"Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles that one has overcome while trying to succeed."
Booker T. Washington
Success is something we all want. However, success is rarely achieved by merely wanting it. In order to attain the lasting success we seek, we must be willing to do more than just want it. We've got to give more. By giving a little more effort, showing a little more focus and exhibiting a little more determination and persistence in everything we do, we can reach any goal we set for ourselves.
The best of the very best are those individuals who regularly demand the best from themselves. Not every once in a while, but every minute of every day. If we're willing to give our best, do our best and show our best day in and day out, we too can become self-made super success stories.
The most important portion of that phrase is self-made.
"When you believe you can... you can."
Corny as it may sound to some, you must first SEE yourself being super successful before you'll ever get there. Winners possess the uncanny ability to vividly visualize their successes in advance. They picture whatever they desire in their minds in crystal clear detail. But they do more than simply see it; they believe they can achieve it with all of their hearts and souls.
Then they get busy making something happen.
As a result, these champions invariably achieve the success they expect in life. Their super positive outlook, attitude and approach invariably yields the results the super positive outcomes they desire.
The exact same success formula can work for you as well. You've just got to put it to work.
"Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail."
When you consistently expect the best life has to offer, the best is exactly what you will receive in return. On the other hand, if you are convinced that your life will be difficult, then difficulties are precisely what you'll get. If you consistently believe that you can't get the job done, failing and falling short will become your calling card. If you feel you have no chance to do your best and be your best, then no chance is exactly what you will experience.
So here's a simple suggestion. Why not develop an enthusiastic, positive, optimistic outlook on life and let that winner inside you WIN? A positive charged winning attitude is the best insurance policy you can have against defeat and despair. When you develop the capacity to consistently see yourself winning in your mind, you will soon find yourself winning on the playing field of life as well.
"To accomplish great things we must first dream, then visualize, then plan... believe... act!"
Alfred A. Montapert
When you look for all of the good life has to offer, you will discover something truly amazing; there's plenty of good things all around you. Great things everywhere you turn, fabulous moments everywhere you look. In fact, there is something good in virtually every nook and cranny of your life. You've just got to remove the blinders and go find them. The minute you stop expecting the worst and start looking for life's very best, the very best is precisely what you will find.
Believe it or not (hopefully you're a firm believer by now), you are a super success story in the making. You just need to focus on making good things happen. You need to expect to succeed. And most importantly, you need to play to win; each time, every time, all of the time. With a winning outlook powering you through each and every day, your outcome looks really great from here.
The Bottom Line: Improve your outlook and you will absolutely improve your outcome.
