“Success Is Predictable….I had developed deep feelings of inferiority and inadequacy. I had fallen into the mental trap of assuming that people who were doing better than me were actually better than me. What I learned was that this was not necessarily true. They were just doing things differently, and what they had learned to do, within reason, I could learn as well.” – Eat That Frog, page xii
It is normal that we take a look around at the people who surround us and wonder what makes them so special. If they are successful it is human nature to assume that they are “lucky”, because that is usually the general consensus. We do not realize that these are not our own thoughts, but the thoughts of others, that have been repeated so many times that it because a false truth. Its easy to say that someone else is successful because they have something you do not. However, we are all successful, it all begins with taking the first step towards achieving whatever goal we decide to go after. The difference between “winning” and “losing”, being special or not, is making the decision to act. ACT. If your thoughts lie with believing that everyone else is lucky, that you have all the bad luck, that things never go your way, STOP. We are our own worst enemy. Figure out what that special person is doing differently, learn it and see results.
Let 2012 be the year that we let go of all the silly notions of not being good enough. lets GET IT! Giddy up! Happyville, hear we come!
