“In the long run, ‘good enough’ is never good enough.”- Robert Herjavec
You cannot achieve greatness without stretching yourself. If you are not getting what you want, you must do more than what you are doing right now. Because if you want more, you must do more. If you give more, you will get more.
No matter what, if you want to be successful, you must do more than what other people are doing. Because if you do what they are doing, you will get what they are getting. When you are doing your best, do not worry about failure. Just go for it. Just do your best. According to H. Jackson Brown, ” If you’re doing your best, you won’t have any time to worry about failure.” Do not focus on failure, focus on what you are doing.
If your best is not enough, then you can try these strategies:
“Put a few nickels in the machine.”
Do not expect to get the best if you don’t do your best. It is simple, but hard for so many people to follow. If you are not doing your best, if you are not giving your best, you are cheating yourself. You are not cheating your boss. You are cheating your future. According to Flip Wilson, “You can’t expect to hit the jackpot if you don’t put a few nickels in the machine.” If you want your life to change, you must put some “nickels in the machine.”
If your best is not enough, you must develop yourself. You must do more than what you are doing right now. As Brigham Young famously put it, “Never let a day pass that you will have cause to say, I will do better tomorrow.” Do not let the fear of failure stop you from getting better tomorrow. To defeat fear, you must be brave. Are you brave enough to increase your best?
“Stay up and fight”
Life is all about fighting for what you want. If you don’t fight for what you want, someone else will help you. When you are faced with a problem, don’t abandon it. You must “stay up and fight” for what you want. If not, you are not going to get it.
Believe in what you are doing
if you don’t believe in what you are doing, you are not going to take it seriously. And to do your best work, you must believe in what you are doing. Anatole France once said, “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.” If you believe in what you are doing, you will be good at it. Do you believe in what you are doing?
Accept yourself for who you really are. If you don’t have the courage to accept yourself, no one is going to accept you. Stop treating yourself badly. You deserve the best things in life. And you deserve to treat yourself really well.
No matter what you are going through in your life, no matter where you are in your life, do not give up. It is not the time to give up. It is the time to wake up! There is still life. When there is life, you can still do more things. You can change your life. You can defeat your enemies. You can walk away from those who are not for you.
Before you give up, before you say no to life, remember, every day is a new day. For that reason, you still have hope. Do not forget yourself. No matter what, say “yes to your life.” If you haven’t accepted yourself, try these strategies.
If you want something small for yourself, don’t worry yourself about thinking big. But if you want to achieve great things, you must think big. You must work really hard to make your dreams come true. And you must expect the best for yourself. As Charles Spurgeon once said, “You don’t always get what you want, but you always get what you think you’re going to get.”
When it comes to chasing your dreams, your past is not relevant. Your past mistakes are not relevant. Your past failures are not relevant. The only thing you can do with your past is to learn from it. Nothing more, nothing less.
Your dream will come true if you take action. Do not let fear stop your dream from happening. Start small. Build it day by day. Do not wait for the perfect time to change your life. The perfect time to change is now. If not now, then when?
When you are starting out, don’t worry about mistakes. They will happen. And they are going to happen. You cannot stop yourself from making mistakes. And you cannot avoid mistakes the first time. But do not make it a habit of making careless mistakes. If you do not know what you are doing, ask for help. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness; it is a sign of strength.
So if you want to grow, just know that you are not going to get it right the first time. According to Barbara Sher, “You don’t have to get it right the first time.” You can do it if you do not give up. You can do it if you have the courage to fail. Permit me to ask you. Do you have the courage to fail?
