“We are too apt to look at leaders in the hour of their triumph without taking into consideration the setbacks, defeats, and adversities through which they had to pass before success came.”

The action of success is first in our mind as an idea/thought which sparks our imagination into full gear and gives our subconscious the order to produce the desired effect. The action of success also necessitates that we formulate a plan, set goals and above all, being willing to take a chance on ourselves and our ideas, and as some say, step out on faith on our ability to be a success.
Believing in ourselves and our ideas are keystones to advancing up the ladder of success and well-being.
If we don’t take action on our ideas someone else will benefit. Some have shared with me their stories of not taking action on their ideas and a year or so later someone else, who had the same idea, made a fortune. If we don’t believe in ourselves, our ideas, our talents, our abilities, success will elude us. The power, the energy, the creativity of Life cannot aid us on our journey if we forego believing in ourselves and our ideas.
If we long for success cultivating self-acceptance, self-confidence, and self-worth are vital. If we have no belief in self or our idea no one else will. The only barriers to our success exist in our minds as thoughts, beliefs, concepts concerning ourselves (self-image) and our ability to achieve a better life.
Look at the adversities athletes have overcome and their persistence to be in the Olympic Games, i.e. the USA female weightlifter, Sarah Robles, USA female runner Lolo Jones, and Oscar Pistorius the runner from the Republic of South Africa. There are many in this world who have overcome great obstacles and are successful. How about those in the filed of acting, art, writing and the like who never gave up and now excel at their craft, for instance Michael J. Fox. There are well known actors/entertainers who have slept in their car, i.e. Chelsea Handler. In the field of writing, Stephen King had humble beginnings. But most of all, look at your neighbor, a friend, a relative who wouldn’t let “that something” stop them from living life to the fullest of their abilities and go for success. Take a look at yourself and appreciate all your accomplishments and whatever “things” you had to overcome in your life.
Time, dedication and persistence pays off in the long run.
How dedicated are we to the pursuit of our dreams and goals?
Never ever discount yourself, your talents, or your abilities! You are already successful so continue onto greater success in living your life. You are more than capable to achieve your dreams, goals and desires. You are a powerhouse of success.
