Thinking Is Believing - 4 Ways Your Frame of Mind Can Impact Your Success
Rismedia - May 30, 2008 By Kim Ades
Two real estate investors can have the same background; they’ve taken the same courses, graduated from the same programs, read the same books, attend the same conferences and work for the same company. One investor is doing an incredible business. The other is floundering and blaming the market, feeling that he is suffering because of his associate’s success. …And you know what happens when you start thinking that way? You start attracting exactly what you are focusing on right into your life.
The single most important difference between top performers in any profession and all the others is the way they think. Our frame of mind determines our outcomes.
Thinking is believing. Here is how it works:
Thought, Beliefs, Expectations, Results
Everyone has thoughts and for most of us they are fierce and continuous. In fact, they come to us at such a rapid and relentless rate, that for the most part we are not even conscious of the thoughts that consume us.
While they exist at a subconscious level, they are still the foundation of the life we create. Many of our thoughts are recurring, continuously repeating themselves over and over again in our minds. Thoughts that occur repeatedly become the beliefs that we hold about any given topic.
In turn, our beliefs are the seeds we plant that grow into the expectations we have. For example, if we repeatedly think that things never work out for us-we start to look for evidence that this is true and once we find it, it becomes a belief. Once it’s a belief, we come to expect things not to work out and when we expect things to not work out, typically they don’t.
-Our expectations have a direct impact on the results we experience in our lives.
-Our thoughts create the beliefs we have.
-Our beliefs generate the expectations we have.
-And our expectations drive the results we get.
So, if we want to change the results we get, we must begin with changing our thoughts.
