Can you believe we’re almost through the end of the second month of this new decade? Are you two months closer to your goals for the year? I would like to share some thoughts to help you realize the importance of believing and achieving! Belief in yourself and in the opportunities before you is so important. Without it you may never know how far you might have gone in life.
Many people go through life resenting all the limitations imposed upon them by society, bosses, regular jobs, working conditions, or a lack of education, challenge or advancement opportunities. However, oftentimes when a true opportunity presents itself we are so used to being limited that we perpetuate the source of our own resentment by unconsciously imposing limitations on ourselves.
How do we do that? By not thinking big enough. By not believing that we can make it happen. By operating on fear rather than faith. By refusing to start right now. If we persist in thinking small and settling for crumbs and procrastination when a full banquet table and unlimited opportunities are right before us, we are basically sending the message to ourselves and the Universe that we do not deserve the bigger and better things in life. Not so! Not So!
Most people mistakenly say they have to see it before they believe it. However, they really need to believe it before they will ever get to see it. Which comes first, the belief or the reality? Simple! Which do you have total control over? The reality? No! But you do have total control over your thoughts and your beliefs. Therefore, may I suggest that you exercise your total control? Control your beliefs and you will bring about the realities. As the old saying goes “Believe and achieve ~ or doubt and do without.”
When you finally decide to totally let go of old fears and start operating almost solely on faith (belief), you will achieve your goal. Stick to it! Trust your instincts! Know that obstacles are temporary, and they only make you stronger by supplying opportunities for you to learn not only new skills and techniques but also more about yourself and how you react to things, how flexible you really can be. Assets, such as talent, education, and intelligence are great. But if you were to put those assets together and leave out belief you would achieve nothing
The answer to that facetious question that was popular for awhile “Well, aren’t you special?” A resounding, YES! You are special! You deserve the best things in life. Picture yourself a success. Seeing is believing ~ visualize and realize. Reach for your outer limits! Break through your barriers! Start expecting miracles! Believe with all your heart that you will make it happen. Work as if your success is guaranteed. Believe in yourself and make it all happen for you. Reach out, take action ~ you just may be surprised at the successes you create!
STEP OUT INTO YOUR GREATNESS!
