Beliefs determine our behaviors

Thursday, January 23, 2014

'Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right." Henry Ford

Siebold also says that our beliefs determine our actions.
If we think we cannot lose weight, we won't lose weight ( because we don't try hard enough.)
Why don't we try hard enough? Because we don't believe it will happen.
It becomes a self-fullfiling prophecy.

Successful people, says Siebold, expect to succeed. And most times they do!
Their behaviors follow their beliefs.

The beliefs are the cause - the behavior is the effect.

Sometimes if we do just follow a diet really well, we experience successful weight loss.
That experience then can change our beliefs.

Success brings about success.

    We gravitate toward what we do well...
Here's to dreaming and doing and the continued success we experience!

    Baby steps of success lead to bigger steps of success. "I think I can" becomes "I knew I could."

    I think you hit on something that can help me. I need to claim success before I start. Not try but do.

    Sounds a lot like another philosophy, doesn't it? The criss-cross effect of Spark People!
