You assess a situation and based on your knowledge and experience.
If you make mistakes. You re-evaluate. You act again.
Your training has given you confidence.
This is simple enough. Because the status quo is often comfortable and safe, many people look for guarantees before taking independent action. They want assurances from others that all outcomes will be favourable.
Yet, in seeking assurances, they frequently receive cautions. These cautions can easily be used as excuses for inaction. Those who love you the most may be the loudest in warning you not to risk failure.
If you always follow the crowd, you will always end up where the crowd ends up.
If you do what others do you will only get the results they get!
Make a personal decision to do what it will take to succeed. The success principles we teach at The Moore Consortium are known to many but lived by few.
Most people know what they should be doing but lack either the will or the self-confidence to train or start a business, or make an investment or establish a friendship.
This is not the independent you.
Most people are so afraid of failing that they concentrate all their efforts on that; not failing. And so they never really succeed.
They only survive.
It is only through ‘failure’ that true success can be gained.
In truth there is no failure, you only discover a way not to do something.
As the NLP rule states, "There is no failure, only feedback".
Look at Thomas Edison, one of the inventors of the 20th century. When he invented the electric light bulb he used over 2000 different materials for the filament until he discovered a combination that worked.
Years later when he was being interviewed a reporter asked him "When you tried for the 2000th time to build a coil for your light bulb, and it failed, didn't you feel disheartened, didn't you feel like giving up?"
He replied, "Not at all. I didn't fail. I discovered 2000 ways not to make a light bulb but I got closer to one way that would. So every failure, as you put it, was in fact a success!"
Get the point?
