IF You Believe – You Can Achieve!

What the mind of man can Conceive and Believe, it can Achieve- Napoleon Hill


Most of us have heard the above quote or something similar at some time in our lives. But do you believe it? No pun intended.

Think and Grow Rich

Belief is thought by many successful people to be the most important aspect of achieving success in anything we desire to do. Napoleon Hill, who made this concept famous in his book Think and Grow Rich, explained how this was one of the deciding traits of successful people of his time whom he spent 20 years researching and interviewing. He found this to be one of the single most important traits a successful person has to have to achieve the success he/she is working toward.

Brian Tracey worked with Earl Nightingale to produce a great series of tapes called Nightingale-Conant’s Insight. It was a series of cassette tapes in the 1990’s which brought messages on various success and self-improvement topics from leaders in the fields. In one of the tapes on Optimal Living, Brian Tracey talked about the need to have strong belief in order to achieve great success. He said,

The most important quality you’ll ever develop is an unshakable belief in yourself and your ability to be an extraordinary success in life.” ~ Brian Tracey


He went on to discuss how almost everyone has ability to achieve great things in life, but greatest obstacle to achieving that greatness is that people don’t believe that they have the capability to achieve greatness.

We have feelings of inferiority and don’t believe that we are worth much and tend to believe that we don’t deserve success. We feel that success is for someone else, not for us.


The thing that can keep us from having what we want is our lack of desire to have it. If we want something enough, nothing will stop us from having it, if we are willing to work for it long enough.

Just like an athlete must work hard on themselves to achieve great success in sports. They must work consistently on their bodies to build muscles and stamina. So, we must work hard on our minds and inner beliefs to build mental muscle and stamina to achieve our goals. We must work hard and with consistency. We must persist towards our goals, just like a great athlete.

So often, instead of maintaining strong self-confidence and belief that we can achieve what we set ourselves to achieve; instead of maintaining positive beliefs, we tend to have self-limiting beliefs. We tend to hold to feelings of inferiority and negative beliefs that we can’t achieve our goals and be a success.

We tend blame our situation on our background or other limitations put on us outside our control.

The starting point of changing your beliefs is to have the courage to question them. Ask yourself if you have beliefs that are not true and have no basis in reality.

We tend to cling to our excuses and assumptions about our lives, rather than challenging our excuses and assumptions.

Whatever you believe, with feeling, become your reality. If you truly believe it with emotion and feeling, you can achieve it. You don’t believe what you see, instead, you see what you believe. That is, you must believe in something beyond your current reality (what you see now). And eventually you will see (your future reality) what you believe (now).

Belief creates the reality of what you believe. We act in way that is consistent with our deep beliefs. When you really believe you are capable of achieving success, your actions will work in unison with your beliefs and your actions will make your beliefs become reality. What you think, your thoughts, become your reality. What you think in your mind eventually becomes your world. We act on the outside, in way that is consistent with what you believe in the inside.

Your main task in life is to work on building an unshakable belief and self-confidence in yourself to achieve your goals. The rest will take care of itself. It will follow your belief and self-confidence.


People who achieve extraordinary things are just normal people like you and me, but who develop themselves to the point that they are able to overcome any obstacles that get in their way to success in the area they choose to work at.

They never stop until they have achieved their goals.

Here’s to your Success!

What’s Winning the Gold in the 2012 Olympics got to do with Your Business? A lot!

How does winning the Gold in the Olympics relate to you and your online business? It relates in many ways. Winning the Gold Medal in the 2012 Olympics takes years of hard work. Those who compete in the Olympics are the best of the best because they have put forth the effort to be the best.

They have spent hours during their days and weeks and months when they would have rather been taking it easy. When some of their friends were home watching TV or sitting around with other friends drinking beer, they were busy working out. They were out running for miles in the rain. They were swimming lap after lap in the pool.

You have to be willing to put in the time!

These Gold Medal Winners in the Olympics put in the time working out and practicing their sport when they didn’t feel like working out or practicing. They put in the time when they wanted to be doing something else more fun or more relaxing.

You have to be willing to put in the time as well on your business when your friends are wasting their time away watching TV or just goofing off. You have to put in the time writing blogs or working on what ever method of marketing you will use. You have to put in the time when you don’t feel like putting in the time. You have to do the work when you would rather relax!

Visualize Winning!

In order to Win, athletes must visualize themselves Winning! They must constantly keep that vision in their mind as they push themselves on to greater accomplishments. You must do the same.

See Yourself You Are a Winner.

In order to Win, that is Succeed, you must start with Visions of Winning. You must visualize yourself winning. In Business, you need to see yourself succeeding and achieving your dreams. See yourself being financially free and able to give to others from your abundance.

Dream Big and see yourself in possession of those dreams. Be fired up for the goals you’ve set for yourself and keep the vision of those dreams strong in your mind. Visualize yourself being the successful business person. Visualize yourself being the business leader you want to be.

Tell Yourself You Are a Winner.

Next you need to move on from just having winning thoughts and visions to telling yourself you are winning. You must put your winning visions into words to yourself. Tell yourself everyday that you can achieve your dreams. Tell yourself that all the efforts are worth it in the long run. Tell yourself that you efforts will make you a winner and each day will bring you one day closer to your business success.

Each time you tell yourself that you are making progress and that the effort is worth it, you build self confidence and strength to carry on and achieve the gold medal of business success that you are reaching for.

Take the Actions of a Winner!

The dreams of winning and the talking about winning are of little use if you don’t put it all into Actions. You must take action on what you have learned and put forth the effort every day to achieve your goals. Just setting your goals and then telling yourself that you are going to win a gold medal in the Olympics will not even get you to the Olympics, much less win you gold.

You must take action if you are to achieve success, whether its a gold Olympic medal, or financial freedom. You must take action every day to do the things that you know will bring you closer to success. You must put in the time doing the actions that draw traffic to your sites, or build your business reputation. It takes consistent action!

Again, knowing how to achieve success; thinking thoughts of success; speaking words of success; none of these will bring success without ACTION! You must have Consistent, Appropriate Action!

Those who are achieving Gold Medals in the 2012 Olympics have applied these simple strategies to achieve the success they are achieving. You can use these same simple strategies to achieve tremendous business success!

Here’s to your Business Success!
