The Determinant of Your Success
by: Brian Tracy

Perhaps the most powerful single factor in your success is your beliefs about yourself and money. We call this the Law of Belief. It says simply this: Whatever you believe, with feeling, becomes your reality.

What Successful People Believe
Whatever you intensely believe becomes your reality. That we have a tendency to block out any information coming in to us that is inconsistent with our reality. What we've discovered is that successful people absolutely believe that they have the ability to succeed. And they will not entertain, think about, or talk about the possibilities that they'll fail. They do not even consider the possibility of failure.

Positive Thinking Versus Positive Knowing
You always act in a matter consistent with your beliefs. The most important belief system you can build is a prosperity consciousness where you absolutely believe that you are going achieve your financial goals. We call this positive knowing versus positive thinking. Positive thinking can sometimes be wishing or hoping. But positive knowing is when you absolutely know that no matter what, you will be successful.

The Foundation of Willpower
Another principle related to your beliefs is willpower. We know that willpower is essential to any success. Willpower is based on confidence. It's based on conviction. It's based on faith. It's based on your belief in your ability to triumph over all obstacles. And you can develop willpower by persistence, by working on your goals, by reading the biographies of successful people, by listening to audio programs, by reading books about people who've achieved success. The more information you take into your mind consistent with success, the more likely it is that you will develop the willpower to push you through the obstacles and difficulties you will experience.

Beat The Odds on Success
Remember that success is rare. Only one person in one hundred becomes wealthy in the course of a lifetime. Only five percent achieve financial independence. That means that the odds against you are 19-to-1. The only way that you're going to achieve your financial goals is if you get really serious. To succeed, you must get serious. You must get busy. You must get active. You must get going. Remember, everything counts.

Resolve To Achieve Greatly
Self-mastery, self-control, self-discipline are essential for anyone who wants to achieve greatly. And control over your thoughts is the hardest exercise in self-mastery that you will ever engage in. See if you can talk and think about only what you desire and not talk or think about anything that you don't want for 24 hours. Then you'll see what you're really made of. It's a hard thing to do but with practice, you can reach the point where you are thinking about your goals and desires most of the time. Then, your whole life will change for the better

Action Exercises
Here are two things you can do to build a belief system consistent with the financial success you desire:

First, continually repeat to yourself the words, pictures and thoughts consistent with your dreams and goals. Whatever you repeat often enough, over and over, becomes a new belief.

Second, set a goal for yourself to think and talk only about the things that you want for the next 24 hours. This will be one of the hardest things you ever do. But if you can keep your mind on what you want and off of what you don't want for 24 hours, you can begin to change your entire future.

Walking is the oldest mode of transportation — after all, humans have been doing it for more than 1.5 million years. It's also the cheapest, easiest form of aerobic exercise: All you have to do is open your front door, step outside and get moving. Other pluses: Walking is a great way to relieve tension. And because it's relatively gentle on the joints, people who have had to give up running or other intense sports can turn to walking for their fitness fix.

Starting Out
Forget what you learned as a toddler: You need to relearn how to walk. Being able to hit a 12-minute-mile pace is what separates Sunday strollers from serious walkers. Here's what's involved in good race walking technique:

Walk tall, bend your arms at roughly a 90-degree angle and pump them quickly back and forth, not across your body. Curl your hands into loose fists. Take short, quick steps rather than long strides. Land on your heels and roll forward smoothly, pushing off with your toes. "Think of having rocking feet," suggests Bonnie Stein, a Tampa Bay-area instructor who has taught more than 7,000 people how to race walk.

Target areas:

Walking strengthens the hips, gluteus muscles, quadriceps and hamstrings. At speedier paces, when your heart rate is elevated, you can burn more calories than you might realize as well as improve your endurance. Research suggests that walking can reduce your risk for heart disease and may lower high blood pressure. In fact, a recent study indicates that walking two or more miles a day helped elderly men live longer. Since walking is a weight-bearing activity, it also reduces your risk for osteoporosis.

The Warm-Up and Cool-Down
Since walking is a relatively gentle activity, all you have to do is start. It takes five to 10 minutes to warm up your muscles, get the heart rate elevated and break a sweat (a sign that you're ready to speed up).

Before you end your walk, slow down your pace to allow your heart rate to descend gradually. Be sure to stretch the following major muscle groups after you warm up to prevent injury and again after exercising to promote flexibility and prevent soreness.

Use Your Breath To Relax Your Body

"Breath is the link between the inner and outer worlds."

-- Alice Christensen

We live in very demanding times, and our health depends on our being able to relieve our bodies and minds from constant stress. Breathing with awareness can focus and concentrate our attention inside. This slows down our pace and eases the pressure, anxiety, anticipation and excitement that are common stress reactions.

At any time, you can consciously experience your breathing to help you concentrate your mind and relax your body. Compare how you feel after your session with how you felt before. Write about your experience in your journal.

"Controlled deep breathing helps the body to transform the air we breathe into energy. The stream of energized air produced by properly executed and controlled deep breathing produces a current of inner energy which radiates throughout the entire body and can be channeled to the body areas that need it the most, on demand."

-- Nancy Zi
