The Power of Conviction

Last Update: September 19, 2016

We are all controlled by our beliefs and convictions whether we are aware of it or not.

These convictions determine the nature of our thinking, which in turn cause the actions we take.

As we make it a point to move forward in our mind, it unfolds the power of thought that develops hidden possibilities. I find the quote below from Sophia Loren uplifting when I have wobbly moments.

What strategy do you employ that makes you TICK?!

Everything on this earth is temporary. Most of the time we take ourselves and the things of this world to serious. That mindset makes us afraid to try new things for fear of failure. Just step out. Be fearless. The worst that can happen is "you fail". But failure is a great teacher, if you don't give up. My advice is: When you fall, look around and see what made you fall and correct it. Then you can get back up dust yourself off and start all over again. Never give up. If you never give up, then failure becomes a stepping stone to greater things.

Thank you my friend, beautiful insights. I always see 'failure' as feedback and as you said Jean, not giving up is the key that will unlock that door. I appreciate your feedback.

In the past, the issue I've had when falling down, I've stayed on the ground too long! Making an assessment is needed, but that shouldn't turn into a career, lol.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts Jean!

I agree. A quick assessment and a quick fix if possible. If a fix isn't possible; just get up and move on. Thanks.

I guess for me the belief that anything is possible through hard work keeps me positive. And never giving up even when I really feel like it.

I raise my glass to that Erica. It also comes down to what the guys are saying below; self belief, tuning negative people out in order to stay focused, staying with one's gut feeling. Love it! :)

Great post, I don't focus on negative things in my life, and I belief in myself.

Great strategy Anthony. Without self belief, I can't imagine how challenging life will be.

The ability to tune out certain people and their negativity works for me.

I rely on gut feeling, if it feels right I run with it and try not to let people's opinions sway me.

Thant's a great place to be Antonio. You would not believe how many people in our life travels who sway like a pendulum.
