Contrary to popular opinion, life does not get better by chance, life gets better by change. And this change always takes place inside; it is the change of thought that creates the better life.” Improvement comes from change, but change requires confidence. For that reason, you need to make confidence in yourself a priority. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt asserted, “The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today.” Don’t let your doubts cause your expector to expire.
BELIEF DETERMINES EXPECTATION
If you want your talent to be lifted to its highest level, then you don’t begin by focusing on your talent. You begin by harnessing the power of your mind. Your beliefs control everything you do. Accomplishment is more than a matter of working harder or smarter. It’s also a matter of believing positively. Someone called it the “sure enough” syndrome. If you expect to fail, sure enough, you will. If you expect to succeed, sure enough, you will. You will become on the outside what you believe on the inside.
Personal breakthroughs begin with a change in your beliefs. Why? Because your beliefs determine your expectations, and your expectations determine your actions. A belief is a habit of mind in which confidence becomes a conviction that we embrace. In the long run, a belief is more than an idea that a person possesses. It is an idea that possesses a person. You need to expect to succeed. Does that mean you always will? No. You will fail. You will make mistakes. But if you expect to win, you maximize your talent, and you keep trying.
The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him
2 CORINTHIANS 4:16-18
So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal
It is not what goes into the mouth that defiles a person, but what comes out of the mouth; this defiles a person.
“Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact.” William James
“Winners make a habit of manufacturing their own positive expectations in advance of the event.” Brian Tracy
The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking. –Albert Einstein
Daily Storytelling Time
(The) Secret of Life
Inspiration, Values, Vision
An eight year old boy approached an old man in front of a wishing well, looked up into his eyes, and asked – “I understand you’re a very wise man. I’d like to know the secret of life.” The old man looked down at the youngster and replied –
“I’ve thought a lot in my lifetime, and the secret can be summed up in four words:
The first is think. Think about the values you wish to live your life by.
The second is believe. Believe in yourself based on the thinking you’ve done about the values you’re going to live your life by.
The third is dream. Dream about the things that can be, based on your belief in yourself and the values you’re going to live by.
The last is dare. Dare to make your dreams become reality, based on your belief in yourself and your values.
“ And with that, Walter E. Disney said to the little boy,
“Think, Believe, Dream and Dare.”
