The power of becoming who you are meant to be lies in your hands.
It doesn’t depend on what “they” say about you. It does not depend on what anyone does. It only depends on what you say and do.
It does not matter where you are or how many times you have tried and failed.
It does not matter how many people have disappointed you.
It doesn’t matter who has rejected you.
The only thing that matters is not giving up on yourself. You need to keep believing in your dreams and your ability to turn your dreams into reality. Once you start believing, take the crucial step that needs to be taken for you to get to where you need to be.
Get up and start fighting for your future.
The Most Important Step of the Journey
The only thing that guarantees a win in any situation is taking action. If you refuse to act, you will never become who you were meant to be. If you act and fail, you can turn that into a potent lesson.
If you don’t win the first time, give it another shot, and another shot, and another shot.
That is how you gear up for the bright future that is before you. Your future. Because you have a bright future. It may not seem like it now, but your future is bright. The problems you are facing and the pain you are going through may make it seem impossible but every setback you face is a setup for a comeback.
Every setback prepares you for the life you want.
You can measure how successful you will become by the obstacles you face. The bigger the obstacles, the bigger your success will be.
Ensure a Bright Future by Taking the Necessary Steps
Figuring out the next steps in your game plan will propel you to take action.
If you want to be a famous musician, for example, practicing over and over ensures mastery of your craft. It is a great way of perfecting your skill and ensuring you remain ready for that grand opportunity you are hoping for.
On the other hand, failing to practice or giving up on paying more attention to areas that need extra work will cause you to miss the opportunity when it comes.
Imagine a young woman who wanted to be a proficient pianist. She practiced every day, making sure to never miss a rehearsal. When there were no sessions, she would keep practicing on her own.
She continued for years.
Now imagine that same young woman who wasn’t able to identify a better practice routine and was not able to take effective action. She would skip on rehearsals and wouldn’t practice much on her own.
One day one of her friendly neighbors was opening a new restaurant. They ask her to play.
Think about which young woman is more likely to find success. We can say that the one who practiced and prepared herself would have jumped at the opportunity without hesitating because she was confident for an audience. The other young woman may have not had the confidence or the skill to have even been approached in the first place.
From this branching path, the young woman would have been able to make more opportunities for herself, while the other would still be unable to create momentum. Consider your own life and whether you are taking the right actions to propel yourself towards your goals.
Keep Practicing and Start Positioning Yourself for Success
As you continue preparing yourself for the chance to showcase your skill, start looking for ways of positioning yourself for opportunities – because opportunities will come!
While it is true that opportunities can be found for those who look for them, it is also true that numerous and great opportunities are more abundant for those ready and positioned well for success.
As you continue working hard on becoming the master of your craft, start setting yourself up for success. Some opportunities can only be available to you once you make a visible statement about your capabilities. That means you have to start showing the world what you can do.
Start networking with people that you share similar skills with. Stop hiding your work or your talent and start showcasing what you are capable of. This will expand your opportunities in an explosive way.

Best Ways of Positioning Yourself for Success
1. Start networking with the right people.
Forming relationships with people that can play a part in helping you achieve your goal will help you see opportunities when they come. The right people can not only be a support mechanism, but can help you to take your career to the next level.
Be sure to seek out those who can help you, but also offer something in return. The most valuable people tend to receive the most value in return.
2. Showcase your work, skill, or ability.
Showcasing your work is a smart way of reaching out to the world and showing the world what you are capable of. The more people see your work or skill the more people you can turn into clients.
You can show people your work or talent by performing locally or by uploading your work online. A great way of doing this is by starting a YouTube channel.
3. Develop a healthy mindset for success.
We discuss this topic in other articles, but success often comes down to your mindset as well as your actions. With a positive mental attitude and strong emotional support, you’re able to be positioned in a strong place for when opportunities come your way.
