Whatever we expect with confidence becomes our own self-fulfilling prophecy

What do you expect out of life? Do you expect a happy, rewarding life? Do you expect to fulfil your goals and dreams? Or do you expect to live a mediocre life or even be a failure.

Whatever we expect with confidence_1200

What do you expect from your online business venture? Do you expect to grow your business to tremendous success? Or do you expect it to drag alone and eventually fail and then you perhaps move on to start something else?

 

Whatever you expect is what you will achieve. Many people have written on the subject of thinking on and believing in whatever you want to achieve in order to achieve it.

Napoleon Hill put it this way;

 

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”

Once you conceive of what you want. Once you decide what you want and set your goals. Then if you really believe in your goals, you CAN achieve them!

When you expect something to happen and have confidence that it will happen, then you set your life on a journey to make it happen. Because you believe it and visualize it in your mind’s eye, your mind and efforts will work towards making it happen.

One the other side of the coin; if you expect things to go bad for you. If you expect to fail at your goals, then you will. You will let your goals slip away from you and stop putting forth the efforts to achieve them.

 

It’s easy to let yourself slip into negative thinking and not focus on your goals. Believe me, I know from experience as much as anyone. It’s easy to read about the issues in the world, the economy, social issues, family issues etc. and let them get you negative about your future. It’s easy to let negative things around you affect your personal life and your attitude about life.

 

A major key to success is to block out the negative thoughts and focus on the positive goals you have. Keep your mind focused on your Dreams! Visualize your Dreams! Make them clear in your mind and visualize achieving them. Doing this becomes a self-fulling prophecy. You achieve what you consistently focus on.

 

This may seem like a trivial issue, but it is one of the greatest keys to success you can learn and put into practice in your pursuit of your dream. So use this key to success. Keep your mind off the negative things around you and focused on the positive goals you have for achieving your Dreams.

The starting point of all achievement is desire

“The starting point of all achievement is desire.” Napoleon Hill

Many success coaches emphasize that a major key to success is to have a great desire to succeed. As Napoleon Hill put it, “the starting point of all achievement is desire.”

Achieving success in whatever area one is working toward requires work. Often a lot of work! It requires time, often much time. Without a strong desire to keep one motivated and focused, a person will soon lose interest and drift back into the old habits that put them where they were before.

 

Napoleon Hill is famous for also saying “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” A person must conceive or the achievement or goal. He then must believe that he can achieve it. In other words he must desire it and have faith that he can achieve it. It takes desire as an integral part of the belief.

 

Many other success coaches tell us that we must have a clear vision or dream that we keep in strong focus. This is all a part of the desire to achieve. We must have a clear vision, a clear dream of what we want to achieve and work it into a strong desire to achieve it. We need to set goals to achieve those dreams. Jim Rohn said that goals are like magnets, pulling you through the hard times to your dream. We need clear, big dreams to have to strong pull needed to keep us going even when we want to give up.

 

Others use the term “reason” for vision or dream. Some say that you need to have a big enough reason to motivate you to achieve success. Having a big enough reason gives you the desire needed to endure the time and work needed to reach your goals. This is all a part of the desire Napoleon Hill is talking about which is the starting point for all achievement.

So if you are serious about succeeding then, work on your desire! Work on your why; your reason. Have a clear, vision or dream to focus on.

Remember, you need a strong desire or dream to pull you along to achieve your success.

 

Here’s to your Success!
