For gross generalizations purposes I think people fall into 3 different categories and I am going to rant about it.
1. Anything is possible and I am going to keep pursuing what ever I want until I get it. If it doesn’t work and I get knocked down, face rejection, I stand up brush off my shoulders and carry on. Over and over again, no matter what!!
2. Then there are the people who have big dreams and goals but when they face rejection or difficulty, they crumble and shrink back. They are always waiting for the perfect time and plan to take action again so they don’t have to suffer failure. Not taking that class or following through on the work that it really takes to succeed. Instead they complain that they don’t get it but never want to put the time and work in to achieve their goals.
3. Then there is the type of person who thinks that nothing can work and basically the world is out to get them. The ones that think life sucks and there is not point because “bad shit happens to good people.” The ones that don’t bother to try but complain about their shitty life all the time.
Honestly I am fed up and I am talking the gloves off. I am not going to sugar coat my opinions and placate to anyone so if you don’t like my twisted version of reality don’t read my stuff.
For me success and achieving your goals all comes down to having a positive out look and being willing to try over and over again in the face of rejection.
Fuck rejection, IT DOES NOT MATTER.
Fuck failure, IF SOMETHING DOESN’T WORK TRY SOMETHING ELSE.
Fuck the fact that it takes a lot of work, DO OR DON’T BUT STOP WASTING YOUR AND MY TIME IF YOU DON’T WANT TO DO WHAT IT TAKES.
How do you expect to get anywhere in life if you don’t try and fail and try again. Try again a thousand times or a million times. What ever it takes, that is my mentality.
Winston Churchill failed sixth grade. He was subsequently defeated in every election for public office until he became Prime Minister at the age of 62. He later wrote, “Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never, Never, Never, Never give up.” (his capitals, mind you)
The older I get the more of a gap I see between the people who believe if they try enough they will succeed and those that think that the world is out to get them and everything is impossible so they don’t even try. Those that shrink into themselves and say woe is me. The ones who say they are depressed and don’t want to do anything. Be a fucking man and stand up. Do or die; because I will be trying for everything I want till the day I die. Will you?
This becomes glaringly apparent when I hang out with some people, especially my old high school friends. All they do is work at dead end jobs they hate and come home and mask the pain with substances (drugs, video games, TV, or liquor). Then they complain that the world is out to get them. Its pathetic. Some people will hate on me for being insensitive. Fuck sensitivity do you want to do something with your life or not?
Then there are the people who want success but they don’t want to do what it takes. This community is filled with them and I hope you aren’t one of them. But if you are its time to change. If you really want it are you willing to do what it takes? Are you willing to get the help you need? Are you willing to take that coaching class or how about you finish that book that you bought and actually APPLY IT? Are you willing to put the practice and time in to get amazing results instead of typing up posts questioning other people?
Regardless of whether you are going to “make it” or not, first you have to believe that it is possible or you won’t try.
And it is possible.
