Man of the Hour

As a Man Thinketh So is HE

Do you want to know, why you got success in some areas of life and failed in others?

Do you understand, what defines your success rate?

Do you know that you can turn failure into success?

If you are thinking your circumstances and people around you define your success rate, then that’s not true. Your circumstances and people have an influence on your success, but they are not the defining factors.

Always remember,


What is going inside you is more powerful than what is happening outside.

This post will help you understand what defines your success rate and how you can turn failure into success. If you understand this well, even you can turn any FAILURE into ABSOLUTE SUCCESS.


Whatever your mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. – Napoleon Hill


Your success and failure are always defined by the thoughts and beliefs you have. Sometimes you carry a conscious thought about a task or dream that defines your success. But more than your conscious thoughts, your sub-conscious thoughts define how successful you will become.

These subconscious thoughts that keep coming into your mind when you think about a task or dream are very powerful. And these thoughts start talking to you continuously. They are Self-talk. These self-talks define your success rate and can turn failure into success.

When you have any particular self-talk again and again, it becomes an affirmation for you.


Your affirmations shape your attitude and your attitude defines your altitude in life.


These self-talks make you a pessimist or an optimist. These affirmations made the inner you and defined how your dreams come true.

But the GOOD NEWS is that you can change these Self-Talks consciously. But to change them you must know what are these Self-Talks that can Turn Failure into Success.

These self-talks are no Secret of Success, but these are essentials of Success. You already know each one of them but using the right one can change the game.

Whether it’s your Job or Relationship, Money or Business, Studies or Health, these self-talks define your success rate in every area of life.





Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever – Lance Armstrong

If you keep saying and feeling “I won’t” for any task or dreams, then you will never succeed. If you have dreams and goals in life but if you keep telling yourself “I won’t be able to achieve it”. Then you will quit even before you start your journey.

If you have a dream, you must pursue it.

“I won’t”  is an absolute NO. You must remove this phrase from your conscious and subconscious mind if you want to turn failure into success.

  1. I CAN’T: 10% SUCCESS

Do one thing every day that scares you – Eleanor Roosevelt

Many a times you are too scared to attempt at something, even before you attempt you say “I can’t”. But fear is just a mindset. If you overcome it, you can achieve it.

Even if you say, “I can’t” you still succeed on rare occasion because you can achieve it, but your negative thinking failed you most of the time. This one if also absolute NO to turn failure into success.


Imagination is more important than knowledge – Albert Einstein

You may skip or give up on many of your goals thinking you don’t know it well. Also, you feel that if you know everything about it then only you can achieve it, this is not true.

Knowing is not everything because everything has been first attempt by a person with faith and not by knowledge. And while doing it they know more about it.

You can’t wait for everything in life to first learn all the knowledge and then try it.

In life, many things need your faith to take up the adventure.


Be the change you wish to see in the world – Mahatma Gandhi

“I wish I could” is a step ahead of “I don’t know how”.

If you say “I wish I could” means you know that you can do it, but somehow you feel that you don’t have a favourable situation to do it.

Most people say, “I wish I have enough time or money or support to achieve it”.

If you have a dreams or goal, you can’t wait saying “I wish I could”. You must go ahead and do it.

There is no perfect time and situation in life; the time is “NOW” and the situation is “All that you have”. Don’t wait for more, be more, do more and create an example for more.

Always remember only you can Turn Failure into Success.


We are what we pretend to be. – Kurt Vonnegut

Don’t just “Want” but “Do” it. Many people keep going around saying “I want to do this, but I have a ….(excuse)”. Deep down they knew they could, but the excuse keeps them back and even if they attempt they failed more that half of the time.

Replace the “want to” with “do” and see all the excuses vanish from your heart, and that’s when you go for success.


A risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing. – Leo Bascagilla

“I think I might” is just a step ahead of “I want to”. When you say “I think I might” it means you know that you can, but still you have many blocks that keeping you back. You may be fearful of having a heartbreak or losing money or wasting time.

You are afraid to take a risk; that’s why even if you know deep down that you can still you failed half of the time. When you attempt it, you failed half of the time because your mind and body are not in alignment to give you an absolute success.

If you think you can then you have absolute faith, and you must do it from your heart, that’s when you can create 100% success.

Stop saying “I think I might” and start doing because you can turn failure into success without any doubt.


Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish. -Steve Job

“I Might” means “I can do it, but I lack some agreement that yes I can do it”. Many people know they might achieve their dreams, but they lack the motivation to go for it. While many others become complacent of what little they have achieved. In spite of knowing they might do it, they don’t attempt with all their energy and that is why they couldn’t ensure their success all the time.

Go for your dreams, have a burning desire, don’t just say “I might” but have an unshakable faith and massive motivation to turn failure into success.

There is no greater joy than living your dreams.


It’s hard to beat a person who never give-up. – Babe Ruth

That’s Great! When you say “I think I can” means definitely you can unless you stop going ahead when the going gets tougher.

There are many goals that you think you can achieve, but you failed because you give up even before you achieve them.

In every great journey, you face challenges and the challenges get bigger the closer you get. In such a condition in spite of knowing that you can, at times you give up and that’s when you lose the opportunity of absolute success.

If you have started a journey, go for it, make it happen because “if you think you can” it means you are destined for it. You need a little more endurance and little more patience to reach the finish line. Yes, you can turn your failure into success.

Don’t give up, keep going.

  1. I CAN: 80% SUCCESS

“I can” is 100 times more important than IQ.- Max Lucado

You can do, have and be anything you want. You can achieve your dreams but “Can” still lack the absolute result in your dreams. It’s one of the best self-talk and it inspires so many people to live their dreams. If you were struggling in some area of life but now you have changed your frequency. You started saying that “Yes, I can”, it means you increasing your success rate to a greater level.

But “I can” still take you down at few times where the obstacles are huge and challenges are massive.  Though it makes your winning edge much bigger but still it has a scope of strengthening.

  1. I AM: 90% SUCCESS

You life is an Occasion, rise to it. – Suzzane Weyn

“I AM THAT I AM” You started becoming the event and dreams rather than the one achieving it. This is super powerful and when you keep saying “I am the Success and I am the one living my dreams”, it make you the dream and success itself. It’s like you are the one achieving you and that’s when the success goes to the farthest it can.

You are no more doubtful or scared or giving excuse for giving any less than who you are. You are the dream and the success now and the work started being effortless for you. But being the dream itself, still left you with little change for failure.

Even if there are little chances of failure, still you must say and feel that “I AM the Success, I am the Happiness and I am the Abundance”.  Once you started feeling and being the success then everything happened easily and effortlessly.


Genius is 1% of inspiration and 99% of perspiration. – Thomas Edison

When you say “I did” it means your mind, body and soul reach a level where even before achieving the success you can feel it.

Whatever you can conceive and believe in your mind, it can achieve it.  

When you say “I did it” or “I did achieve my dreams”, you know that the manifestation already happened in the Universe. Now, it will manifest in the physical Universe

“I did” means you have absolute confidence and faith in you dreams. When you work with your dreams with absolute clarity of what to do, how to do and when to do, that’s when you left with only outcome
