Path to Success - A Belief can change life


In the last post 'Path to Success', we discussed about success. As a small recap, let's see the steps,

1. Belief

2. Setting Goal

3. Targets

4. Time Management

In this post, lets see briefly about Belief

What is a Belief?

A belief is something we feed to our mind. It may be a scientific fact or a religious fact, but until you believe it is true, it is strongly recorded in your mind.

How it will help in getting success?

Believing, that you will succeed, is the first step in getting success. If you don't even believe in yourself, who is gonna believe you?

Let see the relation between the belief and success.

Psychological experts divide our mind into two parts, conscious and subconscious minds. Conscious mind is argumentative. But subconscious mind is passive. Whatever you feed to your conscious mind, it will be accepted by your subconscious mind.

Subconscious mind follows the orders and make the environment according to our belief. In Dr. Joseph Murphy's words  'Subconscious mind is a soil and whatever belief are thought you sow, you reap the same'. 

If you feed the fear of failure, anger and other negative thoughts to it, you will have same in your environment. If it is fed with positive thoughts such as Success, Joy, Health and Harmony, you will receive the same in your environment.

You may ask how a thought in mind change my environment?

Even-though it is not scientifically proven, so many people felt that 'When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it'. But you need to have a strong will and belief. 

when you have a belief, your mind, without your knowledge search the opportunities and open them for you. 

May be the story of Edwin Barnes, a broke young man with a strong will to become Edison's partner can tell us, how our belief, can create and use opportunities presented to us by the Universe.

If you haven't read yet, I strongly recommend you to read 'The power of your subconscious mind' by Dr. Joseph Murphy and 'Think and Grow Rich' by Napoleon Hill to understand how the subconscious mind works.

How to have a strong belief about my Goal?

There are so many techniques to train your mind. Let me explain few of my favorite techniques. 

1. Write down your goal or what you want to achieve in a paper with a timeline and paste it somewhere you see often. If it is the first and last thing you see on your day, it will be good.

The idea behind this method is, your mind will observe the goal every time you see. And the mind will think about the last thing it saw before bed and so you can use this to feed the subconscious mind. 

If it is the first thing you see in the morning, you start the day with your goal in mind and it will help you organize your targets for the day.

2. The second method is Visualization. Every night, before getting into sleep, visualize yourself in a position that you have achieved your goal. 

If you want to buy a car, visualize yourself with the car. This visualization, before sleep will feed your subconscious mind. It is one of the powerful technique.

3. In this method, relax yourself and repeat in your mind that you have all the potential to achieve your goal and you have started to achieve it. At least 3 times a day repeat the same words as much as possible. 

The effectiveness of this method depends on the confidence and the emotion you have, when you say the words.

If you continuously feed your subconscious mind, it will start believing and it will push you towards your goal.

It will make the opportunities and it will prepare you for your goal. Also the universe will start to bend itself for you to achieve your goal.

All you need to do is, spare 30 minutes daily to prepare your subconscious mind. You can feel the difference once it started to believe in your idea.

Again, in the tough road to success, it is just a beginning. But all the achievements starts with the simple steps. All we need is belief in our-self.

I am concluding this post with the famous quote from Henry Ford, 'Whether you think you can or you can't, you are right'.

In the next post, we will see in brief about Goal Setting and why it is important.
