Your Thoughts Control Your Life | Success versus Failure

Your Thoughts Control Your Life | Success and Failure
Your Thoughts Control Your Life | Success versus Failure

Today I am going to be discussing a quote that was made by Henry Ford.

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right."
-Henry Ford 

It is important to to understand the power within our thoughts. Our mind and the thoughts we have can affect the ways in which we succeed as well as fail in life. If you think that you can do something, then you will be able to. The positive thoughts that we have and the optimism that we have for ourselves can greatly impact the outcome of our endeavors. If you think you can't do something, then you most likely will not be successful in your quest to do something. Just as positive thoughts can affect our outcome favorably, the negative thoughts that we have can affect our outcome resulting in failure.

If you have a lot of doubt within yourself, then there is a high chance that you will not be triumphant in what you set out to do. If you feel negative or are experiencing self-doubt about something you want to obtain, evaluate why you feel that way. Is there a reason for these thoughts? Analyze the logic behind these thoughts. If there are actual reasons for why you feel negative, then work on bettering yourself in those areas so that you can be successful in the future. If there aren't any reasons for these thoughts, remind yourself of your capability of being able to be a success within the thing that you think that you can't do. One of the things that I do when I feel self-doubt and that negative voice telling me that I won't be a success is I tell myself,
 "I can do it. I will be successful." 

Make it a habit of constantly declaring out loud to yourself that you are capable of doing what you set out to do. To be honest, it is almost kind of like a "Fake it until you make it" type of thing. I still feel self-doubt a lot within a lot of things that I do, but as I tell myself everyday that I can do what I set out to do.. I am able to accomplish more and experience more opportunities. 

Do not let self-doubt and fear control you. You can do anything. Reach for the stars. Work towards what you want. You can obtain whatever your heart desires. You can do this. Believe in yourself and tell yourself that you can do anything. Tell yourself daily and if you still feel self-doubt, listen to some songs to pump up your belief in yourself. I know when I have that doubt, listening to music also can help and reinforce a positive feeling as well as a positive aspect towards whatever it is that I want to accomplish.
