Don't fail before you even begin!

If you think you cannot, you cannot

Not my quote, just one that I happen to like. I don't know about you but I hate it when people tell me I cannot do something, or that something is not going to work. Hey buddy, keep your negativity to yourself. I would rather try and fail than not do anything at all because at least I learn something new or meet someone new in the attempt.

    Well said.

    You never know what you can achieve unless you just do it.

        All the constant chatter and questions in our head, make us so scared and stop us from even starting something. No start means no result. It also means that there is no bad result and we won't look bad in front of others. We worry way too much about what others think of us.

    But what about needing help in some stuff, you can get positive response as well as negative response. It really up to you take that advice or not. I agree on this we should try......

      I think he's referring to negative thoughts or words from people who have no idea about what he's trying to accomplish. It's true that you can get positive and negative feedback, but that's valuable if it's coming from someone who's actually in the trenches, so to speak. If it's just Joe from the pool hall who never did anything worthwhile, you can probably discount that.

        Good post! Negative thoughts can be ruinous to an Internet Marketer. I think the key is to just let go of the thought of failure and just TAKE ACTION!

    "Determination and self confidence is the key to success". Rightly quoted by Booker T. Washington. We can do almost everything, we just need a start.

    For anyone wondering, that quote is from Henry Ford :-)

    If you're not sure who that is ...

    Well, take another look at his name and take a wild guess as to what car he was the manufacturer of? ;-)

    "The number one problem that keeps people from winning...is lack of belief in themselves" ~ A.L. Williams

    The belief systems you have construct your reality - they are literally hard wired in your brain. The more you focus on a positive belief you have adopted, the more your body & mind connects with the thought making it your reality. Mind blowing!

  • It actually goes: ""Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right." I like this wording as it forces you to think about it a little bit before it makes sense.

    Here's another from the great man: "Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young."

    I have a link to loads more, and they're really good, but I can't post links yet because I'm a newbie. Won't be long though, and I'll post it up.

    I think it depends on wether you want to have a try or not!


    even though I may fail,
    it doesn't matter,
    I want to have a try

    So true. If we lack faith in our abilities, the likelihood of failing is pretty high.

    But, if we forge ahead, despite ...we'll gain a lot even when we ''fail''. I agree, it's more honorable to try and gain some insights and new friends (or foes)...than sit back, crippled by fear.

    Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.

    I love this quote so much. Just keep pushing forward until you got your reward.

    Greatly said Flowbee. Giving something a try can make huge changes in life. Hence we should not say"no" or "I cannot" even before knowing and and giving it a try. At times golden opportunities come in disguise of "apparent criticality and toughness". If we take a little initiative to cultivate it, perhaps we would be able to do magics. Bolloywood star Amitabh bachhan was first selected to act in Slum Dog Millionaire but he declined the offer saying that he had some other jobs finally Anil kapoor, another 80-90s hero took the offer and the movie own Oscar in so many categories!! Mr. should have considered the prospect of the film by going through it's storyline.
