The following are 10 tips taken from “20 Powerful Beliefs That Will Push You Toward Success”, written by Gilbert Ross. Only ten are listed here because we really want this to sink in so we’re giving it to you in doses. I recommend that you make affirmations out of the ones you really have a hard time believing but you know to be true or want to be your reality. Also, reviewing this list before you leave the house for the day and/or go to bed at night will make for better, more positive days. The 2nd half will be posted next week but if you just can’t wait for more or want to tackle it all at once, there is a link to the entire article at the bottom.
10 (of 20) Powerful Beliefs That Will Push You Toward Success:
1. I am in charge of my life
The belief that you and only you are responsible of what you make of a given situation. Life does not happen to you but is a result of how you respond to opportunities and challenges.
2. I can make tomorrow better
The belief that you can change your future by your actions today. Some people are stuck in a fatalist (and dis-empowering) mindset where they believe they have little control on their life.
3. There is a lot of opportunity out there
Successful people have their mind set on abundance and opportunity and not scarcity and lack. Trust me this makes a world of a difference. Believe that life, energy, positivity, love, opportunities, success, happiness are abundant…because they are!
4. I don’t need the approval of others to succeed
If you are always looking for others’ approval and consent you will not go very far off and you will certainly not be self-empowered. Successful people follow their heart even when others are skeptical or do not consent.
5. My intentions have effect on my reality
This is not to believe in magic where you can wish things into being…well almost. Most people are blind to this but successful people know, consciously or otherwise, that a focused and strong intention is indeed a powerful thing that will make a lot of things happen and certainly get you to your destination faster.
6. People are catalysts not barriers to success
If approached in the right way and you network with the right people, you will leverage your efforts by a thousand fold. You will get things done faster by getting help from others.
7. Positive thoughts are powerful and empowering
Successful people know very well that choosing to start a day with a positive rather than a negative outlook means having successful day as opposed to a frustrating one. It’s definitely in the attitude.
8. I am not separate from the rest
This is a deep insight which only the truly successful and wise ones keep at heart. Commonly people believe that they are separate and cut off from the rest because they are individuals. True knowledge will tell you that everything is interconnected and success comes from acknowledging that you are not separate but one with the forces of life and the universe.
9. How can I use this situation?
When life throws a bad streak at you or you your plans go down the gutter, ask yourself “How can I use this?”. My life changed as I started doing this. You can always turn a situation around even by just observing, learning and sharpening your attitude.
10. Hard work & perseverance are rewarded
This is a rule of thumb even if perhaps reward doesn’t always come immediately but is paid off in the long run.
