Your philosophy determines success
A PHILOSOPHY is any personal belief about how to live or how to deal with a situation. This belief is created by any kind of exposure. It can be changed or improved. Human beings have the power of choice, they choose what to believe, how to live or respond to any situation.
Our lives are the sum total of our choices. You are who you are today because of the choices you made yesterday and your tomorrow depends on your choices today. If you want to change your tomorrow, you first need to change the way you do things today (PHILOSOPHY).
You cannot make right choices having wrong information, for your philosophy depends on what you know. My mentor, Mr Moloi always says “Situations have no meaning; you are the one that give them meaning.
You can only explain what you know; our reasoning faculty uses the database stored in our knowledge base to make interpretations. As a matter of fact, make it your mandate to gather the right information for your success.
Your philosophy is your view of life, something beyond feelings and attitudes. Your philosophy drives your attitudes and feelings, which drive your actions.
The law of nature is, Do the thing, and you shall have the power: but they who do not the thing have not the power. — Ralph Waldo Emerson, Compensation (Essays: First Series, 1841)
Simply put, the statement is saying “don’t wait; do something, even if you don’t have enough resources, your progress will bring you means.” Do not hesitate or waver for fear that when you come to any certain place you will fail for lack of ability.
Keep right on, and when you come to that place, the ability will be furnished to you. The same source of ability which enabled the uneducated Lincoln to do the greatest work in government ever accomplished by a single man is open to you.
You may draw upon all the mind there is for wisdom to use in meet- ing the responsibilities which are laid upon you. Go on in full faith.
This philosophy has driven so many business men we know today, had they waited to have resources, they could have not started.
If you want to be in business and have no capital, go on, capital will find you on the way. If you want to achieve a certain dream and you see that you don’t have enough resources, just take a step of faith and see how much you can accomplish.
Robert J. Ringer said, “Success is not dependent upon one’s being blessed with superior intelligence or special skills, nor does formal education, hard work, or luck play a major role in an individual’s climb towards success... the difference between success and failure is not nearly as great as most people believe...success is a matter of un- derstanding and religiously practicing specific, simple habits that always leads to success.”
Jeff Olsen says the secret ingredient to success is your philosophy. Focusing on the actions (the what-to-do’s and the how-to-do it’s) is not enough, because it’s the attitude behind the actions that keeps those actions in place. So, is the attitude adjustment the answer? No, that won’t necessarily do it either.
Your emotions change. You can’t dictate how you feel. No matter how much you may tell yourself to feel positive about this how-to step or that how-to step, what if you just don’t? Today, you’re excited about getting it right.
You feel like doing your twenty minutes workouts, you feel like calling all your clients. Great! But what if tomorrow you just don’t feel like doing it? To find the path to success, you have to back up one more step. It’s the understanding behind the attitudes that are behind the actions (Philosophy).
