Failing To Prepare Is Preparing To Fail

Are You Prepared To Fail Or Succeed?

There's a great quote by Benjamin Franklin that says,

“If you fail to plan, then you are planning to fail”.

Now there's a slightly different version that I want to share with you today.

And that is,

“If you fail to prepare, then prepare to fail.”

So, if there is something that you want to change, improve or achieve in your life, what preparation are you making towards making that happen?

What skills do you need to learn and develop?

What habits, routines, and actions do you need to put into place to prepare yourself to make it happen?

As well as this, have an honest conversation with yourself and ask,

Are you prepared to do to make it happen?

You know, making plans, setting goals, is fantastic and important, but there comes a point when you have to implement something, you have to make some changes. You have to make progress towards it.

So, ask yourself, what are you prepared to do?

Are you prepared to do what's necessary to make it happen?

What preparation are you making?

Are you prepared to actually do it?

Your action for today is to reflect on this, look at any changes that you want to make in your life. Look at anything you would like to achieve in your life.

And ask yourself, is there anything you need to learn or develop?

Are there any skills that you need to acquire?

Are there any changes you need to make to your habits and your routines in your life?

If you are not prepared to do what's necessary to make it happen, do you really want to achieve it, do you really want to make the change?

If you do, then you might need some assistance to help remove some mindset blocks, or upgrade your mindset from any limiting beliefs, or out of date conditioning that may be getting in your way.

Or if you’re not prepared to make it happen, then maybe you need to reassess your goal, or the change that you say you want to make.

It’s your life, it’s your decision, so take a couple moments to think about it.

Are you prepared to do what's necessary to make it happen?

Let me know in the comments, get in touch on social media and let me know if you are prepared to achieve you goals and what your next step is going to be towards making that happen.

Prepare to fail or be prepared to achieve, it’s your choice!

Remember what your mind believes you will achieve, so think differently, believe in yourself, take action and you can achieve the life that you want.

Just make sure you are prepared to do what it takes to achieve the life and the goals that you want.

All the best
