Every single time I have failed in life, it is only because of one of the following three reasons:
- I did not respect the process.
- I did not respect the results.
- I did not respect myself.
Let me elaborate on each of the points further for better understanding.
I did not respect the process
Achievement takes work. It’s a process. Often times the shortcuts are going through the entire process in the right manner. In my experience, when I try to cut corners in the process, the process doesn’t seem to work and I don’t get my intended results.
I did not respect the results
Other times I fail because, I don’t believe the results are worth the time and effort. And as soon as I make that decision, I give up on the process automatically thus never bring the goal to fruition.
I don’t respect myself
This is a self-image issue. Thankfully, this has not been the reason majority of the times I have failed. In other words, I don’t think I am deserving enough to achieve the results and thus sabotage my own efforts (almost always unknowingly).
