Jack Canfield's Success Principle #4 – Believe it’s Possible
Believing in the possibility is key in manifesting your deepest desires. Find out more here.
To continue our teachings from Jack Canfield, Co-Author of Chicken Soup for the Soul, Success Coach, Speaker and CEO of Canfield Training, Success Principle #4 is vital to getting from where we are to where we want to go. If we don’t believe in ourselves, or our dreams, we will never get there.
We work from a place of experience. What we know to be true, because we experienced it and its outcome, is how we expect the next similar problem with its outcome to materialize. We have an expectation from our past as to how our future unfolds. Unfortunately, this could lead us to believe that we can’t change the results because we already know how it is going to turn out – or so we think.
You should replace these beliefs or negative outcomes with more positive ones, at minimum replace them with your desired outcomes. Just because the events turned out one way in the past does not mean that the future will repeat itself. Believe that things or people or events do change, and hence the final results could also change.
“Believe in yourself, and go for it, says Jack!”

The Importance of Believing It's Possible!
Most people fail not because they lack the skills but instead they lack the belief that they can achieve the outcome they desire.
If you can’t do this for yourself, enlist the support of those around you that know you can do it. Don’t slough it off! Really listen to them. Use their positive energy to nudge you into the direction of your goals. With a little nudge, the momentum of achieving your desires comes so much quicker. It’s like pushing a large rock down the hill. You have to give it a push in order for it to start rolling. It doesn’t roll on its own.
Set your beliefs that you will be successful or find a true supporter to give you that nudge. Then, enjoy the ‘I told you so’ comment from others.
