success

Now that we’ve covered a few of the essential strategies for unlocking your full potential and living your best life, it’s important to clear your head and your life of anything holding you back, and instead fill them with things that will take you forward. Below are some ideas you can focus on to prime yourself for success.

Remember that youre worthy of success

Even when some people are following all the right steps, their confidence holds them back. They don’t really believe that they deserve success or that they’re good enough at what they do to have it.
You need to remember that everyone is on a journey, and everyone feels like an imposter at some times. No one really feels like they have everything under complete control. If you had the opportunity to hear the thoughts of a highly successful person throughout their lifetime, you would probably have heard the words: “Who am I to do this?” at some point. These doubts are natural and part of the human experience, and no one is immune to them.
Worse than this, all of these people have been criticized by others and told that they were worthless, bad or damaged. Successful performers like Fred Astaire, Elvis Presley and Sidney Poitier were all told at some point that they were bad at what they did. Poitier was told by the casting director after his first acting audition, “Why don’t you stop wasting people’s time and go out and become a dishwasher or something?” If these people had given up after these messages, or listened to these voices telling them that they were not good enough, they would never be the successes that they became.
The key is to move past this type of negative thinking and to ignore messages that you’re not worthy of what you want. You need to remember that there’s nothing different about you than anyone else who achieved great things. There’s nothing inherently wrong or damaged about you that is holding you back from living up to your potential. You can have everything you want, and you deserve to have these things.
Keep reminding yourself often that you’re worthy of real success and that you’re good enough. And keep working at improving every day so that you can silence those people who criticize you.

Hold on to your dreams in the hard times

Being patient is one of the most important ingredients to success. Success almost definitely won’t come on your first try. Probably not on your second, third, fourth or fifth either. But eventually, if you keep on working at it, you’ll find that you’ve reached great heights. For some it takes only a year, but for most it takes at least five or even ten. But those who persevere are usually richly rewarded.
Most people who get there say that they’re actually grateful for the bumps in the road, because it helped them to keep on working hard and improve themselves along the way. If things came easy, you wouldn’t be forced to be your best in order to get them. The accomplishments wouldn’t mean as much to you.
Be tenacious in the face of obstacles. Be unflinching in your resolve. Keep your eyes on the life of your dreams.
Even if it doesn’t work out for a long time, if you are continuously making the effort to get better, being innovative and putting yourself out there, success will come. In one form or another. Believe this and hold on to it when you reach a period of struggle. And remember that every single person who came before you on the road to success had to face their own obstacles and had to be patient for it too.
Robert T. Kiyosaki said: “Winners are not afraid of losing. But losers are. Failure is part of the process of success. People who avoid failure also avoid success.”

Eat, sleep and breathe success

Surround yourself with success and with symbols of your success. Expose yourself to constant reminders of where you want to be, and make plans accordingly. Don’t entertain the possibility that you are destined for failure. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted from what you want to do with your life.
Those who achieve success are those who live a lifestyle of success. It’s a shift that needs to take place from the inside out. Get your mind into a place of success by reading and learning about it constantly. Immerse yourself deeply in the life you really want.
If you want to be a writer, write. If you want to be a businessman, start your business. The more you live this life, the more it becomes who you are.
