“Knowledge is only potential power. When we take Inspired and Massive Action we transform conceptual knowledge into practical wisdom.”
Nothing can stop you believing in anything that you can imagine. It can become the Reality that you believe in and work with.
Pessimism is for Pessimists
Except a pessimistic attitude and the behaviour that stems from that behaviour. What you think about most will determine how you act in your everyday life. We all know how it feels to get up in the morning, those thoughts about yesterday’s goal-setting appear in the mind, then the first important little task appears on the horizon and we think, “I’ll just deal with that and then I’ll sit down and do my work”. One thing leads to another. And those things have nothing to do with your true intentions.
Work with Your Beliefs and Win
When you work with your beliefs and live them in action you will discover that those little tasks that stop you from focusing on your work drift away. Their apparent importance is vague and unjustifiable in comparison to the magnitude of the present thought. The present thought being your goal. You know that it’s important but that Knowledge will only become powerful when you put it into action.
Self-Belief and You
Self-belief, taking yourself seriously and respecting yourself and your goals are key to having the empowerment to achieving today’s work. We only need to think of today’s work – tomorrow isn’t here and the furtherance of tomorrow’s work can only be relevant to what happens today. You can’t work on, plan or think clearly about the details of tomorrow until you know where you are today.
Goals and You – they are your Goals
The goals that you set yesterday are today’s work that will lead you somewhere. If you plan well, the work will become a step farther towards your goal – you’ll know it at the end of the day. The rest of the day is Belief.
Faith in the Future Outcome
Faith, you know your goal is good so you work in the faith that You are intelligent and your map of the way is the right way to your goal.
The reality of believing in yourself is the ability to trust your thoughts, your plans and exercise action with faith. You will never know if something is truly possible until you have accomplished it.
When you look at your goals and ask questions about its viability, you open yourself to doubts. Given half a chance your mind will take the doubt and make it your best bet. Why?
Because then, you have nothing to lose.
Life seems so much easier and less complex when you take the safe bet; nothing to lose, nothing to do, no risks to take and of course, nothing to gain.
Embrace the Race, Let the Friction Begin
When you set a goal and start working towards it you immediately create friction in your life, in your mind and therefore every time you begin to act you will experience that friction in the form of obstacles and problems.
Myths and Original Ideas
You are following a path that you have created, it is a new way in life and the obstacles are new to you. They are not new to other people. Others have trodden this path before, it would be unlikely that you have a goal that is totally unique in that nobody has ever thought of it, gone for it or achieved it. The concept of original ideas is overrated and a bit of a myth.
Go to the Moon if You like
Going to the moon was once a myth, a dream in the minds of fiction writers. It was also a wonder for people in general to muse about as escapism in daily life. Everybody could think of it and talk about it. Some people said it’s impossible and others said it might be possible, if we have the right knowledge and the right tools we can find out. But nobody could say up front if all the work, the years of study, the let-downs and the set-backs would eventually lead to putting human beings on the moon. But they did it. They stayed the course and never gave up.
Persistence and unfailing faith in calculations and man-hours of reiteration reached the goal of finally having a rocket powerful enough to reach the moon and land. Today it’s the norm to send people up into space and do experiments in space stations.
It’s Your Goal, just do it!
Your goal can be like going to the moon in its own way; your goal is your dream, you’ve dreamed it and you’ve done your calculations of how long it’ll take, how much effort is needed and you’ve worked out that you can find the time to be persistent in your activities.
You know that knowledge about your task and work is important to success, so you’ve done your best to understand the course of actions and the mental knowledge that you require to carry out the tasks on a daily basis. If this is you, then you have every reason to believe that you will succeed. Doubts don’t fit into your calculations.
Be on the Right Path
When we strive for the best in our lives, we have to believe in ourselves. Without that being the first task to work on we are walking on a shoddy and rocky path that could lead anywhere.
Belief is like a motor with all of its components. Persistence can only exist in the mind of a believer, determination to see it through and to keep a clear vision of the goal can only exist in your mind when you believe in yourself and your goal.
Do Some Gardening
Remember how those little daily tasks seemed so important – more important that your goal – but when you finally got down to the real business of working on your goal, the little tasks faded away and became pointless time wasters. That’s how the mind works, it’s like a garden that needs tending everyday. It needs water and the earth needs to be turned. Plants and flowers need nutrients from the earth to survive and thrive. Your mind needs the same. Your goals need to be tended to everyday and they need nutrients that come from the activities that are directly related to achieving the goal.
It’s always amazing when we look at a packet of seeds. Hold a plant or flower seed in your hand and try to figure out which flower it is. You can’t because it’s a seed not a flower. But plant it and tend to it – do the right things and don’t let it become unimportant and know that you must stay focused on its growth. It’ll grow and reveal itself.
You tend to the potted seed. You see earth and you water the earth. You see, nothing. Then, one day you see something green sprouting through the earth. Reel back a few days and think about your thoughts when there was nothing but earth and you watering the earth. You were full of hope – and doubt, sometimes. But you persisted in spite of the doubt and the flower began to sprout and it was when you saw the green sprout of a flower that your hope turned to knowledge. You knew that the flower would appear and because of your actions it would survive.
Don’t Doubt – Believe!
You also knew that your doubts were unfounded. Many people have grown flowers in pots. It’s basic knowledge about how to tend them, how much water and if they need a lot of light or a little light.
Know what your goals need in order to be tended properly and you will get through the doubts and soon see the first green sprout that is proof that you are right and your idea is growing.
Many people have done what you are striving for. They strived too, they doubted and nearly gave up. You see them today as successful people and wish to be in their position. Don’t forget that you see them because they led the way for you and showed you that if you work at your goal and believe in yourself, you will meet them at the top and enjoy enormous benefits of not having given up.
