RE: What If Your Success Was 'Locked-In' At The Moment Of Decision, WHAT Would You Do? WHO Would You Be?

in #success8 months ago

Some of us buy the books, watch the tutorials, attend the seminars, pay for the secrets and follow the gurus but just don't seem able to make any tangible progress, what is the deal here?

Let start with this, i have seen a lot of people sell success books, videos and audio just to attain a particular level of success not because they are successful themselves. It is like selling what you do not have so as to get what you want, thereby making the readers, viewers and listeners get the wrong steps procedures and strategy will results to no result. This is often the situation around, a person with no skills in hunting, writing a book on how to hunt so as to achieve monetary success. Buying such book will give me the wrong information but the person who wrote the book already achieved a level of success at the misery of another.

Could it be that from the outset we KNOW we are destined for failure?

Everybody has an atom of failure and success in them, in fact we fail more than we get things right but when we do get them right, the success overshadows the failure. So i could say that everyone is a successful failure or better still everyone is a failure that succeeded.

"Hey I could achieve that buff body I've always believed would be mine one day - Hell, I know I'm gonna fail but what the heck, let's go make a disastrous attempt at success anyway..."

You better die trying than not try at all. Not trying at all is a worse failure than trying and failing. As for the failure oriented words people will say, they do not have to be blamed. A lot of people have faced so many failures that their success were not noticeable to them and while trying to keep other people safe, they tend to pure out more of negative vibes to positive.

You realise of course that there are no cast-iron guarantees when it comes to success or the pursuit of something you do not currently have but you are gonna give it your very best shot.

I do not agree with you on this. There is an iron cast guarantee when pursuing success and that guarantee is failure. We need to understand that we are likely going to fail and in doing this, we will be prepared for the worst while facing the best of result expected.

WHO Would You Be?

An optimist, keyed to my goal, dream, world and plan, not worried about what might happen in the way or what people might say. I will face my fear, overcome my fear and achieve what ever level of success i can and furthermore build on my current success another success story so my failure story will be less significant to my success story.

Oh you are so, so right my friend. I have often said to those who know me, I would rather die in poverty and still be trying to achieve my dreams and still believing than to die wealthy whilst feeling bored and unfulfilled with nothing to reach for.

Some of the greatest successes in history looked to the outside world like failure, but this is subjective to each of us and often what looks like failure is actually a lesson, realisation or indeed actually success in a mask we did not expect it to be wearing!

These words could be an inscription at the entrance of some majestic place of learning for all to see, a mantra for life, a description of the way to live a good life in regard to those things we desire to achieve most of all BUT You write them in the spirit that I already acknowledged from your response. They are not to be read accompanied with gold-leaf and a fanfare of a thousand trumpets ,they are simply the words of your personal philosophy as you already stated you don't pay attention to what others may think or say, that is how to live a liberated life in my estimation.

Thank YOU so very much for taking the time to engage in such a wonderful way, it is incredibly satisfying and I am so very grateful! Take great care, keep enjoying the journey my friend :)
