“I always knew I was going to be rich.
I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute.”
This is one of my favorite quotes from Warren Buffett. Why? Because it shows the confidence, unwavering belief, and commitment to an idea that he possessed. As you most likely know Warren is now one of the richest people in the world, but it all started in his mind and with his unwavering belief. He knew he’d be rich and it was that simple, there wasn’t anyone who could tell him otherwise. What have you always known?
An unwavering belief is what sets apart the “crazy” from the normal. The crazy are the ones who dream, who strive, and who challenge themselves everyday to work towards making their visions a reality. They take the road less traveled, take the leap, and blindly follow their instincts. To those who follow the straight and narrow, they are out of their minds.
Much like a car needs gas to drive down the street, you need an unwavering belief to persist towards your goals and provide fuel for your inner fire. Without this belief the car will swerve off the road and you’ll head in the wrong direction, away from your goals, away from your dreams, and away from your purpose. You’ll get stuck in the traffic jam of life.
What Unwavering Beliefs do you Have?
Can you say with 100% certainty that something will happen in your life? Will you meet your investment goals for the year, will you hit your fitness goals, will you build that successful business, will you follow your dreams, will you buy a one way ticket to change your life?
Many of our biggest obstacles are in our own minds. I’m not stranger to this and deal with it quite often myself. Is this blog good enough? Why would people ever want to read what I have to say? Who am I to build a site about Waikiki? These are just a few questions that occasionally cross my mind. It gets tiring to think like this and shows I need to continue to work on myself, but the best way to continue down the path is to work through it and get back into the zone where I forget about all the what ifs and focus on believing it’s possible.
If you learn to have an unwavering belief you will be able to accomplish your goals and you will be a success at whatever it is you’re shooting for. How do you learn this? By reaffirming everyday that you’re good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it people like you! (if you can tell me where that quote came from I’ll backlink to you on Friday’s roundup 🙂 ). It’s not something you’re going to learn by simply reading this post, but by each day stepping towards your goals, reaffirming your beliefs, and taking action. Each step will concrete your belief just a little bit more as it becomes a reality. If you need someone to tell you you’re good enough, shoot me an email.
We’re all the same really, but those of us who have unwavering beliefs will win, because we constantly persist towards our goals as we believe they are possible. The world is just waiting for you to stand up and follow your unwavering beliefs. Take a lesson from Warren, and simply know that something will happen in your life.
