What You Can Believe You Can Achieve!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hope and belief go hand in hand. Once you believe it you can achieve it!
You may have heard something similar to this before, but I cannot affirm to you enough that this is not just another cliche. It is absolutely true.
What’s just as true is that the bigger dreams you believe in and pursue the much bigger accomplishments you are sure to achieve.
Big dreams equal big opportunities equal big successes!
When you have big dreams you have plenty of reason to be hopeful.
Dream Big Don’t Sell Yourself Short.
Here’s one of the secrets of both beliefs and goal setting. If you set small goals, even if you do achieve them you may never make it to see your real dreams accomplished. Now on the other hand if you set big goals, if you dream big when you drive yourself towards them you are very likely to also accomplish your smaller goals along the way. Don’t sell yourself short dream big and chase those dreams!
Believe and Find a Way.
The mind, as we’ve already seen in our chapter about limiting beliefs can be quite a remarkable thing both for good and for bad. One of the most impressive qualities the mind has to help us, is to consciously and subconsciously aid our accomplishing anything we truly BELIEVE we can do.
This is why if you ever watch something like a world champion weight lifter before trying to set a new record you will see his coaches yelling at him to affirm how ”easy” the lift is. If they were yelling “you can’t do it you are weak!” what do you think his chances of success would be? This principle applies to all areas of life and all goals small and large. If you believe, you are much more likely to achieve!
Belief Energizes Intent.
Our intention to achieve our goals and the importance of our understanding of what those goals are can’t be understated, but the belief that we can achieve them is the energy and the fuel that supercharges the whole process.
If you had to pick one of these areas to focus on, 100% belief you can really accomplish your big dreams is a choice that would probably reward you the most.
Positive Self Talk Builds Belief. One of the best ways to build belief is to engage in positive self talk and affirmations. The more you hear something the more likely you are to believe it. As an experiment try saying “I am happy, healthy and bound for success” a few times first thing in the morning and again before bed. Give it a few weeks and watch the results.
And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the Lord his God. – 1 Samuel 30:6
Now you may have noticed our last two posts have been dedicated to different aspects of how our beliefs affect our reality. When we are mustering up our hopes to make a change in our lives, few things are more important than our beliefs.
When we have mastered the art of believing in ourselves and our positive qualities, much of our battle is already won. Our hope is then based on something that can really see it through until the end!
