How to achieve that elusive confidence and at the same time achieve your goals in life? Well, I have found it. Good old Dr. Ellis published, wrote something in 2005 and these are the golden nuggets to chew on. Follow these four steps described below and you will be amazed how effective these steps are.
POWER OF ATTRACTION: Make your purpose brilliant. Keep it clear. Seek to energize it with positives. Do not lumber up your plan. Centralize it. Modify it. Create it as a necessity. Form in to it the indispensable. Then embody yourself into it.
See that nothing about you defeats, or neutralizes attraction. Have a burning interest in your proposition. Look for fulfillment. Anticipate success. Make the world feel that you know you are right. Stop asking folks if they think you will succeed. Of course they do not, because they have not.
Hold your mind relaxed in Silence. Make your desire active.
Set your wishes in motion. Confidence attracts confidence.
Positives attract positives. Bring out your latent forces, they only need arousing. THINK AND ACT.
YOUR MENTAL ATTITUDE: Have faith in yourself. Arouse faith in others. Think in the affirmative. Assert your hope and confidence. Root out every doubt. Help someone out of their slough of doubt and despondency. Believe in the world, in life, in growth, in possibilities. Let your faith be as big and bright as the sun. “Cast not away your confidence which hath great recompense of reward.” “Dwell in confidence.”
“Hold fast your confidence and hope unto the end.” Keep your mental attitude independent. Keep it brave. Think of money as a means, not as an end. Seek wealth for the power of service it gives. Have a generous mental attitude.
Help others succeed. Banish fear, worry, indecision, timidity, irresolution, anxiety from your mental attitude, they paralyze effort. Trust yourself. Trust others. Have a mental attitude that is supreme, divine, and absolute. Spend your last dollar like a king. Guard the loins of your mind with “I WILL.” “I CAN.” All the mountains of difficulty will melt before your presence.
PERSISTENCE AND PLANNING: A plan is a mighty source of power. Do not work and live “hit-or-miss” in your activities day by day. Have a plan. Sit in Silence a few moments each morning and create a plan. You can double your efficiency.
Think out a plan, open a way. Get an effectual insight. Keep your plan under your cap, and work it out. Persist in your plan. Stick to it. Never grow sour or negative in your manner. Keep it sweet. If your plan is blocked, dig in another direction. Build a new foundation. Shake off doubts and start new. Unless your success makes you happy it is not success. Deep at the heart of the Universe lies happiness. Live closely to that heart, in persistent power of service.
IMPERSONATE YOUR DESIRES: Impersonate greatness and you will become great. Impersonate loveliness and you will become lovely. Why do actors become matinee idols? They could readily marry a hundred times a month. It is quite impossible for an actor to remain unmarried. What is the secret? Can a person get it? Certainly; here it is. Actors impersonate heroes, villains, model husbands, daring lovers, in a real way. They think, plan, and train themselves to impersonate the character, they make it so real that people think it must be a part of their nature. This is what we call, “Fake it until you make it” mode. Impersonate you achieving your goals and see it happening. Power is in your thoughts.
Incorporate these steps in your life and tell me if these step-by-step will change your life or not. It is in your hands. -SjC
