What It Takes To Success
What it takes for you to achieve what you want?
Money, contacts, opportunities, education, supports … and the lists go on and on (it's infinite).
Well, I don’t blame whomever who has the same list as above, I was (I don't claim that I'm a successful person now). We have been bought into this thinking since we were still very young, when we were still innocent and believing that the rules goes that way, but it doesn’t.
To make it worst, the education system that has been around for the last century never really tells us that we already have within us for what it takes to success. It was truly that great people like Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, Napoleon Hill and most recently Ted Ciuba, Anthony Robbins, Joe Vitale, Deepak Chopra and many others that took the initiative to reveal the secret of success.
You might have probably heard of, “Rich men get richer because they have plenty of money” or “Successful people succeeded because they have plenty of contacts and supports.”
I believed it too, do you?
Or did you?
If you don’t, then you are on the right path.
By they way, what it takes for an extraordinary human being like you and me to success?
Nothing but Resourcefulness
Nothing. None of the above. We don’t need all the things in the list to succeed. It is just an illusion or a self-fullfiling prophecy that we have created for ourselves in order not to accomplish more than what we are. This same thought that we have impressed upon on our subconscious will become a belief; the belief that will stop us to achieving more.
Most beliefs last for a lifetime and the price for those who uphold it, is pretty enormous; getting doomed in the circle of ‘failure’ and ‘poverty’ or in Sanskrit, they call it 'Samsara' (dogmatically, it represents a different meaning) or in modern term, 'the rat race'.
It hurts that when even if you said that you have changed your old limiting belief, the belief that you have to have all what it takes to success, you still don’t progress.
Still stuck. Why?
Why changes have been made and life still runs the same?
The thing that stops you from achieving what you want is the belief that you uphold within, the unconscious belief. The belief that acts as the blueprint of your life. And believe me that once you've impressed the subconscious of any beliefs whether good or bad, you will find it hard to alter later on. It's not that I say it's impossible, but it takes lots of efforts and your willingness to discard the old belief.
Lastly, we are more than what we think we are. We are the only things that it all takes for us to move forward. If we don’t, nothing will.
Tony Robbins has spoken about this on his fast pace speech at TED and he named it 'Resourcefulness'.

- Belief System
Belief is the ultimate system that drives man to succeed. If it is wisely used, man can overcome just any challenges and difficulties, but if it is wrongly used, man perishes. What is a belief? I’m not...
