The Most Courageous People in the World
Who are the most courageous people in the world? Armed services? Coastguards? Astronauts? Firepersons? Explorers? Mountaineers? ??Sports? For us, the most courageous people in the world are those who are committed to discovering how they can get the best out of themselves. Individuals, who are committed to learning about and changing, their habits and beliefs in order to fulfil their dreams. Individuals, who are fighting the dreaded disease of complacency.
Complacency is one of the deadliest diseases you face in your life. It stifles growth. Kills companies. Destroys the economy of your Country. Changes and destroys your relationship with your partner, friends, children and colleagues.
have a feeling of self-satisfaction.
find you are low in energy and enthusiasm.
have become unaware of danger, trouble, or controversy in your life.
find it difficult to accept positive criticism and acknowledge your mistakes.
take ages making a decision, especially those that will change your future or may be unpopular.
go through the day with an attitude of ' that's good enough' or 'that will do'.
Then, in a nutshell, complacency has you in it's hands and is destroying you.
Complacency is taking away your spirit.
How do you overcome complacency? What's the treatment?
Napoleon Hill says the treatment is: Control Your Own Thoughts."You are searching for the magic key that will unlock the door to the source of power; and you have the key in your own hands, and you make use of it the moment you learn to control your own thoughts."
The magic key is NOT to focus on and control your negative and wasteful thoughts but to develop your necessary and positive thoughts.
Negative and wasteful thoughts, like blame and worry, have no useful purpose. Their job is to reduce your energy and your potential. To make you weaker than you really are. Therefore DO NOT concentrate your thinking on your weaknesses because the more you think negative and wasteful thoughts the further and further you will get from your potential. You cannot change negative thoughts to positive ones.
So, what can you do?
There are two strategies that you can adopt to be successful:
1. Focus on your necessary and positive thoughts. Necessary thoughts: those that keep your life working naturally and Positive thoughts are those that move you forward with the intention of forming win/win relationships. Both are invaluable. They bring you energy and success. They are your seeds to a successful life. They drive your feelings, words and actions. The more you can think in the positive the more your feelings, words and actions are positive and you are successful.
2. Stop asking yourself 'why' whenever you don't get the results you want.. 'Why' only causes you to respond with 'because'. And any sentence starting with 'because' means that you are now defending your past behaviour and change is impossible. Instead ask yourself; 'what caused it to happen' or 'how did it happen'. Now you have something strong to base your future on.
These strategies are the antidote that finishes complacency and give you freedom.
You have the freedom to choose your behaviour. You don't have to continue following others and what others say to you. All you have to do is focus on your natural and positive thoughts. These give you power and enable you to find what you are truly capable of.
The most courageous people in the world are those who overcome the disease of complacency and strive to be all they are capable of being.
"Only those who risk going far can possibly find out how far one can go"(TS Eliot 1888 - 1965)
