You have probably heard, “Do Your Best”
But how does one do this?
It starts with Belief: Belief in yourself, your abilities and those around you.
“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose,
and burning desire, can be translated into riches. “ Napoleon Hill
Now that you believe, you’ve got to be Entirely Focused. Visualize your desired outcome.
“Relentless pursuit of your changing priorities“ E. Papp
Your focus can be likened to that of a magnifying glass…Converging all your energy to one spot.
Make sure you are using your Strengths and applying Self Discipline. For example:
Strengths can be (Optimism, results focused, great with people, etc)
a great assessment to take comes from the book “Now Discover Your Strengths” by Marcus Buckingham.
“Being in a position or job that Doesn’t utilize your strengths is like trying to swim upstream.
It will leave you tired and unfulfilled. “ E. Papp
Self Discipline is simply developing good habits that will help you attain your goal.
And finally Think and Take Action.
Take Time To Think. Many of life’s answers are inside of us;
we just need to take the time to turn down the noise so we can think.
And once we think we must then Act.
Take Action. “Faith without works is dead.” James 2
