5 Exciting Ways Winners Conquer Defeat

5 Ways Winners Conquer Defeat

Do you ever feel like you’re in a race against something that does not want you to see the light of day?

We’ll just call this thing “defeat”, because evidently that’s what will happen if it gets to the finish line first, and you know it because you’ve been there. But it seems to get worse. Every time you go through another challenge, the circumstance is no doubt tougher than the last.

In the beginning, maybe you feared your own greatness; how amazing you can be and that kept you from advancing. But now that you’ve been through the ringer, there’s nothing that sounds sweeter. You welcome the chance to finally be free and to finally taste the victory that awaits you.

“Do the thing you fear, and continue to do so. This is quickest and surest way of all victory over fear”. – Dale Carnegie

It’s there. No matter how dark things get, your freedom is still there. It’s calling to you right now, and it is not an illusion. It’s not some mythical goddess in a distant ocean fog haunting you with something you can’t have. It’s very real, and it needs you now more than ever.

You are the missing puzzle piece to that life, and without you, we will all miss out on what could have been.

You have to conquer defeat! So here are 5 ways to do it:

 

1. Drown out the noise

I’m talking about the garbage you see on the news, TV shows, the commercials, and the tabloids that are currently flooding your mind with useless and debilitating information. It’s doing nothing but harming your efforts and slowing your progress.

If you are sitting down watching TV, maybe nothing else excites you and so you live vicariously through other characters that are living their dreams. Shut off the TV, and go live your dream, not theirs.

 

2. Affirm how great you are

Especially if you’ve been watching the news and have been filled with a ridiculous amount of negativity, you need to bounce back and never stop affirming to yourself how awesome and amazing you really are. Write down all the positive attributes about yourself, including the kind of person you’re stepping to.

The perfect you! Make sure you read this to yourself every day. Perhaps when you wake up or when you go to bed. Just convince yourself of this truth, because it is true. You are every great thing you know you are and want to become.

 

3. Live with a sense of urgency

Again, this year has flown by! Another year is almost gone and then next year will do the same thing. This kind of puts the pressure on me to not miss out on my freedoms, to not miss out on this world, and to not miss out on my dreams.

Your dreams are valuable, and if you don’t live them; if you don’t maximize your chance to live your dreams you’ve wasted a great opportunity. Live each day as though you’re on a timeline to reach your freedoms because you are. Time will not wait for you. Don’t waste another moment.

 

4. Flood your mind with good, positive and uplifting information

This needs to be an intentional act in your life. Obviously you know this, or you wouldn’t be reading this article right now and spending time on websites like this. It will propel you and give you the juice you need to succeed much faster.

It will make you an expert in your field much faster, it will make you feel good, and you will live a much happier life because of all the good stuff you have filled your mind with. You need all that happiness and wisdom. It is fuel to get you to the next level and it’s the kind of fuel that just keeps making you better.

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

5. Surround yourself with winners

People who are driven and like-minded like you, the coaches who want to help you get there, and the people who are already succeeding at a level you want to be at, are all part of that world of winners that you need to keep in your life.

It makes you much better because you start to take on their habits by nature. People pick up each other’s ways. If you hang around thugs, you’ll probably do thuggish things. If you hang around five millionaires, I’ve heard that you’ll probably soon become the sixth.

    Rachel, thank you. Appreciate the kind comments and for sharing the message. Defeat is constantly trying to beat us to the finish line. If we can just be intentional about applying these 5 principles defeat doesn’t stand a chance.

    Powerful article, very moving, and very informative. Defeat is a strong thing that can pull us into being deterrent. If that happens we loses motivation, we loses hope, sometimes even the will to live. That is why it’s important for us to fight and conquer defeat. A person may not be rich or popular but if he knows how to conquer defeat he will be a winner and will definitely be happy in life. Thank you Robert for this article. I will share this to my friends in order to spread inspiration.

The dialogue in your mind is the battleground where your motivation lives and dies every day. In every moment, your words are either lifting you or sabotaging your success. Unfortunately, most people are losing this battle within themselves. They are using their most powerful asset — their mental energy — to beat themselves up, play victimization games, or stop themselves from sharing their passion. (more…)

This Is How An Ordinary Person Can Make Their Country Better.

Published

on

Someone asked on the internet how they can make their country better.
They considered themselves ordinary and felt that they had to be someone special to make a difference in their country, India.

Their question made me feel a bit emotional because I can relate. I too have also dreamt of making my country better.

The most common answer to this question is to get involved in politics.

Many of you reading this find politics really boring including me. I’ve learned through my own experience that politics is not the only way you can make your country better.

Here’s how you can make your country better:


Use your voice

When I was faced with the question “How do I make my country better?” I decided to use my voice.

It was this decision that changed everything. I spent every day using my voice to stand for something. I wanted to inspire the world through entrepreneurship and personal development.

So, I started using my voice by posting on LinkedIn. I used my voice and transcribed it into words to tell the citizens of my country what I think they needed to hear.

Using your voice is incredibly scary at first. As soon as you start sharing your thoughts, many people will say nothing. You’ll get almost no feedback. As your voice starts to get louder over time (probably years) the opposite will happen and you’ll attract trolls and critics.

The hardest part about using your voice is having the courage every day to use it and not being obsessed with the outcome.

By using my voice online through blogging and LinkedIn, I managed to get a 35,000 person bank to start talking about my ideas with staff and customers, and I was voted LinkedIn Australia’s Top Voice that year.

Using the power of your voice is the number one way you can change your country.

It’s in your experiences, ideas and thoughts that you can find what it is that can help your country.

In my country, Australia, we are quite well off, but we still lack a positive mindset. Some of us work jobs we hate and we like things that only money can buy. There’s a competition to get the biggest house or the most expensive car.

It’s not a problem everyone in Australia suffers from, but it’s widespread. I believe by using my own voice to inspire people to seek alternatives, I can change my country.

The results thus far suggest I’m well on the way to changing my country.


Be kind

Changing your country seems like a huge task. It sounds like something only a Nelson Mandela sort of fella can achieve. That’s not true.

A simple understanding of the power of kindness can change your country.

There was this guy I read about online that changed his country by giving out free hugs because he couldn’t run in the local marathon. He embraced his kind nature and ended up impacting millions of people in his country.

Being kind is infectious because we’re wired to do it. When we see one person be kind, we want to do the same.

The problem in my country (and many others) is that we’ve sacrificed kindness for greed.

We’ve let our country’s economy become the most important factor instead of measuring the way we treat people and the ability of a country’s nation to overcome adversity together.

Kindness is so important because every one of our countries will face adversity, and kindness is the solution to that inevitable problem.


Pick up the trash

This one seems even smaller in impact. It’s not.

I found that by picking up the rubbish I saw in places like my apartment lobby, I was able to show myself that I care about my country.

When we care about our country, we choose to make it look beautiful so others can enjoy it. Something simple like picking up the trash can take you a long way towards helping your country.

Every country has an environmental problem and picking up rubbish can help solve it. If we all picked up one piece of trash, then each of our country’s would be a hell of a lot cleaner.


Don’t think you can’t make your country better

A lot of what I’ve learned, by trying to make my own country better, has come from the belief that I can have an impact.

There are so many people who want to do nothing more than complain which wastes time and energy and doesn’t make anyone’s country better.

The way you make your country better is by believing you can and taking one or two small actions to start the process.

The people that change their country believe they can.

50 Cent Scored Half a Billion Dollars – How 50 Made a Killing Off Water

In “The Big Payback: The History of the Business of Hip-Hop,” author Dan Charnas traces how rap grew from its obscure roots in the ghettos of 1970s New York to its culmination as the world’s predominant youth pop culture and a multibillion-dollar industry.

The event that epitomized just how far hip-hop had come was the headline-grabbing partnership between the rapper 50 Cent and the upstart beverage company Glaceau, the maker of VitaminWater. It may well have been the biggest deal in hip-hop history, propelling 50 Cent’s personal net worth toward a half-billion dollars.

In this excerpt, Charnas outlines how it happened. (more…)
