Quote: “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” – Napoleon Hill
You’ve heard the adage, “A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” It is so very true. In fact the mind is so powerful, that Neuropsychologists now believe that we get in life what the brain expects to happen to us next. In other words, they say we spend our whole life becoming conditioned. Through a lifetime’s worth of events, our brain actually learns what to expect next. And because we expect it, we often get it. Do you realize how powerful that is?
If you expect to get paid more and promoted faster, you will. But the opposite is also true. If you think your current federal job is a dead end and that you will never be promoted, then you won’t. The power is literally in your head.
So if getting a promotion is what you want, you have to believe you are capable of making it happen. Believing in yourself is a choice. It’s an attitude you develop over time. It is up to you to choose to be a better, more successful person.
I personally love our brains. Two main factors seem responsible for how our brain develops throughout our lifetime – what we allow to enter it through our senses and what we choose to think about. The brain therefore is deeply affected by our experiences and our thinking.
So surround yourself with positive people and think about positive things. Believe that you will get that promotion and you will. You have to train your brain to expect greatness in the future. Only then will you attain it.
