This isn’t true of successful people.
They will spend even more time reflecting on what they have already accomplished and on how they are capable of achieving what they now aspire to.
Its all too easy to put off doing something because some event now means everything is not perfectly lined up.
John Wooden, a football coach once said, ‘Things turn out best, for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.’ When you pursue a your dream, you can be sure that things will get rough at times. This is where preparation is invaluable. And the greatest preparation you can make is to ensure you have addressed the way you think.
There are disparities between successful and unsuccessful people. And the greatest gap is in the way they think. Only those who think right succeed.
This is particularly the case when it comes to disappointment and failure. Whereas most people will take these events as real setbacks, successful people see them as a regular part of the journey to success and will get over it. This tenacity only comes from their thinking. This ‘right thinking’ is the hallmark of all successful people. They try, they learn, and and they keep moving forward. They have won the battle in their minds, and it overflows into what they do.
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” Mark Victor Hansen.
