THE MAN WHO NEVER MADE A MISTAKE, NEVER MADE ANYTHING!
“To guarantee success, act as if it were impossible to fail.” – Dorothea Brande
How would you do things differently, if you knew that you couldn’t fail? How many things that you have never done would you now attempt if success was inevitable? Makes you think doesn’t it?
Some might say that to take these words at face value, you would soon become a laughing stock; someone who was thought of as “not altogether there!” And yet … isn’t it possible that by first having a willingness to attempt things that you are much more likely to succeed than someone who doesn’t even try? Secondly if you have an anticipation that things will go well for you, aren’t they are more likely to go in that direction, than if you attempt to do something in a half-hearted attitude?
In the end we all chose how to live our lives, who we will listen to and whose opinions we reject. If you are able to ignore and be independent of the good or bad opinion of others, then you will no longer be concerned with what people think of you. Instead you will be free to chose to act or not act when opportunity comes
knocking at your door.
Also it’s worth pointing out here, the more mistakes you make, the more you’ll learn and the more likelihood of you being successful in the long run! I often tell my clients “If you are going to make a mistake, you might as well make a big one! That way you’ll learn so much more quickly than someone who is in a state of trepidation or fear about making mistakes!
