Sometimes life is just not fair
I hear all the time from people that life is not fair and my
response to that is “That’s right life is not fair.” The question is. How do
you handle that? If life is unfair to you, do you whine about it, or do you figure
out a way to push through the difficulty and keep trying.
The only way you fail, is to give up
I heard someone say many years ago, that you never fail if
you keep trying. So, if you think about life that way, as long as you keep
pushing, you will never fail. Yes, there may be setbacks, maybe multiple
setbacks. But I think that the problem with so many people is that they put a
time on their success. For some reason, if you reach a certain age and have not
found the success you want, you are a failure, but that’s just wrong. There are
many people that have had very difficult lives and have gone through many failures
but found success much later and the reason is that they kept trying.
Those that do, Succeed
Another big obstacle of success is fear of failure.
Sometimes fear can leave people frozen in place and people who are afraid to
fail never try anything that may feed into those fears. Let say you want buy a
home and rent it out. You find a home to purchase and your ready to buy, but
then you hear that the economy is slowing down, so you fear that the economic slowdown
will make your new venture into the home rental business fail, so you don’t buy
the home. You allow the atmosphere of fear that is constantly being portrayed
in the media stifle your dream of a new business venture and you may not fail,
but if you don’t try, you will never have success. My suggestion, just ignore
the negative atmosphere that people have and go with your gut. I don’t mean to
just plow ahead without doing your due diligence, but don’t allow outside influences
stop you from acting when you in your heart know you are right. Remember there
are many people who make a lot of money of injecting gloom and doom into society. Just
go into a book store or look on Line at books for sale and you will not see
a book telling people how great things are on the best seller list. You find
books on how to make your life better or other how too books. The reality is that
the best how to, is just to start. I always thought that one of the best
branding slogans is when Nike came out with the “Just do it” Slogan. Those 3
words wrap up the whole road to success.
Remember if you don’t try, you will never succeed. Anytime
you think that life is not fair and you should just give up, because other
people have had an advantage over you, think about a blind piano player and
there are many of them, some are household name and some are not, but don’t you
think they had an obstacle that other piano players did not have. What about
the athletes in the “Special Olympics” Do you think that they have obstacles to
overcome, but yet they push ahead? Has life been fair to them? The answer to
fear, is to ignore it. Go with your gut and ignore all the noise that you hear.
Being negative is easy, but having a positive attitude is infectious and will not only help you ‘get past hard times, but it will help
you be a successful person and you will also inspire others.
