Know Deep Down That You Will Succeed
“You’ve got to think high to rise. You’ve got to be sure of yourself before you can ever win a prize. Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man; but sooner or later the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.”
Walter D. Wintle
God has given us the power to be creative. Why not use this gift to it’s greatest potential?Before you can activate this wonderful gift, you must know your position and power in the earth. The power of God is within you, so you have everything you need to succeed in whatever you decide to do. You must know deep down that you will succeed and it is God’s will for you to succeed.
And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
David J. Schwartz, the author of “The Magic of Thinking Big” says, “Belief works this way. Belief, the ‘I’m-positive-I can’ attitude, generates the power, skill and energy needed to do. When you believe ‘I-can-do-it’, the ‘how-to-do-it’ develops.” In other words, you must really believe you can succeed. This is the attitude of our greatest contributors to the world. They are continuous learners who constantly seek the answers they need to move to higher levels of achievement.
When there is something deep down inside of you that says, “I can do this”, then there is no doubt or turning back. Future multimillionaires must be strong, committed believers in their own success.
Honor and Celebrate Your Personal Intelligence
“Believe in yourself, your abilities and your own potential. Never let self-doubt hold you captive. You are worthy of all that you dream of and hope for.”
― Roy Bennett
It really does not matter how much intelligence you have. What really matters is how much of the intelligence you have, you actually use. According to Schwartz, “The thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you may have.” The essential thing is the level of interest and enthusiasm you have. If you are really interested, you will stick to a goal and see it completed. That is the real test of intelligence. What contribution can you bring to completion? One key, is to dwell on the positives or achievements rather than dwelling on the negatives or failures. Dwelling on the positives helps to increase your intelligence in your chosen area.
Think Creatively and Dream Creatively
“If your dream is a big dream, and if you want your life to work on the high level that you say you do, there’s no way around doing the work it takes to get you there.”
― Joyce Chapman
Thinking creatively and dreaming creatively is a wonderful way to live. You are not too concerned about how things are now, because you constantly see an improved way of being. This helps you remain enthusiastic and motivated.
Schwartz describes several ways to do this. First, we must eliminate some things from our vocabulary. Phrases such as, “this is impossible”, “this cannot work”, or “no use trying”, must be eliminated from the things we say. Second, do not be lured in by tradition. It can be paralyzing. Try something new, different or progressive.
Third, always ask yourself, how can I do this better? Is there a new or better approach to doing this? Fourth, ask yourself, Is there more I can do in this discipline? “Capacity is a state of mind.” Schwartz. Do not limit what you can do toward your goal. Fifth, practice active listening. Multimillionaires are great listeners. They listen for unique and creative ideas everywhere they go. Sixth, increase your knowledge. Be open to learning new things.
The rate of change is occurring so fast that you must be open to learning new ways of doing everything. All of this gives all kinds of great things to think about plus great ways to get to your “Future Self”, Benjamin Hardy.
Believe that your dreams will come true because you have all the intelligence you will ever need to achieve your goals. Enjoy the process of dreaming and thinking creatively then do the things required to move forward step by step. You will eventually make your multimillionaire “Future Self”, a reality.
“Great men are those who see that thoughts rule the world.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Father, place a deep conviction in us of our responsibility to become millionaires in Your Kingdom.
Give us a strong love of learning and an urgency to act on what we learn in pursuit of excellence for Your Kingdom.
We thank you Lord, and seal this prayer in the name of Yehusha (Jesus), our Redeemer.
