#277: Do You Believe In Your Success?
Friday, April 02, 2010
We get our inspiration and encouragement from many sources. One of them is books such as "The Power of Positive Thinking" and "The Magic of Thinking Big" and "The Greatest Salesman in the World" and "Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude."
But, religion aside, there is one book -- the Bible -- that perhaps more than any other has led people from despair and disbelief in themselves to exhibiting positive, radiant, vibrant personalities.
Notice the spiritual power in Mark 9:23 -- "If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."
And in Matthew 17:20 -- "If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed...nothing shall be impossible unto you."
Or Matthew 9:29 -- "According to your faith be it unto you."
Do you believe you WILL have a successful weight loss journey? Or are you still plagued with uncertainty?
Life becomes better and more fulfilling when we expect the best -- of circumstances and situations, other people and, most important, ourselves. Looking for the positives in life frees us from self-doubt because we then believe wholeheartedly that nothing is impossible.
But we must believe. We must have faith, as tiny as a mustard seed, that we shall overcome difficulties and obstacles and reach our ultimate goal.
People are defeated because in their heart, in their mind and in their soul, they do not believe they can be successful.
Expect the best. Always believe in yourself. Do not be denied. Do not be waylaid by insincerity or insecurity or doubts. Put your heart fully into your efforts and you will succeed. Believe, truly believe, and good things will come into your life. Visualize the new you and expect positive results.
Live your life as if your journey is of great importance because in actuality it is -- for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.
Believe in your success.
