Believe it can be done
Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.
Eliminate the words like ‘impossible,” “won’t work,”” can’t do,” no use trying” from your thinking and speaking vocabularies.
Don’t let tradition paralyze your mind. Be receptive to new ideas. Be experimental. Try approaches. Be progressive in everything you do.
Ask yourself daily, “how can I do better?” there is no limit to self-improvement. When you ask yourself, “how can I do better?” sound answers will appear. Try it and see.
Enquire yourself, “how can I do more?” capability is a state of mind. Querying yourself these questions lays your mind to work to discover intelligent short-cuts. The success code in business is: Do what you do better (develop the quality of your output), and do more of what you do (upturn the quantity of your output)
practise asking and listening. Ask and listen and you will acquire raw material for reaching sound decisions. Remember: big people monopolize the listening; small people monopolize the talking.
Expand your mind
Stretch your mind. Get stimulated. Associate with people who can help you to think of new ideas, new ways of doing things. Mix with people of different occupational and social interests.
