Believing that you can
By Mazala Zulu
I have often heard people talking about how difficult it is to achieve a simple goal or task. This could be from getting to work early, to switching off the phone when they go to bed. We need to learn to start believing in our judgments.
Believing is the one thing that separates failure from success.
And those who believe always succeed. Those who don’t believe always fail. The equation is really that simple.
If you want to get to work in time or you want quality time with your partner, or maybe you just want to simply enjoy life. You have to believe that you can and will get what you want. The biggest challenge when you don’t believe you can is that you simply give up.
Giving up is an automatic failure.
Over the years you’ve formed beliefs that say you can’t do certain things or that you can’t achieve your goals. These are the beliefs that need to change, and you can change them by taking control of your thoughts and creating new beliefs.
Beliefs that don’t allow you to succeed or don’t help you achieve your goals should be removed and replaced
What you believe is what you get. If you believe that life is difficult then you’ll always have difficulty and hardships in life. If you believe there are no good ways to make more money then you’ll never find a great way to make money. This will also result in you making poor money choices.
Your life is a mirror of your beliefs. So if you’re having difficulty in a particular area of your life, take a look at your beliefs in that area. You’ll discover a number of beliefs that are holding you back and preventing you from succeeding. This is the first step to your road to recovery. These beliefs need to be changed. The sooner you take control the better.
The longer the beliefs stay in place the stronger they get and the harder they become to change or remove. Keep in mind that you are the only one person over the year that has developed your beliefs which have shaped your life. These beliefs were formed based on your experiences and how you saw things.
Taking responsibility “The ability to respond” is really up to you.
These negative beliefs continue to shape your life. Your subconscious keeps creating your life based on your beliefs. You get to decide if you want to keep these beliefs.
Beliefs that don’t allow you to succeed or don’t help you achieve your goals should be removed and replaced.
The challenging obstacle that you will meet along this path is that, you just can’t simply dig into your mind and remove all the beliefs that don’t work for you. Instead, change your thought patterns, and remove and replace the negative beliefs. This is an on-going process.
Life is a journey of learning.
You need to start learning to find out who you are
