Do You Unintentionally Harm the Opportunity for Success?

One habit will undoubtedly and unintentionally harm the opportunity for success. What is that habit? The worst thing many of us do is to self-guess ourselves. We question the following:

  • Am I good enough?
  • What if I can't perform per the expectations set?
  • Is it worthwhile to take a chance on humiliation?

All of the above questions lead many not to try. There is a positive and a negative for the above self-doubt for those brave enough to attempt the new career or business strategy anyway. The positive approach is to be on the watch for where outside help can aid the process of succeeding. The negative outcome is that one does not try as hard as one is capable of, only to prove they aren't worthy.

It is necessary to eliminate the unintentional harm to the opportunity for success. The better way is to monitor all activities every day for potential revision and to remain on top of our goals to ensure we stay on a steady course for success. It's wise to embrace another habit of at least a brief daily meditation. It takes as little as one minute to reflect on your vision of what you ultimately want to achieve versus where you are today. During the sixty seconds, do the following:

  1. Affirm what you eventually want to accomplish
  2. Smile, knowing you will achieve what you desire
  3. Reflect on your highest priority at the moment to complete

Daily meditation is helpful, brief, and can be highly effective when we dedicate ourselves to its purpose and individual purpose.

"Passion, Purpose, and Perseverance will get you to your destination.

A word of caution is to realize not everyone will support your effort, nor will every effort work out to your satisfaction. That is why it is essential to pay attention to the quote above. Otherwise, the possibility of success will diminish significantly. Passion is a vital element of our work, or else the motivation quickly declines. The purpose for what we do gives reason for continuing when the odds move against us. And perseverance by doing everything possible to make our vision come true is what it takes when upsets occur. We need to continue moving forward no matter the outcome with a willingness to fix what isn't working correctly.

Working with obstacles takes determination to succeed. Whatever the issue, give thought to the most desirable outcome. The bigger picture of how you want others to remember you and the change you would like to see in the world for which you are an originator or contributor will motivate you further. Make it a daily effort to do something that will contribute to the change you desire.

Goal setting for the long term and working backward with milestones to target will help you achieve your ultimate passion. Underlying the goal setting and tracking is an equally important strategy of testing one at a time. Otherwise, two or more new trials at a time will not accurately reveal which works best and those that may need further revision. Although the process sounds as if it will take far longer, it won't because you know precisely where you are and how to move forward with greater precision.

Returning to the article's title, 'Do You Unintentionally Harm the Opportunity for Success?' a new practice for many is to ignore negativity surrounding you. Realize that often the nastiness is due to envy or fear that you may move beyond where the other person remains. Smile and begin viewing the negativity as a sign that you are onto something good. And then give yourself a pep talk to continue going no matter the obstacles you face. Instilling these habits will help you receive the opportunity for success and achieve what you envision.

One last thought for making a more significant impact is contributing to a community of your choice in your style. The appreciation you receive is memorable and provides more motivation to continue forward. Aiding others is an excellent example of a significant contribution that helps you and many others succeed.
