Failure is HARD! – Post 369

Today’s quote comes from Theodore Roosevelt.

“It is hard to fail, but it is worse never to have tried in the first place.” Theodore Roosevelt.

Failing is very difficult. It is psychologically painful. It’s something none of us like to face. I want you to think about Pete Rose. He was one of the greatest baseball players when I was a kid. He won 3 World Series rings, 3 batting titles, one Most Valuable Player, Two Gold Gloves and the Rookie of the year. Not only that, he made 17 All-Star appearances at 5 different positions. He is the all-time Major-League leader in hits with 4256 hits.

Did Pete have any failures? Yes. He struck out 10,328 times. That means approx. 6 out of 10 at bats he failed. Had Pete never tried he would have never had that success. Yes failure is hard but it is much better to at least try because eventually success will come your way.

Week 13 – Why some have success while others don’t – Post 317

Why do some people have success while others don’t?SuccessFailure

Do successful people possess some supernatural powers that others of us don’t have? Not really. From a scientific view point we are all basically the same. We have all come the same basic building blocks of life and we all share the same primordial DNA. Yes we all have different abilities, traits, talents. Some of us are physically stronger, others have finely tuned critical thinking skills, while others excel in the arts. But successful people can be found within these various groups.

Does success therefore come from Divine Intervention. We all know people that live their entire life for God but never seem to get a break. And we know of people that are pure evil yet still seem successful. I just don’t see an all knowing, all loving God being that unfair. Why even try if you have no control of the outcome. Instead I believe God put us all hear and gave us all the basic laws of the Universe. It is how we use those laws that determine our success.

Maybe some people have success while others don’t because that’s just the way it is. No sense trying to figure it out. If that was the case then Columbus would have never discovered America. The world is flat after all, that’s just the way it is. The Wright brothers would have never flew because people can’t fly. We would have never landed on the moon, etc. Because of the universal power of thought, someone thought it could be done and succeeded.

Thought alone isn’t the answer. I have often heard “you become what you think about most.” If that’s the case then why haven’t more people achieved success?

In the movie The Secret they discuss the law of attraction at length. In one part they discussed when people dwell on debt or illness they always seemed to get more of the same. People that have achieved success discuss in the movie how when they concentrated their thoughts on success, success came their way. Many people that watched the movie came to the conclusion that all they had to do was concentrate on what they wanted and it would just happen.  Nothing happened for them so they threw out the law of attraction.

The law of attraction is one more powerful tool that can be used to achieve success. People failed to see in the movie that the law of attraction is not a lottery ticket for success. Instead it attracts circumstances to you that you have act upon which then brings the next circumstance.

I see this in my own home business. I talk to people all the time that need and want extra income in their lives. Some don’t believe it’s possible; they don’t believe they are worthy or only the lucky could reach those goals so they reject what I have to offer them. Others have a lottery mentality. They join expecting instant results. They never put in the necessary effort. Fail, quit and say it’s not possible, those things never work.  Yet it’s working for me and thousands of others.

So why do some people have success while others don’t?

When most people think of success they are thinking of material wealth. Haanel talks about how we utilize the law of attraction to manifest material things like wealth. We concentrate on wealth. Circumstances come along to get us there. We take action on those circumstances and finally achieve material wealth only to discover we’re not satisfied or we are only temporarily satisfied.

This is where I believe the power of creative thought comes in. We must use creative thought to define exactly what success means to us. We need to start with what do we really want? What we really want is happiness and harmony. If we are truly happy we can have everything the world has to offer. If we are truly happy we can make others happy.

Haanel says we cannot be happy unless we have health, strength, congenial friends, pleasant environment, and sufficient supply to take care of our own necessities and to provide for those comforts and luxuries that we are entitled to.

I now see how all the exercises we have been doing in this Master Keys course have all been created with this end point in mind. Our DMP helped us to determine what our own definition of happiness would be. All the exercises of been toning up the skills needed so we can better utilize, to maximize the way we use the universal power of thought.
