THE FINISH LINE
Reaching The Finish Line
Many aspire to be great entrepreneurs as we see the spoils after the fact – the big corner office high in the sky, corporate perks, power, money, etc. What few understand is that being a great entrepreneur means having to stand completely alone with your beliefs. If you have the idea, the passion, the will, and you’re thinking about it day after day…this is the time to do it.
You are never too old or too young. This is the time to strive to overcome your fears. Where the odds are greater, the prize gets much bigger. After all the efforts you have exerted, the prize of success shall be a well-deserved one.
Seeing the realization of your dreams will be life changing. Weather one believes it or not "there’s a distinction between people who are successful and people who are not,”. See opportunities instead of obstacles is a must accepting ‘no-excuses no matter how big or small the obstacle. Get really good at getting past the excuses and saying ‘Why not me? With a no-excuses mentality you will see opportunity where you once seen obstacles.
There's always a solution mindset is all about disrupting and re-architecting your beliefs in self and your ability to make your dreams a become a reality, by ridding yourself of all of the beliefs that are compromising success.
In order to change your behavior you must first understand the power of investing in key capital: Yourself. It’s important to really take the time to invest in oneself personally.

It is also a challenge to build a high tolerance for risk and failure which is extremely important prior to pursuing your entrepreneurial endeavors.

No matter what goals your trying to accomplish continuous forward motion is the path. Failure and setbacks happen all the time, but you have to be willing to ride the unpredictable waves of those setbacks without getting discouraged.

What’s your choice when it comes to reaching the finish line success or failure?
Success, Happiness and a More Meaningful Life
By June Stepansky 06/01/20: What is an important key to achieving personal success? Before this question can be answered, we must define what we mean by personal success. Many of us equate personal success with power and financial success, and indeed we must have enough self-esteem and enough financial security in our lives to feel confident that we are meeting our necessary responsibilities, but in my definition of personal success we must view our lives in all of its varied aspects. That means attention must be paid not only to our work and our careers, but also to our personal needs--health, recreation, personal relationships, and growth. In today's fast paced environment, this takes a special commitment to dedicate ourselves to planning and balance.
Barriers to Success
There are often common barriers that block us from achieving success. Before we can examine these barriers, we must define which type of success we are seeking, because the two separate definitions of success demand different strategies and follow different paths. Financial and career success demand that we learn to work hard, pick ourselves up from our failures and continue to constantly do what is necessary to move forward toward our goals, making success the first priority in our lives and not allowing failure to deter us. If we make this choice, then we can be confident that we will eventually succeed.
Success in one's personal life has a different path. Our own private needs and our personal relationships must then become part of our decision-making process. These more personal decisions may take time and energy away from our drive toward our financial and career success. Each person must make his own decision as how to continue to move forward, but each decision that is made has its consequences. If we choose career success at any cost, then the personal side of our lives may suffer. If we choose our personal success path, then we may make less money and feel perhaps a lesser sense of achievement in our careers. Therefore, the barrier to achieving success is really our own conflict about these choices, and the difficulty in deciding what our choices should be. Once we make our decisions, we can then move quickly toward our selected goals.
Goal setting is an important part of achievement. There are two ways that we set our goals. One is outer driven, and one is inner driven. The outer driven goals are the goals that others set for us. They may be set by our friends, our neighbors, the society in which we live or the prevailing values of our time. The second way we discover our goals is inner driven. It is an internal system which show us what we would like to personally achieve. It is this inner voice that whispers to us who we are and how we can achieve our unique potential. Before we can achieve our goals, we must know ourselves well enough to know what goals we want to achieve and be sure they are our own goals and not the goals that others have set for us. When we know what we really want to accomplish, it is then easier to take those steps which help us to achieve those goals.
How Can we Live an Extraordinary Life?
The extraordinary life is not so much about what a person achieves or what others think of him, but rather how he views his own life and his own achievements in terms of his loving relationships and his competence in adjusting to the difficult demands of living with strength and with dignity, so that he can say when he looks back over the passing years "I have been grateful for the gift of life. I have tried to continue to learn and grow. I have tried to have the courage to follow my internal honesty." This more examined life is an extraordinary life because it leads to more balance, more contentment and to the fulfillment of each individual's personal vision.
