Do you want more better finances, success, health, love or happiness? There is a way to bring these into your life. There are certain principals in the Bible that people have used for thousands of years to bring these good things. Jesus said faith is key to receiving good things.
Faith starts in the mind, so to achieve success, train your mind to activate the power you need for success in these areas. Psychologists have said for many years that your attitude, your confidence that you can achieve a goal is the most important thing towards achieving it. A famous study by a Yale professor named Rosenthal demonstrated that when teachers believed their students were top achievers, they became better students just because of the teachers faith in them. You must have faith in yourself.
Many famous athletes, inventors, businessmen, etc. talk about the power of confidence. During the last year I heard on two different occasions that the most important thing that determines if an aspiring actor makes it or not is confidence. OJ Simpson, one of the greatest running backs in the NFL wore braces on his legs when he was a child. At a football game he walked up to the best running back in the league and told him that some day he would be like that man, he would be the best running back. The man probably didn’t have much faith that OJ could do it, but OJ did. He daydreamed about it every day. Visualizing a goal is one of the best ways to make it happen. When I say OJ run the football in pro games it looked like magic. I wondered how he could move so quickly as the defenders made their moves. Later I realized he had done it a million times in his mind before he ever made it to the pro’s.
Think about it, if you have two students studying for the same test, and one believes that if he studies well he will do well, he will be more likely to study harder and longer than the student who believes he has no chance of getting a good grade. “What’s the use?” he will say.
Affirmations and visualization are powerful ways to increase your ability and confidence. Find a powerful sentence to say ten times every day. It helps to look in a mirror and say it out loud. You might say something like, “I am happy, healthy, wealthy and wise.” Or you might take a verse from the Bible “I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13.
Affirm it, visualize it as often as you can every day. The more you do it, the better. I promise you, this will help you get good results, millions of people have done it and will tell you it works.
