Understand how clever you are and what you are capable of and you will have the ability to achieve whatever you want. Having confidence in yourself is repeated throughout these pages because it is a very important ingredient in being successful. It will help you to get started and it will give you the self-confidence to cope with any difficulties which may appear on your road to success.
Having confidence in your own ability will help to keep you going rather that give up.
- “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up”. Thomas A. Edison (1847 – 1931)
Take control of your mind
Your mind is truly amazing but for many of us, it is rather like an unruly child that taunts and challenges us to sometimes do things that we know we shouldn’t. Being aware of your minds tendency to take the easy route or occasionally cause a little mischief will help you to control it.
You must take your mind off of all of the reasons (excuses) why you cannot do something and get started NOW. Understand what you are thinking and decide whether it is going to produce the results you want or whether you are being distracted away from making your dreams come true.
If you really want to master something properly and achieve your desired goal then it will take time and dedication. The first place to start is with yourself but there is no quick fix, it takes time and some dedication. The good news is that it gets easier as you practice until it becomes automatic.
Do It NOW!
Recognise when your mind is wandering and bring it back on task;
Stop making excuses and start making positive changes to your learning and your life NOW;
Minimize distractions and practice concentrating each day.
