How To KNOW You’re Going To Be Successful!

Written by Andy Shaw

Success the easy way, not the hard way equals an easy life.

To know something is very powerful. It means it’s absolute, it’s certain to you. It doesn’t mean that it is true, but it does mean it is true for you.

We create our reality based around what we know to be true. If you listen to any successful person they all say that they knew they were going to be successful, that they were just waiting for that success to show up.
This is not about self confidence, as they have that in abundance… There is no need for self confidence when you know something… Why? Because you know it! It needs no support.

We as humans were all born with the natural ability to create the state of ‘knowing something would be true.’ We used it to learn to walk. We were not able to communicate fully at that time, but if we were you would speak to the child and the child would be able to say… “Hell yes! This walking thing, I am so gonna own that! That’s happening! I don’t care what I have to do… I KNOW I am going to be walking soon!!”

It’s very powerful when you slow down and start to look at it. This is your natural success mindset.

We as were all naturally 100% self confident when we were born. We had no low self esteem or lack of confidence… We were complete as people; however, most of the world’s population appear to have lost their natural born self confidence on their journey through life. The secret for how to be confident lies in getting your natural mindset back…

So do you know you will become a success or do you know you will become a failure?

Do you want to say yes I will succeed, but secretly do you know you will fail?

You see, it is the state of knowing which is important to attain… And to know something you first have to conceive how it can be possible.

Every single thing you have achieved in your life which when you started out you weren’t sure you would achieve or not… Every single thing you achieved you attained the state of knowing you would at some point. This is how to become successful at anything you desire…

However, the same is of course true of failure… The power of knowing can be used to create or un-create… It is just a law of how things work and it has no feelings one way or the other about how it is used. Just as gravity has no feelings… it just is.

The Dark Side Of Knowing

However, knowing has a dark side too. The human race knows things on different levels… The first level is the weakest level of them all… This is intellectually knowing something.

Like before I ran financially successful businesses, I knew that I should have better financial control. I knew what I should do… But I didn’t apply it. So I only intellectually knew it.

A human ailment is that because we know something on an intellectual level, that sometimes somehow we don’t think we need to apply it. This is the dark side of knowing and basically we only know it on the intellectual level, which of course is of no value to our lives whatsoever.

However, when I took what I knew and absorbed it and applied those financial tools which I knew were needed, all of a sudden as if by magic I had several successful businesses. I no longer just knew it intellectually, I now had absorbed it and it was now part of me… In other words I now lived what I knew to be true.

That level of knowing is 100 times greater (at least) than the intellectual level. The weak level of knowing is the principle reason that people never succeed. As what they know they do not apply, so in effect what was the point of knowing it?
They just fill up their lives gathering more and more intellectual information which they will never apply…

So the point of it is? It is what society has told them that they should do, and so just like lemmings they are following what they have been taught to do without thought.
