You may be familiar with Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, considered by many to be the precursor to the psychology of success programs we have today. Andrew Carnegie commissioned Hill to find out why some people are successful and others who work just as hard are not. Carnegie introduced Hill to the most successful men in the world and gave him the opportunity to question them regarding their philosophy for business and life.
Hill looked for the things that made these people different from the average working person. He shares many ideas and concepts in the book but one is at the hub: “Whatever the human mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
So much of your success is based on your belief. Do you truly believe you can make this happen or are you riddled with fears and beliefs that are holding you back? It’s natural to have fear of the unknown, we all do. The question is, are those fears stopping you from moving forward?
You must believe in your heart that you can achieve your goals and make your dreams come true. There can be no doubt or the negative energy will find you. Do not worry about the time frame, the money, the demand or any other potential obstacle. Focus your love and energy on the goal and nothing else.
When you are climbing the mountain there will be many tests. Every step moves you closer but also contains potential danger. Every set back is a temporary reminder that there is still work to be done. Once in a while you may fall off the mountain completely and have to start all over again. This is when your true belief is tested.
We all face a moment of truth in life. The question is how will you handle yours? Will you dust yourself off and try again or quit? The way you handle your moment of truth will determine the quality of life you lead. Think about this, how do you want to be remembered? Being great requires you to take risks. Anyone can be ordinary, dare to be great.
The feeling that is connected with financial success is joy. To reach you goals you must be in a state of true joy as you do your work. Do not work for money or material possessions. Work because it is what makes you happy. This is called working from the inside out and it guarantees your success.
Lastly, I would like you to show gratitude for all that you have. Through gratitude we express one of our most powerful emotions and open the flow of positive energy. Remember, you are moving closer to your dreams!
