How to Make Life Work in Your Favor


Thomas A. Edison failed 10 000 times before he invented the light bulb.

Henry Ford had to overcome many obstacles before he could succeed, for one he had only had up to 6th grade schooling in his life and still he become one of the most successful men of his time.

Napoleon Bonaparte met with temporary setbacks time and time again, but each time he was able to turn it into a benefit earning him more love from his followers.

People often forget the path that successful people have taken, forget all of the temporary setbacks that they have had to overcome.

As you can see, no success is made over night; no success is a straight arrow. Time and time again we fall. The question is, do we have the courage to pick ourselves up again?

You control your destiny

Just like these famous men, you control your destiny.

Every attempt you make to succeed will most likely begin in failure, but if you press on, your trip will end in success.

Each obstacle is a gift in disguise

In sports we say that you learn the most from loosing.
In loosing you learn what it takes to win. After each game the coach will gather the players and analyze what went wrong, what went right and what can be done differently.

If we only did this in life!

Every time we hit a failure; if we asked ourselves;


What can I do better?

What can I do differently?

And what should I not do at all?”

By losing, you learn what went wrong and how to do it right. You learn how to turn challenges into successes.


Use this in your everyday life

Some days go by quickly, easily, everything goes your way.

Other days are tough. You have to fight for every step.

Learn to practice persistence in your everyday life and you will quickly find that your minimum output level quickly improves, making you one of the top people in your industry.

3 steps to improving your persistence

1. Face your Fears
Facing your fears takes a lot of courage, the brother of persistence, and by overcoming your fears you will make yourself a much stronger person.


2. Repeat to yourself “Back to work, Back to work, Back to work”
The sister of persistence is discipline, everyday do your best. Do more than your peers and stick with it. This will train your ability to face hard times and will help you produce much better results.


3. Be objective
In every failure, try to be objective;

“Why did you fail? Is this a bad idea to continue with? “

If it is a bad idea, give up on it, have the courage to start on something new.

If it is a good idea though and the only reason it failed was because of mistakes you made, keep on. Learn, improve and adapt. Use your new found knowledge and make your venture a success.



Just like the most famous men in the world, you can decide to be successful.

Take charge of your life and don’t let anything get you down. Press on, until you reach your goals and before you know it, you will have accomplished the impossible.
