Failure is not doing

Its 2012 friends! Will 2012 be the end of the world? I doubt so, then again I could be wrong :P. Its great to start a new year fresh! I don’t have a new years revolution set but I do have goals that I want to achieve in 2012. I was able to achieve some last year and I’m making 2012 my “redemption year”. What about you?

Whatever you’ve decided or plan to achieve, I’m going to say something which may sound cliche…… just do it, better yet do it TODAY. In my honest opinion, there is no perfect time to “start” except NOW.

Now will be always be the right time to do what you’ve always wanted to do whether its losing a couple of pounds, writing that very first blog post, starting a blog, writing a book. Get a friend if you have to! A friend will help to push you.

  • STOP giving yourself excuses for not starting.
  • STOP blaming others
  • STOP reading all those social media books  and blog post and start doing something
  • STOP waiting to get your website design/blog design done so that you can write your blog post. WRITE IT now!

Do remember, that there is no such thing as failure when you’re doing something, what you get are feedbacks. You’ve failed if you’ve not done anything! Thats my definition of failure. You are in control of your own destiny.

I’ve asked my friends to give their definition of failure and here they are:

Here is a video that inspired to me to be a better in 2012.

    I agree, that failure is something than be easily overcome by sheer determination & hard work, there is no substitute to it!

  • AskAaronLee

    @ufitcouk Amen to that!

    Love this mentality, Aaron. I actually wrote a similar post a few weeks ago – “Stop Reading & Start Doing”. I think it’s so easy to spend time reading blogs, books and social media posts. The hard part (or the part many people miss) is taking action. If people took action on even 10% of the things they read, they would be infinitely more successful.

    Oh, any my definition of failure? Failure is apathy. Or, perhaps a better way to put it is failure is the refusal to act.

    Cheers and happy 2012!

    @lauraclick Love your definition of failure Laura. Adding yours to the list soon! I agree that even if people take 10% of action, they’ll be definitely be more successful. I guess its “tough” with all the information out there and books that promises “to be more successful”. People tend to go “i gotta learn that too” and procrastinate to take action. I’ve been in that situation before until I decided to take what I’ve learned and “learn from my mistake by doing”

    Thank you so much for spending the time to comment and sharing your definition of failure Laura. Cheers to 2012!
