We all have the power within us; it’s just that, sometimes, we are not aware that we have them or, even if we do, we’re not fully cognizant of how much power we have. We all have potential, waiting to be unleashed, so we can drive ourselves to achieve what we want and ultimately gain success.
But how do we unlock our unlimited potential? You will notice in the succeeding discussions that Tracy’s 7 Mental Laws are applied.
Develop a Positive Mental Attitude
Here, you have to work on building a positive self-concept, or the knowledge of who you are. Work on your attitude. You may not know it, but you may be letting opportunities slip past you because you have adopted a pessimistic outlook, or your attitude is that of a loser or one who refuses to even try unless it’s a sure thing.
How can you build a positive self-concept, you ask? Start by taking a good look at yourself and your actual achievements thus far. But that is not all.
Set clear and specific goals. Determine what your personal mission in life is, so you can get a sense of purpose. Write down your goals so you have something concrete to keep going back to during those times that you need to be reminded of them. You can categorize your goals accordingly including, but not limited to, the following:
Personal goals, or those with respect to your personal fulfillment and pleasure
Family goals, or those pertaining to relationships with loved ones
Career goals, or those you want to achieve in your chosen profession or field of work
Business goals, or the goals you want to fulfill with regards to your business or enterprise
Self-improvement or self-development goals, or those that will ultimately make you a better person
Devote yourself to the pursuit of excellence. Make a commitment that you will not settle for anything less than the best when it comes to both your personal and professional life. If you are going to aim for something, aim high. Aim for the top spot.
Contribute and perform. Make yourself, and your contributions, indispensable to others, so they will value you and think highly of you.
Exert effort and work hard. You reap what you sow. If you do not do invest anything, do not expect to be earning returns on your investment. Do not expect to be recognized for your hard work when you didn’t put in any. If you have a task at hand, focus on doing your best and accomplish it.
Manage your time efficiently. You have your talents, you have your abilities. But these will all go to waste if you do not use them efficiently and, to do that, you have to manage your time.
