Every time you fall, you are given a choice. You can either stay down and not chance falling again or learn how to stand and move towards success. The only one who decides if you fail is you. Life is a test on whether or not you can overcome this personal illusion of failure.
Were you built to last?: What would you do if someone told you that you wouldn't make it. What have you done in the past when others have doubted you? If you want it bad enough, you will find a way. What kind of stories do you want to be able to reflect on? You are as great as you want to be. Years from now you will be upset about the things that you didn't do, rather than the things you did. Give yourself your own pep talk to start the morning. Don't allow yourself to live with regret. Mistakes are the world’s way of letting victories be experienced to their fullest. Give every day all that you can, and you will set yourself up for continued growth.
Don’t just “get by”: Take every problem as a challenge and create an opportunity out of it. Success in life can never be an accident. It is the result of right decisions at the right time. Stand up for yourself, and be proud of the inputs. No one can take that away from you. Champions are not the people who never fail but the people who never quit. The road to success is never clear cut and dry. If it was easy, everybody would encounter it. Everyone wants to be successful, but how many NEED to be.
Say yes when others say no: What do you want people to remember about you, what kind of impression? It all comes back, it all potentially propels you in your future career. You are better today than you were yesterday. You rise while others sleep. You do what others will not. You refuse to have any zero days. You are intense, obsessed and NOT normal. You walk away giving it everything you have. You take rejection as an inspiration to strive harder. You are on a quest, don’t ever stop. Lack of will is the biggest change agent in someone’s success.
