Starting a New Business or Re-energizing Your Current Business.
I started my first business in 1981 with a friend and it was a dismal failure. I started my second business in 1986 and it took me three years to turn a profit, but I finally figured it out.
Maybe you find yourself confronting some of the same challenges I have faced:
How are you going to prepare for the journey?
Do you find yourself on the edge of succeeding at something and then all of a sudden everything falls apart? It’s called self-sabotage and it kills thousands of dreams everyday.
- Have you struggled with knowing you are as smart as many others who have succeeded, but you’re still getting mediocre results?
- Have you come up with great ideas that you know could change your life but you never seem to get started on them?
- Are you working harder and longer but can’t seem to make the profits you deserve?
- Are you ready to quit because you just can’t breakthrough the barriers in your life?
- Do you have a “settle for” attitude (ie., “it’s not what I want but it’s better than a lot of people have.”)
“The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief.” Read those words again. In fact, read them over and over until they really sink in.
This is a quote from The Magic of Thinking Big, is it possible that this is the missing piece to your success puzzle.
I realized a few years ago that where ever my belief was “set” would determine how successful (or how unsuccessful) I would be.
If I wanted to change my life, I had to change my belief. One of the things I began doing was reading Think and Grow Rich every year. Now I listen to the audio book.
Napoleon Hill, wrote in the classic Think and Grow Rich that belief and desire are the beginning of all achievement. If one of those key ingredients is missing, success is almost impossible. That might explain why a lot of people get excited about an idea (desire) but fail to follow through with it (belief).
It’s rare that we will attempt to do something that we don’t believe in, and we will never give 100% of our effort to something without a strong belief that we can do it. It’s our human defense mechanism. In As A Man Thinketh, James Allen tells us, “The will to do springs from the knowledge that we can do.” In Above Life’s Turmoil he tells us, “Belief always precedes action.”
That certainly helped me understand why I’d find myself with some great ideas that I thought would be successful, and then six months would pass by and I hadn’t done anything about them. I didn’t have the deep down belief they’d be successful, so I simply didn’t take any action on them. And that’s the same experience that most people have that steals the great dreams they have for their lives.
Napoleon Hill wrote a very telling line in Think and Grow Rich: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” That’s pretty clear and straightforward. And you can see that power of belief at work in the lives of all successful people…
