If You Believe – You Can Achieve!
Years ago, I read the biography of Napoleon Hill, a young writer commissioned by billionaire Andrew Carnegie to answer the question, “Why are some people so successful while others who seemingly work just as hard never achieve a great level of success?”
The answers became the book Think and Grow Rich (you can get a free copy here) and one of the most influential books in history. Many “psychology of success” programs stem from Hill’s work.
Carnegie introduced Hill to the most successful men in the world. Over the course of 20 years, Hill met and interviewed each one and questioned them regarding their philosophy for business and life. Hill looked for common traits in these men, trying to discover what made them different from the average Joe.
While there are many ideas and concepts in the book, there is one you’ve probably heard before, “Whatever the human mind can conceive and believe it can achieve.”
Which brings me to this question:
“Do you believe that you can achieve your dreams and goals or are you stymied by fear and beliefs?”
It is natural to have fear, especially fear of the unknown. But are you letting those fears stop you from moving forward?
Remember, you must believe in your heart that you can attain your goals. You can make your dreams come true. If you have any doubts, negative energy will seep in.
So, stop worrying about how long it is taking, how much money it is costing, the demands, or any other potential obstacle. It is time to focus all your love and energy on the target and nothing else.
You will come across many tests as you climb this mountain. Each step brings you closer to your goal, but there will always be a potential danger. When you experience a setback, think about how it is a brief reminder that there is more work to be done. Expect that you might fall off the mountain completely and have to start your climb all over again. When this happens, you will discover that your true belief is being tested.
When it is time to face your moment of truth, will you quit? Or will you pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start climbing again? How you face this moment, determines the quality of life you lead.
Another way of thinking about it is how do you want to be remembered? Anyone can be ordinary. But being great means taking risks – dare to be great.
As you are trying to reach your goals, you must be in the state of real joy. This emotion is the one feeling connected with financial success. Your focus should not be on money or material possessions. Do the work because it makes you happy. In other words, work from the inside out. It guarantees your success.
Finally, I encourage you to show gratitude for all that you already have. When you express gratitude, you are opening the flow of positive energy through our post powerful emotion.
There is no reason to let fear override your goals and dreams. Be grateful for what you already have and enjoy the flow of positive energy you will release. And remember, each day brings you closer to your dreams.
