Believe and Achieve
Posted by Orrin Woodward on January 8, 2013
Chris Brady states that fast can start at anytime. I know that to be true because it happened in our business. Belief is the key that drives growth and change. For me, I worked diligently, learning the fundamentals, but didn’t believe myself capable of building a multi-million dollar business. Indeed, my lack of belief was the limiting factor from producing the results I wanted. Eventually, I learned that just as important as hard work is belief work. One, in other words, must invest just as much effort in believing big as working big! If a person doesn’t work hard towards his dream, then he has no right to expect great results; however, even when a person does work hard, if he doesn’t also believe, then he doesn’t have the right to accomplish great things because he doesn’t believe it. Simply stated, since he doesn’t believe his own dream, how could others rally to his cause?
The next time you set goals to move ahead in any field, invest as much time believing as working. I visualize businesses exploding, talks reaching the audience, and leaders buying into the mission, mainly because I believe the business will explode, the talks will reach the people, and leaders would be crazy not to buy into our mission! That simple principle has made all the difference to me. If I am going to write a book then I am going to believe great things will result. If I am going to work with a person, then I am going to believe in the greatness inside of them. If I am going to work on a project, then I am going to believe it will change the world. This is why I believe and work so much within the LIFE Business. The LIFE Founders are some of the best leaders in the world and it is my responsibility to reveal their greatness in arenas across the world!
Belief is essential for success. For instance, when Chris and I wrote Launching a Leadership Revolution, I believed great things for it and God blessed that belief with recognition as a New York Times Bestseller! When I wrote RESOLVED: 13 Resolutions for LIFE, I believed that book would have an impact across the world. Remarkably, the book recently made the All-Time Top 100 Leadership Book List and is the core guidebook through the Mental Fitness Challenge. Likewise, when we launched the LIFE Business, we didn’t just start another community building business. Instead, we launched a world-changing mission of love, hope and transformation through the renewing of a person’s mind. The first year results are nothing short of mind boggling! Now, with the release of LeaderShift, I am dreaming and believing a future bigger than ever! So big, in fact, that I cannot wait for the RT meeting on Thursday nights to share my belief and vision for LIFE.
In summary, I have learned over the years, that the best thing to do when others criticize, minimize, and ostracize, is to dream bigger, do bigger, and deliver bigger than ever before. Every achiever I know majors on dreams, while every non-achiever I know majors on dramas. Which course of study are you mastering? As for me and my family, 2013 is about dreaming, doing, and delivering on a bigger scale than ever before. Is anyone else ready to believe and achieve in 2013?
