Success is not something that happens to us, it is something that we create for ourselves. By understanding how we produce results in our life, we can become intentional creators of our own success.
Success Creation 101: Thoughts -> Emotions -> Actions -> Results
Our thoughts are creating our emotions, which determine the type of action we take, and ultimately the results we achieve. That is why trying to be successful through action alone is a tiring uphill battle. Understanding what is happening internally within our minds is key for creating the results we desire.
The almost clichéd Henry Ford quote “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right” holds true. The moment you decide ‘I can’t, it won’t work out, im not good enough’, your mind shuts down to the possibility of success, your emotional state reflects your thought pattern, you don’t take the action necessary for it to be possible, and the lack of results just reaffirm the limiting thought you decided to accept at the beginning.
It can become quite a downward spiral if we do not have the level of self awareness necessary to observe the correlation between our consistent thought pattern, and the outcomes we are achieving.
With this in mind, ask yourself; what thoughts am I letting run my day? Am I setting myself up for success by filling my mind with empowering thoughts? or am I accepting failure before I have even tried by believing that I can’t? Decide now what empowering thought you will take with you throughout your day. Something that will remind you of this truth; you can achieve anything you put your mind to.
After all, ‘whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right’.
