How can you overcome your self-liming belief?

Your achievement in your life is dependent on the action you take to achieve. Your action is dependent on your goals and how much you believe in your goals. If you believe in your goals you will take action.
I have learnt this goal setting by trial and error. Goal setting, belief level- does it work? My sceptical mind will often pop up this question.
Whenever I would think of doing something big, my own inner self from some corner of my heart and mind will spring up and say, ‘hey buddy, you can’t do this.’ And everything would fade away.
This is a result of self-limiting belief.  
Then in my trial and error of setting and achieving goals, I could learn something which completely changed my thought process. I could be able to shade away my self-limiting belief. I want to share with you what I learnt. I believe this can help you to get rid of your self-limiting belief if you have any.
I am now 43 years old, with a full-time day job. I work hard on myself and in my job. Still, I felt I could do more. I have finished the final draft of my book. but while I was writing the book I had many bouts of self-doubt. This was because I thought that I would never be able to write a good book. Why it happened because I wanted instant success. I am a novice when it comes to writing. But whatever book or article I would read about writing was written by a well accomplished writer. And this is quite obvious if you have not done something, how you could qualify to write or say about that particular subject.     
Instead of getting inspired, I would lose my heart that I would not be able to write. This was because in my mind it was an instant success, then I realized that I could do one thing at a time. I could not write the entire book in a couple of weeks or even a couple of months. There are writers who have done it. Who can do it? But I could understand I have my own pace and even if I write 500 words in a day. in 4 months I would complete writing 60000 words.
Therefore, I made it a point that I will have big dreams and big goals. There is no harm in thinking big. However, I cannot act big. A small act done daily only will produce big results.
The point I want to put forward is-it is your small neglected or procrastinated act, which limits your belief level. It is the ultimate cause of self-limiting belief. You set a big target in all sphere of life but the time to take action is-NOW.
Every morning when you get up early in the morning, you have the opportunity to take action for your dreams and goals. The action taken today may not bring the result you want but over the period of time, it will certainly bring big results-the results which you will be proud of.
Take action bit by bit and you will soon find your belief level is soaring up and up. You can fill up a bucket of belief by putting little action each day.
Keep growing.

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Make monthly resolutions as you make yearly rsolutions

Like many people, I love making new resolutions. Today is the first day of a new month. Isn’t it exciting to make a new resolution for a month? But when I first thought of a monthly resolution my mind rejected it. One month, only one month what could i achieve in one month. I set a goal of losing weight of 10-12 pounds, year after year without ever achieving it. How is it possible to do it in one month? My dream list includes the purchase of a new home, a new car; it includes exotic vacations with my family. My dream list also includes substantial built of a portfolio in paper assets; it also includes completing my first book. It also includes running ultra-marathon. There are career-related dreams. All these long term dreams would take at least many months together if not years, hence it does not count a month. This was my thinking earlier but now, when I set daily goals, a month provides me with an opportunity to 30 times more than my daily time available to work on my dreams. There…
