Final Defeat

We all have experienced terrible loses in life. It is a part of our lives. If you haven’t experienced one, it is either you are not trying hard enough, or you are just playing it too safe.

When you are planning or cultivating your path to success, don’t just focus on the good side of it, you should also plan on how you are going to deal with adversity, obstacles, and frustrations. You are going to experience lots of them. They are there waiting for you to come. If you want success badly, you will go. It is not what happened to you that matters now. It is what you do with it after you have experienced it that matters. Are you going to quit, or are you going to stick with it until you succeed?

When you are planning or cultivating your path to success, don’t just focus on the good side of it, you should also plan on how you are going to deal with adversity, obstacles, and frustrations.”

Success and failure are on the same street. You cannot separate them. If you want to succeed, you must be ready to fail. It is after you have failed, then you learn how to succeed. First failure is not failure, it is experimenting time. If you fail the first time, don’t quit. Stick with it, learn it, and start again. People fail because they take the first misstep as the final failure. Don’t do that. It is not your last chance. It is your first chance. It is not your last shot at success. Try again. People fail because they can’t move past the first misstep.

If you want to succeed, you must be ready and willing to move past the first misstep. If you do, you will succeed.

Managing People

You don’t manage people. You lead people. People are human beings, not things.

Let us face it. You don’t manage people, you manage things. People are not things; they are human beings with emotions. Emotions are powerful. That is what makes it really difficult to manage people.

When I hear people, managers, leaders, saying how they manage their people, it doesn’t sit well with me at all. If you want people to listen to you, to follow you, to work with you, to help you succeed, you don’t manage them, you lead them. Leading people is the only way to success.

“Leaders lead. Managers Manage.”

You lead people. You don’t manage them. You manage things. If you try to manage your people, they will not follow you. But if you show them the way forward, they will follow you to hell.

You are a leader, not a manager. Manage your things, and lead your people. People want you to lead them, not to manage them. Be a leader and a manager. You need both to be successful.
