most important quality you can ever develop is having belief in
yourself. The belief that you can, without a shadow of a doubt achieve
success in every area of your life. Virtually every person has the
capacity to do wonderful things with his or her life. But the greatest
single obstacle for most people is self-doubt. Many people wish they
could accomplish certain things but lack the belief that they can
actually do it.
When people under achieve in any part of their life,
it is their belief more than anything else that holds them back.
Self-limiting beliefs act as breaks on our ability to achieve our
goals. Many of us have high hopes, dreams and aspirations, but we let
doubts creep in and undermine our talents, abilities and effectiveness.
one of us has feelings of inferiority because we feel that we are not
good enough. We think that we are not as good as other people, and we
feel we are not good enough to acquire and enjoy the things we want in
life. Often we feel that we don't deserve good things. Even if we work
hard and have some achievements in our life, we often feel that we are
not really entitled to our successes.
The Universal Law of Belief
says that whatever we believe, with feeling, becomes our reality. We
don't believe what we see; instead, we see what we believe. Our beliefs
form a screen as to how we see the world, and we never allow any
information that is not consistent with our beliefs to pass through it.
Even if we have beliefs that are totally inconsistent with reality, we
won't let them through because our beliefs have become true for us.
most common and also most harmful beliefs are those that are
self-limiting. Beliefs about yourself. For example, believing that you
can't achieve something because you don't have enough money or
education. You might believe you can't achieve something because you
are the wrong sex, race, age, or because of the economy. Most of these
beliefs are not true, but they will hold you back nonetheless.
fact is, you deserve every good thing you are capable of acquiring
through the use of your talents. The only real limitation on what you
can be and have is your lack of desire. If you set a goal and want it
badly enough, nothing in the world can stop you from achieving it, as
long as you're willing to persist long and hard enough.
positive beliefs, you have to decide exactly where you want to end up
in the future. The clearer you are about the result you want, the
easier it will be for you to change your actions and behaviors in the
short term. This, in turn, will assure that you achieve what you want
in the long term.
Once you've clearly decided on the type of person
you want to be, you will have already taken a major first step in
developing new beliefs. In order to incorporate your new beliefs into
your every day life, you have to discipline yourself to act, in every
situation, exactly as if you already were that person. When you begin
to act like the successful person you want to become, you will actually
adopt the values, qualities, and characteristics of that type of
person. And they will then become a permanent part of your personality.
you consistently act like the person you want to become every day and
in every situation it will begin a chain reaction. Your attitude will
