Are you beaten before you even start?

William Walker Atkinson wrote:

“Many men will not begin an undertaking unless they feel sure they will succeed in it. What a mistake!

This would be right, if we were sure of what we could and could not do. But who knows? there may be an obstruction there now that might not be there next week. There may not be an obstruction there now that will be there next week.

The trouble with most persons is that just as soon as they see their way blocked they lose courage. They forget that usually there is a way around the difficulty. It’s up to you find it.

If you tackle something with little effort, when the conditions call for a big effort, you will of course not win. Tackle everything with a feeling that will utilize all the power within you to make it a success. This is the kind of concentrated effort that succeeds.

Most people are beaten before they start. They think they are going to encounter obstacles, and they look for them instead of for means to overcome them. The result is that they increase their obstacles instead of diminishing them. […] So start out on your journey with the idea that the road is going to be clear for you, and that if it’s not, you will clear the way.

All men that have amounted to anything have cleared their way and they did not have the assistance that you will have today.

The one great keynote of success is to do whatever you have decided on.

Don’t be turned from your path, but resolve that you are going to accomplish what you set out to do.

Don’t be frightened at a few rebuffs, for they cannot stop the man that is determined — the man that knows in his heart that success is only bought by tremendous resolution, by concentrated and whole-hearted effort.”

Focus your mind on what you want to achieve, have the unsurmountable Will to make it happen. Make this your 2019 resolution!
