Using the Laws of Success to Empower Yourself
4. The Law of Belief. Whatever you believe, with emotion, becomes your reality. The key to this law is emotion. We are inundated with messages and thoughts all day long. You may agree or disagree passively without even giving the messages much thought. However, when you FEEL something, you act on it. You live by it. When you tie emotion to a belief, it becomes a part of you. In fact, others know what you believe often without you telling them because your deep beliefs are demonstrated consistently in how you live your life.
How does this apply to work? Do you believe you are an amazing person? Do you believe, with emotion, that you are the best in your field and your clients are lucky to work with you? I don’t mean being on an ego trip… I mean being confident.
Assuming your work environment and line of work supports you as a person with integrity, how can you strengthen your belief in yourself to be more successful? It’s time to believe YOU are destined to be amazing. If you work in sales, having a confident, positive attitude is critical for high achievement. When you carry yourself with confidence, enthusiasm and with an air of success, your clients will trust you and listen to your recommendations at a much high rate than if you appear apprehensive or unsure of yourself. You must be believe in yourself before your will be successful in a career.
Let’s review one of Brian’s exercises: Determine a goal that you would like to achieve and then go through this process: First, as yourself a question like, “Would I like to be one of the top 10 percent of salespeople in my field?” Your answer to this question should be “Yes!” Then ask yourself, “Why aren’t I already?” Why aren’t you already in the top 10 percent? What is holding you back? What fears, doubts and limitations are blocing your progress? Why aren’t you achieveing your goal at this very moment?
“There are a thousand excuses for every failure, but never a good reason.” –Mark Twain
It’s time to refuse to accept anything less than the best from yourself. No more excuses, no more letting yourself off easy, no more being weak. It’s time to believe in yourself and prove that you’re right!
5. The Law of Concentration. Whatever you dwell upon grows and expands in your life. If you think about increasing your effectiveness as a salesperson, you will actually find yourself doing the things that make this a reality. Unfortunately, most people go through their day without any focus. Their thoughts are scattered, they’re stressed, worried, frantic, bored, frazzled but not focused. That’s not a characteristic of a successful person.
You are what you think about. If you want to become amazing in your field, you need to focus your thoughts on how to improve your day-to-day activities and how to get closer to your goals. If you find yourself worrying about not succeeding or dreading certain activities, sure enough you will find ways to avoid the very activities you need to do to excel. Do not give yourself the option of living unconsciously. From now on, you hold yourself accountable for having positive, focused thoughts.
6. The Law of Attraction. You are a living magnet and you inevitably attract into your life people and circumstances in harmony with your dominant thoughts. If you haven’t seen The Secret yet, it’s time! We energetically attract positive or negative people, events and experiences into our lives based on what we send out. That is why your thoughts are so important. Your thoughts become your reality – they are creating your future long before the experiences arrive.
“The more clear and consistent your thoughts and actions are in the direction of your dreams and goals, the quicker you will achieve what you want. When you are positive and optimistic about yourself, and your products or service, you broadcast a form of positive mental energy that attracts back to you an endless chain of leads, prospects, referrals, and sales opportunities. The better you become at serving your customers, the better customers will be attracted to you for you to serve.” –Brian Tracy
7. The Law of Correspondence. Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world. People respond to you based on what you are sending out to them. The way others treat you is a reflection of the way you think about yourself and the way you you think about them. If you are dissatisfied with your relationships or the people you are attracting into your life, stop and think about who you really are on the inside. As you become more confident and a better person, you will find yourself surrounded by better people.
In order for your life to improve, your role in your life must change. You must be more aware, proactive and accountable. As your personal attitudes improve, everything and everyone around you will also improve. It may feel somewhat overwhelming. It’s also exciting because you are now in control of your future. In Brian’s words, “By taking deliberate, purposeful systematic control over every aspect of your thinking, you will take complete control over the entire future of your career. You will make more progress in a few months than you may have made in several years.”
