Why The Struggle For Success Is Worth The Fight
Life can have it's ups and downs, love and pain, total driven freedom, and road blocks. But could we actually achieve success by embracing the struggle of everyday life? The answer is "yes". Almost every successful person has a success story but what normally makes a success story good is the struggle and the failure the now successful person had to endure. The problem is that most people let the idea of failing stop them from ever getting started.
What stops success is more of a mental game not the struggle itself. The struggle that you may have to face may be hard, but nothing in life is promised to be easy. People who are successful kept their eye on the prize. They knew what the reward was and nothing was gonna stop them from getting it. That really needs to be your attitude if you want to survive the struggle and achieve what ever it is your after.
Lets observe what it will actually take to endure a great struggle. I have an idea! Lets start this discussion with the topic of your idea's and how to let it be your motivating drive through every bit of struggle you may have to face.
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success, that is way great spiritual giants are produced.” Swami Vivekananda
It all starts with an idea! One day your sitting in your thinking chair with your handy dandy notebook. All of a sudden a light bulb turns on and you got it "A Idea".Or you just figured out what blues clues was. Ideas that you develop in your mind are not coming to you for no reason. When you fall in love with a great idea then fate is pusing you to follow that path. Your Idea can impact the world, but you have to really want it. The Idea is the prize. Not the money or the end results! Not every idea is a good idea. A bad idea is usually surrounded around selfish reason or just for money. That is not nearly enough to keep you motivated. You will fail before you even start. Your idea has to be one that you passionately love. Here is why money is not enough to ensure you survive the struggle.
"Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants". Benjamin Franklin
The truth is simple to understand. Nobody really actually cares for money. The only reason why money is so important is because it effects our life when we feel we don't have enough of it. But even though some people get more then enough they still over spend and want more. Money is more of an addiction, not a passion. If your great idea is about the money you'll never be happy doing what you're doing. Chances are that you will fail in the very beginning. although we feel we want more because we think money will eliminate our struggle, honestly we adjust and get use to the struggle which over a short time makes the money not a factor because you already have adapted to your current environment. The struggle! So rethink your idea and the money will follow, You don't have to chase it. Its only paper and is really just as worthless as monopoly money.
"All that we are is the result of what we have thought. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him". Buddha
To achieve anything you have to think positive about what you are doing. You have to know that what your doing is right. You have to know that you are confident about what your doing. You have to know that you will succeed, and you have to trust the process. I'm not here to promote the law of attraction. I'm not gonna tell you that your thoughts will attract what you wan't. What I will say is that with the right thoughts and actions combined there is nothing you cannot achieve. With the right idea, attitude, and thoughts a struggle really is nothing but another part of your success!
