Success and belief

Success and believing in yourself

In my previous article Why experts are wrong i explained how the more experienced a person becomes the more he becomes biased towards his past experiences.

Many experts lost creativity as a result of always trying to prove themselves right and as a result of interpreting all the events they encounter according to their own existing beliefs without putting other possibilities in mind.

Many of those experts become stuck doing what they always used to do because of believing that no other method will work.

You might be wondering what does this has to do with your success or with believing in yourself, In fact you are an expert too but your field of expertize is in believing that you can't succeed!

Past experience, the belief system and success

Just like those experts you have collected a lot of information about success and you started to believe that they are right.

In such a case you don't collect new data then assess whether the beliefs you have are correct or not but you just collect the data that supports your biased beliefs about success and ignore all other data.

You become an expert as well and you learned how to only see the data that matches your existing beliefs while ignoring everything else.

A friend of mine strongly believes that success is all about being lucky. This friend of mine has became an expert at this subject in such a way that he believes that no man ever succeeded without being lucky.

When you become an expert, by believing in something, you fail to see anything but it and as a result you become an even better expert.

The real problem happens when you become an expert at the wrong thing! My friend's expert knowledge prevented him from noticing real life cases where people succeeded without being lucky and while everything was against them. (see Inspirational stories of successful and famous people)

Success is all about believing in yourself

Years ago when i believed that i will succeed one day but i came across many of those know it all experts who told me that in order for me to succeed i have to leave Egypt.

The belief has became so powerful in their minds in such a way that they talked with tremendous confidence while telling me that no one can start from scratch.

I decided to believe in myself and to ignore their advice then few years later they were surprised to know that i became a dot com millionaire. (see Ultimate guide to becoming rich & my book How i did it)

When you believe in something you become biased towards the evidence that supports it and you always ignore the data that goes against it.

If you want to succeed in life then you must start by believing in yourself.
Your belief in yourself will help you see reality in a different way
You will collect information that will support your positive beliefs about life
and you will create a new positive reality as a result.

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
