Gurbaksh Chahal | Why Most People Fail
Ambition. Discipline. Love. They are three essential components that define success. And, they connect you with a deeper emotion, purpose. Each one of those words gives us a reason to follow through, to create the next revolution, and to make the jump.
The secret to combining all three to create success, is knowing how to jump and taking that first leap of faith. You will fail, you will be afraid at times, and you will get hurt. But, that’s what life was suppose to be about, turning our negative experiences into a cosmic energy that exudes positivity.
Once you’ve taught yourself ambition, discipline, and understand love, that’s when you become fearless. You will thrive, you will succeed, and you will cross boundaries you always lacked confidence in. The word “failure” becomes non-existent in your vocabulary. It becomes irrelevant to anything you do.
Without fear you become too focused on your journey. Nothing will steer you off your path, no obstacle will make you take a different course to get to your end destination.
The journey isn’t just about picking up the trophy at the end, it’s about defining your greater purpose in life. It’s about learning how to overcome obstacles and doing something greater than yourself. It’s where destiny and imagination finally meet.
And once you’ve found your purpose, you’ll never be bored. You’ll never need any hope, or luck. You’ll just need love, positivity, and the universe will help you connect those dots with a clear purpose.
I’m a big believer in philosophy driving success in business. Through philosophy you learn more about character, than in any business class you take as an entrepreneur. Character defines relationships. The good ones and the bad ones you encounter in your journey. The goal is to fade the bad ones out early, so they don’t become the root cause for your failure.
As Socrates once said, “He who is not content with what he has, will never be content with what he would like to have.”
Fear and failure just give you illusions of what you don’t have. However, ambition, discipline, and love give you a greater purpose on what you want to accomplish in life.
And, as another wise man said, “When you want to succeed as bad as you want to breathe, thats when you’ll be successful.”
Jump. Take that leap of faith. Find your destiny.
