Hi, it’s Jack Canfield here with another Success Principles tip for creating the life you want… and this one is…
Believe in Yourself
If you are going to be successful in creating the life of your dreams, you have to believe that you are capable of making it happen. You have to believe that you have the right stuff, and you are able to pull it off.
Whether you call it self-esteem, self-confidence or self-assurance, it is a deep-seated belief that you have what it takes—the abilities, the inner resources, the talents and the skills to create your desired results.
Now, believing in yourself is simply an attitude. Believing in yourself is a choice.
You have to choose to believe that you can do anything you set your mind to — anything at all — because, in fact, you can.
It might help you to know that the latest brain research now indicates, with enough positive self-talk and positive visualization, combined with proper training, coaching, and practice, anyone can learn to do almost anything.
Now, I have interviewed thousands of successful people, and almost every one of them told me, “I was not the most gifted or talented person in my field, but I chose to believe that anything was possible. And because of that I studied, I practiced, and I worked harder than the others, and that’s how I got to where I am.”
If Ruben Gonzales, a 20-year old living in Texas, hot Texas, can take up the luge, which is a winter sport, and become an Olympic athlete…If Bill Gates who was a college drop-out, can become a billionaire…and Stephen J. Cannal a dyslexic student who failed three grades in school can become a bestselling author and television producer…then you, too, can accomplish anything if you will simply believe it is possible.
So, make the decision right now to believe that you create all of your experiences because you do! Let’s start creating the ones you want by believing you can.
Sounds a little strange, but accepting this level of responsibility is uniquely and inevitably empowering. It means you can do, change, and become anything at all.
