How to stop surviving and start succeeding.
Following on from our two articles, breaking-the-multi-tasking-myth-and-being-super-efficient and How to stop going in circles and get the success you deserve, we thought we should follow on with a short Clever bite about having the belief, commitment, and effort required to get to your destination.
If you are trying to “survive” in life or just “keep your head above water” you may think that you are putting all your efforts into staying where you are but in reality, you are going backwards. This is because those people who know what they want and know where they are going are racing straight past you while you are paddling in circles in the shallow end of life. See How to stop going in circles and get the success you deserve for some instant Cleverness on that subject.
To be successful you can’t just ‘survive’. You have to jump in and start swimming. You need to know where you are going and start to make headway and you also need to know that this that takes time, effort and commitment.
There are two simple facts that you must know if you are going to be successful in life:
Any form of achievement comes about through ACTION. Some people refer to others being lucky but you will find that the more you work and something the luckier you get!
To make sure you are successful you must start with training your mind as this controls everything you do. If your mind is fully committed then you are most of the way towards achieving your goal. The rest is simply practicing. Even if you don’t make it the first time, you will have learned something and you won't make the same mistakes again so don't ever let the fear of failure stop you.
If your mind is fully committed and you put in the right amount of effort you will get there in the end.
Success starts in the mind.
- Believing in something has the power to alter your world;
- The power of a positive attitude is much greater than you think;
- If you strongly believe in something you have the ability to change things in your life to make it happen.
If you don't believe in the power of your mind to make changes to your behavior, then think about the placebo effect - if you believe you are taking a powerful drug that will make you feel better then it will, even if it is just a sugar pill.
This proves that you have the ability to change your life by the power of your mind alone.
Do it NOW!
Believe in yourself - you are already successful. Successful people think they’re successful. If you don’t believe in yourself, who else will?
