Change Your Life: Fall 1,000 Times But Get up 1,001

Recently, I’ve been thinking about something, I’ve been thinking about how many times people fail once and never get back to their feet try again.

I have failed a lot in my life. In fact, I’ve failed more times than I care to count. But the difference between failure and success is the willingness to get back on your feet and try the same task that you have failed multiple times.

Try the task until you have conquered it. You can try it and fail 1,000 times but get up 1,001 times.

Reggie Jackson struck out 26-hundred times in his career, the most in the history of baseball, but people only remember the home runs. Thomas Edison attempted 1,000 failed experiments but his 1,0001st experiment was the light bulb.

But do you know why they succeeded? Because they refused to let failure get the best of them.

At some point in your life, you will fail, it’s a part of life.

Sure, you can win 1,000 times, but you will lose more than once. If we succeeded in everything we do every time we did it, success wouldn’t be worth celebrating because we would be used to it.

They say run towards your dream, but if you run towards it, you will be winded once you get there. Walk towards your dream and you will have enough energy to execute your dream to fullest extent.

Hank Aaron failed more than once, Babe Ruth failed more than once.

You see, failure is inevitable. You will fail, but do you have what it takes to succeed one time and change your life? Fall 1,000 times but get up 1,001.

In Order to Accomplish Your Dream, You Have to Be in the Right Environment

As I type this, I’m listening to motivational speaker, Les Brown, and said something that really caught my attention.

You can accomplish any goal or dream that you might have in this life if you have the right mindset.

But, mindset isn’t everything, the environment also a lot to do with your success rate and so do the people that you surround yourself with.

Just a few minutes ago, Les said “Everybody don’t want you to win, everybody won’t be a part of your dream, you have to ask yourself, ‘”Who can I count on and who can I count out.'”

You see, when I heard that, it dawned on me, there are people that are just in your life because it benefits them.

Those people aren’t meant to be a part of your dream, they just want to be associated with you.

Everybody won’t be in your corner, there are people who will be in the opposite corner rooting against you, but will act like they are in your corner when they are around you.

Then, there are people who will be in your corner and support you no matter what, those are the people that you need to surround yourself with.

Don’t keep surrounding yourself with people who are in the opposite corner, surround yourself with people who will be in your corner no matter what.

Surround yourself with people who aren’t just around you to benefit from your past successes because those are the ones that will be with you even after you have reached your dream.

Without the right environment, you are not going to succeed, find the right environment for yourself and stay there, don’t let those who are just around you because it’s convenient.

You have the power in you to create a better life. But are you willing to sacrifice those people that drag you down, in order to find those who will bring you to the top?
