How to use “failure” as your ticket to astounding success

Now, let’s talk about how to use what others call “failure” as
your ticket to astounding success.

Here’s a few things to consider.

You must fight your negative emotions with positive emotions.
We humans are emotional creatures with logical and creative
thinking attached.  You must first fight the battle for your
mind by replacing your negative feelings with positive feelings,
so your logical and creative mind can flourish.

Understand that the act of failing is not failure.  It is rather
a corrective measuring stick in your success toolbox.  This is
the success system that you were born with, and it’s the same
success system that will work for you throughout your life as
long as you do not get in its way with your negative emotions
and clouded thinking.

When looking at, and admiring successful people, always realize
that their success is made up of their ability to correct their
failed attempts and their persistence in testing new approaches
step by step by step towards success.

Your success will be made out of your mistakes that you turn
into successes.  When we get handed a lemon, we’ve got to learn
how to make lemonade.  And that’s what we have to do with our
mistakes and hardships that come our way.  We’ve got to turn
things around and turn them into positives.

When we get handed a lemon, we’ve got to learn how to make lemonade.

You must rise above your failures by using your instinctive success
system that has worked time and time again for you throughout your
life.  If you will get your negative emotions out of the way and
apply positive persistence, there is nothing that can stop you.

What are some negative thoughts that haunt you?

Go through the list of failure symptoms to see which ones may be
holding you back.  Become aware of these symptoms during the activities
of each day.  Think about your feelings as situations arise.  Pay
close attention to your feelings, so you can identify and expose
them for what they are.  And learn to turn these lemons into lemonade.

You must work diligently to make your thinking rational rather than
emotional thinking.  It is good to have positive emotional feelings
and to have positive rational thinking.  You will learn your strengths
and your weaknesses.  Learn to focus and use your strengths to your
advantage and improve your weaknesses as time goes by.

If there are areas in which you are weak, look for other people to
fill in those gaps in your effort.  This makes for good teamwork or
provides opportunities for others to be of positive service in
their lives, too.

Focus on your past successes, so the process of achieving them becomes
your model for achieving future successes, too.  Control your thoughts
by filling your mind with positive thoughts and feelings.

Yes, you will have negatives come before you.  It happens to all of us.

You must choose how to deal with these negatives and then take positive
action on your choices and measure the results you get against the
outcomes your desired, and make adjustments and take action again.

Fighting failure feelings is a battle that continually goes on in your
mind, and the best defense against these negative feelings is your
strong positive offense of using your power of choice, taking decisive
action, and observing the results to make course corrections along
the way.

This is an excerpt from just one of the lessons in the
Ultimate Success Program.

When you’re ready, I invite you to join the thousands
who have applied these life lessons that I’ve put together
into a step-by-step success program.

There’s one recurring theme through all of the lessons,
and that is to take action on each and every step. If
you don’t do that, nothing will happen for you.

The law of cause and effect is real, you must be the
cause (the action) to get the desired effect (your
dreams and goals).

May I help you too?

As always, my best to you —

Mark Hendricks
