If you apply the principles of this quote, it can literally change the course of your life. Here it is …
This quote can guide your life into something great if you truly understand it. Let’s get real, everyone wants success in one way or another.
For some, it’s a monetary success. It’s millions of dollars, fancy cars, private jets, and lavish life.
For others, it’s inner peace. It’s being able to enjoy every day, give back, and help others.
It’s a different version for every person but it’s inherent to humans to want to achieve and prosper.
So what does it mean? Why does it matter?
Let’s break it down …
“Success is not final.”
Success is defined as the accomplishment of an aim or purpose.
The first part of the quote is important and easily missed by so many people on the quest for greatness. Even if you work tirelessly, learn new skills, and grow to achieve success, that does not mean success will stick around.
You have to stay consistent and evolve to keep your level of success. And once you achieve your goal, it’s only natural to want more and keep striving for greatness.
“Failure is not fatal.”
So many people are terrified of failure when in reality, failure is part of any process. No one achieves greatness without failure along the way.
But so many people get failure wrong and interrupt it by thinking failure means it’s time to quit. In reality it’s the exact opposite.
Failure, a way to show you what didn’t work so you can adapt and overcome.
Thomas Edison, Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, and 99% of successful people used what they learned from failures to create what they wanted in life.
“It is the courage to continue that counts.”
Courage is simply being face to face with your fear, and doing it anyway. Often times making a change in life is scary.
But for the most part, it’s only a perception of fear, which usually comes from the survival part of your brain that is just trying to protect you from perceived danger.
But if you’re trying to achieve a life goal and get out of your comfort zone, there is no need to let fear hold you back. Not living a life true to yourself is the number one regret of the dying.
Don’t give into fear, move towards it so much that you become fearless!
Ask anyone who’s achieved anything great in life, spiritually, financially or otherwise, and they will tell you it wasn’t always easy. Just because you see people’s highlight reel of life on Instagram, doesn’t mean it’s like that 24/7.
Remember to not compare yourself to others on your own journey of finding success. Keep this quote close and look at it regularly.
Never give up, keep striving, find new strategies, and have the courage to live a life that is true to yourself. I promise you won’t regret it.
