Power Life secrets #5

Overcoming Failures with the Right Mindset

Many people scoff at the power of the mind to influence circumstances but every achievement you make in life begins, first and foremost, in the mind. If you constantly dwell on past failures and berate yourself, it's like conditioning yourself to always fail.

 How can you achieve success, if you cannot even see yourself succeeding?


The journey towards success will not exactly be smooth. You will encounter roadblocks along the way that will discourage you from moving forward, and at that point you will have to make a choice to go on or give up.

In your journey there will be not just one but countless struggles along the way. It will be truly impossible if you are weak and give up at the first sign of a problem but everything becomes possible, if you only believe it to be possible. Your attitude will provide you with enough fuel to move on and fight through it all. Consider each road block a stepping stone that will lead you to ever higher levels of success.

Make your own luck

Some people seem to have more luck than others but you should not take this seriously. Although these stories could be quite inspiring, you simply cannot wait for luck to brush your way. Yes, it is nice to believe that magic happens sometimes, but you cannot idly wait for luck to come your way. What if it does not ever find you? What will happen to your hopes and aspirations? The truth is, you make your own luck by opening your mind to the infinite possibilities and putting the work in that will take you where you want to go.

Do not be a slave to work

Other people think that if they can only work longer hours, then success will be achieved much easier. Often it is not about the quantity of work you put in, but rather the quality. You could be working twenty-fours a day without rest, but achieve nothing significant. At the same time, you could be working for just a few hours but accomplish great things in that little time. You do not have to be a slave to work to be able to achieve success; you just have to know how to do work smarter.

Work does not have to be WORK

WORK is detested by many people because it entails hardship, stress, and failures. Many people dread oncoming work because they fear being strapped down by it. The truth is, work does not always have to feel like a chore. It is better to find work where you can effectively feed your passion. If you love what you do, then you will feel good while you are doing it, so make sure to do something that you are passionate about and everything will just fall into place.

Go over your limits

Never let other people dictate what you can and cannot do.

Do not let your own self-doubt stop you from doing more than other people's expectations. If you think you can, then go for it. Do not be afraid to go over your pre-conceived limitations because success is usually atop the highest mountain and in the deepest portion of the sea.

A person’s mindset can over-rule circumstances and make things that are seemingly impossible become possible. The mind is a very powerful thing especially if you know how to train and direct it. When you start training your mind and replacing old, negative thought patterns with new, positive ones, you will soon see that your potential is truly unlimited.
