Everyone experiences a great deal of unpleasant, embarrassing, and discouraging situations. But unsuccessful and successful people deal with these situations in exactly opposite ways.
Successful people focus on putting positive thoughts into their memory bank. Unsuccessful people dwell on unpleasant situations. If you’re reading this right now you either want to be successful or are a good friend of mine, and hopefully both! If you do want to be more successful then you should practice recalling pleasant, positive experiences and count your blessings! I’ve begun to practice recalling pleasant situations and I actually wrote down a few amazing experiences on a note card to remember! I am very appreciative of everything and have to give some credit to this method.
Another practical thing you can do is to take actions that support your HOPE! What is it you desire? What is holding you back from reaching it? What you hope for, you can have. This method has been proven time and time again, but you still might not believe it, which is why you will stay exactly where you are. BELIEVE. Act on what you hope for! People who consciously think of their hopes and then act to make them happen are the people you see who are living their dreams!
The next time you experience fear, calm yourself. Then search yourself for an answer to this specific question: “What kind of action can I take to conquer my fear?” Here are some examples of fear and some possible action cures:
Fear Fear of failing an exam
*Action*Convert worry time into study time.
Fear Fear of things totally beyond your control
*Action*Turn your attention to helping relieve the fear of others and pray.
Fear Fear of what other people may think and say
*Action*Make sure that what you plan to do is fair. Then do it. No one ever does anything worthwhile without being criticized.
Fear Fear of people
*Action*Put them in the correct perspective. A person is just another human being pretty much just like yourself.
We all experience fear in one way or another, but the most successful people feel the fear then do it anyway! They take action! BE decisive! Instead of dwelling in fear, take action! Do something. Recall pleasant experiences often and get going!
