You’re here right now at this moment because tomorrow you want to be somebody greater than the person you are today.
You see yourself succeeding, you have a vision, and you have a dream.
Congratulations you’re already ten steps ahead of ninety-five percent of the world.
Imagine if Michael Jordan was scared of missing. He would have never taken a shot.
Imagine if Steve Jobs was afraid of people not liking his product. There would be no iPhone.
So ask yourself this do you want to be a person who fears failure or do you want to be a person who loves success? Which one?
Because you’re going to have to pick today and I’ll tell you one thing one is a failure and one is a success and if you love success then there will be nothing that can stop you, all those negative things people says will mean nothing.
They’re going to talk about how 1% makes it to the top.
Big Deal want to know something else only 1% stick with that fitness program long enough to see result, only 1% of nerds stick with that video game long enough to get good at it, only 1% of relationships stick it out to the end.
That doesn’t mean you have a one-percent chance it just means you can’t behave like the ninety-nine percent, you’ll have to do something better than giving up for a month from now.
Those are just numbers. You want to talk about numbers take a look around you and take a good look around you.
Are you like ninety-nine percent of the people around you? If you are then you are in the wrong session my friend you have to love success just as much because that is going to allow you to get up and go for it.
Being scared to fail won’t do anything in fact when you love success you are start going for it, guess what happens?
You are going to fail, you are going to fail ten times, a hundred times, may be even a thousand times but that’s okay.
Failure is not permanent, falling is not permanent, you get right back up and keep going and this time you are going to be stronger, wiser and you will be more driven than ever and for every ten failures you will land one success.
You have to love success so much that you are willing to fail ten times before you can succeed once. That is how a winner does it.
I want to explain the biggest myth that most people think leads them to success and here’s the myth.
You might believe if you are scared to fail you won’t fail. LIES. Biggest myth ever and I believe it.
You see I always thought that being scared to fail in life would literally keep me from failing.
I would look at the losers around me and I would say sheesh I never want to turn out like him.
I really believe this train of thought would help me succeed until one day I was walking down the street and I saw an old man had a hat, suspenders and a cane was about 80 years old this old man was barely walking.
He could walk but the cane helped a lot he was struggling so anyway he was walking across the street and he ended up falling, so I went over to help him and he gets up says thank you and we introduce ourselves and had a little conversation told his name and I told him mine, his name was Robert by the way right as he walked away I told him this is what.
I said Robert you should stay inside where it’s safe my friend and Robert turns around and says to me I love walking and I love walking way more than I am afraid of falling.
So I asked him well what about your safety don’t you want to live and he told me this, these are the exact words he said he said this “solo, living means doing what you love to do and if I had to fall here and there to do what I want to do in life then so be it” and he just walked away never saw him again, that was it.
But that statement really made me thinking and it made me thinking hard because I learned something that day.
That’s when I realized the true key to success.
You see I always thought if I could just fear the act of failing and if I fear it like crazy I will succeed because I thought the fear would magically motivate me to get out there and start taking actions.
But after that day I realized something I realized it’s the love for success that will lead me to succeeding.
So just imagine if Robert feared falling would he even start walking? Of course not he would not even do what he loved to do he would sit at home and take no type of action but he loved walking wasn’t even scared to fall.
It gave him life that’s what allow him to get up and do it he loved walking so much he was willing to fall ten times a day just to do it and you have to be the same, so the next time someone tells you, you’re going to fail you know what you tell them, tell them they are right but you are not afraid to fail, you are not afraid to take actions, you are not afraid to jump.
You are going to fail ten times but you know what it’s cool because on the 11th time you will succeed oh you will succeed al right and it will feel good.
And while you are over here living the life of your dreams in complete happiness guess where they are going to be that’s right there will be failures the real failures over there where it’s safe scared to fail.
“No man ever achieved worth-while success who did not, at one time or another, find himself with at least one foot hanging well over the brink of failure
