HuMAN ACHIEVINg gOALS RESOuRCES A Totally Mental Makeover BY MICHAEL C. ANTHONY I believe success is based on three important strategies, and those who achieve success master all three and use them together to achieve their goals. By practicing each of these three things, you can achieve success that even surprises yourself! Successful use of these concepts first requires you understand each and know how to apply them to your actions. Crafting all three into habit takes some effort, but once you master this threepronged approach, it becomes second nature. I will show you how to turn the concepts of belief, tenacity and expectation into action and achieve your goals. This is how you will experience a Totally Mental Makeover. Strategy 1: Belief "If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning." -Mahatma Gandhi All great achievements begin with belief in a specific end result. You must believe in yourself and your ability to accomplish your goals. If your goals are career oriented you must believe in your organization or business. Often, belief is the most challenging part of achieving goals. Too many people doubt their mission and their ability to find success. This first step requires silencing that nagging voice in the back of your mind that tries to convince you success is not possible. Many allow it to convince them misperceptions are true and allow the voice to shape reality. You must ignore this voice and embrace belief in yourself. People sometimes make the mistake of thinking belief is a hard wired concept. They do not realize the control they have over their belief and they assume they either believe in something or they do not. Some life lessons have even taught us that unless we are able to see something, it does not exist. I have encountered many people who decide that until they achieve success they have no reason to believe it is possible. Without results, they do not think it is possible to put faith in their ability to achieve. Unfortunately, this creates a cycle of failure. The MHEDA Journal | Fourth Quar ter 2 013 63
