‘There isn't a person anywhere who isn't capable of doing more than he thinks he can’ Henry Ford
Is it possible to do more than you think you can? In a word – no! Do I mean to disagree with Henry Ford on this one? Well, no to that too!
It’s all about belief. You have change your thinking... this is where the coaching really takes on a huge importance. Coaching is a means of accessing your inner confidence and assessing your strengths, so that you can open up new beliefs that allow for new thinking. You see, you need to think you can in order to move beyond your perceived limitations. You have to be willing to accept the possibility that you are capable of achieving more. Now you think you can – and so you will achieve! You can think yourself into or out of success – and you have to have a strong belief that can.
Do you think that you can? Do you believe you have what it takes? Do you realise that your thinking makes all the difference?
Another of Ford’s quotes supports this strongly; he says ‘if you think you can, and if you think you can’t - you’re right!’ Why? When you think you can you will try, and keep on trying because you believe you can succeed. Because you think you can you will persevere until you get the success you really want. Is it that simple? Is it all about your thought life? Yes! But is it easy – well no, of course not!! But it is right and it is so important – your success depends on it.
You are capable of doing so much more than you currently think you can – so change your thinking and start achieving more. Take some time with your journal and write down your thoughts that hold you back. Find a way of reframing each thought around a positive belief. Let this be the focus of your new thinking.
Will you take time to get your thinking right today? Will you choose to believe that you can? Will you take control of your thoughts so they work for you and not against you?
When will you start to believe you can?
