One of the first words a child learns, in any language and culture, is the word that means “NO”
Then… there we are. We grow up and we hate people talking to us and saying something that sounds like: “No… sorry”, or “You are not good enough for this task”, or “You’re not going to make it…”
We hate feeling rejected. Rejection in general, has the meaning of a more complex “NO” that we perceive with our six senses…
Let me tell you something… We believe that we’re not good enough in certain areas and we believe that people think of us the same.
Some of you might think that: “Really?! I have been told that I am not good enough by certain people and I’m not just imagining that they think that way about me!”
Well, I have to agree with you in that. But think about this for a second; I believe though, that since we want to be right in how we consider ourselves, we are expecting others to confirm our belief.
We’re manifesting those kinds of people around us, the people that are in synchronicity with our subconscious patterns.
We cannot believe that we’re attracting people that “tell us” that we’re right about how we feel about ourselves!
And there they are!
To shift to different people and start attracting those that will encourage you and help you, you need to set a goal that is far beyond your beliefs about your capabilities.
A Goal (a dream), followed by a plan, followed by persistence.
You don’t need to be intelligent, cultured, expert, capable. Just a dream and the first step. The first belief you need is: I believe in my ability to figure things out.
And also remember… a “NO” is a “no” less to the “YES”
Here it is something that I didn’t write… I wasn’t born yet.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan “Press On” has solved and will always solve the problems of the human race.”
