SUCCESS PRINCIPLES #5 - BELIEVE IN YOURSELF



Bismillah...

May your life is always under rahmatillah...amiin.
In the last episode of the Success Principles, I did explain about the importance of believing everything is possible. Those who haven't read the article you can Click here >>> Success Principle #4.

You weren't an accident. You weren't mass produced. You aren't an assembly-line product. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on the earth by the Master Craftsman.


If you are going to be successful in creating the life of your dreams, you have to believe that you are capable of making it happen. You have to believe you have the right stuff, that you are able to pull it off. You have to believe in yourself. Whether you call it self-esteem, self-confidence, or self-assurance, it is a deep-seated belief that you have what it takes - the abilities, inner resources, talents, and skills to create your desired results.

Believe In Yourself Is An Attitude

Believing in yourself is a choice. It is an attitude you develop over time. The latest brain research now indicates that with enough positive self-talk and positive visualization combined with the proper training, coaching, and practice, anyone can learn to do almost anything.

If you assume in favor of yourself and act as if it is possible, then you will do the things that are necessary to bring about the result. If you believe it is impossible, you will not do what is necessary, and you will not produce the result. It becoes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

You Have To Give Up "I Can't"

The phrase I can't is the mst powerful force of negation
in the human psyche


If you are going to be successful, you need to give up the phrase "I can't" and all of its cousins, such as "I wish I were able to." The words I can't actually disempower you. They actually make you weaker when you say them. 

Your brain is designed to solve any problem and reach any goal that you give it. The words you you think and say actually affect your body. We see that in toddlers. When you were a toddler, there was no stopping you. You thought you could climb up on anything. No barrier was too big for you to attempt to overcome. But little by little, your sense of invincibility is conditioned out of you by the emotional and physical abuse that you receive from your family, friends, and teachers, until you no longer believe you can.




Don't Assume You Need A College Degree

Here's another statistic showing that belief in yourself is more important than knowledge, training, or schooling.

  • 20% of America's millionaires never set foot in college
  • 21 of the 222 Americans listed as billionaires in 2003 never got their diplomas, 2 never even finished high school!
  • Lary Ellison, CEO of Oracle, dropped out of the University of Illinois
  • Bill Gates dropped out of Harvard and later founded Microsoft. Today he is considered one of the richest man in the world, with a net worth of over $46 billion

So although education and a commitment to lifelong learning are essential to success, a formal degree isn't a requirement. This is true even in high-tech world of the Internet. You can start from anywhere and create a successful life for yourself.


What Others Think About You Is None Of Your Business

You  have to believe in yourself when no one else does. 
That's what makes you a winner

If having others believing in you and your dream was a requirement for success, most of us woud never accomplish anything. You need to base your decisions about what you want to do on your goals and desires - not the goals, desires, opinions, and judgements of your parents, friends, spouse, children, and coworkers. Quit worrying what other people think about you and follow your heart.

Dr. Daniel Amen's 18/40/60 Rule

When you're 18, you worry about what everybody is thinking of you
When you're 40, you don't give a darn what anybody thinks of you
When you're 60, you realize nobody's been thinking about you at all!

Surprise, surprise!! Most of the time, nobody's thinking about you at all! They are too busy worrying about their own lives, and if they are thinking about you at all, they are wondering what you are thinking about them.

People think about themselves, not you. Think about it - all the time you are wasting worrying about what other people think about your ideas, your goals, your clothes, your hair, and your home could all be better spent on thinking about and doing the things that will achieve your goals.
