When building a profitable practice, it’s important not to underestimate yourself. Don’t underestimate your abilities, it’s making you fail. Think about a successful person you admire. This could be someone you know personally. It’s that self-made millionaire who started his own business, or you’re on to overcame lots of hardship to create an amazing life. Or maybe you’re in awe of some famous success like Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, or Stephen Hawking. Those people reached an incredible level of success. Even though they all encountered situations which virtually guaranteed failure. There’s one thing those people have in common.
And by the way, their field of endeavor doesn’t matter. Whatever successful people you encounter, they inevitably share one very important character trait. They believe they’re capable of anything and have an incredibly high belief in their abilities. They know that if they don’t have the skills and abilities they need to right now, they can get them. If they need help, they go out and seek it. They’re persistent, they persevere, and they don’t let failures define them. More than anything, they don’t underestimate what’s possible.
Successful people view ‘never been done’ as ‘not yet.’ Go back to your childhood. Do you remember trying to learn how to ride a bike? You never had ridden a bike in your life. Did that mean you couldn’t ride a bike? Of course not. You saw other people riding bikes, and that gave you the belief that you could do it as well. After trial and error and more than a few scratches and bruises, you could ride a bicycle with your eyes closed. Use that same approach to your current goals. Look around you. Have other people achieved what you’re trying to do? That’s proof positive that it’s possible for you. Even if you look for examples of success and don’t find them. That doesn’t mean you can’t be the first to do something.
All that’s required for more successes and fewer failures in your life is often a rock-solid belief in yourself. This doesn’t guarantee success. You still must act intelligently. You may have to assemble a team to help you or develop new skills and abilities. Before you do any of those things, you have to believe you’re truly capable of anything. Then if you stumble and fail, remind yourself that perfection doesn’t exist in the human condition. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off and move forward. Persistence is required to accomplish big things, but so is a healthy belief that you can achieve anything you want.
Believing in yourself is extremely important for your success. Check out our blog post here to learn about the power of self-belief.
