The Power of Thought

“When we think of failure; Failure will be ours. If we remain undecided; Nothing will ever change. All we need to do is want to achieve something great and then simply to do it. Never think of failure. For what we think, will come about.” ~ Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

The key to success starts with  positive thoughts. If you don’t believe in your own ability to succeed then you might as well give up now. Your ability to follow through and finish the things you start depends entirely on you. If you believe that you will succeed, then you will succeed. But if you set out assuming that you will fail it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. That’s because by assuming that failure is inevitable you won’t push yourself to do your best and to pick back up when you fall.

But there’s something you can do that’s even worse than failure. You could not even try at all. It’s far better to give something a shot, even when you doubt success, than to do nothing. Even if you try something and fail, you at least had some chance to achieve something. If you’re so afraid of failure that you can’t even try, then nothing good will ever happen for you. If you’re unhappy with a situation, be it your career or your fitness, you have to decide right now that you are going to make a change for the better. You may be unsure of yourself at first, but realize that making changes in your life takes a lot of courage and it doesn’t happen overnight. As long as you keep trying to succeed there’s really no such thing as failure, just learning experiences.

So think of that goal you’ve been putting off because you’re afraid of failure— whether it’s applying for a great job or entering a 100 mile cycling event—and go for it. Don’t worry about what could go wrong and don’t hesitate. You might have to take some steps to prepare before you dive right in (like working on your resume or training on the bike) but take the first step now. Before you know it you’ll have the confidence in your ability necessary to achieve your goal. Keep your goal in mind and the possibility of failure won’t even occur to you.

While it may seem unbelievable that the key to your success is all in how you perceive it, it’s the simple truth. Ask someone that you think of as successful and happy how they do it. Chances are they won’t know how to answer. That’s because these people simply think of what they want and then do what they need to get it. Positive thoughts fill their brain, their gut, their heart…their being. So, stop getting in the way of your success. Don’t think failure, think positive thoughts. Tweet That!
