The Power Of Assumption

“As Within, So Without”*

You always behave on the outside in a manner that is consistent with your self-concept on the inside because all that you know and believe about yourself is recorded there.

Your level of performance in anything that you do is predictable because you always behave on the outside, in a manner that is consistent with your self-concept on the inside.

Your overall self-concept is made up of all your beliefs about yourself and your abilities including: all of the decisions, successes, failures, ideas, emotions, and opinions from your life. This overall self-concept then determines how and what you think and feel about yourself.

“As You Think, So You Become”**

You have a predisposed self-concept about how healthy and fit you are. How popular you are with the opposite sex. How good a parent, friend, and person you are. How smart, talented, and successful you are. In fact, all that you are lies within your self-concept.

You even have a self-concept about how much money you make and how good you are at saving and investing it. Because happiness often depends on being free from money worries, I often recommend Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind  {<free Copy} by T. Harv Eker.

Just like if you want to lose weight; you first must change your self-concept of how much you eat and exercise. If you want to make more money, you must change your beliefs about yourself that relate to your levels of income and money.

Self-Limiting Beliefs

To change your results in any area of your life, you need to first change your self-concept by changing what you believe you’re capable of in any one area. Then your performance will change.

Fortunately, your limiting beliefs are not always based upon fact. They’re mostly based on information that you’ve taken in and accepted as true, often as a child, with little evidence or proof to substantiate the belief.

Self-limiting beliefs cause you to feel deficient in a particular area. They are seldom true, but when you accept them as valid estimates of your ability, then they do become true for you. This is the law of belief in action.

Freedom Is The Key

To unlock your true potential, and accomplish more than you ever thought possible, you just have to change your self-limiting beliefs.

For example, I’m embarrassed to say that I used to smoke cigarettes. But, once I realized that I had started smoking because of peer pressure, and the false belief that is was cool, I was able to quit once and for all.

By using “The Dickens Pattern” {<Free Audio} by Tony Robbins, I questioned this false belief and tore it asunder. Because after all, how cool can it be to waste money and time by killing yourself slowly?

Then I changed what I believed to be cool to reading, learning, and growing as a human being. And once I did that, my whole world changed.

Imagine The Possibilities

Imagine that you had no limitations on your capabilities. Imagine that you could be, do, and have virtually anything that you really wanted in your life. And that you have unlimited potential. Imagine that you could set and achieve any goal.

When you start to change your thinking, your life starts to change. This is how you can overcome your fears and make your dreams come true.

Your self-image is how you see and think about yourself. This “inner mirror” dictates that you perform on the outside in a way that is consistent with how you see yourself on the inside.

Therefore, all improvements in your life first begin with improving your mental self-images. Because your mental self-images influence your emotions, behaviours, and attitudes, therefore they link directly to your results in every area of your life.

Your Ideal Self

The first part of your self-concept and personality is your self-ideal. All of your hopes, visions, dreams, and ideals make up your qualities, virtues, and values. Your ideal self is who you would truly like to be.

When you’re clear about your values and ideals, and set your standards accordingly, you then feel happiness when your actions are congruent with your standards. But, when you are not congruent, you feel badly deep down inside.

Self-Esteem And Law

How much you like yourself determines how well you perform at everything you try. Self-esteem is the essential component of your personality in determining how you think, feel, and behave.

It determines how confident you are, and therefore your level of enthusiasm. The more you like yourself, the higher standards you will have for yourself.

This is why people with high self-esteem are virtually unstoppable. They dream big dreams, and go for the gold.

The more you like yourself, the better you perform. And conversely, by the law of reversibility, the better you perform, the more you like yourself.

The Power Of I Am

You also become what you say to yourself. That’s why when you tell yourself things like, “I can do it, “I feel incredible”, and ‘I’m unstoppable” you increase your power and confidence.

I believe that the law of assumption is the most powerful of laws because it is the precedent that sets in motion the law of attraction, and the many of the other universal laws of mind.

When you tell yourself things like, “I am smart, talented, wealthy, healthy, and successful” over and over again with feeling, then you start to believe that it’s true. And then you start to act accordingly.

And therein lies the power of acting like the person that you truly desire to be. When you act a certain way, you start to feel that way, and then you start to take action instead of giving into your fears. And action is truly what completes the miracle process.
