    You need to believe in yourself and in your product (whatever that is even if its your skills). One of the problems with IM now is that people spend all their time believing in the sales process and the money and don't care how crappy their product is.

      My friend that is awesome point you've made there. Ultimately, it is the product that keeps the money coming. If the product is crappy it will certainly slow down and affect your credibility. Thanks for sharing.

        Yep and as an added benefit if you focus on product you won't be buying half a million WSOs and kits taking you off in too many different directions.

      Your clear cut vision, where you are going to land after a certain period of time builds confidence in you enough to go through tough times.

      There are certain mind exercises through which you can develop this attitude.

    This is an excellent topic. I've learned a lot the hard way about this.

    I think the #1 important belief is in your self and in several ways. First,
    to believe in your ability to succeed. Second, the belief that you deserve
    to be successful; you deserve all the good things that come with success,
    not only in business but in any other areas of life.

    If you do not believe that you deserve it, then you'll only sabotage your own
    efforts.

    May I take a slightly different approach?

    You need to start from the position that you
    already ARE successful, not that you will be.

    Start from the positive "I have" or "I am"
    or "I own"... it's more powerful rather than
    saying 'I will'

    We each give off energy at 50,000 cells
    per second, so if we give off more positive
    energy we will be rewarded with that energy
    back to us.

    When you adopt this approach, the universe
    will certainly reward you well - try it!

    This is a great topic...

    Let's enjoy it.

      That's indeed a great way of looking at it Geoff.

      Most people want to be successfull other people belief they might be successfull but only when you know that success is as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow you will experience true success.

      But besides beliefing your success never forget that you must take action and that the road to success hardly every is a straight one.

      A very good book on this topic is "Think And Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill, who has interviewed the most successful people in the world in order to determine the essential factors of success. In this book you will read, besides ideas already summed up in this threat, a step by step plan to success plus many stories of how people actually became successful against all odds.

      Success to all of us!

    It's all about mindset. Once we sort out what's
    going on in our mind, we can achieve whatever
    we desire.

    We sort out what's going on in our mind from
    within, not from receiving 'data' through our
    senses.

    for me in on what I believe in in order to become successful is first of all always pray to God in the morning each day when you wake up to give you strength in order to achieve the difficult challenges that you will be facing each day. Reflect and meditate on what you will do each day. And lastly believe in your self that you can do it and you will personally see yourself very successful.

    You need to believe in your ability to help others solve a problem.

    If you do that, success will come.

    Just find a problem that needs a solution, and then solve it, and then charge for it.

      I also believe that you have to "believe" and expect that you can do it (whatever that is). Because any other subconscious and non supportive beliefs( like I am not worthy of success etc.) will cancel out any chances of being becoming and staying successful.

      In my experience, it's not what you are thinking, it's what you are picturing in your mind that will show up as the results in your life.

      In other words, if you look at "rich" pictures in your mind, then you will have rich results. And vice versa.

      The general opinion seems to be that you must believe in yourself, which I think is the sort of advice that you'd give to others. But do we really walk our talk as well as giving this advice?
      Actions speak louder than words - if we really believe in ourselves are we actually living it as well as telling others what's best?

      I don't want to sound "Zen" or anything because I am definetly not.
      Success is a state of being, and therefore it is an action.

      If you want to be successful, the first thing you must do is define success for yourself.

      Every persons definition of success is different.

      Success also requires action. Have you ever seen a successful individual who does nothing? Not very likely.

      The actions you take must be geared towards the success you wish to achieve. You must believe in these actions accomplishing your goals, or you are just wasting your time.

      If your actions are successful this will build belief in yourself, which will in turn motivate you to take more action, which will lead to more success. It is a cycle that continually builds upon itself.

      Wishing you all the sucess that you deserve.

    There are many things that we need to be come successful. I see alot of people in general putting alot of emphasis on "Why". Why is important yes, But You should also focus on HOW! It goes back to who/What/when/where/why/how. Ill go into greater detail

    Who: Who are you doing this for?
    What: What are you going to do to make it happen? What do you really want out of it?
    When: When are you going to start? If your answer is next week, Your probably not going to get it done.
    Where: Where do you need to be to make things happen for you? It could be at home, Work, Supermarket whatever...
    Why: Why do you want to be come successful at this? A good why makes the difference between success and failure however, it fails if you dont have the....
    How: How are you going to make this happen? What knowledge do you have to have in order to make this dream of yours come true?

    Thats personally what i did for myself and it has helped me more than simply having a "why"

It's a step by step process where in you need to believe on yourself and work hard in order to reach your goal. Once you reached your goal it would be more fulfilling when you know that you overcome all the hardships that blocks your way before reaching that goal.

  • Hello My friends, reading through all the contributions thus far, one important ingredient keeps showing up and that is the BELIEF IN YOURSELF. This is critical to your success in any enterprise, that you have to believe in yourself and capabilities. You almost will not succeed if you do not believe in yourself and no one will believe in you for that matter. Get to work and start building your belief muscles.

    Another aspect of being successful, I suppose, is having great people around you. Someone more qualified has said that you're the sum total of the 5 people you spend the most time with. Socially, I would say that's true.

    And, while I kind of like the bull-doggedness of being independent and not caring what people think (those who don't believe in my vision for the future) I'm just about old enough to makes things easier by surrounding myself with wonderful, positive, and happy people.

    So to answer the original question, I would say that it's important to understand the significance of the relationships that you cultivate. And, if someone is holding you back from realizing your dreams or ambitions then maybe it's time you had a heart-to-heart.

    Most people seem to agree that you must believe in yourself to succeed. But if you're not actually demonstrably achieving sucess, is the really important part of your mind that's always there in the background going to believe you when you tell yourself that you're already sucessful and that you deserve to succeed? To quote a couple of proverbs which I genuinely believe in from personal experience:
    "Actions speak louder than words" and "Nothing succeeds like success". To me, these two together mean that you've got to cut down on the philosophy and get on with the job. When you start getting minor results, your enthusiasm and energy soars so you get more results, so your enthusiasm and energy soars etc etc. Before long you've created your own 'success process' and then ALL of your mind believes that you're a success and that you deserve everything you're getting! Consequently, you achieve even greater success which you genuinely deserve because of your efforts and self-belief.

    Life is an experience of change.

    Your life is your experience of change seen from your unique perspective, your unique situation, your unique position.

    Change will happen anyway. That is the nature of Life.

    Success is what we experience when we manage the process of change and achieve the conditions or circumstances that we desire.

    Success is the process of managing change to reach a new condition or circumstance. It consists of both our managing change action, and our recognising our desired condition or circumstance when it is reached. It is the journey and the destination.

    So what do we need to believe in order to be successful?

    We need to believe that we can manage the process of change.

    We need to believe that the new condition or circumstance that we seek can be reached using the change management process that we employ.

    We need to believe that the new condition or circumstance that we seek is worth the effort of managing the process of change.

    We can break down what we need to believe even further:

    To believe that we can manage the process of change, we need to believe:

    - we have the ability to manage the process of change
    - we have the resources, or can get the resources to manage the process of change
    (those resources may be physical, intellectual, emotional or spiritual)
    - we have the capacity to take the required actions to manage the process of change

    To believe that the new condition or circumstance that we seek can be reached using the change management we employ:

    - we need to believe in our own talents an abilities
    - we need to believe that where our own talents and abilities are insufficient that sufficient talent and abilities will be provided through our own development or from elsewhere
    - we need to believe in the possibility of change in the direction we seek.

    To believe that the new condition or circumstance that we seek is worth the effort of managing the process of change.

    - we need to believe that we can feel life's positive emotions (such as love, joy, excitement, thrill, contentment, amusement, peace and many others). These are our real rewards for achievement and success.

    If I have to summarize in one word, it would be - yourself.
    There is no success if you do not believe in yourself.
    Of course, there are many other factors required for success (acting upon determined plan, persistence, continuous learning/development, etc.), but since we are talking what one needs to believe in, answer is definitely: You need to believe in yourself.
