“If you stick with an idea long enough, only two things can happen. Either your idea becomes your success or it becomes your regret.”
Every success is an idea backed with efforts.
We all have our dreams. We all have our ideas. They might be borrowed, copied or evolved on their own. But they are ours.
There are only three kind of persons in the world. The first kind has an idea, they work on it and they fail. Then they back off. Not only from efforts, but the idea itself. These are the ones, who haven’t figured out their dreams yet. If you are one of them, not settling until you figure out your dream; is the best thing you can do.
The second kind has an idea, they work on it and they fail. They get back up and continue to try. They learn from their mistakes and adapt their approach. These are the ones, who stick with their idea and continue with their efforts. These are the ones who make it. If you are one of these, keep doing what you are doing. You are doing just fine.
The third kind has an idea, they work on it and they fail. Then they get distracted by their surroundings, leaving a trail of unfinished projects. These people are in the danger zone. And unfortunately, most of us fall into this category.
These people let the background noise get into their heads. They let their logic get into their way. These are the ones, who stick with their idea, but fail with their efforts. These are the ones who are hurt most by their failure.
They know that their idea is right. But, they are so afraid to fail again, that they postpone acting on their dreams. They think that they should’ve been more prepared before trying the first time. So, they start working on ‘getting ready’ for their next effort. Their next attempt at their dream.
I have been among these people for a long time. And I have only one thing to say to these people-
Stop fooling yourself.
