Recently I was at Indigo and as I was leaving I saw a bunch of books that were stacked Costco style. A book caught my eye, The Dream by Gurbaksh Chahal.
Here is a brief synopsis from Amazon.
Gurbaksh Chahal started the Internet advertising company ClickAgents
from his bedroom at the age of 16, having emigrated to the United
States with his Sikh family from the small town of Tarn Taran, India.
He dropped out of high school to pursue the venture full-time, and two
years later sold ClickAgents for $40 million, making him one of the
youngest self-made millionaires in history and allowing him and his
entire family to realize their dreams. Chahal went on to become the
youngest executive of a multi-billion dollar NASDAQ-listed company, and
then sold his second company, BlueLithium, to Yahoo! for $300 million,
turning many of his employees into multi-millionaires as well.
I stayed standing in the same spot for an hour and finished reading the book. I wont say that it was phenomenally written, I can’t even say there was anything original about his approach and information.
But there was one thing that you could feel when reading the book. His incredible BELIEF in himself. He believed he could obtain his goal and he went for it. Any setbacks along the way were just short term. He had a dream and he WAS going to realize it.
Three Classics that I enjoy re-reading are:
The essence of all three books – If you can Believe and Perceive, you can achieve.
The rest is commentary.
With out a belief in yourself and your ability to reach your goals, all the tool and tips in the world wont help you.
It is a powerful belief in yourself that gives you the power to perceive the possibilities that are there for you to access and achieve that which you desire.
When I see the explosion of successes on the web, I can truly sense that belief. In the bricks and mortar world it is rare to see people doing the exact same thing right next to each other. For most it wouldn’t seem sensible. But on the web, you have dozens of people selling the exact same products in almost the exact same way. And they are making money.
Some try and say “This doesn’t work, there are already to many of the same online. It’s saturated.”
But the ones who are succeeding Believe in themselves and their ability to succeed. They think “If its working for others, I believe I can make it work for myself as well.”
I could be wrong and maybe I am just the greatest and most well know coach on the planet, and that is why you are here on my originally designed blog, reading a post by a master writer. What do you think?
A negative belief in yourself can cripple you and your chances of success.
A positive belief can send you soaring to levels of personal an professional success that you always dreamed of.
In Coaching I work with you to discover what your beliefs are, what your “Inner Critic” is playing in your head. You become aware ofÃ‚Â the beliefs that are holding you back and through awareness of your strength you create and empower the beliefs that can lead you on the path to success.
What beliefs to you hold about yourself now?
How do these beliefs hinder or support your success?
What would full belief in yourself look like?
What would full belief in yourself feel like?
What is the next step for you?
