Eighty percent of success is showing up. ~Woody Allen
Every time I would see this quote my mind would ask, what makes up the other 20% of success? I personally believe it’s facing and overpowering your fears.
But, before we talk more about the 20% let’s take a look at what might be included in the 80%. When you show up, and this can be for anything in your life, along with you comes all your education, your knowledge, your experience, your ability to think and make choices, your skills, and even your unique talents. Everything that makes you the person that you are.
You have practically everything you need to succeed. If you put together a list of all these attributes that you already possess, you’d probably be amazed at all you bring to the table. The only thing that you don’t have inherent in you, is the ability to overpower your own fears and use the 80% to successfully do what you want and need to do.
Think about this for a moment, fear is not real. So by letting the negative delusional thoughts in your mind generate fear, and then allowing that fear to stop you from using the 80% of you that would guarantee your success, doesn’t make much sense. Am I right?
What do you think?
Best to you always,
