Effort doesn’t always equals to success
Life. Yesterday I was wandering on youtube when I found myself watching a Luisa Accorsi video with which I related to. She was saying that whenever success people are asked about what is the key formula to succeed, most of them answer it’s all about putting effort and dedication in what you do. Anyways, if it’s true that effort is the main factor in achieving goals, it’s also true that is not just about that. In the equation of success, there are other variables too.
If it’s true that effort is the main factor in achieving goals, it’s also true that is not just about that.
Truth is, beyond effort – and it must be clear that the notion of effort is not the same for everyone – luck and meeting the right people in the right timing are also factors that contribute a lot to make us achieve our goals. Also, one has to be realistic. I could put a lot of effort into being a model that it would never happen because I’m not tall enough. Or I can get vocal lessons to be a singer, but it would never happen because even my cat runs away when I sing. And here it is another important factor of success: the notion of reality. One has to be good doing the thing which wants to succeed in. Otherwise, failure is the most likely outcome.
Still, i believe from the bottom of my heart failures are good to make us learn anything from them. So, we should look at them not as a demotivation factor but as a lesson and a chance to try something new. To do better. Sometimes, there is a hidden door to success behind a big failure, right?
I mean, whatever your goals are, fight for them. Do everything you can including introducing yourself to opportunities. But, if it doesn’t work don’t get depressed. Failure is not synonymous you are not good enough. It just means you are human. And as humans, we don’t always win, do we?
