Belief in yourself is the most important thing to achieve success. If we believe that we can do something, we may or may not be able to do it but if we believe we can’t do something, then we definitely can’t do it. Everything your mind believes, you will conceive.
Our behaviours come from the beliefs we hold, and beliefs we hold are created from thought, thoughts we repeat to ourselves. They say behaviours are just the thoughts we repeat to ourselves, behaviours are the thoughts of habit. The thoughts we give our attention to, determine our attitudes and behaviours.
If you say you can’t do something, you’re already set on that thing being unattainable – ever. The words create a limiting belief that literally limits our behaviours and prevents us from reaching our goals. You will have limited yourself before you’ve even had the chance to try and that is the problem with the words “I can’t”.
Negative thoughts are not conducive to achievement and success in any way or form. If we keep thinking and telling ourselves “I can’t”, then yes, you can’t, you won’t be able to. It is paramount to tame and make peace with the critic that is the inner voice and replace his/her words with more motivating, positive, supportive and compassionate ones. Replace all the ‘ I can’ts’ with ‘I wills’ and watch your life transform.
Positive thoughts cultivate a mindset that allows us to take the initial steps, to acknowledge our successes along the way, be able to take something away from our mistakes, and keep moving forward to achieve our goals.
When you believe that you can and that you will, the how doesn’t matter. You have taken the first step in allowing yourself to achieve your goals, and the how will come to you later. You won’t be able to know how you are going to achieve something exactly, you may have an idea but once you get there things could be different from what you envisioned. But do not be discouraged because where you are now is not where you will be.
It necessary you have complete faith in yourself. You must believe that you will know what to do when you get there. We already have everything we need to change our lives in us.
Faith is being able to believe before seeing.
Success and achievement all start with belief, belief that is is possible, that it is possible for you – belief in yourself. The belief you can do it is the most important thing, without it you will not be able to achieve it. Belief allows success to grow. As Ford said: “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.”
What is it that you want to achieve? What area in your life do you want to change – love, wealth, health, happiness? Examine your beliefs, identify the ones that are holding you back. Let go of all the negative beliefs that do not serve you well today. Change your mind and you can change your life.
