What is Faith and How Does it Work? by Kathy Zimmer

Do you think Donald Trump or Robert Kiyosaki have faith? Do they get up every morning and struggle with deciding whether or not to take action that day to drive their businesses forward?

How are they able to get up every morning and not have to deal with managing themselves in order to take the actions they need to take? It’s because their personal philosophies or beliefs are programmed for success and the creation of wealth. You know this by their results. Before it showed up in their results, their beliefs were evident in their thoughts, words and actions. They both believed they could succeed and they did. Whether they realized it or not, they had faith that the results they desired would show up. Simple enough, right?

Using the Power of Thought to Improve Yourself – Week 26

If you believe you can, you can.

Sounds simple, right?

The problem for most people is that it works just as simple in the reverse. If you don’t believe you can, you won’t do the activities you need to do to be successful, or do them consistently enough. Like it says in Proverbs 23:7 . . . as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

What you think about yourself is very important. Your thoughts are powerful. They are actually containers that carry either good things or bad things. Discard all thoughts and self-talk that aren’t productive towards your success. Feed your heart and mind with things that will make a positive change in your life.

Belief, Skill, and Action – Week 18

If you’ve been in business for any length of time, you’ve probably heard of these 3 key elements of success. I want to briefly talk about the first two, then focus on the third element, which is action. Maybe you’ve worked on yourself regarding the first two, but if you’re not taking action, you won’t get very far. If you’re not moving forward in your business, then one or more of these elements need to be addressed.

It all starts with a decision. Make a decision now that you won’t accept mediocrity, debt, lack or whatever else you want less of in your life. Og Mandino, in his masterpiece, “The Greatest Salesman in the World” said in Scroll I to “decide today to begin a new life.” This can be done in a moment. It really IS up to you. Let the old negative way of thinking and failures of the past, stay in the past. Do not underestimate the power in making a firm decision and declaring that things WILL be different in your life.
