I feel everything starts and ends with belief! If you want to start a business then you must first believe. If you want to be successful then you must believe. If you want to change your life financially then again you must first believe. If I had to define belief in my own words then I would say it is having faith whether you have done something or not in yourself and your journey in life.
My belief level increased when I
1. ...Changed my language and started saying to myself " I will be successful in the work God has prepared me to do", " I will teach many people how to get their lives in order financially" and " I will inspire others to be the best they can be" Basically you must speak it in order to believe it.
2. I changed my environment. I filled my environment with self development books and audios and I made sure everyday I read in order to grow. Even today I never ride in my car without a self development message.
3. I changed my thinking. I fight hard daily to keep a barrier around my mind so negative thoughts will not enter. I just believe that life is a series of problems that can be solved with positive solutions. It is so much easier to be positive than negative. Negativity requires too much undeserving energy!
