Failure State of Mind

Most people have dreams and goals, but what happens to people who do not know exactly how to achieve their goals? Do they give up or do they keep going? I believe losing is a state of mind. If you say “I want to be able to bench 500 pounds in the next 3 years” and you are only able to lift 350 does that make you a failure?

Regardless of what you do, people might tell you that you are a failure. You have to step out on faith. If you do not try then you already failed. You will not succeed if you don’t try. Have you ever notice that failures have the most creative ideas? They never go through with their ideas. Somehow they talk themselves out of doing it. Why are these people all talk? What are the factors that make people give up without trying?

People who consider themselves or other people failures simply have a negative view of the world. Since having a negative attitude is unproductive, people who see failure are more likely to gravitate to failure themselves. So if you consider yourself or someone you know a failure, just change your mind, and if you are worried that other people think you are a failure, don’t worry about it. Stay positive and know that failure is a state of mind. Just because you can’t lift 500 doesn’t mean you are a failure adjust your goal a little. If I shoot for the stars and hit the moon I think I can live with that.

  1. Very interesting Post. I think people are very insecure with themselves and there abilities. Sometimes it takes special people to see the strong points in people to help bring things out of them. Why most men marry a woman that makes him better. She really just believe that he can achieve which in return makes him do great things.

    We have to learn to surround ourselves with like minded people. Or even better people that are better than us. If we are in a group of people and you are always the top of the food chain it is time to get with another group just saying.

  2. Nice post. Do you think that sometimes dreamers set there goals to high? Or they are just lazy and can not put in the work to get the finish product they desire? It is just like the saying people want what you got but they don’t know what it took for you to get it. Blood Sweat and Tears.

  3. People that are about there business make unrealistic goals all the time. I think it is a way to bring out the best in you. We have to realize that everyday we have a shot at achieving our goals. I lift 350 today tomorrow it is 375. We have to learn to be patient everyone wants results right away. That is the reason everyone does not have a 6 pack not because they dont want it but they are not willing to put in the work. Failure is a state of mind you can do what you want to do you just have to continue to work at it. Go for your goals everyday of your life and stop looking for a quick fix.

  4. I think people look at everyones story and do not think they can do what others do. It becomes a problem for them. Stop looking at what others have and look at what you do have and make the best of that. Play the cards your dealt and stop trying to take someone elses hand. All that to say your road just might be longer to get to the top but it does not make your less.

  5. TRYING will not guarantee SUCCESS, but NOT TRYING or QUITTING will guarantee FAILURE… If you think you CAN do something, you’re right… If you think you CAN’T, guess what, you’re still right!

  6. Anyone can be successful…but how successful is only measured by one abilities/capabilities…starting with an idea ,follow-up with an plan of action,lastly execute the plan out…then on have a side of success breakfast,lunch,dinner.

  7. People in this world think so small. It is a comfort zone that we are in and we need to get out of it. People tell themselves they can not do it before there feet even touch the ground it is crazy.

  10. I have realized that online degree is getting preferred because accomplishing your college degree online has changed into a popular alternative for many people. A huge number of people have never had a chance to attend a traditional college or university but seek the elevated earning potential and a better job that a Bachelor’s Degree grants. Still others might have a degree in one field but would choose to pursue something they already have an interest in.

  15. Thanks for your beneficial post. Over time, I have come to understand that the particular symptoms of mesothelioma cancer are caused by the build up of fluid involving the lining of your lung and the chest cavity. The illness may start inside chest area and spread to other parts of the body. Other symptoms of pleural mesothelioma cancer include fat loss, severe breathing trouble, throwing up, difficulty ingesting, and inflammation of the face and neck areas. It really should be noted that some people living with the disease will not experience just about any serious symptoms at all.
