Personally, I only speak on what has helped me. I use to never experience what success felt like. Most of the time I looked for strategies that would help me relieve my anger. I was mad at the world. I blamed everyone but myself for the outcomes of my life.
I can see the difference between how I use to think and now. When we are young, we have not experienced enough life or have throughly thought about the essence of life. When you begin to think that life is a random sequence of unpredictable actions – well, you begin to feel hopeless. When you begin to feel hopeless, you begin to gain, unknowingly a failure-mentality. When you begin to acquire a failure-mentality, you can never and will never find success.
If you begin to think you can never acquire success, you will begin to experience anger.
Why? Because you will start to feel that everything is outside of your control – that means that your parents, teachers, politicians, your dog is responsible for your success. I added ‘your dog’ just to make you get a sense of how stupid the idea is that everyone else is responsible for your success.
It takes a certain kind of person to try to reason through all the clouds of thoughts. A person must begin to realize that they are the center of their own world. No matter where you are at this moment, look around you, you are at the center of it all. If you take a step forward, you are at the center of it all. You are responsible for your success.
I, however, understand how difficult it is to try to figure all this out without any outside inspiration. Without any guidance or direction, so I have put together what has helped me out the most.
