12 Strategies That Make You Believe You Can Achieve Anything

Your beliefs about yourself can propel you to success and wealth or anchor you to failure and poverty. “I’m not smart”, “I have bad luck”, “I was born poor and poor people don’t get rich”, “I can’t (fill in the blank)” will anchor you in failure.

If you want to re-tune your brain for success you need to start by wiping out those negative beliefs and replace them with positive beliefs. Below are 12 strategies that will jump start your positive thinking:

  1. Make a list of all of your wishes and dreams.
  2. Write a future letter to yourself. This letter sets forth the incredible, ideal life you have five years from now. You write it as if it were the present. Don’t hold back. Describe the house you live in, the car you drive, the ideal job you have etc.
  3. Write your obituary. Describe the incredibly successful life you lived. List all of your accomplishments and successes. Paint a picture of the perfect life you left behind.
  4. Set one big goal that will help you realize the ideal life you described in the future letter and obituary.
  5. Create a vision board. This is a picture of all of the things you have in your future life. The house by the beach, the RV, the boat, plane, Rolex watch etc.
  6. Create daily affirmations that are tied to your new big goal and the future you. Affirmations act like computer software programming on the brain. They need to be in the present tense and represent a future state. Example: “I am a successful podcaster”, “I love living in my Jersey shorehouse”, “I enjoy traveling to Hawaii for speaking engagements”.
  7. Meditate every day. Start out by meditating for just 60 seconds upon waking up in the morning or right before bedtime. This will soon become a daily habit. Try to build up to 2-3 minutes twice a day. When you meditate, visualize your ideal life and all of your goals and wishes coming true.
  8. Practice gratitude every day. Being thankful for what you have sends a message to your brain that you like getting things. Your brain will then go to work seeking out more things for you to be grateful for.
  9. Practice optimism. Start looking at the positive aspects of your life and stop focusing on the negative. Negative thinking programs your mind into believing you will fail. Practiced optimism reprograms your brain. Your brain will now go to work seeking out more things to be positive and optimistic about. It opens your eyes to opportunities that will make you more successful.
  10. Learn to live in the present and don’t allow worries to intrude. If you allow worries to occupy your mind while on vacation, at the beach, at a family party etc.,  you will have lost that happiness event forever.
  11. Maintain a victory log. This is a log in which you list any success, big or small. Keep it close to you. Get in the habit of success thinking. You do this by focusing on your successes and not your failures. The victory log will help you become success conscious.
  12. Reward yourself each time after logging in a success on your victory log. The brain likes the feeling of being rewarded. It likes it so much it will re-tune your RAS into seeking more victories in life.

Thomas C. Corley About Thomas C. Corley

Tom Corley understands the difference between being rich and poor: at age nine, his family went from being multi-millionaires to broke in just one night, due to a catastrophic fire that destroyed his Dad's thriving business. For fourteen years they struggled with poverty. There were eleven in Tom's family, and they lived in constant fear of losing their home.

Driven by the desire to unlock the secrets to success and failure, Tom spent five years studying the daily activities of 233 rich people and 128 poor people. He discovered there was an immense difference between the habits of the rich and the poor. During his research he identified over 300 daily activities that separated the “haves” from the “have nots.” Tom decided to write a book to share what he learned. That book, Rich Habits: The Daily Success Habits of Wealthy Individuals (1st Edition), went on to become an Amazon Bestseller in the United States forty times over a three year period. To give you some perspective, in order to be a true Amazon Bestseller in the United States, where you actually receive a specific Bestseller designation from Amazon, you need to be in the top 100 of all books sold by Amazon in the United States in a given day. Rich Habits did that for nearly thirty straight days, rising as high as #7, eclipsing such Bestselling authors such as Stephen Covey, Robert Kiyosaki and J.K. Rowlings. Imagine that - an unknown, first-time, self-published author selling more books than J.K. Rowlings!

Tom now travels the world, sharing his Rich Habits and motivating audiences at industry conferences, corporate events, universities, multi-level marketing group events, and global sales organizations’ presentations and finance conferences. He has even spoken on the same stage with famous entrepreneurs and personal development experts, such as Sir Richard Branson, Robin Sharma, Dr. Daniel Amen, and many others.

Tom has shared his insights on various national and international network, cable, and Internet television programs such as CBS Evening News, NBC News, Yahoo Financially Fit, Money.com, India TV, News.com Australia, and a host of others. He has been interviewed on many prestigious nationally syndicated radio shows, including the Dave Ramsey Show, Marketplace Money, and WABC.

Tom has been featured in numerous print magazines—such as Money magazine, Inc. Magazine, SUCCESS Magazine, Entrepreneur magazine, Fast Company magazine, More magazine, Epoca Magazine (Brazil’s largest weekly) and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine—and various online publications, including USA Today, CNN, MSN Money, SUCCESS.com, Inc.com, and the Huffington Post. Tom is a frequent contributor to Business Insider, Credit.com, Bankrate.com and a few other media outlets.

National publicity has garnered international media attention for Tom and his Rich Habits research spanning 23 countries. Broadcast media, online publications, and television throughout Asia, the South Pacific, Europe, the United Kingdom, and Central and South America have shared his powerful message.

In an effort to help parents, grandparents, teachers and adults become success mentors to the younger generation, Tom released his second book, Rich Kids: How to Raise Our Children to be Happy and Successful in Life in 2014. This book was the self-help category winner of the 2015 New York Book Festival and Runner-up in the prestigious 2015 Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards Contest. In 2016 Tom released his third book, Change Your Habits, Change Your Life. This book provides the latest science on habit change as well as more of Tom's unique research on the specific habits that helped transform 177 ordinary individuals into self-made millionaires.

Besides being an author, Tom is also a CPA, CFP, and hold a master’s degree in taxation. As president of Cerefice and Company, CPAs, Tom heads one of the premier financial firms in New Jersey.
