The powers

It wouldn’t be too much for you to expect things to go your way for once right? Well,there is a way that would make success to come to you easily and its does not come with strings attached to it. You will or not be surprised to know that its within yourself. Yeah,its completely free because its withing you and its attitude.

Hung Downs stated that a happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances but rather a person with certain set of attitudes. This means that you and you alone control your attitude.It influences your individual choice of action and response to challenges,incentives and success. Its the sum of all your thoughts and feelings towards any issue. The way you perceive the things that happen to you,the way you react to life’s hurdles and setbacks and how you cope when curve balls are thrown your way are the major determinant that differentiate successful outcomes from failure all in the name of your attitude.

Positive attitude helps you to accept constructive criticism because there is always ways you can improve if you are open to progress. Positive attitude will help you to embrace the challenges because no one wants to sit idle for too long anyway. It will make you feel strong and act in an adaptive way to any given situation.

The most successful people always thinks about what they want and how to get it most of the time. In this, developing a positive attitude that changes their entire life. When you think about what you want,you feel great and in control of your life. Personally I can testify to this because thinking about how I want to succeed in life or to achieve my goals makes me feel stronger,alive and powerful even though I have not archieved them yet.

If you develop a positive attitude you will have secured your ticket to success in advance. Think,act and talk with enthusiasm and you will attract positive result. Start thinking of yourself as successful because success is the state of mind.

Think of your attitude as the mental filter through which you experience the world. See the world through the filter of optisim,that is the glass being half full rather the glass being half empty. Think of I can instead if I can’t. Do not dwell on problems, instead concentrate on solutions. See good in others instead of finding faults in others. Focus on your blessings instead of your limitations.

When the child is learning how to walk and falls down 50 times,they never think to themselves,”this isn’t for me” he or she keeps going for weeks and weeks with a positive attitude until he gets it right. Keep that childish drive. Focus and keep trying no matter what,with a state mind that you are going to get it right.

Don’t let criticism, rejection, doubt, ridiculous and humiliation get into you are lose your focus.


While celebrating success we should also highlight the epic journey towards success that are filled with trials,tribulations,upsets,setbacks and failures. Its not as glamorous to talk about those things but its important. Failure as much as its hurt is an important part of our life. Most successful people in our life have failed most of the time.

“I have missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. 26 times,I have been trusted to take the winning shot and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.”

_ Michael Jordan

In order to grow,you need to fail,it is life’s ultimate lesson. Failing will happen ,no matter how hard you try to avoid it so you might as well have a ‘no fear’ attitude towards it. This should not mean you should expect to fail,but when it happens accept it.

Failure has value. Through failure you will get to know yourself better and you will learn from your mistakes. Failure makes us rethink,reconsider and find new ways and strategies to achieve your goals.

When you think about failure,you should not think in a negative light. Yes its painful and causes emotional turmoil and upsets. It inflicts agonizing pangs of guilt ,regrets and remorse. It may even cut deep like a razor slicing its way to your inner core,yet its necessary. The key to success is in how you handle failure. Handling failure does not come Naturally to some people. It an acquired skill. Some of our emotions tell us to sulk and avoid any situation in future that are likely to put us in the line to feel the pain of failure and its where we go astray.

So many times in our life our fear of falling keeps us from beginning. We have to ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’. Start with one small thing,make it something you know you will succeed at….,build your confidence and momentum and keep going. I say this because,the regret of never having tried can hurt worse than trying and failing.

Bear in mind that,the many times you fail are many steps to your success.


Commitment is the essence of ultimate secret to getting absolutely everything you want. Its willingness to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goals. Willingness is a mental attitude that state if it takes waking up 3 in the morning to accomplish your goals then you will wake up 3 in the morning. This means that to succeed,you will make a commitment to do whatever it takes regardless of the nature of the conditions involved.

This means that you have to make a commitment to achieve your goals then you will follow through with relentless determination and action until you achieve the desired result.

There is power that exist and its becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want and you are fully determined not to quit until you achieve it.

Commitment is the act of having passion for what you do. Its helps you discover how bad you want to succeed. It leads to ownership and ownership will lead you to success.

Commitment is the principal of all. It will help you to make a pledge that will obligates you to do what it takes for you to succeed.

If there is anything that can affect how you think its commitment. Its extremely powerful and to succeed you need perseverance. Perseverance can only happen if you have a heartfelt,longterm commitment. The temptation to give up will arise but it is commitment you will have made that will help you get through and find success.

Jeff Keller argued in his book that,when you are committed,its likely you will not be derailed. Those who are not committed are derailed easily thus not achieving their goals

For instance,most people start a business with approach of ‘I will give it one year if it does not work out after one year I will quit This is where commitment separates the winners from losers. The committed people are going to hang in there and prevail no matter what. If it takes a little longer then they thought so be it,but they will never quit. Those who are not committed are going to give up the ship when things don’t work out.

Just stay true to yourself,set long term goals,turn problems into opportunities and make commitment to do whatever it takes and start moving forward.

Remember, one person with a commitment is worth more than 100 people who have only an interest.
