My Success Principles – Encourage Others With Your Words
I saw a motivational message the other day that really touched me. Your words have great power use them to support and inspire.
We never truly know what a person is going through. So maybe we should think before we judge. Life doesn’t let you to go back and change things. All you can do is learn from the past, and prepare for what the future may bring....
Strong people stand up for themselves, but stronger people stand up for others. An encouraging comment or a bit of praise can make a huge difference in someone’s life. The people in your life are not there by accident. Do you believe in them? Are you encouraging them?
When we bring out the best in others we also bring out the best in ourselves. Remember, an encouraging word works wonders, so be free with your compliments. Tell people what they mean to you and get in the habit of building up those around you.
Always remember…You were born with the ability to change someone’s life…DON’T EVER WASTE IT! - My Success Principles (Heather Solomon)
Persistence Pays: Learning to Finish What You Start
When it comes to completing a job, task, or project, have you ever choked under the pressure and wondered if you would finish? If this has happened to you, you might have ended up feeling guilty and profoundly disappointed in your own abilities.
Even though your desire for an end result is high, the difficulty level or time required to complete the task could make you want to give up....
Overcoming Failures to Reach Success
The word failure is often used to describe a situation in which your desired goals were not realized at a specific point in time. There are many reasons that could have played a part in your goal not being realized and absolutely none of them have to do with your value as a person.
Let’s break down some of the ideas behind unhealthy views of failure and see how taking a more positive approach can help you realize success:...
• If you are trying out for the high school basketball team and you don't make the cut, this doesn’t make you a failure. It simply means that under these specific circumstances, the coach didn’t believe that you possessed the necessary skills to play on this particular team at this point in time.
• What much of the pain stems from when not reaching a desired goal is your attachment to outcomes. If you define your own value and worth as a person by whether or not you make a sports team, you’re setting yourself up for that ugly seven-letter word.
• It is for this same reason that those who value trying their best regardless of the outcome have more confident and unwavering views of themselves.
• You too can have this view when you realize that you’re not responsible for certain outcomes after you do everything in your power to achieve them.
• If you're not currently doing everything in your power to achieve an outcome, then start doing it today! If you already are, then sit back and relax, taking solace in the understanding that you’re doing everything you can and cannot ask more of yourself.
It may be worthwhile to step back and assess whether or not this is a matter of a deficit in a particular skill set or something in which allowing yourself more time to reach the original goal is all that is needed.
These are the questions that successful people ask themselves when encountering roadblocks to the outcomes that they want to achieve.
As soon as you begin attaching your self worth to these outcomes, you’ll likely be overcome with emotion and less capable of using sound logic to increase your chances of success later down the road.
In order to overcome failure, you must experience a dramatic shift in your outlook on the meaning of failure and success.
No matter how much you want to be a Hollywood movie star, if the steps that you are capable of taking to bring yourself closer to that goal are limited at this point in time, you’ll be subjecting yourself to a constant state of stress by continually expecting yourself to achieve greater results.
Patience will be your friend in changing your thinking about these fundamental concepts and it is also a virtue that nearly all successful individuals possess in ample amounts.
Remember: Never give up. Keep trying. Do the best you can and focus on the process instead of the outcome. The final result will be success!
My Success Principles
Before you react to people and events, pause for a second and ask yourself:
“Will this reaction bring me closer to happiness?”
If it won't, work on changing your reaction....
Those who doubt you are only afraid of their own potential. Your faith, drive, passion, vision and goals makes them realize that they can do so much more than remain stagnant. Let your action motivate them. Be the example of what’s possible outside of fear and limitations. - Idil
