How you feel is not a consequence of what is happening to you, but your interpretation of what is happening. The lives of successful individuals have demonstrated that quality of life is determined not by what happens to us but rather what we do about what happens. Focus on your life purpose and goals and do not allow the attitude and behaviour of others distract you. People have the right to behave the way they like, depending on their objectives and expectations, and you should not allow that to be a problem to you. Be focused, be positive. Do not use others as excuse. You will never become successful as long as you continue to blame someone or something else for your condition. If you must be successful, you have to take 100% responsibility for everything that you experience in your life. You will not be ultimately satisfied and be happy if you don’t already feel good about yourself in the inside.
On the surface, it may appear that a person’s happiness is linked to the amount of success he achieves. That is, the more successful you are, the happier you become. However, psychologists have established that happiness precedes success; that happy people tend to be successful across multiple domains in life, including work performance, health, income, friendship and even marriage. That somebody is
successful does not guarantee his /her happiness. But if you are not happy with what you are doing you may not do it successfully.
There is no human being without self-confidence. Every person exhibits self-confidence in one way or another. For example, do you feel inadequate or lack of self-confidence when you discuss with your mum, dad, siblings, spouse and friends ? Nevertheless, you still feel nervous, inadequate or lack of self-confidence in some instances: making presentation to a gathering; asking an attractive lady or man out on a date; making contributions to discussions in meetings; behaving in your best interest when discussing with top hierarchy persons; handling difficult and cantankerous customers; dealing effectively in negotiations; etc. In fact, you would rather prefer to avoid these circumstances !
The problem in these situations is not that you lack self-confidence or feel inadequate . The problem is that you are very confident about the wrong thing; you are confident that you are inadequate and lack self-confidence .!
Assume that you are supremely self-confident :
WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING? WHAT WOULD YOU BE SAYING TO YOURSELF? HOW WOULD YOUR VOICE SOUND? HOW WOULD YOU BE FEELING? WHAT IMAGES WOULD YOU BE SEEING IN YOUR MIND?
Confidence is a state of mind. Since you had been confident before , all you need to d o now is to activate your most confident mental state whenever you feel inadequate or lack of self-confidence . Read the Success Tip on ELICITING MENTAL STATE FOR SUCCESS.
Success and failure are not transferred genetically. Our society is filled up with astoundingly successful personalities who emerged from disadvantaged backgrounds. For example, read the biographies or autobiographies of Chief Obafemi Awolowo, Chief MKO Abiola, Chief Michael Ade-Ojo, Mrs. Folorunso Alakija and you will discover that success in any human endeavours is a product of DESIRE TO SUCCEED, VISION , ORGANISED PLANNING, FAITH , ACTION and PERSEVERANCE. In the words of Napoleon Hill , in his book THINK AND GROW RICHRICH,
" There are no limits to what a person can achieve. Whatever a person can conceive and believe he can achieve ".
You have to take 100% responsibility for your life. Whether you are an orphan or from a poor family, you have equal chance of succeeding on whatever you do. You have no excuse for failure. You need SELF-REPATTERNING.
