We spoke in a previous article about the power of belief, and how to unlock our inner potential with the proper beliefs. What specific beliefs are good to keep, and what ones are best to discard. We must take responsibility, our world is the world we choose to live in, we can choose happiness, or we can choose misery. The good thing we learned is that we can adopt the beliefs that best help us reach our goals. The first step to being a successful man is to find the beliefs that guide us towards the outcomes we desire.
You have to be determined, know your outcome, and take the right steps to get there. If you're not getting the results you want, then you have to change what you're doing until you are successful.
The same applies to beliefs, you have to find the ones that that fulfill your purpose, that support your desired outcomes. If the ones you hold onto now don’t do that, then toss em’! Get some new ones. There are certain beliefs that scientist have pinpointed that have helped others become successful.
A key belief to keep is that everything happens for a reason and a purpose.
A key belief to keep is that everything happens for a reason and a purpose. Think about your beliefs, do you generally expect things to work out good? Do you expect to be successful, or do you think that your efforts could be thwarted.
Do you see the potential in situations, or only dead ends?
Sometimes we have a tendency to focus on the negative and we don’t seek out the good in an event. The way to change that is to first recognize it! Don’t limit yourself! If you believe in limits, then you will be a limited person.The real men in our culture are people who see all of the possibilities.
Another important belief that was singled out is there is no such thing as failure.
Another important belief that was singled out is there is no such thing as failure. There are only results. This is important in that it correlates with the first one. Too many people in our culture have been programmed to fear ‘failure.” Well, successful people don’t believe in it. They choose to adopt a belief that says their is no such thing as failure, only results and outcomes.
People who fear failure are worrying about what might not work in advance. And this keeps them from taking the right actions that would move them towards what they intend to accomplish. real men understand that when they are doing something and not getting the results they want, it is simply feedback. Think back on some of your own personal so-called failures.
What good eventually came out of those? Chances are you learned some of the most valuable lessons in your life. If you want to poison your mind, go ahead and believe in failure. it is one of the greatest limitations for most people, to have a fear of failure. Ask yourself what you would attempt if you knew you could not fail?
The point is that our actions lead to results. Men who achieve success realize that if they are not getting the results they desire, they have to change what it is their doing. The final success might be a long time coming, but the only way to get there is to have the right beliefs.
The beliefs we have spoken of here are just a couple that have been used by all successful people, we hope by sharing them with you, you may also become successful. There is no shortage of success!
