1
Believe In “I”
 Success does not require a super-
intellect.
 Success isn’t based on luck.
Believe you can succeed and you will
Success is determined by the size of one’s thinking: people who
think big grow big.
Strong belief triggers the mind to figuring ways and means to
achieve it.
A person is a product of his own thoughts.
Believe you can succeed and you will
 Think success, don’t think failure.
 Believe you can succeed and you will.
 Remind yourself regularly that you are better than
you think you are.
 Believe big: The size of your success is determined
by the size of your belief.
 Never sell yourself short.
20
Believe You Can Succeed and You Will
• Defeat Disbelief and the
Negative Power It Creates

Believe You Can Succeed and You Will
• Make Your Mind Produce Positive
Thoughts
“But You’ve Got to Have Brains to Succeed.”

never overestimate the intelligence of others
 My attitudes are more important
 Use your mind to create and develop ideas, to
find new and better ways to do things

CURE YOURSELF OF EXCUSITIS, THE
FAILURE DISEASE
“But My Health Isn’t Good.”
Be genuinely grateful that your health is as good as it is.
Remind yourself often, “It’s better to wear out than rust out”.
“It’s No Use. I’m Too Old (or Too
Young).”
 Think, “I’m still young,” not “I’m already old”.
 Compute productive time you have left.
 Life is actually longer than most people think!
 Invest future time in doing what you really want to do.
 Instead think, “I’m going to start now, my best years are ahead
of me”
“But My Case Is Different; I Attract Bad Luck
 Accept the law of cause and effect.
 Not luck but preparation, planning, and success-
producing thinking preceded his good fortune.
 Don’t be a wishful thinker.
 Don’t waste your mental muscles dreaming of an
effortless way to win success.
“But My Case Is Different; I Attract Bad Luck
 Don’t count on luck for promotions, victories, the
good things in life.
 Luck simply isn’t designed to deliver these good
things.
Cure yourself of excuses: the failure disease
The thinking that guides your intelligence is much more
important than how much intelligence you may have.
Cure yourself of excuses: the failure disease
 Don’t sell yourself short.
 Concentrate on developing those qualities in
yourself that will make you a winner.
 Concentrate on your assets.

Ask yourself, “What is my greatest weakness?”.
Probably the greatest is Self-depreciation.
Exercise to measure your true size

intelligent person who will give you an honest opinion.
 Next, under each asset, write the name of three persons you
know who have achieved large success but who do not have
this asset to as great a s degree as you.
When you are done with this exercise, you will find you have
outranked many successful people on at least one asset.
There is only one conclusionThere is only one conclusion

think.think.
Where success is concerned, people are not measured in pounds,
college degrees, or family background; they are always measured
by the size of their thinking.
Misconception about thinking big!
we think only in pictures/images.
If you convey a group of people that, “I’m sorry to report we have
failed”. Now people only see defeat and disappointment that the
word, “failed” conveys.
Instead if you would have conveyed that, “Here’s a new approach
that I think will work.”, they would feel encouraged, and be ready
to try again.
