What is the primary key to progressive realization of a worthwhile goal?
The answer is very simple: SUSTAINED BELIEF
I get started because I believe I will see the results -- lose the weight, earn the bonus, build the garden box, launch the new business, take the trip...
But how do I hang in there through the distractions, scheduling mazes, and energy dips until the results show up?
I have to KEEP BELIEVING that it’s possible. I don’t know about you, but for me -- I have to self-administer regular injections of belief.
To use another metaphor: I have to make sure my belief-foundation can support the structure even in strong winds. And the taller the building -- the more ambitious the endeavor, the stronger the foundation of belief I need to lay down.
If my endeavor is a sunflower border on my path, the belief required is minimal and short-lived. If dropping a jean size is my goal, my belief in the desired outcome has to be burrito-resistant over several weeks.
Financial invincibility and making a difference? That’s a skyscraper, and my foundation needs to be heavily reinforced.
