- Motivators For Productive Behavior
It Begins With Belief
If you get nothing else from these materials take this: Your little sister was right, mind control is real.
Well, maybe not in the way you imagine it for bending spoons and lifting a fiver from your friend’s wallet. But it’s true you control things with your mind because you control things by what you believe.
Napoleon Hill, an advisor to President Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1933-36, and best-selling author with more than 20 million copies of his books published worldwide wrote, “What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Hill’s statement isn’t just a clever saying it is a proven proverb. Never underestimate the power of your Belief for without it you can do nothing.
Belief comes in Four Stages and you advance through the stages with the tool of the Three A’s. Familiarize yourself with the Four Stages of Belief and the Three A’s and you are on your way to a lifelong habit of Mental Success.
Learning to build your Belief and overcome obstacles is a habit that will assure your Mental Success. Yes, your Mental Success can be assured. Guaranteed. One hundred percent. How? Mental Success is not about accomplishment but confidence. Mental Success is believing in yourself in the face of obstacles. This type of Belief is the difference between people who accomplish things and those who quit or never try in the first place.
From Chapter Five in the book The Five Fundamentals of Common Sense Success, a quote by President Theodore Roosevelt on Mental Success:
“It’s not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strongman stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming: who does actually try to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”
