Do you feel down when you get out of bed? Have you lost your passion and drive for succeeding and realizing your dreams? Have you experienced unexpected setbacks? Are your motivation levels low? Have you lost that zeal that you once had as you went after your goals with passion and enthusiasm?

If you are feeling low or frustrated because your goals are not being realized as quickly as you planned, I’ve got some encouraging news for you. Here is a quote from a Hall of Fame member and the greatest basketball player that I have ever seen.

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Michael Jordan

Failure is temporary. It is not permanent unless you quit. So don’t let a few missteps get you down. The results that you want will come with determination, specialized knowledge, and persistence. You must apply all of these skills and attributes to what you are doing.

But you must do one other thing. Stay inspired. You must find a way to keep your dream in front of you. We have all experienced low points in our lives where we felt like giving up.

“When you lose sight of your vision you lose the power behind your motivation.”
Anthony D. Carter

It is the person who keeps their mind centered on his desired results who will eventually succeed. Your dream is your inspiration. It is the thing that drives you. If you forget your reason then will you lose your motivation. So, despite the obstacles, set backs and disappointments you can still maintain your excitement by focusing on where you are going rather than where you are.

Use failure as feedback and let it guide you in making the necessary corrections as you proceed towards the accomplishment of your goals. This way you will eventually succeed and achieve the success that you desire.

Remember success is defined as the progressive realization of a worthy goal or desire. Focus on what you want. Let it inspire you to do whatever needs to be done. Keep that dream on your mind and pursue it with all of your heart.
