“Is there something that separates the successful from the not successful that can be defined? You bet there is! Is there something the successful do that non-successful don’t do? Again, yes! Are there things the successful don’t engage in that others do? Absolutely!
The practices of the successful and the wealthy differ greatly from the practices of those who are not successful. Often, times people make lists of different activities for each to compare. What is first and foremost important is the differences in mindset!
The right mindset is critical. The wealthy and successful are not perfect. In some cases, far from it. What the wealthy and successful share in common is an unwavering faith that they will make happen what they want. They don’t doubt themselves. They believe!
Success Occurs When Your Dreams Get Bigger Than Your Excuses
They know they will prevail. They know where there is a will there is a way. They decide on what they want and they go for it full steam ahead. The gather their personal resources and those who can help them make it happen and they go after it optimistically.
They expect good to happen. They expect things to work out. They expect the best. They know it will happen. Whereas, other people worry things will sour and turn out badly the successful people know they can handle any obstacles. They keep the faith and forge ahead.
One cannot think ‘yes but, it is difficult’ or ‘yes, but, I don’t have the money’ or ‘what if it doesn’t work out’ or ‘what if I lose my screw up?’ ‘Yes, but’ and ‘what if’ are problem thinking. Typically, that thinking focuses on on the negative or what won’t work. Stop it!
The Price You Pay To Be Great At Something Is Repetition
To stay thinking on ‘what if’ keeps one focused on excuses and blames. The successful do not worry much about what ‘can’t be’ done because they are too busy making what ‘can be’ happen. The difference IS mindset. One is positive and powerful the other isn’t.
The successful maintain unshakeable faith in oneself and one’s abilities. To succeed that is required! We call these people successful because that is what they do. We call people who win lotteries or are born into something, lucky. Those who are successful are people who make it happen. They do it with what they have. They go for it!
Successful people focus on what they don’t want only long enough to clarify what they do want. They entertain what they ‘can do’ and don’t give time to what they ‘can’t do’ because they know we get what we focus on. They know if it is going to happen it will happen because of them. They know they have to do it to have it.
Change I Can’t Into I Can And Soon You’ll Say I Did
Many rich people may not be nice. There are plenty who are be greedy, ruthless and will do almost anything to beat others to the profits. Obviously,I don’t suggest you emulate any of those traits. What one should emulate is the conviction ‘I will succeed!’
‘I can do it.’ ‘I will do it’. Then act. Move! Do something each day towards that end. Be proactive. Expect the best. When challenges arise handle them. Have no fear. Be relentless. Be happy and optimistic. Adopt the Nike motto and ‘just do it’.
Another aspect of the wealthy mindset we will explore soon is that they never concern themselves with how, only why. Once you learn this important principle you can begin getting better results. It is a distinction that makes a huge difference in the results you get.
A Positive Attitude Changes Everything
Right now, dedicate yourself to becoming a ‘can do’ person. Develop the faith that you can learn to do anything you put your mind to and stick with. Napoleon Hill’s famous quote is ‘What you can conceive and believe, you can achieve.’ Your belief in you, is crucial.
I’ll leave you with a few quotes. ‘Any idea, or plan may be placed in the mind by repetition of thought.’ Napoleon Hill. This is how we come to think and believe everything. Repetition of exposure and repetition or action. Because this method worked we can use it!
‘Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition will one day become a reality.’ Earl Nightingale. We can change ourselves and the results we get this way, or we will keep on getting what we have been getting because of this.
Repetition Is The Mother Of Skill And The Key To Success
Either way the formula is powerful. ‘It is repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.’ Claude M. Bristol We can affirm positive things OR we can affirm negative things and get those results.
Whatever we continuously affirm by repetition we get. Whatever we speak most about we end up with. Do you think I can or I can’t? Do you talk most about what you will make happen or about what happens to you? Are you focused on solutions or on problems?
Whichever is predominant in your mind is what you will get. The wealthy and successful focus on that which is supportive and gets them what they want. They believe in themselves and don’t worry about problems because they are too busy making it happen.
Your Attitude Not Your Aptitude Determines Your Altitude
So can you. Believe it. If you don’t already you can develop that strong belief. This is what you can AND must do. Begin today conditioning your mind for the positive and for success. Enjoy everything along the way. Make it happen. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
