Most people never achieve their goals because they often quit just when they're on the verge of reaching their dream. I know some of you will say: I'm persistent, I've been trying for the past 15 years and nothing has changed. I keep trying and nothing works. I simply can't go on anymore. Succeeding isn't about doing the same thing over and over again and hoping for a different result. That's insanity. By staying persistent, by never giving up you continue striving toward your goals - but you have to always try something different in order to get a different result. You always look for a solution. Too often people give up, don't try a different option, refuse to stay open minded or think they know everything when really it's just their mind running convincing them to give up so that it can go back to what it knows best, what it's comfortable with, which is failure. Yes your mind can cause you to give up by giving you a number of excuses that all sound legitimate but really are pretty lame. Those who are persistent and successful don't fall for the mind's little tricks. They don't think they know everything; they're open to all possibilities, willing to learn and try something new - despite what their mind might say and they'll learn new things just about every day. By doing the above you force your mind to go in a different direction and no longer accept its excuses for not succeeding. You no longer allow yourself to give up before even getting started. At the same time you instruct your subconscious mind to help you succeed because you tell it that you are open to new options and ready to succeed at all costs. That you are willing to learn, grow and experience new things even if you may know something you're still willing to explore it from a new view point.
Don't accept that you know everything even if you think you're going through a familiar process - you may discover something new. Be open to any and all possibilities. Push yourself to find and work with new methods to achieve your goals. Don't accept the idea or the belief that you've tried everything. If you had truly tried everything you would have been successful already. The truth is you've only tried everything that you know - and if you haven't succeeded there's either something that you don't know or something that you haven't tried. Be willing to learn something new. Don't believe that you know everything. Don't believe that you have tried everything. Focus on finding new solutions and stay persistent.
