Having thoughts on success in your life can really help you achieve your goals and be successful. In the contrary thoughts on failure, will just prevent you from succeeding and drag you down.
We all have had both successes and failures in our lives, but the future does not equal the past, and having the correct attitude with thoughts on success rather than failure can make a difference in the outcome of the things we want to achieve in life.
How do you acquire this habit of having thoughts on success? You acquire it by succeeding in reaching smaller goals first.
If you are running and can presently run only 500 meters, a reasonable goal would be to reach one kilometer. After a couple of weeks of training, you will get a great feeling when attaining your goal and you will have more thoughts on success.
If your goal is much higher than what you are capable of, you may never reach it and add one more failure to your life. That will only promote thoughts on failure the next time you set a goal.
Thoughts on success should be a regular things for children. Teachers of lower elementary grades should give their students work that not only challenge them, but that are completely doable. This way, the children who complete the assignment successfully will have thoughts on success for their next work or test. This habit will teach them to concentrate on success instead of failure in their adult life.
If you constantly have thoughts on failure in your life, it is unlikely that you will reach your goals in your personal life and career. These negative thoughts are entertained by your mind replaying past failure events over and over again in your head. You are to a point that you may speak like: “Ok, I will try… but it has always been a struggle in all the businesses I was in. I don’t know if I can make it this time!”
In the contrary, a person with thoughts on success, which are positive, may speak like this: “I will make it happen! It’s a piece of cake. There will be bumps on the road, but I will succeed in this business this time” Even if you have had many failures in your life, which attitude do you think can better help you to succeed?
Entertain Your Thoughts on Success
You have to train your mind to think positively and you must celebrate all small achievements. If failure gets in the way, trash it from your mind in saying: “My future does not equal my past!” Each small success is an opportunity for you to seek other successes.

How do you think you can have thoughts on success when all you feed your mind is garbage? I do not talk about watching a good movie or series for an hour to relax yourself after a hard day at work… I am talking of all the news, soap operas, silly programs that you watch for 3 to 4 hours after work.
Go to Youtube instead and watch motivational videos from the best in the field: Bob Proctor, Les Brown, Brian Tracy and others. Watch the life of successful businessmen like Donald Trump and see how they think, how they do, to succeed.
