Think about all the things you want to achieve in your life. All your goals, all your hopes and dreams. Do they appear unachievable to you?
What if I told you that you are only one step away from success?
Everything you need to achieve your goals is inside your mind. As long as you can see yourself succeeding in your mind there is nothing that can stop you in reality.
Visualization is a powerful technique used by almost every successful person in history. It is the most important step you need to take if you ever want to achieve what you are dreaming of. If you simply can not stop thinking about your goal it means you are ready to achieve it.
Captain America saw himself as a soldier long before he got his hands on the super soldier serum. Because he already achieved his goal in his mind he was very determined to make this thought dominating his mind his reality.
There is no reason why you, fellow superhero, shouldn´t be able to achieve the same. Your brain is a problem solving machine. If you confront it with a problem or challenge day in and day out it eventually will find a solution. It may take years or decades of visualization but as long as your goal is attainable you will achieve it.
You will start to notice potential solutions to your problem in your day to day life. These solutions have always been there but because your brain is now programmed to solve a specific problem you will notice these opportunities for the first time. Your mind is all you need to succeed.
Once you identified potential solutions take the first step. That will bring you closer to the solution of your problem than you ever were before. If you haven´t reached your goal yet take another step. And another. And another.
You probably think that´s a lot of steps. But how do you know you are not only one tiny step away from success? You don´t. You have to take another step to find out. And after that you still can´t be sure you´re not one step away. That´s why you keep taking steps.
After a while you will gain momentum and everything will become much easier. Working towards your goals won´t feel like working anymore, it just becomes second nature to you. You remind yourself that you are only one step away from success.
Maybe you become discouraged during your journey. But if you give up you will never know if you weren´t just one step away from success. The “what if” will haunt you for the rest of your life. Giving up is not an option for a superhero.
If Iron Man gave up before inventing a new element for his arc reactor he would have died. He took all the steps necessary to succeed.
You need to develop a strong mind to achieve success, be it money, fitness or better relationships. But I promise you that you will regret giving up because you´ll never know if you´re not only one step away from success.
Be strong and keep going, fellow superhero! Success will come to those who are patient and never give up!
