“Fear only exists within the mind and is given power through belief.” ― Steven Redhead, Life Is A Cocktail.
The Power of Belief is the driving force toward success. Hard work, commitment, and resilience no doubt play a very crucial role in your journey towards success. However, everything pales when you don’t believe in yourself.
Do you think that your favorite celebrity that you look up to would be where they are if they didn’t believe in themselves? What do you think carves the path towards success for people who have redefined the meaning of success?
Billionaire Jeff Bezos, who is predominantly one of the richest men in the world, started his journey of Amazon from his garage. What started out as a virtual bookstore is now a trillion-dollar company that sells just about everything. That’s the power of belief.
In this blog, I will share some insights on how success is heavily reliant on one’s power of belief.
The Power of 3 – All You Need to Know
“You are what you believe in. You become that which you believe you can become.” ― Bhagavad Gita.
Let’s say that due to unforeseen circumstances, you have somehow lost your high-paying job. You have no savings, and no financial security to fall back on. You have literally hit rock bottom.
From this situation, you have two routes to choose from.
- Believe in yourself and your capability to overcome the situation and come out stronger on the other side
- Give up and be a default failure
While the latter seems like a much easier choice, that’s what prevents you from achieving the success that you have likely envisioned in your life. If you decide to give up the first time you are hit with a bad omen, it is a sign that your power of belief isn’t strong enough.
Strengthening your power of belief isn’t a one-day process. You can’t expect things to take a complete 360 the next moment. The following three guides should give you an insight as to how you can acquire and strengthen your power of belief:
1. Think Success
Our minds are a tricky system. It allows us to think, process, and make rational (and sometimes irrational) decisions.
However, the best thing about our mind is its flexibility. It’s mouldable, meaning that you can shape your mind and your train of thought to drive success and positive change in your life.
So, when it comes to bigger moments associated with your life, career, or relationships, think about success instead of focusing on failure.
How we think has a big impact on our belief system. So, if you are reinforcing notions of success in your mind, it will desensitize your mind to failure. Instead of giving in to your fear, tell yourself that you are good enough, that you are capable enough.
One of the most common reasons we fail is because we give into the negative and degrading string of thoughts and emotions that make us question our self-worth. Don’t think that you aren’t capable enough to do it. Instead, think of the achievements you have acquired to date.
Think of the positive things in your life that you have achieved. Foster an attitude that you can make things happen. That’s what solidifies your power of belief and propels you towards success. You have to think about success to eventually achieve it.
2. Remind Yourself of Your Self-Worth
We are so wired into thinking that everyone around us is above us that we fail to acknowledge our self-worth.
Even the most successful people in the world started from scratch. They aren’t superhumans. Instead, they are ordinary people who decided to leverage the power of belief to do extraordinary things.
What drives successful people towards their goals is their attitude towards situations and life in general.
Did you know that the famous author, J.K Rowling, who gave us the beauty of the Harry Potter world was rejected 12 times by different publishers before she could print and release Harry Potter?
What do you think would have happened if Rowling decided to give up after the first three rejections? The world would have never known about the beautiful and mystical world of Harry Potter.
That’s the power of belief. And, it starts with believing in your self-worth. The reason why Rowling didn’t give up was because she believed in herself and her work. She knew that her novel was worthy enough to be published and later get the fame that it did.
This goes to show that even the most successful people in life have experienced failure and rejection at some point in their lives.
Sometimes, the only affirmation you need in life is to tell yourself that you are better than how you see yourself. You are worthy, you are capable and you need to have the confidence to make your vision a reality.
3. Think Big to Achieve Big
Success isn’t catered to you on a plate. Even if it is, be assured that success of that kind is temporary and short-lived.
Instead, success is heavily reliant on your zeal and passion for it. It relies on the size of your belief and your hunger for achieving it.
If you want to achieve big in life, you have to expand your horizons and think big. That’s what reaps the desirable results that you have envisioned for yourself.
Someone with constrained, small or limited thinking reflects those limitations on their degree of success too. So, if you want to make it big in terms of the final success, ensure that you train your mind to think big as well.
Never once be ashamed of setting big goals in your life. When you have big goals, it depicts that you are confident and have a strong power of belief to work towards them.
The power of belief is one of the most crucial personality traits that most people don’t cultivate within themselves. We are so wired to be self-critical about every step towards our goals that we forget to do the simplest thing – believing in ourselves and our capabilities.
