“Formulate and stamp indelibly on your mind a mental picture of yourself as succeeding. Hold this picture tenaciously. Never permit it to fade. Your mind will seek to develop the picture…Do not build up obstacles in your imagination.” Norman Vincent Peale
What this quote means is that to succeed, you need to see yourself succeeding in your mind. Always have it in your mind that you will succeed, always remember it, and remove any doubts or roadblocks to your success.
Doubt is what kills many peoples dreams. The most successful people never doubted themselves, and knew they would one day succeed in reaching their goals.
Knowing you will succeed and removing all doubt from your mind is half the battle. Once you are able to do that, you’ll start finding yourself in the right places, at the right times. This is why less talented people are able to go further than many with talent: they do not doubt themselves, and see themselves succeeding in their mind.
