How to stop surviving and start succeeding.
You can watch the videocast of this article on our Clever YouTube Channel HERE.
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 continue 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 backward.
This is because those people who know what they want and know where they are going are racing straight past you while you are left 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.
Jump inTo 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 making headway.
There are two simple facts that you must know if you are going to be successful in life:
1. It is your mind that controls what you do so make sure your mind is fully committed before you begin.
2. Any form of achievement comes about through ACTION so stop procrastinating and start doing.
To make sure you are successful you must start by 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 until you get it right.
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 you believe you have the ability to change things in your life, you are already well on your way to making it happen.
If you don’t think that just the power of your mind can make happen, 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 sugar.
This proves that your mind is a powerful starting point for achieving all you want to in life and it is the first place to start on your road to greater success and happiness.
Do it NOW!
Believe in yourself – successful people think they are successful.
If you don’t believe in yourself, who else will?
Stop circling and have a direction to swim towards.
Take ACTION and start making headway every day with both your thoughts and actions.
