Having goals and ambitions is proof of dynamism and good he alth. Only, an essential quality must allow us to stick to our plans whatever they are, it is perseverance.
Have the will?
The will must come from us, without outside action. We are the only ones who know if we will succeed, but we also do not know if we will fail in action. We also don't know if we'll be strong and brave enough to finish what we started.
Wanting is like believing or having faith: you don't need proof. I want, this means that I rely only on myself and I don't care about the arguments or opinions of others who seek to persuade me that I am incapable of it. Do not look for proofs: you have to want, that's all.
Perseverance is the key
Child, when you learn to walk, there are a lot of falls, hurts and tears and yet the young child recovers and sets out again for new adventures. He doesn't give up, he gets up. For us adults, it's the same thing and the slightest obstacle should not stop us, on the contrary. Perseverance should allow us to tell ourselves that the next time will be the right one.
Soak up the stories of others
If you look around you, if you read the biographies of famous and recognized people, you realize that life has not necessarily spoiled them, immediately, in any case. Top athletes, models, actors, or simpler people who manage to achieve their goals have often had bitter failures. Not everything happens right away, snapping your fingers.
Failure is essential
If we go back to the story of learning to walk, if we hadn't fallen, if we hadn't rolled down the stairs, if our running hadn't been stopped by a fall, we wouldn't have perfected our way of walking. Balance, coordination, posture have been acquired by standing up each time.
Learning from our failures
It is the failure which, with a post-experimental analysis of these experiences (sometimes judged early negative), will feed your subconscious to "correct the situation" and better aim for the goal the next time.
In summary, if we really want to get something we care about, an exam, a job, a house, gain or lose weight, be happier, it requires holding on despite all the blows of wind, storms. But it's also true that sometimes we have to take breaksto set off again, because life brings us unforeseen events. Sometimes we have to allow ourselves to rest and then move on.
La Rochefoucault, in the Maxims, said:
“We have more strength than willpower; and it is often to excuse ourselves that we imagine that things are impossible. »
