hispanic motivational speakerRoad Trip: Directions for Driving to Success

 

Subject: Success, Motivation, Overcoming Failure, Adversity, Planning



Fear of success is as powerful if not more, than the fear of failure. When we fear either one, our subconscious mind works to prevent what we fear.

People fear success because of low self-esteem. They don’t truly believe they deserve success. People have a fear of failure because they don’t want anyone else to find out they don’t deserve success. In either case, the logic is faulty.

If you feel you don’t deserve success, well, you’re right. If you feel success is within you’re reach, well, you’re right. What you think and how you act, determine who you will be.

To deserve success is to think that there are some people who are entitle to it and other who are not. Wrong! Success, as Earl Nightingale once said, plays no favorites. Success is color-blind, gender-blind, agnostic and/or indifferent to the individual. Success only favors those who take the chances and never give up.

When you drive to a new location and get lost, we are thankful for traffic signs that tell us: “One Way, Wrong Way, Slow Down, Passing Zone and so on. These signs are there to keep us safe and guide and deliver us to our destination. Failure is just another traffic sign indicating what it will take to reach your goal or destination.

For example, selling services or products requires a certain skill set and in order to succeed you have to learn that “One Way”. When a plan fails, maybe you need to ‘Slow Down’ and observe what the market needs or what your competitors are doing. Or if we have a lot of competition maybe we should enter a “NO PASS ZONE” and concentrate on business our competitors are passing up. If you’ve lost your way in business or life, failure tells you “Wrong Way” and you need turnaround and find a better way.   When we lose our way, it’s typically because we’ve not done the following:

1) Clearly define our destination (goal) and our purpose (why are we going there)


2) What do we need to make the trip successful (products or services)
 

3) Create a map on how to get there (strategy, business plan)
 

4) Maps can change over time; constantly ask for directions along the way (find role models in similar business who can guide you) to make sure you still moving in the right direction
 

5) If you still get lost, don’t be afraid to ask for directions (i.e., help)
 

6) Last tip, make sure you have enough gas (money) for the trip

As individuals we don’t fear planning a trip. We don’t even fear the ‘not knowing’ what to expect. We simply plan to the best of our ability and hope that when we get there it’s everything we imagined it would be.

And do things always work out the way we ‘planned’ them? Of course not! Life and business planning are no different. Sometimes no matter how much pre-planning was done, the trip turned out to be a dud. Then there are other times when little went into the planning and the trip turned out better than planned. In either case, you never know until you try it. The former needed more planning; the latter was laden with luck. I’d rather plan instead of depending on luck.

If we were all afraid of bad trips or vacations, we’d never leave the house. In life, if we want new experiences and adventures, we have to leave our house and its security and venture out into unfamiliar (and somewhat scary) territory. But that’s what makes life exciting and worth living. Never fear doing, fear not doing and regretting it.

Lastly, failing does not mean you have to surrender your driver’s license. It simply means you need better directions in order to get to your intended destination.
