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.

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’ I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…
A person once asked me, ‘why it is so that even after having clarity in my dream and after much effort I am not realizing my dream?’ What I explained to him, am sharing with you. Having clarity in the dream is the beginning of the achievement process. But you need to give your 100% to make your dream true. I, myself, have made an effort for many years for my dreams but in vain. However, the result started pouring in once I gave my 100% to the cause. Remember, when it comes to realizing your dreams it requires wholehearted effort. There should not be any ambiguity in it. There should not be any doubt. Your belief level should be 100% that you will get the result you are striving for. And your belief level will be intact if it is backed by wholehearted effort. I always say that success is realizing your dreams is based on a simple act. What makes success difficult? You will agree with me or when you will work on your dream you will realize that simple is not easy. Doing the simple and imp…

Sometimes, these learning which is supposed to help us achieve greater heights in life, but on the other hand, these causes hindrance, probably, one of the reasons may be while learning we learn many things which are negative learning that causes doubts in mind.
