It is very fulfilling and satisfactory to achieve success in whatever project we undertake in life. The feeling is even more awesome if you have once failed and have then had the guts to rise out of failure to achieve the success you have always wanted.
The ultimate wonderment of success is never seen in the accomplished output but resides deep in our hearts. Achieving success to some of us is to portray to others how thriving we are when it comes to whatever project we are working on but success goes beyond being seen as an accomplisher among your peers or certain group of persons.
Our want for success and greatness always leads us into chasing projects which we envisage as rewarding, thereby neglecting the imperative elements of our livelihood “Love, Belief & Passion”.
Success would have a more meaningful structure if it is not the sole reason why we embark on projects. Achieving success with any work done is satisfying, but it becomes “ultimate” when it naturally comes out of us doing what we love and believe in.
Many of us are successful with our jobs, holding the ultimate positions within our fields. This sounds like an absolute success and accomplishment, yet these achievements do not hold within our own hearts. Our hearts still feel empty since we have not achieved the ultimate success we desire.
Our inability to obtain the ultimate success we yearn despite our accomplishments is entrenched in our lack of passion, love and belief in what we are achieving or have achieved success within. Read more
“A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him”. David Brinkley
The diversity of mankind in our thoughts, attitude and way of life is what define us as unique individuals. However, no matter how distant our ideas and mindset about life seem to be from each other, there is always that common target point of “achieving success” in whatever direction we tread on in life.
We may seem to be walking in different paths of ambition and putting up unequal structures aimed at guiding us on these paths, yet, we are all heading towards a common goal of attaining “Success”.
The very fact that everyone one of us is working so hard towards a common focal point in life depicts the important and highly combustible nature of the point we are gravitating towards. Yes, the closer you get to success, the more difficult, stormy and fiery the path becomes. Read more
Many have come to recognise and accept that the greatest enemy of mankind is our own minds personified by the fear of failure. Even the strongest minds of our time cannot swank of there not being a single time where the fear of failure has curtailed their thoughts on achieving that which they believe in.
The fear of failure is a natural disease living with the human mind. Its precincts are not restricted and can far stretch to affect anything we set our minds on to achieve. It strikes like an authoritative thunder which sets out in a clear light what would happen should you fail on a desire journey of progress.
As if you are not already aware, you would constantly be reminded of the fact that the money you holding in pursuit of your investment is not yours. And you would be in deep anguish should something goes wrong which is highly likely to happen, the fear of failure would tell your mind. Read more
As much as most people have ambitions and that which they desire to achieve in life, most of our ambitions and aspirations continue to remain unachievable through our journey in life.
Many individuals have dreams and have popularized themselves with just having dreams. Achieving these dreams would never come to pass as there is no vigorous effort towards realizing these dreams.
The concept of having a dream is just enough for certain individuals, be it that the dream is achievable or not is out of their contemplation. I have dreams and regards for dreams, but just having it is never enough for me since every individual can have the same or even galloping dreams. Read more
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
The above quotation from the American humorist, writer and lecturer who lived from 1835-1910 can be brought in line with another power saying by Helen Keller. Keller said, among other things that, ‘Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all…’
As we nurture our way through life, there are so many things we desire to do for ourselves, friends and family. Most of these things are never done or given a pursuit owning to several forces such as the fear of failure, procrastination and fear of stepping out of our comfort zone. Read more
