Belief powers successful action. This is the reality. While we can say to ourselves that believing to achieve is possible for others, but not possible for us, we still have to confront this reality.
If you look at any successful person, from multimillionaires to billionaires, to captains of industry, to political powerhouses, it should be easy to see how their beliefs propel their actions. Let me say it again, belief powers successful action.
The most successful people in the world have amazing powers of belief. They can be like Oprah Winfrey who came from absolutely nowhere and became a female billionaire in the United States. She did not have family connections, she did not go to the right schools, there was no army of people looking to promote her when she began her career. Through sheer force of will and unstoppable belief, she became a billionaire.
Considering all the factors working against her – black, female, a rape victim, a survivor of emotional abuse, a survivor of several rejections – she still made it. As the stoic philosopher, Epictetus said, “Circumstances do not make the man. They merely reveal him to himself.”
When you believe, you have a tremendous power core located deep within you. It doesn’t matter what’s going on outside of you. It doesn’t matter how many people point at you and laugh at you and call you crazy. It doesn’t matter how many people have it in for you to block your every step. It doesn’t matter what your feelings are. Regardless of how much access you have to resources, it really doesn’t matter. What matters is that you have this store of power locked within you that you can access at any time.
This is the secret most successful people have. They are able to tap into the amazing powers of belief. They believe in themselves, their cause, their projects so much that their belief translates to action. Even better, when they meet obstacles and setbacks like everyone else, it doesn’t faze them… because they believe in what they’re doing and what they are trying to accomplish.
Their power of belief is so strong that it produces infectious confidence that people around them simply can’t ignore or fight off. Have you ever noticed that successful people tend to reach the highest levels of power and financial wealth because they are able to inspire people around them? That’s how unstoppable their confidence is. It is not just for them. They don’t just lock it away or keep it to themselves. Instead, it spreads far from their initial circle of influence.
Indeed, successful leaders like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and others, are able to do massive things in life because they inspire others around them to share their beliefs… and be empowered by the confidence this belief produces. The good news? If they can do it, you can too.
