(Extracted from Dr. Edwin Varo Article in Dec 2012)
Most people live lives of quiet desperation because they focus on things that they cannot control: outside events, things that happened in the past and what other people are thinking. As a result, they fail to focus on what they CAN control: their own beliefs, their own attitude, their own emotions, and their own behavior. Of these four things, by far the most important are your beliefs, because what you believe about work and life largely determines how you feel (your attitude and emotions) and what actions you take (your resulting behavior.)

Here are some personal beliefs that not only will propel you completely out of desperation but give you the emotional push to handle just about anything the workplace throws at you:

1. Today's success can breed tomorrow's failure if you let success make you complacent about staying motivated and moving forward.

2. You learn more from failure than from success. Failure renews your humility, sharpens your objectivity and makes you more resilient.

3. Goals that contain the phrase "I'll try..." are self-defeating. If you want goals that truly motivate you, you should use phrases like "I will" and "I must."

4. What holds most people back is fear of failure, but if you don't take action, you’ll fail by default, so what have you got to lose?

5. What you say reinforces what you think, so if something is about to come out of your mouth that doesn't serve your purpose, you should simply keep your mouth shut.

6. You are responsible for your own happiness, so when other people are unkind to you, it reminds you to be kind to yourself.

7. There are five magic words that make even the most difficult work situations easier to handle. Those magic words are: "Do not take it personally."

8. While there are situations where strong emotions are appropriate, most workplace situations are not worth even an ounce of misery.
