Your Mind is the Foundation

It Starts in the Mind

The most important element of the SHARK Belief philosophy is Beliefs.  This includes everything about your mind such as your character, your thought process and motivations.  Your psychology must be managed and improved if you are to reach the levels of success you’re capable of.

Your mind is the bedrock foundation to your success.  Your psychology, thoughts, and beliefs all form the ultimate foundation upon which you build your achievements and your life will reflect your thoughts.

It is through the mind that you first consider possible goals.

It is through your mind that you gain knowledge and understanding.

It’s ultimately from your mind that you decide to take the necessary actions that lead to new habits, skills and accomplishments.

Remember, You become what you think about most of the time. Success starts in the mind.

Build A Skyscraper

You can often tell how high a building will be built by looking at how deep and strong the foundation is. The construction team may spend several months planning, digging, pouring and reinforcing a strong foundation before a single story of a skyscraper is started.

Conversely, the foundation for a single family home may be nothing more than a slab of concrete a few inches thick and is completed in a few days. While the skyscraper foundation requires more time and action, the end result is spectacular and orders of magnitude greater.


“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young.

The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”  

– Henry Ford


Your mind is much like this in the sense that the stronger, deeper, and more developed your foundation, the more likely you are to realize big dreams and achievements.  Which are you?  Have you stopped developing and settled for a small and simple life or do you continue to find new ways to improve yourself, motivate yourself, and dream of making greater impact?

The choice is yours, you are either building a little house or building a skyscraper.




Never Stop Developing Your Mind

Unlike the skyscraper’s foundation however, your mind is a highly complex machine that can be reprogrammed and continually improved so that your foundation continues to expand and strengthen. You can simultaneously build your skyscraper while deepening and reinforcing its foundation so that greater heights can be achieved.
