Taking Control Of Your Life
Take away the letters I and M from “Impossible”, it says “I M POSSIBLE”.
Take Positive Action
There are 2 types of people in our world, the active and the passive. Only about 10% of people are proactive and although they are very much in the minority they are the movers and shakers in every field. They are the people who take their lives into their own hands and make things happen. And great things happen to them because they act on every opportunity that comes their way.
Action Speaks Louder Than Words
A great idea is worthless unless you act on it immediately. A measure of success is how fast you can develop and implement an idea. So, if you have a great idea, immediately develop an action plan to implement and make that idea a reality.
Adopt An Attitude Of Positive Expectancy
Achievers expect to succeed. They look for the positive rather than the negative side of things and as such they take everything as a positive learning experience. They are always optimistic and energetic and are an inspiration to others.
Adopting this attitude of positive expectancy will keep you focused on achieving your goal instead of an all the bad things that might happen. Worry is a waste of time and energy because it cultivates feelings of helplessness. Worry has been defined as negative imagination or negative goal setting. It is counter productive and should be avoided at all times. To dispel worry, shift your attention by focusing on positive actions and strategies.
This attitude of positive expectancy will also attract the right people, circumstances and resources to help you achieve your goals. Your sincerity, earnestness, desire to succeed and commitment to do what it takes will endear you to the right people who will help you to succeed because people are naturally attracted to and trust people who are positive, optimistic and energetic.
Knowing Exactly What You Want
However, before you can succeed, you must know what it is that you want. Do not be afraid to dream big dreams. You must make sure that your dreams are big enough to excite you just thinking about it.
Do not be held back by looking at your present circumstances. It is not important where you are or where you came from. More important is where you are going.
However, most important is your unflinching belief that you deserve to succeed. Some people are half-hearted about desiring success. They fail soon enough because they do not believe that they deserve success. Some even fear that they cannot handle success should they succeed. Such doubts will surely sabotage your attempts to succeed.
Just remember that some of the wealthiest people today did not have big money in the beginning of their careers. All they had were big dreams and the courage to pursue them wholeheartedly.
