The Power Of Belief


I want to talk about programming and try to explain why it is that we feel it’s difficult to believe that we can become anything we desire and believe in.

Do you know how an Elephant is trained not to run away?  It’s really very simple, when the Elephant is only a baby and not very strong, it’s tied to a stake in the ground using a rope and the baby Elephant tries it’s hardest to get  away, but haven’t got enough power to do so.

Slowly over a period of time, the baby Elephant grows tired of trying and eventually gives in to the fact that it can’t break the rope and get away.

This is why that later when the baby Elephant is fully grown and extremely powerful it never tries to break the rope or pull out the little stake that control is freedom.

The belief is so ingrown by this time that it never even tries to get away, it has learned to accept the “reality” that it can never escape.

Do you see how you too, could also have beliefs that you have picked up maybe from your parents, who in turn have picked it up from their parent, that stops you from doing something you have always wanting to do?


Don’t let yourself make excuses for not doing the things you want to do.

Sam Altman


If you don’t want to do something, one excuse is as good as another.

Yiddish Proverb



So can you see, any excuse will work if you don’t want to do something, but if you really want to do something, all you need to do is to start doing something in the right direction.

When you become serious about doing something, you are not alone, the whole Universe will conspire to assist you when you decide to focus on a specific project or result.

Let’s say that what you want is more money ok? Running around telling everyone that you are poor and have no money isn’t going to help you much, do you agree? People say this, to offer an excuse for not having the courage to actually do something or to gain acceptance with other people.

So at least if you are wanting to do something, agree to stop the negative thinking and the mindless clutter and give yourself a chance by believing in your ability to do something. Keep saying to yourself “I can do this”

Then support your dream and maintain your focus, by getting magazines, picture or photo’s about what you want, to remind yourself everyday about why you are doing this and see yourself having whatever it is that you want.

“Energy Flows Where Attention Goes”, is a famous saying that describe that what your mind is thinking about is what you will end up attracting into your own reality.

Just be like a little child, a child have no concept of dis-belief, they see something they really love and they will “dream” about it every day without any problems. They will talk about, play it out in their mind, sometimes even aloud and make it as real as possible.

That is the true and natural way to manifest something you desire to have. We have all tried  falling in love, what happens? You can’t think of anything else, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. Right? It is an all-consuming, powerful emotion that can only be satisfied by the outcome you were determined to have.

If you think you are right or if your think you are wrong, you get to be right either way.
