How To Position Yourself For Success

Do you know how to position yourself for success in reaching your goals?

This is a follow-up to my last post about the fickleness of my results working with law of attraction. In that post, I mentioned the importance of taking action to demonstrate to the universe that you are preparing to receive what you've set out as your intention.

In his power principle recording on action, Bob Proctor says that faith without action is useless. You can believe your goal will come, but in the absence of taking inspired action steps towards the goal, it's not going to come to you.

If you intend to live a life of inspired abundance, then there are action steps to be taken to attract that abundance towards you.

Bob Proctor also explains that your attitude towards your goal is the composite of your thoughts, feelings, and actions regarding it. And your attitude will either be positive or negative.

If you have a positive attitude, then you will be positioning yourself for success. If your attitude is negative, then you will be positioning yourself for failure.

Simple, isn't it?

Another thought occurs to me though -- your actions are a direct reflection of your belief.

So, if you are not taking the steps available to best position yourself for success, then you don't believe you will have the success ... or you don't believe you deserve it.

Do You Believe You Can?

Revisiting our law of attraction: are your results fickle? example of the new home business network marketing entrepreneur, if you choose not to make the investment to position yourself most favorably within the compensation plan (to maximize your profits the soonest), then your lack of action clearly reflects a lack of belief in your ability to earn those profits.

The good news is that your actions are a direct reflection of your belief.

So, if you are confused about a particular result you are getting and why it's not in alignment with your stated intention, simply examine the set of actions you have taken (or not taken) around the goal.

So here's the process:

  • For the particular goal you have, identify all of the action steps you can be taking that best position you for success. This should be relatively easy to do.
  • Now, rank the items in terms of their importance to achieving your goal. Again this should be relatively easy to do.
How many of the action steps have you not taken and how many rank near the top of the list?

Be honest.

If you find that you have not been taking the actions that best position yourself for success, then you know there is work for you to do in terms of building your belief. And that, my friend, is another conversation altogether ...
