How do you think you will do this year?
Do you think you’ll be fine or you go wrong?
Do you believe you can or you cannot achieve your goals?
Do you believe you can or you cannot heal the disease that ails you?
Do you believe you can or you cannot overcome the problems you have?
Do you believe you can or you cannot get along with your partner? With your parents? With your children? With your neighbors?
The answer is simply what you believe at this moment will be.
If you believe that so will be you succeeding.
If you believe that do not succeed then it will not.
We received what we believe!
Not always get what we deserve in life, but usually do not get more than you expect, we receive what we believe.
And you know what? Unfortunately, this principle works with equal force to both the negative and positive.
We get just what we believe!
As the case of Nick Sitzman, who worked in a railway company for many years. He was a good worker, reliable and get along with his other co-workers. But he had a major flaw. It was a very negative person who always feared the worst and constantly worried and disturbed that something bad might happen. A day like any other, Nick entered one of refrigerated wagons. When he closed the door, tries to open it from the inside and could not. He was trapped inside the wagon refrigerator. He started screaming with all his strength for someone to open, but there was not a person close to hear their desperate cries for help. He sat on the floor of the wagon and surrendered to the cold and began to freeze. The next day they entered the wagon refrigerator, they found him dead. They realized that with a knife on the floor had written: “It is so cold that my body freezes, if only I could sleep.” The autopsy confirmed dead body by freezing. The amazing thing about this story is that the wagon refrigerator was off and the lowest temperature that night was 13 degrees Celsius (57 degrees Fahrenheit). Nick thought the refrigerator was on and it was his own belief, thinking about that he was freezing, it that ended killing him. It happened to Nick what he feared and expected.
Today there are many people like Nick, who are always expecting the worst, expect the defeat, the mediocrity, and almost always get what they expect, they become what they believe. In this case it was a negative belief.
In a study published by the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, was investigated in patients with severe debilitating pain in the knee. Patients were divided into three groups. The first group was operated by cutting damaged cartilage in the knee. The second group will only clean the joint cartilage and reduced inflammation. The third group, called the placebo group, only opened the knee and the whole procedure was simulated operation as though becoming really. (Placebo is defined as a substance which has no curative action but which produces a therapeutic effect if the patient believes that making a medicine really effective).
In this third group the patients believed that they had been operated successfully, but the truth is that they had just opened and closed the knee. In other words, they had performed a sham operation. The study found that the first and second group operated improved. But the surprising thing was that the third group, the so-called placebo group improved in the same proportion as the other two. We tracked over time (up to two years later), and these people could play sports with the same intensity as the other.
They were cured by having the belief that had been operated successfully. In this case it was a positive belief. What you believe has a much greater impact on your life than what someone else believes.
The following story happened to East Los Angeles, Garfield High School, which was one of the worst and one of the country’s poorest suburbs. Students were not interested and teachers had lost all hopes. But Jaime Escalante, a new math teacher, had a growth mindset. He believed that no matter what skills people have, if they tried hard, they could learn and grow and even excel. His story was so incredible that it became a movie called “Stand and Deliver” about his case. Escalante raised the level of mathematics students from a basic level to university level. The school went from being one of the worst in math to be one of the best places in the national ranking. Students of Professor Escalante obtained so good academic performance in math tests, which gained university educational credits.
In this case, Professor Escalante believed in the capacity of their students. As he said in Spanish: “You can succeed if you have “GANAS”. Mean: you can be successful if you have the desire, discipline and determination. Simply Escalante made to believe their students to believe in themselves. And so it was. His students began to believe in themselves and achieve their goal. Most students graduated from college as Thomas Valdez who now works for NASA, as well as Erika Camacho earned a master calculus, and now teaches at Arizona State University. (See video above).
According to the researcher Carol Dweck, author of the book Mindset, there are two types of belief: Belief limiting and empowering beliefs.
Please before continuing to read, say, whether you agree (A) or disagree (D) with each of the following statements by researcher Dweck:
1. ______ Intelligence is a trait inherent to each individual and cannot be changed much.
2. ______ Each one can learn new things, but you cannot really change how intelligent is each individual.
3. ______ Each one is a type of person and you cannot do much to change.
4. ______ Each one can do different things, but the important aspects of a person cannot be changed.
5. ______ No matter how much intelligence has each one, but each one has the ability to increase significantly.
6. ______ Each one can change how smart is such a way substantial.
7. ______ No matter what kind of person each one is, each person can change substantially.
8. ______ Each one could always change the fundamental aspects about the person we are.
If you are more in agreement with the first four statements, your belief is limiting, meaning that their qualities are fixed, are set in stone and cannot grow. According Dweek, people who have such beliefs are people with fixed beliefs.
If you are more in agreement with the statements of 5 to 8, then you have a growth mindset or belief empowering. Then your qualities can grow and can grow through effort.
As you can see in the investigations, our beliefs govern our behavior.
Can you easily change these beliefs? According to Dweck, only becoming aware of our position on the topic already helps us to change. If I realize that I have beliefs related to the fixed mindset, then it would be best to try to be aware of how these beliefs affect my life.
Believe in good things in your life.
Wake up every morning saying, “Today is the best day of my life” and it is.
Good vibrations will attract into your life. Even when facing the most difficult times in your job, in your business, in your health, please don’t have expectation of staying there. Keep the expectation to get out of that problem. Look at the problem as a challenge as a chance to experience positively, as an opportunity to grow spiritually.
If you go through difficult times in your marriage, do not get frustrated or give up saying: “I knew from the beginning that this marriage would not work.” If you give up, you are doing what Nick did in the wagon refrigerator. Your hopes so low will destroy your marriage. Your wrong way of thinking will tear down. You need to change the way you think and what you are expecting. Stop waiting for failure and start growing you will succeed.
Even whether your life is a disaster, there’s a positive side. Like the saying goes, “Every cloud has a silver lining.”
If you decide to keep your focus on the negative things in your life, whether your focus is about what you cannot do and not on what you can do, then you are allowing of their own accord be defeated.
But if you keep your focus on the positive things in life, their faith may be that doeth in a supernatural way in your life. Your faith, your belief in yourself will help you overcome the obstacles and allow you to reach new levels of victory. Remember that depends on the way you see things in negative or positive way in your life. If you think your life negatively attract negative things. If you think your life positively attract positive things.
So, do you think you’ll be fine or you will go badly in your life?
