Fighting Your Biggest Enemy!

| October 17, 2011

An enemy or foe is a being that is seen as forcefully adverse or threatening. The term is usually used within the greater context of war, to denote an opposing group as a threat. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enemy). Every human beings aspire to succeed in his lifetime. The good thing is that success means different things for different people. Regardless of our personal definition of success, we all seek to attain a certain level of Financial Independence and we all seek to love and be loved.

Successful people are great achievers. And all achievers, before they become “great” achievers, have to fight and conquer their greatest enemy. Who is that enemy? Is it the devil? Surely not. I personally think human beings in general give too much credits to the forces of darkness, which the devil is master. Your greatest enemy is YOU! Surprised?

Whenever you want to embark on a project that seems impossible or that will be very challenging, there is that voice that you keep hearing in your mind. The voice plant a very strong seed of doubt and that reduces your confidence in your capacity to handle the project successfully! It is normal to hear that voice but it is detrimental to listen to it. Apply the principles of PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) whenever you hear that voice.

That voice of doubt and uncertainty is, in most cased activated by the fear of failure. Mark Twain said: Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear, not absence of fear.  Arm yourself with  courage and focus on your eventual success and its rewards. When you reach the stage where you no longer consider your self-doubt and fears but adopt a strong positive attitude, you would be able to say that you have conquered your biggest enemy.
