At LNE Consulting we believe that the road to success is almost entirely a mental one. Sure, hard work has its physical components; but, the ability to take action starts in the mind. The rare qualities of self-discipline, grit, optimism, and perseverance are those that separate the successful from the unsuccessful.
Let’s take a look at two of LNE Consulting’s favorite quotes that demonstrate this very thing:
“Pressure can bust pipes, but it also can make diamonds.” – Robert Horry
We love this quote because it’s all about perspective. Pressure can be destructive, there’s no doubt. But it can also have truly wonderful consequences. If you ask anyone who’s been successful in business (or in any field, for that matter!), they will tell you that they are thankful for the tough lessons they’ve learned along the way.
For every handful of people who cave to pressure and end up giving up, there’s always that success-minded person who makes the decision to turn a potential negative into a real positive. The strongest, most experienced, most successful people are those who have simply toughed it out.
“If I fail more than you, I win.” – Seth Godin
As confusing as this quote seems at first glance, it’s really quite simple. No one becomes an expert without screwing up. In fact, the fastest way to become successful is to fail as often as possible and learn from your mistakes. Think of the most successful person you know. Do you think that person got there by being flawless and perfect at every moment? We think not! In fact, we know not!
The reason this quote makes sense is because successful people fall hard and then they don’t stop there. They recover from their failure and then they fail again! And again, and again, and again.
Unsuccessful people, however, are often deterred by a single failure. In fact, many people are deterred by the very idea of failure. So, for the people that have the guts to keep on failing, they are eventually going to figure it out, and therefore win.
