You cannot continue your goal achievement activity without this

Your Belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe-Mark Victor Hansen

Why do most people despite knowing the fact that certain activities will definitely give the result fail to take action?
The answer is simple, ‘they do not believe in themselves.’
We are, today, living in a world bombarded with negativity. Switch on the television, read a newspaper, what kind of news they are spreading. We can easily make out. Go to your social circle, everywhere this negativity is widespread which is far from reality. In such a scenario it is not easy to keep your belief system positive on a sustainable basis.
How a negative self-belief can destroy the potential can very well be learnt through this small story of an elephant.
When an elephant is a baby elephant, he is tied with an iron chain. The baby elephant tries day and night, day after day and week after week to break open the chain. But he does not succeed. Why? The iron chain is too strong for the baby elephant to break. Gradually, he starts believing that it is not possible for him to break the iron chain. Time passes by, now, the baby elephant is huge, powerful, giant elephant.
          Now, he is tied up with Jute rope that he can easily break and can get his freedom easily, in a single stroke. But he does not do it. He has been conditioned since his young age that the chain is too strong for him to break. This belief system is so deep in his mind, that he thinks it is the reality.  While the reality is not at all, what he believes.
          We human being is not different from that elephant. We are conditioned and made to believe and think that we can do certain work, despite the fact that all the power is within us.
          Since our childhood days we are bombarded with so much negative that our belief system developed into CAN’T DO attitude.
But it is in our hand to reverse this belief system; we as a human being have the power to control what we think. And chose our attitude and condition our belief system.
          How can we change our belief system?
There are two easy ways-number one read books and watch motivation videos, secondly associate you with like-minded, goal oriented, and successful people.
You do it for a couple of months, and if you think these are not working and you are wasting your time, you can leave it altogether. However, with my own experience and with the experiences of other people I can assure you that it works. And once you start taking these two steps, you will continue it with the rest of your life.
Now, coming to the answer to the question I asked in the beginning. It is the negative belief system of a person which prevents him or her of taking action. If we change this negative belief system into a positive one, can do attitude, we start believing that whatever goals we set for ourselves are achievable, we start taking action. An action on a daily basis with a deep belief in our heart that- Yes, whatever goals we are setting we are definitely going to achieve.

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…
