Do You Find Success Or Must You Be A Success To Succeed?

Aug 4, 2008
In life, we will often find many people chasing things. Whether that is financial success, a soul mate or any other endeavor. We have become like how we perceive athletes, going from A to B. However, there is much more to achieving success than at first meets the eye.

Can you really find success? If we don't believe that we can achieve success, is it possible to succeed? It is said that success is 90% psychology and 10% perspiration. However, how true is this?

An example will serve. Do you like going on airplanes or do you have a phobia about airplanes? Whether you love to fly or not, you know the difference. When you consider someone who has a phobia, for some reason they can't get on the plane! Whereas pretty much all will easily walk onto that airplane.

From that example, we can see straight away, that our mentality can make a big difference. Consider the dentist. Very likely it is a bit of a struggle to go. We have fears, and concerns, and we may delay.

Get going. But, to get going, to go on to that airplane of success, requires someone who first is a success. If you have looked at times when you tried to get a job. Sometimes, you simply knew that you would get the job, and you did. Other times, you just did not give it your all, and failed that time. However, I am sure you agree from your own experience, that it does make a big difference on your results.

Success comes when you are successful. When we ask the high achievers in life, the people that many people admire, we find that even those that went from rags to riches, they will often say that they were a success, even in the rags!

How is this possible? After all, many people think they will be rich, when they have the money, they will be famous when they have the fame. However, we can see that this is not the case.

We must be successes in the start. That way, when you go to perform, whether that is as a winning salesman, getting the sales or an actor or actress going for the big stage, they will be that success.

You can truly transform your life. It is not trying to find happiness that makes people happy, but happy people going and finding other happy people. Success finds success. And yes - seek and you shall find still applies. The difference is that when you ask, you believe that you receive. Not believe after you achieve.
