Remove Obstacles in Life and Achieve Success
We often get in our own way of achieving our goals. We tell ourselves, that we are not good enough, not smart enough, or that we are simply not capable. We quit before we even really try. This can be true to issues with self-confidence, failing and taking that as an end point, or constantly comparing ourselves to others. We have to change this way of thinking to having confidence in ourselves and our abilities.
To being willing to get up time and again each time we fail, and to only compare ourselves to others if we are trying to learn from them to be more successful. If we are willing to take these simple steps, we will find ourselves to be more open-minded, and more successful. If we can deal with the issues, and face these heads on, we are capable of reaching out true and full potential.
1. Try Again and Again Until You Get It
Let’s start with the concept of quitting before we really try, or failing and stopping with this one set back. Some of the most successful people in the world have failed far many more times than they have succeeded. The difference is that they pick themselves up each time and try again until they get it right.
2. Learn From Negative Feedback
Another important quality they demonstrate if their ability to take constructive criticism and learn from their mistakes. Those who thrive, are those who learn to stop shutting down and being defensive. They ask for feedback, in fact they blossom from it. They take what others saw as the issues with their project or performance, and integrate that feedback into their current work. Often with this willingness to make these changes, and this improved version, the person will increasingly successful. Be willing to go back to the drawing board as many times as needed, as the ultimate goal is a strong project that you can take pride in.
3. Comparing Ourselves to Others
Another way in which we can be more successful is to comparing ourselves to others in a negative way. Meaning, we should not compare our work, our pace, or our successes to anyone else. If we are truly doing the best we can, if we do our job with diligence and integrity that we are genuinely proud of, that is all that matters. In life and in work, we miss out on being content, and celebrating each small success, if we are constantly looking over our shoulder at what other people are doing. Instead, we should look in the mirror and assess how we are doing, and let ourselves know that we are proud of ourselves. Another spin on this is to admire other people for their success, don’t envy them.
If there is someone accessible and willing, that you are comfortable approaching, do so. Pick their brain and find out what works for them, and what has not. This advice and time is exceptionally valuable. You can get great yips that you can integrate into your own work, and you can save yourself time by not repeating the mistakes of others. If you follow these three simple steps, you can truly remove obstacles from your life, and move yourself toward the success you have been dreaming of.
