As we all know life has its own ups and downs. It can be very easy to get shifted off balance by circumstances and situations. The secret to success is how you interpret and learn from these situations. One of the greatest things in life is that you are what you think. You’re able to create your own destiny simply by the things you think about. If you expect to fail then guess what? That’s what you’re going to do. And if you have the absolute confidence that you’re going to succeed then whatever ups and downs you experience you’ll interpret them as learning curves to your eventual success.
Some people may start spiraling downwards when they get into a down cycle. Suddenly everything they see or touch turns to shit. Some people go out there and self-sabotage their own efforts because subconsciously they feel they don’t deserve it. You need to examine your own expectancy and determine if that is what you think, or is it what you were told to think? Reality is in the moment and everything else is your interpretation of that reality. Once the moment has passed, you can both hold on to the hurt and let it continue to hurt you, or you can realize that the hurt of the moment has passed and that is your choice whether you let it affect you.
The best revenge is doing well for yourself. Don’t hold on to anger and animosity toward someone because that will bring more negativity to you. Focus on doing well in your own life. It all comes down to what it is that you allow to influence you in your life. If negative things influence your life, you get negative results. It’s ultimate up to you and no one else. Develop the attitude “if it’s going to be, it’s up to me”. This is the first step to taking control of your own lives. Take responsibility for your actions. That means success or failure is a direct result of what you do or don’t do. There are no magic pills you can take that you will make you take responsibility, you have to take it yourself. You have to take the responsibility of the outcomes of your actions.
Make the decision and stick to it that you’re responsible for everything in your life. If you’re one of those wishy washy types in doing anything, you’ll be influence by the first obstacle that you encounter. If you find that conviction and purpose can be a hard thing to establish and if you’re plagued with doubts, then you’re going to find trouble all through your life. It’s time to raise up in the world. And that’s done by taking responsibility for your own life. Success doesn’t mean wealth and fortune. It means finding what you love to do and living your life with a passion. When you do that the money will come. Find what you’re passionate about and what your purpose is.
