When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see a frail creature prone to make mistakes, or do you see a powerful individual ready to take on the world? The way you see yourself determines a large part of the results you get in life. Choose to see yourself as a powerful individual, with unlimited Power to move heaven and earth if necessary. I believe in you. Do you?
People generally take you at face value. If you present yourself as a confident person, most people will assume that you know what you’re doing, and will follow your lead. Countless experiments have been done on this, and the result is always the same. Many successful people started out by practicing in front of a mirror, pretending to be more confident than they felt. The more they mastered the act, the more they actually began
Things are rarely as bad as you think they are. We humans have a tendency to imagine the worst in many situations. And yet, the things we often fear rarely come to pass. In the words of Michel de Montaigne, “My life has been full of terrible misfortunes — most of which never happened.” Mark Twain is often quoted to have said something similar. In my own life, when things were at their worst and
A pattern of success leads to success. Most of us have heard the phrase: The rich get richer while the poor get poorer. There are 2 good reasons for this. First, those who have attained financial success know what works and what doesn’t, and they know that in order to reach higher levels of success, they must focus on what works. Pretty obvious, right? The second good reason why the rich get richer is because
The world around you is a perfect manifestation of what you believe to be true. As you change what you believe to be true, the world around you changes as well. Sometimes the connection isn’t obvious. Here’s why: Most of us have conflicting beliefs, and some beliefs are more powerful than others. Often, these more powerful beliefs require more self-discovery to identify. Also, when your beliefs on an issue are neutral, then the beliefs of
You have unlimited Power within you. Both religion and science support this in their own way. Religion says that the Universe and everything in it was created by a Divine Being with infinite Power. This Divine Being had only itself to use in creation, and therefore everything created (including you) contains a spark of the Divine. Logically, if you take a small portion of an Infinite Being, divide it up billions of times over, each
The past does not determine the future. Every moment of every day is a fresh opportunity to start anew. The past has merely brought you to this moment now. Where you go from here is completely up to you. Choose happiness. Choose success. Choose greatness.
You are the only one in control over your destiny. The world around you is a reflection of your inner self. To change the world around you, you start by changing the essence of who you are. The essence of who you are NOW was formed through years of subtle suggestion from parents, teachers, and even strangers you met along the way. The essence of what you WILL BE is now in your hands.
You have a purpose in life. You fulfill a vital function in the world, a special purpose that you are uniquely suited to accomplish. If that weren’t true, you simply wouldn’t be here. The more you accept this, the more you will see that you have inherited a destiny of greatness, and the plans for your achievement will unfold themselves. Be brave. Be bold. Be you.
You have every right to be happy. Never let anyone pressure you into doing something, or make you feel guilty because you choose not to live according to their rules. If you want to be respected as an individual, you need to stand up for yourself and live life on your own terms. When someone asks you to do something, decide for yourself whether this is something that will help you reach your goals. If
