Life is full of demotivators. When you make a decision to work diligently toward something, you might go full-force for some time, but eventually your energy is going to drop, your focus may fall away, and you might get discouraged or disinterested. It happens to everyone.
The key to succeeding, though, is perseverance. You have to accept those down times for what they are…maybe your body is telling you that you need a little break. But you have to move past it. “The best way to ensure success is always to try just one more time.” Get back on the horse.
Is there something in your life that you focused on intensely for a while, and you loved every minute of it, but then you somehow fell away from it? It happens. It happened to me recently. I got to the point where I was going through the motions of writing my daily emails, writing daily blog posts, creating videos, and mentoring people. But you have to move beyond that.
My daily email this morning was about luck, and how it doesn’t exist. The people who are “lucky” or are “in the right place at the right time” put themselves there. You attempt and you fail, and then you get back up and go again…this is the path to success.
So if you have fallen off the proverbial horse recently, or you’re remembering a time in your life when you felt motivated and energized by what you were doing, take this opportunity to get back there. You’re reading this post for a reason. Make the decision right now to get back to that zone. Get back to hard work and diligence and perseverance. Get excited again.
Imagine having reached your goal, right now. Close your eyes and visualize having everything you want in life. How amazing does that feel? Visualization will keep you on track because it reminds you why you started working toward your goal in the first place. Say out loud, “YES!” Jump up and pump your fists, do anything you have to do to get some energy flowing through your body. Get excited about your work again.
Everyone falls. Everyone. The successful people just learn to accept the fall, and get back up. So get back on the horse.
