Consciously telling yourself you can and you will is part of the daily activities of highly successful people. Your words shape your mental model and your mental model shapes your actions. This is also the very basis of the law of attraction of the universe.
See the things that you want as already yours. Know that they will come to you at need. Then let them come. Don’t fret and worry about them. Don’t think about your lack of them. Think of them as yours, as belonging to you, as already in your possession.
– Robert Collier
1. Batch time for thinking.
“The winners in life think constantly in terms of I can, I will and I am. Losers, on the other hand, concentrate their waking thoughts on what they should have or would have done, or what they can’t do.” — Dennis Waitley
2. Schedule time for action.
“The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today.” — Nolan Bushnell
3. Create lists.
“The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities.” — Stephen Covey
4. Find a mentor.
“The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.” — Benjamin Disraeli
5. Plan evaluations.
“It is not enough to be busy. The question is: what are we busy about?” — Henry David Thoreau
