Believe You Can Achieve
By Annie Chua 08/20/2016
Napoleon Hill author of Think And Grow Rich said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
I read this book more than 10x since 1992; those words were planted deep in my subconscious mind that I could not help myself to share with you the elements that have helped me achieved my goals.
#1 Time is an Essence
Time is the fundamental part of everything we do. LIVE Life as if it is your Last. Many successful people have been heard quoting these words in many of their encouraging speeches. Individuals who followed have gained success in life. With this in mind, it is likely that every day of our lives will be worthwhile and lived at its best. Let’s say when an opportunity knocks we think about it, study and weigh it in a manner where positive points level more than the negative. Always use the 80/20 rule. When I was writing my book, I listed five elements to share; I picked the best three which are most important ones. 3 is my 20%which will give me 80% impact to send encouraging messages to a reader like you. The number one element is your Time. Your present situation is your best time. Do not procrastinate on things that you would like to accomplish. When you take action today and look back a year from now. You would say “I did it!” and you’ll feel proud of what you have accomplished.
#2 Conquer Your Fears
Fear can either destroy us or make us. So I will ask you, which one would you choose! Of course choosing the latter will turn our fear into a source of inspiration to do more, to share more and be more in life. Fear of making a mistake doesn’t mean we cannot achieve our goals. Embracing that fear will not get us further instead we need to pause for a while, take a deep breath and wait till our mind is set-up to move forward. Similar to a frozen computer, when too much information is being processed we need to stop. And once ready, hit F9 button to refresh the memory. Let’s do the F9 exercise; please feel free to follow as this will benefit you. (I would like you to sit up straight then close your eyes, take a deep breath holding it for few seconds, then through your mouth, slowly release the air while pushing your stomach in to release all the air and take a deep breath in again, hold another second then slowly releasing the air naturally. You will notice that your body is much more relax than earlier). Do this every time you feel you need them. It will help ease your mind and body which would help recharge your energy.
Did you know that Fear has a sister? Doubt is the twin sister of Fear. Doubt kills so much of our success, like a bug that keeps on whispering in our ears to not even start. It’s like saying “don’t do it“. or “you’re going to fail.” Listening to these buggers, you can end up wasting time that you never reach for the Stars. MOVE TO SILENCE DOUBT and achieve success for you.
#3 Do a Reality Check
Our actions always have consequences. Realistic thinking helps us to determine what those consequences could be. When I was in a process of going to Canada, I went through these elements to survive whatever consequences come my way. Here’s the good news: I did not waste time, I conquered that fear, killed my doubts, did a reality check then travelled 7000 miles away and face the future with optimism.
Here’s the second one, I did not waste time, I conquered my fear, silence my doubts, did a reality check then gathered my journal and published a book titled: Domestically Yours: A Caregiver’s Inspiring Journey.
This is a compelling story of my fascinating journey to the Province of Alberta in Canada with only persistence and courage on my back. A non-fiction book that will surely inspire every individual to reach for their dream.
So get on that vehicle of success, keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the steering wheel. All your hard work will grow big. Believe that you can achieve!
