One of the main reasons that may prevent us from reaching our innermost goals and desires is our inability to be flexible to changes happening in our lives.
This may be difficult to admit, but it's true. We do everything we can to avoid any type of suffering in our lives, yet problems and pressures can bring out the best in us. We must have a positive mindset in adapting to change and in making the most out of it.
If you have been burdened by mistakes in the past, learn from them, forget about them, and move on. Some people tend to focus on how miserable their lives have been due to these mistakes. As a result, they remained stuck in their miserable lives.
Treat your mistakes as lessons, and apply them as learning references in your future endeavors.
So what if you invested in a business and you lose a ton of money? In this situation, some people would become intensely frustrated for a long time that their personal lives are being affected negatively. They can't eat well and they just stare at the blank wall all day long, thinking how this bad situation occured. In addition, they would probably vow not to venture into new opportunities again.
You don't have to be like them. If you're afraid to fail, then you risk all your chances to achieve your goals in life. Try again; but this time, be more careful and use your past mistakes as guide maps.
Look at it this way. If you try, at least you get a 50% chance of getting what you want. But if you did not try at all, you have absolutely no chance of attaining your desires in life. It's a no-brainer.
But when you try, make sure you follow through. I've met so many people who have accepted my proposal to write reports for me, but most of them would stop right in the middle of their work and quit. They have the drive to start, but they lack the motivation to go through all the difficulties. Yes, this is another fact of life. Those who persist may have some hell of a time at present, but they shall have the last laugh.
Let's fast forward into the future. Let's say you did try, you followed through, and you succeeded. Congratulations. So you became wealthy by reaping what yu painstakingly sow. This does not mean you'll stay in that situation for good. Problems may rise again, so always be ready to adjust to the current situation. The only thing permanent in this world is change.
If you need to sacrifice something for a better cause, then do it. If you have to miss your favorite movie or if you have to decline your friends' invitation to go out on at the club so that you can focus more time to those activities that will lead you closer to your goals, so be it.
You may encounter setbacks. You may receive criticisms. You may even be regarded as being "different" or "strange" by other people. Don't let them discourage you. Just keep on striving, and success will be yours for the taking.
