15. Having Doubt in Your Abilities
It might sound arrogant to your friends and family if you were to say out loud that you believe you’re going to be rich someday. If you’re a humble person, you might genuinely doubt your ability to make a lot of money. But if you have any doubts at all in your chances of becoming rich, odds are that you’ll never get there. Think about all of the people throughout the course of history who achieved amazing things. Do you think they got there by telling themselves, “I can’t do this”? No. They got there because they believed in themselves.
Of course, you can’t simply believe millions into existence. It doesn’t work that way. You need to visualize your goals and figure out the steps in the process to achieve it. You need to believe that success is possible. If you have any doubt in yourself at all, this can completely interfere with your success. One good trick is to pretend like your success is guaranteed, or that it’s already happened.
