(Continued from Life-Changing Success Habits 2)
1. A Good Plan Never Fails
What do you think?
No matter how great a plan might be, haven’t you experienced so many times when you couldn’t follow it through?
– Strong determination and strong will
– Numerous early morning alarms
– Self-imposed penalties for failing
– Planner or diary that helps you organize.
– Schedule management programs such as computers and smartphones due to the development of IT technology
Despite all this effort and support, haven’t you had a lot of experience breaking your promise and failing in the end?
While denying this reality and past experiences, believing in a faint sense of optimism and positive thinking is nothing more than a foolish fantasy.
2. If I fail, then so be it. What can I do?
If ‘thinking positively’ was a myth, then having a defeatist mindset of “if I fail, then I fail” is a myth as well.
It is the limitation of blind-faithed positivism and its lack of ability of create real, concrete solutions that have made a bad name for self-improvement.
Resulting in a unconditional distrust upon self-help books and seminars, and breeding counter-mindset like
- To succeed you must be born with it
- Success comes with luck, not with hard work
- You need to be born a hard-working person
However, to give up and settle for the status quo isn’t wise either.
