Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have it all? I’ll tell you why. It’s because they believe that they can have it all, and they believe they deserve it.
Ever wondered why you can’t get anything right? Well, here it is folks: it’s because you don’t believe you can.
The great automaker and apparent philosopher Henry Ford said, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”
He was exactly right.
My message to you today is simple. The power you seek to change your life is in your hands. All you have to do is use it.
The really cool part is that it’s so easy–just believe in yourself. Stop doubting yourself, and watch your thoughts. When you notice negative thoughts, just say to yourself, “I’m now canceling this negative thought and replacing it with this more positive affirmation of my true desires.”
In fact, you don’t even need to be that formal about it–but reciting something to that effect in your head is a great way to distract yourself from the negativity you’re dealing with, and then it’s important that you actually follow through and replace the thought with a positive one.
For example, let’s say you are calling a creditor to explain why your payment will be late. Before you call, you might worry and tell yourself that they won’t understand, and that they’ll be rude or nasty to you.
When you make that call, you find that your fears come true. And here’s the interesting part…it came true because you believed it would.
Next time a situation like that presents itself, visualize yourself being clearly understood and empathized with by your creditor. Visualize the situation working out to your best advantage, and really know it. Tell yourself things will work out in your favor, and really believe it.
I’ll bet you have a different outcome this time. Give it a shot. You won’t regret it!
Bottom line: If you can believe it, you can achieve it. It’s a fact.
