Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. ~~ Thomas Jefferson~~
Personalities with a very strong and intact self discipline and determination are the ones who succeed in life. This is primarily because they are not easily overwhelmed by the many challenges and circumstances that come their way. This quality is what individuals should essentially develop in themselves to achieve their goals. There are people who, once they fail to reach their goals, easily give up on it and set a new one. While this may be good in a sense that they have alternative paths to take, they are disadvantaged for they get used to succumbing to their failures, hence developing the habit of escaping difficult situations.
If you want to achieve all of your goals in life, you have to learn how to embrace failure and perceive it as a lesson. Consider it a strength you can use during your rough journey through reality. Through this journey, you must not easily be overwhelmed by failure. This is a given if you want to make it to the finish line and make your dreams come true. Taking this to heart can surely help you achieve any of your goals. On the other hand, expect to achieve nothing if you possess a pessimistic mind and you give up easily. Relying on luck alone is not enough to make it through. Yes you can be fortunate, everyone could, but if you can’t even manage to come close to at least one of your goals in life, you cannot manage even if the best of luck comes your way.
You must always remember that taking shortcuts to achieve success in an instant is extremely disadvantageous. This is especially true for people who are already halfway through the process. This will give them a false confidence that instead of working hard, their goals can be met out of fortune. Nonetheless, people with the right mindset can consider fortune as an advantage. This means that if you are completely dedicated to making your dreams come true even without fortune, you truly believe that fortune is only a complement to your hard work. While every person has their own identity and beliefs, will power and self discipline remains to be all it takes for a man to succeed in life.
