The Real Leaders Are Infact In Short Supply…
“These are the people who believe in themselves”. They believe, they can do wonders, and they do. To accomplish big success, the first condition is “You must first believe it can be done.” This positive thought will develop confidence and will set your mind in motion to find the way to do it.
There will be people who will discourage you, try to drag you back, or even laugh at you. Such time is “real testing time.” If you surrender to negative thoughts and succumb to the negative pressures created by the so-called well-wishers (and that is what they want), you will not be able to break the ice.
Failure is nothing more than a ‘milestone’ in one’s life. There is no successful person who hasn’t seen failures. Failures are in one way necessary, because they make you strong. Tough times, hardships, failures are only the milestones to show you, how far you are from your goal. If you start gasping and sit there holding the milestone, cursing the hardluck or bad luck, you will gain nothing, but will only lose the clear vision of the goal. Sit at the milestone for a while, and make a self-review. Try to find out where things went wrong and what needs to be corrected. An honest introspection will help you find a better way to reach the target. Make sure, the failure doesn’t shake your self confidence, because if your confidence is shaken, you may tend to think, the target is beyond your reach.
At failures, try to think of those successful people who haven’t seen failures, and you will discover there is none. The only thing they carried along was courage. They never lost confidence, and always believed they could do it and they did.
Quite often, we underestimate ourselves and overestimate others. And there is an interesting co-relation. The moment you overestimate others, you automatically become smaller in your own estimation. The more you overestimate others, the more you grow smaller. And as people see in you, what you see in yourself, it becomes more important how you assess yourself.
