Key To Achievement

“There is no doubt in my mind that there are many ways to be a winner, but there is really only one way to be a loser and that is to fail and not look beyond the failure.”–Kyle Rote Jr.

John Maxwell in his book called Failing Forward states that he knows of only one factor that separates average people from achieving people. It is their perception of and response to failure. Nothing else has the same impact on our ability to achieve and accomplish whatever our minds and hearts desire. Even positive people struggle with how to see failure positively. How we see and deal with failure and our ability to look beyond it and keep achieving has an impact on every aspect of our life.

Most of us were taught that failure wasn’t good, so we learned to fear failure and were unprepared to experience failure. Many of us learned to avoid taking a risk so we wouldn’t have to deal with the possibility of failure. Most of us weren’t taught that it’s just a single event. It’s just a part of the process to success. J. Wallace Hamilton said: “People are training for success when they should be training for failure. Failure is far more common than success; poverty is more prevalent than wealth; and disappointment more normal than arrival.” Training for failure is a concept that is foreign to many of us. Doesn’t even sound right, does it?

There is no success or achievement without failure. Think of every story you’ve ever heard or read, and achievement always follows failures. Everyone in today’s economy is facing obstacles. What they are really isn’t important. What is important is that your life can change if your willing to change your perception of failure. You have the potential to be or have anything you desire in life. You can overcome any challenges or obstacles that come your way if you simply learn that failure is part of the process to achievement and continue to move forward. The change we have to make is in ourselves. Take responsibility, learn from each mistake, maintain a positive attitude, take new risks, and never quit or give up on yourself or your family.  It is the key to achievement. You can do it.

Have a magnificent day.
