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.

We all have dreams, some have big and some have small, but all have dreams. Our destiny is determined by what we do with our dreams, whether we go after it to make it true or we don’t follow it blaming the outer circumstances. We Claim that our situations are different from others. We make a hell lot of excuses why we can’t make an effort to live our dreams. There may be many reasons for not living our dreams, and one of the chief reasons is feeling embarrassed for not achieving what we set out and declare to achieve. What people will say if I fail? In our childhood days, we are trained to feel embarrassed about our failure. We heard sentences umpteen times by the time we are grown, ‘all your friends will laugh if you fail.’ ‘Don’t you feel shame on your failure?’ Over a period of time we start believing that failure is embarrassing. And it is natural to feel embarrassed about failures. It becomes so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we fail to realize that with this thought we…
This is the biggest impediment in self-development and growth. God has made every individual well-packed with unique ingredients that are needed to live a dream life and made an impact on this world.But, why it does not happen in real life, in the practical life, in the day to day life? The root cause lies in our belief system. It is our belief system that is posing the biggest hindrance in accomplishing the goals we set for ourselves and living our dream life.In the name of practicality and pragmatic approach we forgo many wonderful opportunities that life gives us. Okay, now it is a well-known fact how our belief system develops? It is developed by the association we are in and the books we read. Yes, there is a great impact from the books, motivational videos, association.But the greatest of all these factors are; what we say to ourselves day in and day out. What we think about ourselves. What we believe what we are capable of doing?Give time to know and be aware of yourself, take …
In the process of achievement, we tend to overlook some of the basic questions. When we make a list of goals-desires/dreams with deadlines-we must keep in mind the order. What do we want to be? What do we want to do? What do we want to have? In one of my classes a student expressed her desire, ‘I want to be a bestselling writer?’ Now, she wants to achieve a goal that tags her as a bestseller writer. The number one the thing she will have to do is to think and feel that she has all the ingredients in her that are required to be a best seller. The process of achievement starts with the thought process. All the changes happen inside first then only outside change will take place. Number two: learn about the bestseller writer, what is their daily routine, what they do daily? How do they develop the habit of writing? Stick to the routine until you achieve your goal. It sounds simple. Isn’t it? Of course, it is simple. You might ask this question, ‘if it is so simple why do most people fail to achi…
