What You Believe is All That Matters
Over the last few decades the amount of information we are exposed to daily has increased drastically. But for all the abundance, we still don’t get a clear picture of what is going on in the world. Most of the news we hear is highly negative, overly dramatic, and inspires fear. So it doesn’t surprise me that so many people are afraid to take a risk and go after their big dreams. However, right now is exactly the time–yes, in the middle of this recession–when you need to jump in with both feet. You just need to believe in yourself. If you have that, all else will follow.
I started investing in real estate in 1972, in the middle of the worse recession in the US since the great depression. Fortunately, I didn’t know that and even if I did, it probably wouldn’t have made a difference because I really believed that I could succeed. And sure enough, not only did I not lose my shirt, I became a millionaire. That recession didn’t stop me and this one shouldn’t stop you. Not believing in yourself and taking immediate action is the only thing that is guaranteed to kill your dreams.
Remember, all you need to worry about is your life, what you need, what you want, and know that if you keep working at it, you will get what you are after. If your dreams are that important to you, you will want them bad enough to do whatever it takes. And no fear filled news story will get in your way.
So turn off the TV, stop reading those dramatic headlines, and unsubscribe from all those pessimistic reports. Instead, read up on all the great success stories you can find on-line, in responsible and inspiring periodicals, and among the many stories in my book, How to Ignite Your Passion for Living. The most amazing stories of success are most often accomplished by ordinary people who simply have an extraordinarily strong belief in themselves and what they want. And there is no reason why you can’t be one of them.
