So, What’s In Your Way?

 

So what attitudes, thoughts or fears can keep you from success? Why does it seem that so often, a litigant or even a lawyer is defeated before he even steps foot into a courtroom? More times than not he has done it to himself.

 

 

There are many obstacles to achieving success. Such as--

 


  • Fear, of Success 
  • Fear of Failure
  • Fear of Adversity
  • Fear of Discomfort
  • Fear of Preparation
  • Fear of the Opinion of Others
  • Fatalistic Fear
  • Fear of Futility
  • Fear of Inadequacy
  • Fear of Attack or Oppression
  • Accusation, Blaming Others
  • Losing Sight of Objective
  • Fear of Hard Work

 

These are the things that steal your confidence and introduce doubts. The marvelous thing about life is that we can choose to succeed or not. We can choose to live healthy or not, choose our career, choose where we live, choose what we drive, choose who we marry and we can choose to be a positive impact in the lives of our children and friends and coworkers and communities – or we can choose to allow time and circumstances to choose for us.

 

You may feel like you are not bright enough or educated, or talented enough. Thomas Edison had only three months of formal education. Sir Winston Churchill graduated from his college dead last in his class. Academy award-winning director Steven Spielberg pulled very average Cs through high school

 

The Austrian psychiatrist Viktor Frankl – who survived interment at several Nazi death camps including Auschwitz and Dachau – saw a lot before he said, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: to choose one’s own way.” You can choose to master success.

 

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they lie in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

   ---  Theodore Roosevelt
