Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way, you are right. – Henry Ford
If you genuinely set out to accomplish something, do you expect failure?
If so, why even begin?
Every inventor has a vision. Whether it was the Wright brothers who wanted to see man fly or Philo T. Farnsworth who wanted to watch moving pictures on a TV screen, they fully expected to eventually succeed.
Success or failure is a foregone conclusion.
If you expect positive results, you will work toward those and not stop until you complete the mission.
- If, however, you actually expect failure…
- If every obstacle seems to prove you’re doomed for disappointment…
- And if you convince yourself all the more that you are destined to fail, then guess what?
You might as well hang up your thinking cap and go home. Veg out in front of the boob tube.
Most people who constantly fail see it as destiny.
They expect failure.
Whenever you start some new venture, no matter how big or small, tell yourself that you are a winner and imagine your successful conclusion.
Don’t be foolhardy about it. Do your homework. The Internet makes it so easy. You literally have a vast library at your fingertips.
I mean… I had to hop on a bicycle as a kid and pedal my way three miles one way to our local library in order to get my knowledge fix. Now all you need to do is hop on your laptop.
Ready to tackle a project? Make a checklist as you prepare to launch your endeavor. Follow through with your preparation. Keep your thoughts positive. And go through every step in your mind from the beginning until the end.
Visualize your success. Make sure you plan interim goals so that you can actually see and measure progress as things start to gel.
It’s like we say in our book, “Get Happy, Write Away” Your mind can influence your body so much more than you realize. If your mind is saying, “I don’t feel well” then, guess what?
Your body says, “You don’t feel well.” In that case, your mind is telling your body to get with the program and stop feeling good. The mind has a strong influence over the body.
I hope today you’re not in that frame of mind. You have powerful ideas to develop. And speaking of ideas, consider doing the #300Ideas Challenge.
The #300Idea Challenge is my own brainchild. It’s the implementation process from my book, “The BIG Marketing Idea Book: Ignite winning IDEAS, get MORE hot breakthroughs – and ELECTRIFY your business… In Just 30 Days.”
The book has a recipe in it for thinking up Big Ideas. (And then a real recipe for my family’s Italian sauce, because you gotta eat, right?!)
There are 30 worksheets included in the eBook, enough space to write down 10 ideas a day.
And 10 ideas a day x 30 days = 300 ideas.
Imagine what your business would look like if you were churning out 300 ideas per month!
Of course you won’t act upon every idea. But out of all those ideas will be a handful worth pursuing today. And one of them may end up making you a lot of money.
So check it out now and grab it while the grabbin’s good. I’m in the midst of implementing a lot of new ideas, myself, and this eBook is on the table for a potential makeover. When it’s ready to meet the world again, It will probably be more expensive. So now’s a good time to get it and get busy planning your next “hitting-it-out-of-the-park” season.
See you on the other side!
Yours for bigger, better, and the most winning-est ideas ever…
