10 Phrases You Should Never Tell Yourself If You Want to Succeed
1. ”It’s too late/early” – Phrases You Should Never Tell Yourself
When to start is a question often asked, even though the answer is easy and always the same – now!
By telling yourself it is never too late or early to begin, you are helping yourself eliminate the habit of using excuses to “start tomorrow”.
As Scott Fitzgerald said “It’s never too late, or in my case too early, to become whoever you want to become.”
2. ”It isn’t worth the try”
In order to succeed at anything, first, you must understand that long term goals are not reached within short time frames. This is a fact understood by all successful people that know the importance of consistency. With the “It won’t be worth it” mindset, you will never get to say “It was worth it”.
3. ”I don’t need anybody else!”
We all know that empowering moment when we feel like we can do anything and everything on our very own, but can we really?
It is good to want to be able to reach your goals by yourself, but one must be open for help and empowerment by others too, since great goals are heavy to carry a helping hand from time to time will only expedite your progress.
4. ”I don’t know how” – Phrases You Should Never Tell Yourself
Being ready to succeed means being ready to learn, welcoming new information and being as open minded as one can be. This means getting rid of doubts that you are able to learn something new, and actually being able to excel at it, remember if you never try, you will surely never know.
5. ”I’m not good enough yet”
There is no such thing as not being good enough, since all goals are a process. The only thing you need to feel like you are worthy of your success is time and patience, the patience to wait for progress by working towards it everyday and the faith to carry on even if you get held up along the way.
You are always good enough. If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will.
6. ”What if I fail?” – Phrases You Should Never Tell Yourself
When has focusing on the bad ever done you good?
Putting your focus on the things that may or may not go wrong will never lead you forward.
In order to have the mindset it takes to not lose your motivation, you need to feed your mind positivity by showing it what you can reach if you don’t give up. If you can conceive it and believe it, you can achieve it.
7. ”What if it’s not what I wished for?”
Your success can be less than you wished for, only if you work less than you should have.
Nothing big comes from small, easy changes, little work and no sweat. You get what you pay for whether the currency is money or labour, so make sure you empty your wallet and your lungs when it comes to reaching your expectations.
8. ”I’m too busy, I’ll do it once I have time”
You are never too busy to start improving yourself, because putting your time into anything that doesn’t satisfy you is a waste of precious time.
They say time is money, how are you going to get what you paid for if you have no time to chase your dreams?
9. ”I aim for perfection” – Phrases You Should Never Tell Yourself
Nothing is perfect, and even magic won’t fix that. The only thing that you can fix is your fear of failing and the thought that anything less than perfect is not good enough.
Learn from failure, let yourself get better with time and practice. Fail forward and you’ll land closer to your dreams each time you’re brave enough to just go for it.
10. ”There will always be someone better”
One crucial thing you should focus on in order to succeed is, truly, yourself, your own success and progress and how much better you can get with time. Pointing your view towards others and their accomplishments can either be crippling and extremely limiting because you will never overtake what you have your focus on. Think bigger.
In the end, remember that you are doing this for yourself, by yourself. Even if you feel like everything is against your progress, never limit yourself and always believe in the strength that you hold within you. Believe in what you want SO MUCH, it has NO CHOICE but to manifest itself.
