Paradigm Shifting: The Power of Positive Thinking

Success starts with the right state of mind! Christopher Columbus knew it. Thomas Edison lived it. Michael Dell and Bill Gates believe it. And Marcus Aurelius said it, “Our life is what our thoughts make of it… A man’s true greatness lies in the consciousness of an honest purpose in life, founded on a just estimate of himself… ”

You may ask why this is so. The formula for this is quite simple.

  1. What you believe, you act on. Action begins with and is instigated by belief. You can not act on something that you do not, at some level, believe in. Whether you are in support of, or in opposition to a particular idea or ideal, that position is held firm by your belief.
  2. What you act on, you manifest. Any action you take results in a consequence. Every action in the universe is met with and equal reaction. Whether you are starting a conversation with a stranger, trying to learn new things, or simply looking at the food in your pantry, any action you take regarding these things will result in a tangible “re-action”. Perhaps it will be a new friendship. Perhaps it will be deeper knowledge achieved through your research. Perhaps it will simply be dinner!
  3. Thus what you manifest creates your reality. This is your personal paradigm.

The only variable in this process is the strength and duration of your belief. If your belief is not strong, if it is weak or vacillating, then you are not likely to act on it. If you do not act on it, then you can not manifest it and it can not become part of your reality.

This is quite difficult for most people to comprehend, and even more difficult to implement. We have a tendency to repeat old mistakes and resist change, although we know deep down inside that change is inevitable. Nothing stays the same forever. There is an old saying that defines insanity as the expectation that acting, in the same way, will produce different results.

People who are successful and happy are people who have mastered the art of change. They are not afraid to revisit their prior actions and approach their goal differently. They consciously decide to not act in the same way and are not afraid to move out of their comfort zones. They understand that in order for growth to occur, they must have the courage to live outside their comfort zones.

Having a definitive, crystalline goal is the first step in forming a personal paradigm. You MUST be able to visualize the outcome of your goal or the end-product. It must be a singular achievement that you are passionate about.

Christopher Columbus knew that he could sail west and not fall off a flat planet. He hoped to find India. He happened to stumble into America, but nonetheless, he sailed west and lived to tell about it!

Thomas Edison knew he could create a practical incandescent lightbulb. He tested over 3000 filaments before he found one that worked, but he did it, and he revolutionised the world!

Michael Dell knew that he could overtake the computer behemoth IBM, and look at him now. Bill Gates knew that eventually “every home will have a personal computer.”

Goals, such as these, are not achieved overnight. All worthwhile achievements take time. So you must be patient, consistent, and persistent in your effort. You must have the faith in your goals in order to fuel your desire to succeed.

By knowing this truth, you can begin to shape and mould your reality by taking steps, every day, to create a crystalline vision of what you want your reality to be. Be prepared, however, because this is not easy. It takes work. It takes courage. And, most of all, it takes persistence so that you can put aside all thoughts of and encounters with failure. In time you will come to view failure as an opportunity or an obstacle to overcome, but not an end in and of itself.

Once you have formed your vision; once you have set your crystalline goal as a fixture into your thoughts, you will begin to take action toward your goal. It is inevitable. All action will be instigated by your belief. Further, what you act on, you manifest. Therefore, you will soon find yourself attracting opportunities, ideas, solutions, and people who can and will propel you toward achieving your goals.

Success is no secret that is available only to an elite few. It is available to everyone, all the time. It is the certainty of the power that you possess – the power of your own beliefs to create and manifest your own personal paradigm; you success paradigm.

So what’s is your paradigm? What Do You Believe?
