What have you been thinking of achieving? Is there anything you have been longing to start? Save some money monthly for investment? Acquire some knowledge about entrepreneurship, self development, financial intelligence, goal setting etc? Is there anybody you need to meet for mentorship or have you been postponing making 'that' phone call?
Start today. Do it now. Go ahead right away. Not later and not tomorrow. Change your mindset. Shift your gear. Some times, getting started is difficult but once you summon enough courage to take the first step, the rest of the journey becomes a piece of cake. Refuse to accept failure. Refuse to accept that any move for improvement will be choked by thorns.
Your first major victory in life is to convince yourself that anything is possible. If you believe, once your mind can conceive it, you can achieve it. Against all odds, refuse to develop the attitude of impossibilities but that of possibilities. Change your thinking and fear of failure will take flight. In his book, 'The Mandrake Root', Machiavelli said,"Even though such hope may be fragile and vain, a man's desire and determination to accomplish a difficult task will blind him to chances of failure".
Even if you don't make it after a couple of trials, your failures will only prepare you for success. By repeatedly doing that which you are afraid of, fear looses its hold on you. Thus, the enabling environment for success is created.
The next logical step would be to develop a positive self conception accompanied with clear values, vision and ideals. If these are kept in proper perspective always, you will realize your self-worth while fear of failure is defeated in the process.
Failure starts from within (the mind).Do not permit the challenges life throw at you to get the better part of you. Refuse to focus on your problems always because you are likely to miss out on solutions that come your way.
