No matter what you do and regardless of your occupation, higher status, higher pay come from one thing:increasing the quality and quantity of your output. Do this:
Think, “I can do better.” The best is not unattainable. There is room for doing everything better. Nothing in this world is being done as well as it could be. And when you think, “I can do better.” ways to do better will appear. Thinking “I can do better” switches on your creative power.
Think Big Enough to see that if you put service first, money takes care of itself. In the words of Publish shore: A wise man will be master of his mind, A fool will be its slave.
Because of these errors many people sell themselves short. They fail to tackle challenging situations because it “takes a brain.” But along comes the fellow who isn’t concerned about intelligence, and gets the job.
Here are the three guides to acquiring and strengthening the power of belief:
Think success, don’t think failure. At work, in your home, substitute success thinking for failure thinking. When you face a difficult situation, think, ”I’ll probably lose.” When you compete with someone else, think, ”I’m equal to the best, ” not ”I’m outclassed. ” When opportunity appears, think ”I can do it , ” never ”I can’t.” Let the master thought ”I will succeed” dominate your thinking process. Thinking success conditions tour mind to create plans tat produce success. Thinking failure does the exact opposite. Failure thinking conditions the mind to think other thoughts that produce failure.
Remind yourself regularly that you are better than you think are. Successful people are not supermen. Success does not require a supermen. Nor is there anything mystical about success. And success isn’t based on luck. Successful people are just ordinary folks who have developed belief in themselves and what they do. Never-yes, never-sell yourself short.
Believe Big. The size of your success is determined by the size of your belief. Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success. Remember this, too! Big ideas and big plans are often easier-certainly no more difficult-than small ideas and small plans.
