I Will Not Settle For Less; To Fail Or To Succeed

Starting sweet may make you stay but how often will life do that?
We often feel bad when we fail.
We fail when we do things that we are not supposed to do.
We also fail when we do not do things that we are supposed to do.
Either doing or not doing can cause failure.
A failure is one who has consistently failed and has accepted it as fate.
Consistent failure does not make a person a failure; loosing hope does.
When people give up, they resign to fate.
As far as you’ve got hope, you can try one more time. In each new time you try, ensure to do everything right.
As far as you do your best, you’ll often learn new things. Each new lesson learnt accumulates and becomes relevant to the next attempt.
Improvement, developement, advancement and all forms of growth, come from an increment. Much accomplishment is simply the summation of all the little increments in accomplishment.
Consistent increment may not be visible instantly, but time keeps record and will display the collective result in each next attempt to succeed.

Time may have passed
and all you’ve done may look like waste.
Don’t just get pissed
and choose to resign in a haste.
All you have wished
and are doing, will work out your taste.

The fact that you once failed or failed over and over again, does not disqualify you from the race of success.
Success is by choice, but it has it’s principles: winners never quit and quitters never win.
To join the league of success, you must learn from your mistakes. Determine your journey and keep moving step by step. Keep this piece at the back of your mind; when the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
Success is for the tough, it’s not for those who quit.
Mistakes are part of success as long as you didn’t quit.
Failure is an illusion that capitalizes on fear.
Success is a journey where faith dictates the pace.
Fear recognizes facts but magnifies danger, faith recognizes facts but believes in the way.
Obstacles may line the path, but the way is still the way; you may break through or jump across, but ahead lies the crown.
To reach your dream is to succeed whether or not there are obstacles.
The one who works in fear, focuses on the obstacles. The one who works in faith, focuses on the way. They both may share the same dream, but dreams await those that get to them.
You may know all the theories surrounding a thing but results come from processes and doing the right things.
You may read on swimming all you like but if you’ve not entered water, you’re not a swimmer yet.
It’s the same with a bicycle, you can only ride if you can. The way to know a rider is by making a bicycle available and by observing the ride.
Falling on a bicycle does not mean that you can never learn, giving up on trying again simply means that you’ve stifled your chance.
Each time you fall, get up and try again. That is exactly what we all did.
The more you ride, the better you get at it and after quite a while, you will hardly ever fall.
You may have a high taste and a love for excellence, never get discouraged when your hit is less than your aim. Keep repeating the process till you find out all it’s tricks.
Practice makes perfect, repetition makes for emphasis, consistency enhances reliability and diligence aids precision.
You can fulfil your destiny, you can achieve your dreams, you can live the life you love and reach the heights you wish; only remember to learn and be consistent with what it takes. Don’t deviate from the process because progress leads to success. Stay at it, you’ll make it, not everything starts sweet.
How to start may not be up to you, but staying is up to you. If the end is sweet and is important to you, then start and stay in it, however rough or tough it is.
Build on what you have and reach out for what you can, but giving up for fear of failure is not what it takes.
It takes skills and it takes progress, all of these accumulate as long as you learn and grow. Mistakes have their lessons and when seeds stay, they grow. Every venture has challenges, there’s no shortcut to it. Take the steps to success, and success you will reach.
Make your daily progress and maintain your best pace. The more of it you do, the better at it you get. At each subsequent evaluation, you’ll find yourself faster, better and higher than you previously were at it.

Good things may look bad at the onset; smooth things may start rough.
Success may start with failure, but it must never remain there.
Opportunities never appear as such, they often come disguised as challenges or work.
Who would ever believe that there’s a good side to mistakes?
Mistake is a teacher; a very painful one. But if you take his lessons, you will often excel more.
Don’t be scared of learning, never hesitate to learn more.
Time will pass it’s verdict and the cumulative will emerge.
Your tiny, little lessons that you gathered as you moved will far outweigh the progress of those who quit the race and stopped.
Massive leaps are sure to come, huge breaks and swift successes, sure come from time to time. But don’t neglect to be consistent with the things that lift you up.
I have stressed my point enough and should face some other thoughts but it does not stop at knowing, it should show in what we do.
This is my opinion; take a look at where you are?
You must not remain there, you can move to where or what you like.
Choose the stuff you love and resolve to make it work.
Stick with it for as long as it takes to make your dream come true.
I have failed before and may fail again but I will sure reach my dream.
What matters to me is success and I will do what it takes.
Define your own successes and do the things they take.
Life for me is success and I will not settle for less.

Who am I really? Can that be defined yet? Probably by the time I'm long gone and all the pieces of my activities are compiled and analysed then you can know what you want to know about me. Meanwhile, I write. Not because I love writing but because I love people. I love to care and love to share. I'm a deep thinker and I love to believe in the impossible. The ideal is attainable and a shot at it must be given. Don't say 'It won't work' rather ask 'how will it work? Nobody is ever doomed unless they made the choice. To resist good and to adopt evil is already doom. To loose hope is to choose doom but to believe that every step is a passing phase leading towards your hope is to choose progress. I may go on and on but my posts say it all. I don't force you to agree, I only say enjoy!

    This is absolutely amazing. I might have to make this into a poster and put it up on my wall. I especially love the line “You may read on swimming all you like but if you’ve not entered water, you’re not a swimmer yet.” Hits it right on the head.

    • I’m glad you like it! Some people simply fail, due to their fear of failure. Succeeding requires courageous steps and consistency, irrespective of occasional stops. To stop is to truncate the journey. Not attempting means living on without change or improvement. Thanks so much for your response. I’m excited! 🙂
