Failure is not an option. Period. End of story.
So often, I hear people say “I can’t”. You can’t, or you won’t try? Yes you can. “Just do it” (Thank you, Nike). You can and you will.
A positive attitude will take you where you want to go. Can’t achieve your goal in an instant, all at once, or in a short time frame? Measure your progress in degrees of success. A small step forward is still progress toward your goals. Don’t sell yourself short. You have more gumption than you know.
What keeps you going in the face of adversity?
Keeping a positive attitude keeps me on track. There is always that small voice in the background saying “you can’t, you’re not good enough”. It takes a lot to beat the voice down. I need to be reminded often that “failure is not an option”. How? I wear this necklace at all times. Okay, I did take it off for my son’s and my daughter’s wedding to wear a more formal piece. Otherwise, I never take it off. Each day I wake up and look in the mirror, I am reminded that I can do it. Failure is not an option.
