Have you ever ask yourself this question, "how long will success takes"? One of the main reasons that may hinder us from reaching our innermost goals and desires is our inability to be flexible. For some people, success may take a year, a month or even just one day. For others, it may take 10 years or even ten decades. The important thing is to take your first step and move on, else nothing will happen.
Making A Life Change Decision
This fact is true though it may be hard to swallow. To eliminate any type of suffering in our lives, we do everything we can to eliminate it, yet challenges and pressures can prevent us from bringing out the best in us.
If you have been burdened by mistakes in the past, learn from them, forget about them, and move on. Some people tend to focus on how bad their lives have been due to these mistakes. As a result, they remained stuck in their miserable lives. Treat your mistakes as lessons, and apply them as learning references in your future endeavors.
Newspaper publisher Horace Greeley said of Lincoln:
He slowly won his way to eminence and fame doing the work that lay next to him - doing it with all his growing might - doing it as well as he could, and learning by his failure, when failure was encountered, how to do it better.
Thomas Alva Edison. "I have not failed. I've just found 10000 ways that won't work".
What will you do if you have invested in a business and lose a ton of money? Under such circumstances, some people would remain deeply discouraged for a long time that their personal lives are being affected negatively. They simply stare at the ceiling all night long, unable to eat well, thinking how this bad incident happened. Then, they would probably vow not to venture into new opportunities again.
Do you want to be like them? If you're afraid to fail, then you risk all your chances to achieve your goals in life. Try again; but this time, be more careful and use your past mistakes as guide maps.
Look at it this way. If you try, at least you get a 50% chance of getting what you want. But if you did not try at all, you have absolutely no chance of attaining your desires in life. It's a no-brainer. But when you try, make sure you follow through. I've met so many people who have accepted my proposal to write reports for me, but most of them would stop right in the middle of their work and quit. They have the drive to start, but they lack the motivation to go through all the difficulties. Yes, this is another fact of life. Those who persist may have some hell of a time at present, but they shall have the last laugh.
Let's fast forward into the life change future. Assuming you did try, you followed through, and you succeeded. Congratulations. So you became wealthy by reaping the fruits of your labor. Does this does not mean you'll stay in that situation for good? Nope, problems may rise again, so always be ready to adjust to the current situation. The only thing permanent in this world is change.
If you need to sacrifice something for a better cause, then do it. If you have to miss your favorite show on TV or if you have to deny your friends' invitation to go out on a Saturday night so that you can devote more time to those activities that will lead you closer to your goals, so be it.
You may receive criticisms. You may encounter difficulties or even be regarded as being "different" or "strange" by other people. Don't let them discourage you. You need and continue learning, act and continue acting, help and continue helping. Just keep on striving, and success will be yours for the taking.
