I’ve said many times before, the word “Belief” is the most powerful word in any language. Belief is so powerful because it applies to every area of our life, and it’s what makes us do what we do. Every decision we make, every action we take…it’s all based on what we believe.
You can actually use belief as a tool to accomplish more and build the life you want. Today, I’d like to share with you a simple 4-part system for turning your belief into reality, and making your reality EXACTLY what you want it to be. Here’s how:
1. Birth of it – Hope turned into vision.
(I believe I Can!!) Because our minds don’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s perceived…
Take what you hoped for, the promise, and put yourself into that picture… with as much detail as possible. What exactly are you doing, what are you wearing, is someone with you, is it nighttime or daylight, how do you look, how do you feel? Behave accordingly! VISUALIZE YOURSELF AT THE FINISH LINE CAUTION- DON’T VISUALIZE based on what you think can happen based on circumstance. VISUALIZE BIGGER! Visualize based on pro-active belief, not on circumstances.
2. Feed it – Belief Building
That which builds your belief is where you need to spend time. Maybe it’s BYOB- bombarding your own brain with positive information or relationships. Maybe it’s religious study; worship, prayer, bible study. In any case, it’s keeping yourself in the right fellowship and mindset to believe in a BIG way!
3. Pro-Act On it – Do something!
Make a Commitment! Move! Follow the plan! Don’t sit in the corner wishing things would be better; it’s promised that your life is to be fabulous… look for that! It’s likely already going on around you! Remember, it’s a matter of motive. Do what you need to do in order to see the promise happen, not to force it to happen. Had Sarah slept with her husband because she was trying to hurry up the baby it would have been one thing, but if she did it because she knew that was a part of the process in order for the baby to be, that was another.
THIS IS THE ONE THAT KEEPS MOST OF US FROM ENDING UP WHERE WE WANT TO END UP. WE DON’T DO ANYTHING WITH WHAT WE’VE LEARNED! IF THE BELIEVE ELEMENT ISN’T PRACTICED, ALL THE KNOWLEDGE YOU’VE GAINED GOES TO WASTE AND ALL THE TRAINING IS FUTILE.
Take the Risk!! What if… what if… so what!
Leave the “Zone”!!
Physically BELIEVE, feel it.
I’ve purposely written only a few words here. The point is to see who’s taking this life-changing information in. Call Shelley to let her know you’ve read this and would like to know what these 4 lines mean concerning you finally achieving your goals. When you do- I have a big surprise for you. Will you believe and make the call?
4. Check On It – Set goals, tell people about the goals you’ve set and ask them to follow up with you to hold you accountable to these goals
Know the difference between ‘get up goals vs. go up goals’. Get up goals are the ones you tell everyone. They’re the ones you want people to know about so you’ll ‘get up’ off your booty and do what you need to do. ‘Go up goals’ are the ones that involve your fondest, biggest dreams. Those you share with the people closest to you. Experience teaches that those goals will change sometimes and can also be seen as arrogance. Share those with the people you trust the most.
Talk about it!! Talk about it!! Talk about it!! ALL THE TIME!!!
Set deadlines for yourself and don’t push them back!
Make a covenant agreement- do your part! Do the work!
Today we talked about how to make believing turn into results for you. Try walking by belief and not by circumstance and just see how different your life will be!!!
