How to believe to achieve Janice B Gordon

How to believeFrench writer and Nobel Prize winner Anatole France once said, “To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe”.

But how do you believe? 

There is a saying ‘what you believe you will achieve’, but it is not that simple or passive, things do not just come to you; you have to make things happen. Brian Kim set out in ‘How to Believe You Can Do Anything’ a strategy for gaining belief

First you must write down your belief and choose your words carefully, you must emotionally engage with the words.

Then visualise the belief as if it is already achieved, how would if feel, taste and look like? How would you act and what would you say?  Start to embody the feeling of the belief and own it.

Now you need to continually reinforce your belief:

·         Write down you belief every day ‘I am …’ and post it everywhere that your eyes can see, your fridge, your bathroom mirror, above your bed, in your car, at your desk etc…

·         Associate and engage with people who have already achieve your belief or share your belief

·         Take continued and positive actions to make the belief happen ‘if you do what you have always done, then you will get what you have always got’.

·         Acknowledge and record your progress and celebrate your achievements

·         Continue to reinforce your belief and your belief will grow exponentially.
