If you picture yourself as someone who is ultimately going to succeed, then success is going to come a lot easier.
If, on the other hand, you picture yourself as someone who is either highly likely to fail or at least not make progress, then no matter how talented you are or how hard you work, it’s going to be very difficult to succeed.
Your achievements can launch your profession or business ahead and make you more successful in a wide range of various circumstances—from managing individuals, to focusing on scientific issues, to creating innovative thoughts. Thinking failure can stop you cold, like the icy moat or cold stone walls of a medieval castle, and make you less effective in dealing with people, less able to focus on your work, and less likely to develop creative ideas.
So how can you think success? Here are a few quick suggestions equally applicable whether you’re running your own business or trying to build a career.
The Success Formula
