3 Basic Steps to Success in Anything
Since belief always precedes action, simply changing your beliefs can change your actions to those that will result in living any of your dreams.
It's not complicated at all. In fact, taking these three basic steps can make anyone a winner in their chosen endeavors.
1. Control and direct your thoughts.
It's a decision you make concerning what you think about. So whether you think success, or failure, that's what you will eventually reap.
Thoughts are powerful forces of energy and can only come from your own mind. Since you are the only person in charge of your mind, you create the thoughts that create the circumstances in your life. Since your thoughts create reality, you create your reality.
Just as the conscience mind is the source of thought, so the subconscious mind is the source of power. You give instructions to your subconscious mind through your thoughts. It doesn't know good from bad or right from wrong. It only follows your instructions, which are your thoughts. It will create anything you tell it.
Now, have you given some definite directed thought to your purpose or your mission? If so, is it written down? Without directed thought aimed at your purpose and goals in writing you are like the proverbial "ship without a rudder," wandering everywhere while going nowhere.
James 1:6-8 says, "He that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. Let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord, for a double minded man is unstable in all his ways."
2. Don't worry about the "how-to."
A big mistake is trying to figure out how you are going to do something before you do it. Start by believing you can do something and the "how-to" will follow.
Strong belief triggers the mind to figuring ways and means and the "how-to." So, the simplest way to do anything is to hold a mental picture of what you want as long as possible and as often as possible. Feel that you already have what you desire with certainty and you will see the "how to do it" become manifested.
Because our thoughts are vibrating energy, we create what we want by focusing our thoughts on those things. Jesus said in Mark 9:23, "According to your faith, be it done unto you."
3. Get going.
You're simply not committed until you take action. James 2:26 says, "Faith without works is dead."
There is a cause and effect to everything. You think a thought, and then you decide whether or not to act upon it. If you act upon it, there will be a result. If you do not act upon it, there will be a result.
Many times, we are forced to make choices without knowing the exact outcome. Should you remain undecisive in those cases? No choice is a choice and there will be a result.
Don't be afraid of taking action. Be in control of your life! Think positive thoughts, come up with ideas, seek advice from Godly people who are on the same page, spend time with God and seek His council, and then act!
Within you right now is the power to do things you never dreamed possible. This power becomes available to you just as soon as you change your beliefs
