This is the second part of “How Changing Your Beliefs Can Bring Your Success”. If you have not read the previous post, you can read it here.

Part 2

4. Past Results – There are things in life that you will see it as difficult or easy. If you are an experienced writer, you will say writing a book is easy and it can be done with effort or if you are an experienced plumber you will say that fixing a tap is child play.

Why do they see what they are doing as easy while it can be difficult for others? It is because they have done it before and they have the beliefs that they can do it again. Whenever you succeed at doing something, you will find that it is easier to do it the second time because you have the belief that can do it again due to your past success.

Why do so many millionaires say that making the first million is the hardest and after making their first million they still continue to churn out even more millions with ease? It is because they have the belief that they can do it again because they had done it before.

Before the birth of this blog, I have so many doubts in my mind that suspect my ability to set up a blog and have a significant amount of traffic to the site. My belief at that time was I do not have the technical skills to do it and I have zero ideas about setting up a website. I hesitated for some time and finally decided to just jump in and learn the ropes of setting up a website and blogging. Here I am with my blog and sharing personal development information with you guys. Am I confident about setting up a new blog now? Yes I do! I have now created a new belief that I am capable of setting up a self hosted blog due to the action I took and the results that I had achieved.

If you do not have past results that help to support your belief, you can roll up your sleeves and start to create them now. If you want to write a book then start writing a chapter a day. After you know you can write a chapter and you know that you are capable of doing it all over again then gradually after months of writing, you will get a book! This can be applied in any areas that you want results in. If you had achieved results and you believe that it can be done, over time it will just become a self fulfilling prophecy.

5. Creating the experience you want in the future as if it were here now – Whenever physical environment does not suggest the beliefs that you want, you can create an internal representation of what you desire in your mind to help you shape up your beliefs. Visualizing that you had already achieved your desired outcome will help you to create a new belief that you can do it. Visualizing desired outcomes will also help you to be more excited about achieve the goal.

If you are currently earning $1000 per month currently, which situation will cause you to feel more passionate and enthusiastic about waking up?

A. I am going to earn $1000 this month!

or

B. I am going to earn $10,000 this month!

The answer is obviously B!

Summarizing

We have the power to change our quality of life. If you are not happy about where you are today, you can make the choice and effort to change it. Changing your beliefs is the first step to success as where we are today is largely due to our beliefs. Let me give you an example.

A student was told that he is a bad student. If he believe that he is a failure as a student, do you think that he will try his best to excel in his studies? Probably not. He had already signed up for failure and in his mind he will be thinking why bother to work hard when he knew that he was going to fail in his studies?

What if he believe that he is an exceptional student? Will he wake up excited and passionate about his studies knowing that he can grab all those distinctions and merits. Will he tap into his inner resources and use it to the fullest potential to achieve his goals? Will he still take half hearted steps? I believe this time round, he will be excited and passionate to be able to achieve excellence in his studies.

In order to tap into our deep inner resources, we need to believe that we can achieve our desired results. This in turn will unlock our inner resources (it is powerful beyond what we can imagine) to achieve our desired results.

You may be asking, even if you had changed your beliefs into empowering one, does that mean that you are bound to be successful at all times? Probably not, there will definitely be failures along the way but if you maintain your empowering beliefs and keep on taking action, success will be found eventually.

Success breed success and keep the momentum going and having empowering beliefs is the first step towards success.

So what are your negative beliefs? List 5 of them down and replace the 5 negative beliefs with empowering beliefs today to see positive results in your life.

    Hey Keith,

    I believe I will be cutting my future articles that are too long into parts to help make it easier for reading. Thanks for the point.

    I really like the way you divided the large article into parts. I think it keeps it easier to read for most people. I’d have read it anyway as it is such a great article, but parts are probably better. Just like part 1, this is such a good article. If we can all just grab these truths and run with them we’ll open up a world of opportunities! Don’t have the beliefs? CREATE them! Great job with this Vincent.

    Hi,

    With regard to the comment of Ice I want to add the following.
    Too many people spend too much time on the ‘how’ and get then discouraged. Strive for your number of ‘why’ to outnumber your ‘how’ multiple times. It will then be a matter of time till the ‘how’ manifests in your life.

    Hi Ron Towns,

    As what the great people say, what ever we want to get, we need to see it in our mind first. That would be the first step to achieving our goals.

    Visualization is one of the most powerful tools to help realize goals. I enjoyed this article very much. I have been using this tool, along with vision boards, to improve my professional habits.A vision board is a powerful tool that anyone can use to shape an ideal future through the power of intention and visualization. Learning how to vividly imagine your desired results — attracting your perfect soul mate, radiant health, abundant career opportunities, or building personal and community relationships to give back — is the first step on the path to making them happen.

    Take a look at this book I found: http://www.thevisionboardkit.com. You can actually download a free copy of the first chapter to see if it suits you.

    @Jack
    Yes Jack, just like a Ferrari will command a better price compared to a Ford because it provide better of the “value” it can provide. I wonder is this a good example haha.

    @Mark
    Thanks for the feedback Mark. Your feedback will be helpful for me to sculpt my other articles.

    Cheers,

    Hi Vincent,

    Personally, I think splitting this title into 2 parts makes it an easier read. This is what I’d prefer.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers~

    I agree with you, Vincent – the way to increase your income is to provide better service. Better input always yields better output.

  9. Vincent says:

    Hi Ice,

    The first “how” would be to change your belief that you can achieve the goal of having 10x your income now, followed by consistent action in improving the value that you offer regarding to your profession. Having multiple streams of income will definitely help too. I recommend you the book “Multiple Streams Of Income” by Robert G.Allen to kick start your way to earning 10x your income. You can find the book over here Hope this helps. =)

    Who doesn’t feel excited if earning 10x more than his/her current pay. It brings us to the ‘HOW?’ questions.
