Failure is NOT an Option!


In all of your dealings in life, whether it’s looking for your first job, changing careers, interviewing for your dream job, or even going through something in your personal life, you have to believe that failure isn’t an option!

When believing failure isn’t an option something starts to happen to you, almost immediately. You start to make things happen. You think differently. You don’t want to fail and failure isn’t an excuse for you to use anymore. You’re a winner now!

I know you might be laughing at this, but let me tell you about my own experiences and how this type of thinking has benefited me throughout my life. Like a lot of people, I didn’t come from a wealthy family. I didn’t have anything to fall back on if I didn’t “make it” in life. If I didn’t make it happen, it wasn’t going to happen. Period. I know I am not special in this department. A lot of you come from life situations that are less than desirable. The question is, regardless of the situation, how are you going to handle it?

You have to have a winning attitude instead of a losing attitude. Believe you can win, but more specifically learn what it is to win. Learn what you need to do to win. Look at successful people and find out what they’re doing. Can you do what they’re doing? Learn from them. You have more control over your life and career than you will ever realize, so take control!

Don’t look at successful people and think they’re “lucky” or “special” they’re not. They work hard and stay extremely focused on their goals. They don’t think losing thoughts. They think winning thoughts. Failure isn’t an option to them. Believing in yourself is what I want you to start doing. Forget about failure. Not trying is failure. Are you going to stop trying? Are you a loser? Do you want to be a loser?

Most professional athletes understand this type of positive thinking. Can you imagine a professional athlete or Olympian thinking losing thoughts? Now they don’t always win, and you won’t ALWAYS win either but you have to condition yourself to think positive and tell yourself failure isn’t an option! If you don’t think this works try it and see what happens to you. You will be pleasantly surprised. It works!

It is truly amazing what we can do if we put are minds to it. Quit thinking you can’t do something. You can do it, but first you have to start changing the way you think. You have to want to make it happen. You have to say to yourself failure isn’t an option! Now go get it! I hope this helps.

Good luck to you!
