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!

Napoleon Hill in his book, Think and Grow Rich, talked about how one must believe, and anything that one can conceive and believe, he can achieve. You must have a burning determination to succeed in Internet Marketing to achieve great success!

2. Be Consistent!

To Grow Your Online Business, you have to be consistent in your efforts. You need to regularly update and add to whatever method you use to market online. For example: if you are blogging, you need write a new blog regularly. If you create a blog and don’t add to it but once a month, it will not be affective.
The more you update and add to your method, the more people will find you on the Internet. You will develop a following and become a leader that people look to to find information they are looking for. In the same way search engines will find you better and give you a higher ranking. To be effective and Succeed in Internet Marketing, you need to Be Consistent in your efforts!

3. Never Stop Learning!

None of us know everything there is to know about Internet Marketing or any other Marketing method. We all need to continually update our understanding of Marketing Methods and Marketing Systems. We all need to continually read and listen to motivational material and gain ideas from the experts and gurus in the Marketing Industry. Tap into the blogs and pages of the Top Producers in your Business or Opportunity as well as Top Producers in other Businesses. Learn from those who are getting it right!

4. Use a Successful Marketing System!

You need a Marketing System that helps do much of the work for you. You don’t need, nor should you attempt to build a system from scratch. Not if you’re are just starting out in Internet Marketing. There are several Proven and Successful Marketing Systems available that you can plug into and utilize the expertise of those who have spent years learning what works and what doesn’t work. The Good Marketing Systems also have tons of free Training Material available to their members. Don’t re-invent the wheel. Use an established Successful Marketing System!

5. Give Value!

If your motivation is just about how much money you can make, then Marketing may not be for you. A major key to successful Internet Marketing is to Give useful information and service to others.
The more others see that you provide useful, helpful material, the more they will come back to you when they need other information. When they see what useful material you provide, they will come to trust you. You become an industry leader and they will come back to buy your products because they trust in you.
Some call it Attraction Marketing because you attract people to you, rather than chase them. It’s a major Key to Marketing: the more you Give Value to others and you’ll receive in return.

These are just a few of the Keys to Successful Internet Marketing. Others could be added and as you follow these keys, you’ll learn many others along the way and make your own list.

Follow these keys and you can Succeed in Your Internet Marketing Business.

Here’s to your Success!
