Success Begins With Personal Development And Ends With Goal Attainment
If you wish to experience more success in your life you must remove the biggest success killer that exists! Self-doubt is the biggest mountain that must be removed by faith and diligence. To become successful in life you must first cast out the inner demon of doubt and replace it with unshakable faith in yourself and your abilities.
Through the development of your Self and a personal committment to your ideals and dreams you can become more successful than you ever thought possible.
Unfortunately it seems to be a natural state on planet Earth to steer towards the negative. I am sure that you find yourself thinking negative thoughts throughout your day. Are you are truly aware of just how damaging these thoughts are to your life? Negativity is a state of mind that is cultivated in our society which, when embraced, gradually strips away your self confidence and erodes your self-esteem.
The only real alternative to negative thinking is positive thinking. Keeping an open mind about subjects tends to leave you in a sort of no-man's land where it is all too easy to get sucked back into a negative mindset. Now by positive thinking I do not mean magical thinking where you believe everything will just magically work itself out. Neither am I referring to unrealistic thought processes. I do not mean that you hold on to the unrealistic view that regardless of your actions, or lack of action, you will reach your goal. Your choices and actions are an integral part of any goal-achievement program or plan. I am talking about a positive mental attitude!
You must begin to look for the positive in every situation. The old adage "every cloud has a silver lining" should become your motto. Did you know that some of the most successful people on the planet hold the same belief that "everything happens for a reason"?
Please be aware that wherever you are in life, no matter how good or how bad you think it is, you are exactly where you are supposed to be. Let me illustrate this concept a little better for you.
On the morning of 9/11 a terrible tragedy occurred when, many innocent people needlessly lost their lives. However, there were those who escaped the terror that was experienced by far too many others. Did you know that one woman soiled her work clothes with food and had to remain at home longer than usual to get changed? One woman never made it to work on time because she had slept-in due to her alarm not going off (how many times have we cursed that kind of situation?)! There was one person who could not get a taxi and another's car would not start. Now normally these incidents would make you feel annoyed, irritated or even angry however, how many of those people do you think were annoyed, irritated or angry that day?
If you hold a vision of where you want to be in life and take small steps towards it everyday, then you should know that everyday is bringing you closer to your dream. And, if you are getting closer to your dream then you are exactly where you are meant to be at this moment, doing exactly what you are meant to be doing, with the exact right people you should be doing it with.
If your current situation is in anyway distasteful to you, take heart. Keep in mind that this is just a stage, a stepping-stone, from where you are to where you are going to be. Here are some key tips to follow to eliminate self-doubt and achieve your goals.
1. Stay in the present moment at all times and be grateful for what you already have in your life. Practise gratitude and never moan or complain about where you currently are!
2. Decide what you want to be, do or have and make it a goal. Make it an affirmation of fact! In other words, state your intention as though it were already an established reality. Read this statement to yourself every morning and every night.
3. Visualize your ideal scene. Picture yourself already in possession of your goal. Make it real and see it through your own eyes! Create strong emotion with the picture – this is vitally important!
4. Look for the positive in every situation, circumstance and person. You focus determines your reality! By directing your attention towards the things that are good you will attract more of the good things into your life.
If you follow the advice outlined in this article you will begin to eliminate all your self-doubt and gradually see the life of your dreams unfold before your very eyes.
