When you visualize yourself as trying to do something,

you're going to

see

it as a struggle. Yet when you visualize yourself as

actually doing it,

naturally and easily, beyond the trying, you'll have

the genuine

confidence

to get it done.

Stop trying so hard and simply start to get it done.

Stop striving and

struggling against your own negative assumptions and

start following

your

positive possibilities.

Remove the word "trying" from your vocabulary, and

notice how much that

one

simple change can clarify your activities. Rather than

saying or

thinking,

"I'm trying to get this work done" see what happens

when you say "I'm

confidently getting this work completed."

It makes a huge difference in your perspective. It

helps you to see

each

action not as a desperate attempt, but rather as

confident step

forward.

When you're only trying, you're taking action without

being fully

committed

to that action. When you decide to step up and

actually do it, then

you're

committing yourself to taking whatever action is

necessary.

Go beyond merely trying -- get up and get busy doing.
