I read this from Will Smith and thought Yeah! Yeah!
“Don’t expect…” Then I stopped and smacked myself about the chops, and came to my senses.
It is not your responsibility to ensure that I make it, or even help me, it’s up to me, and harboring thoughts like this is the most destructive thing that I / you can do.
In the words of Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow Rich,
To allow yourself a thought like that, you are priming your sub-conscious mind to accept failure, and believe that it will happen. And once that is in your mind, it combines with every other negative thought that you have purposely or lazily allowed to build inside.
And you can be 100% sure that it will come true.
If you will follow the link below ( I could not make it an automatic transfer), get through the first section of gibberish and listen to the rest, and you will see how the opposite will also work 100% for you.
My brother, Bernard Massey played and coached elite Aussie Rules Football. One of his prime messages to his players, was that it is the easiest thing in the world, to come 2nd in a contest – to just miss the tackle, to just arrive a split second too late, to just miss the mark… You learn to disguise it well, and most of the crowd and perhaps your team will be saying that you tried hard all day. YOU will know very well that you did not make the required extra effort to make it to the contest and achieve the goal. At first you will know the truth, but after a while you will allow yourself to believe the lie.
As Caleb Maddix put it, you have to envisage and believe that you are good and capable, and at “it” now, and go forward and work accordingly to enhance your performance and standing.Step by step, you will make a difference and start to achieve your goals.
And fully understand that you will never do it entirely alone, but…if it is to be, it’s up to me.
