Happy New Year!
With the new year, it is an opportune time to revisit the importance of belief and faith. You see faith is a belief in something you cannot see (yet). And the law of life is such that what you believe in your heart and mind, you will gravitate towards achieving. So it goes without doubt that the most important thing in achieving any goal is to believe it. Most people will not set a big goal because they do not believe they will be able to achieve it and/or believe they will fail so they do not bother.
Here is a challenge for you… why not set a goal to develop a belief (as so develop the inner faith) that you can achieve and will be able to achieve your chosen goal? So whether that goal is to heal yourself of an ailment, or to expand your business or career, or to make a certain amount of money, or to have that amazing holiday – everything needs to come from the origins of an empowering belief.
So, how do we develop an empowering belief that we can do something and in turn develop the inner conviction (the inner faith) that we will achieve it? Here are some proven methodologies I have found helpful:
1. Positively affirm the goal to yourself verbally and with positive emotions many times a day (verbalise and emotionalise)
“I am feeling better & better each day. I am fully recovered”
“Everything I do makes me more & more money”
“Thank you for I am enjoying an amazing holiday with my family and friends”
When you say it, say it with passion and excitement. Mix it with empowering emotions like love, joy, and excitement by thinking of something that brings on that emotion or listening to music in the background that helps you feel good as you are doing your affirmations.
2. Visualisation (visualise) – get a sense or if you can, see the result you want in your mind. Get excited that it has happened. Feel good as you see the outcome you want.
3. Project the outcome to a higher source (prayer).
If you (like me) believe there is a greater source out there that loves you & wants to help you (I call it God, others call it Divine or Grace), then project it out using methods in 1 and 2 and believe that there will be a force or series of coincidences that will come to assist you and help you to strengthen this empowering belief system that will in turn give you the bounce in your step, the conviction in your heart, and the determination in your soul, to go and make it happen in the material world.
You see, it is all about belief. You must believe something if you are to achieve it otherwise it is pointless setting goals without an inner faith growing to help you take the necessary action to bring your faith into physical reality. Hang around people who help strengthen your belief – good people will always motivate you toward your goals.
Make it a point to always seek a way to develop the belief system behind the goal so that you can have that amazing power of inner faith that will give you the inner resources to keep going until you achieve the outcome you desire.
