Can you imagine telling something new and exciting to a significant role model in your life? Is there an idea or event that stimulated you physically and mentally? Beginning a new career, changing your image, losing weight, and joining a sports team are just some of the examples. However, “that’s ridiculous” is what you hear instead of an encouraging comment.
Negative statements such as the ones mentioned above can create fear of failure and fear of rejection within a person. The individual on the receiving end can feel helpless because of this situation. Barriers toward individual accomplishment is created because of negative attitudes. The implicit, or unspoken message, is: “Whatever gave you the idea that you are motivated enough?.”
Do you remember a time when you or a friend finally made the team but the coach left you sitting on the bench? How did you feel? Humiliation? Was there insecurity? What will it take for you to get off of the bench and become the athlete, the person, you truly want to become. Why not tell the coach that if he’d only give you a chance you can prove how good you really are.
Sitting on the bench, and not asserting yourself, is like being in a play without acting out the part. As you go through life, do you always give it 100%? Perhaps you’re afraid of failing or succeeding at what you want to accomplish. Maybe you set yourself up for failure and tell yourself you can’t perform well. Is it possible that you allow unproductive and negative vocabulary to dominate your thoughts? Your motivation is taken away by negative self-talk and you need to eliminate this inner barrier.
Below are the 3 helpful ways to overcome success
- Continually tell yourself that you welcome challenges. You need to be willing to challenge yourself to your maximum capacity. Move forward in your communication by deleting all negative self-talk.
- Believe that you will give 100% to whatever you set out to accomplish. Stop providing excuses to blame yourself, becoming disempowered from achieving your goals and increasing your self-esteem. To eliminate “must”, “should”, and “ought” you need to believe in your pride of accomplishment.
- Just make sure you do your best. It’s important to see yourself in an evolving way all the time. Try to stretch the physical, mental, and emotional fiber within you. Believe and feel that you are one dynamite, ecstatic, and powerful person. Keep in mind that it’s your beliefs that affect the way you act and feel.
