Can you “believe” your way to success? Not likely, but I’m here to tell you that it is a big part of the equation.
As I continue to work with so many talented entrepreneurs and expand my circle each and every day with more, I can see the pattern that believing in yourself and in your success has on your willingness to do what it takes. How much you are willing to invest and ultimately how successful you will become, seems to be in direct proportion to your beliefs.
A friend of mine recently shared the “belief circle” with me. Here I explain it with lots of good examples on how it works.
In a nutshell, it goes like this.
If you believe something to be true, you will take the actions necessary to re-enforce that belief. The more you act like it’s true, the better you get, and little by little, day by day, you get incrementally closer to the belief becoming real. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.
When she showed me this. I knew instinctively that it was true, I’ve seen it work time after time with my children, with my clients and with myself. Sometimes our beliefs are positive and the affect on our situation is great, like when I told my daughter who was struggling with reading that she was amazing at it and she believed me, practiced more and then got better and better. Other times, our beliefs can take us down. We have to be very careful to avoid limiting beliefs about our business, money and our ability to do what it takes.
If you don’t think you can do it, if you don’t think you can get customers, make the money you need and gain success, I hate to tell you, but you are right. But, on the other hand, if you believe you are successful already, you begin to to the things that successful businesses do. And guess what, you get more successful. That will reinforce the believe and you will do more of what you need to do, you will start to invest in yourself and you biz as successful people do, and you will see more success. The cycle continues on repeat.
Are you sure that your belief pointing you in the right direction? It all starts with your belief and it’s all up to you. I urge you to believe you can, believe you are, believe you will, and watch your business transform through action.
If you are ready to act on your belief that you are a successful biz, take a look at this.
