The great Albert Einstein famously said, “You never fail until you stop trying.” Yes, you are not a failure until you accept failure. If you want to be successful, failure is part of the game of success. You can’t succeed in life without walking through the gate of failure.
“You are not a loser until you stop trying.”
You can’t avoid failure. When it happens, don’t take it as the end of your world. If you pay attention to it, it is the beginning of life, of growth, of learning. It is not the end of life; it is the beginning of life. Most people are not successful because of the fear of failure. If you can stop thinking about failure, there is nothing you can’t achieve in your life.
“You are not a failure until you quit.”
Instead of dominating your mind with failure thoughts, why not dominate it with success thoughts. Do not forget that you will always get what you think about all the time. Whatever you want to do, do not accommodate fear thoughts, do not allow failure thoughts to dominate your mind. It is okay to fail at something. but do not let failure thoughts keep you in a box. Don’t worry about failure, worry about what will happen if you give in to fear? What do you think is going to happen to your dreams?
Mario Andretti said, “If you wait, all that happens is that you get older.” So what are you waiting for? Are you waiting for the right time to start? If you are waiting for the perfect time to get out of your comfort zone, stop waiting. The train is living your station. You must do whatever it takes to catch your train. Run!
Stop getting ready. Paul Klee said, “A single day is enough to make us a little larger or, another time, a little smaller.” Is it really possible? Of course, it is possible. It can be done. But you must start. And you must start today. Don’t fear. Don’t doubt yourself. The most important thing is to believe in yourself. Stop waiting for the right time to make yourself bigger, smarter. Start now.
Stop waiting for the right time to go crazy. Because everything is changing. Success doesn’t come from waiting for the right time to change your life. It comes from getting your hands really dirty. It comes from actually doing the work.
You must do the work. You must face your reality. You must embrace change. You must do what you are afraid of doing. You must be comfortable taking risks. There is no perfect time to make mistakes. Start today. You can start today by changing how you do your things, how you make your decisions. Because you cannot change your life without changing your thoughts.
And if you really want to change yourself, you must stop thinking about the past. Remember that you are no longer living in the past. You are living in the moment. This moment needs you. If you are not present with yourself, how can you change your life?
