Tim Ferris wanted to win a national sports title and was prepared to do whatever it took to realise his dream. He started from where he was, well where else is there to start. With belief, commitment and daily dedication, he won the San Shou kickboxing title just six weeks after being introduced to the sport. He worked really hard and gave his all every day, turning belief, commitment and daily effort into results. Yes Tim Ferris, had a strong sporting background and was physically strong, but the main reason he was able to achieve such incredible results, within such a short space of time, was because of his belief in himself, his drive, determination and commitment.

What about you, I am certain that, if you commit to your success, believe in yourself, you clarify your vision, set meaningful goals, create fulfilling action lists and you take inspired action daily, you too can succeed at almost anything.

Where you are right now is the perfect place to start down the path towards the life you have always dreamed of living. All that is required for you to start and sustain this incredible journey are a few crucial philosophical and behavioural shifts and a daily dose of willpower. Come join me on this wonderful ride of exploration and growth, where you can finally ignite that fire of inspiration in your belly, as you commit to “Get off your Ass” and create the life of your dreams.

The English poet Robert Browning once said:

“A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow, not next week, but today. The true super achiever is a doer not a dreamer. The critical ingredient is “Getting off your butt” and doing something. It is as simple as that!”

Do you Believe that your Potential is Limited in any way?
It is mistakenly believed that your potential is limited by your current abilities, knowledge, skills or even your current circumstances, whereas, in reality, your limits only exist within your own self-imposed comfort zone and restrictive beliefs. You can completely remove any perceived limits and swim in the sea of abundance, which flows all around you, if you are able to believe in yourself and build a crystal clear picture in your mind about all the possibility, which exists all around you.

Your Mind Does not come with a user’s Manual
Napoleon Hill once said

“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve”

Your mind is the most incredible and powerful tool available to you as you travel down the path towards the success you desire. If understood and used correctly, it will deliver literally everything you can imagine to you. All that you need to do is believe with absolute conviction that it is possible for you and then you must commit to take inspired goal specific action daily and a world of possibility opens up to you.

A great example of the power of the mind is shown in this story.
Doctors in Texas, studying the effectiveness of arthroscopic knee surgery, assigned patients with damaged, painful or worn-out knees, who agreed to participate in the test, one of three different surgical procedures. They either scraped the knee joint, just washed it out with saline or did nothing. During the procedure, where the doctors did nothing, they actually made an incision and pretended to have carried out the procedure on the patients.

Two years later the patients who never received any treatment at all, or who just had their knees washed out with saline, but believed that they had been operated on, showed exactly the same improvement as the patients, who had actually had their knees operated on. The patient’s brains expected the surgery to have helped and to have improved their condition and so it did. This process shows the existence of expectancy theory. If you really believe that you can do something, you believe it is possible and you expect it to happen, it is very likely that it will.

What do you see as possible in your future right now? It is very unlikely that you will ever exceed your own expectations about what you believe is possible for you to achieve. So if you want to begin the journey towards super achievement, it starts right now, by you allowing yourself to dream once again and to give yourself permission to have huge expectations about what is possible for you. You are truly magnificent, now it is up to you to believe it and you will finally start to achieve it. Create an expectation about what you believe is possible for you and according to the expectancy theory, your mind will eventually make it possible for you.

Dare to Dream Big

Bruce Lee was arguably one of the greatest martial artists of all time. He understood the value of dreaming big and having huge expectations. When I visited Planet Hollywood in New York City a few years ago, I saw a letter written by Bruce Lee in 1970. In the letter Bruce wrote, as follows: “By 1980 I will be the best known oriental movie star in the United States and will have secured $ 10 million dollars. In return I will give the best acting I could ever give, every single time I am in front of the cameras and I will live in peace and harmony”. Despite his life being cut short, he managed to realise all his goals in far less than the ten years he thought it would take. Are you dreaming really big dreams and taking inspired action every day to make them real for you?

It is seldom, if ever, that anyone exceeds their own belief in their potential or their own vision of possibility. You will never rise above the image you hold in your mind about what is possible for you. So in reality you can and will only ever live the vision you have of what is possible for you.

In fact the life you are living right now is exactly what you have envisioned in the past, as being possible for you. The subconscious belief and picture, which you hold in your mind right now, has shaped who you are and will continue shaping who you will become. How you see yourself or the vision you hold of your potential is exactly what will turn up in your life. Don’t you think it is time you stopped leaving this to chance and you finally made the conscious decision and put in the effort to picture the actual future you want?
