In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can.
When we were much younger, few of us had any trouble believing we could be or do just about anything. In our highly creative imaginations, we could actually see and feel ourselves living out our wildest dreams, where we WERE whatever we wanted to be. We believed we could and we did.
Now, supposedly older and wiser, we quite often have a great deal of difficulty in believing anything is possible any more. Have you ever stopped and wondered what in the heck happened?
The only thing that stands between a man and what he wants from life is often merely the will to try it and the faith to believe that it is possible.
Richard M. DeVos
Years and years of coming up short have taken their toll on countless millions of us; gradually eroding away our once promising futures by wearing down our ability to believe. Oh sure, we can still conjure up crystal clear visions of ourselves living out our fantasies; but when push comes to shove our dreams are all too often shoved aside.
Since many of us have stopped believing we can, way too many of us have tossed in the towel and stopped passionately pursuing our dreams. In fact, many of us have completely given up hope; no longer able to believe that our dreams can come true. But all is not lost. In order to get whatever it is that each of us desire from our lives, all we need to do is believe that is possible again.
The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
Frank Lloyd Wright
Benjamin N. Cardozo said, We are what we believe we are. And when we muster the courage to believe we can, REALLY BELIEVE WITH ALL OF OUR MIGHT that we can; were well on our way to making it happen.
When Robert Oxton Bolt said, A belief is not merely an idea the mind possesses; it is an idea that possesses the mind," he was reminding us that our belief systems, regardless of whether they are good or bad or somewhere in between, shape the lives we live daily. When we believe we can, chances are pretty good that we will. But when we believe we cant, were pretty well finished before we even get started.
What ever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.
Our minds capacity to paint a vibrant picture of our lives as they could be and should be can never be dulled by time or neglect. No matter our age or how long it has been since we really believed in the magic of the present moment, our artistic imaginations still burn just as brightly as they ever did.
And if our minds can still conceive it, dont we owe it to ourselves and those around us to believe it as well? When we start following our hearts and begin believing that our lives are indeed a miracle in the making, we can set off a positive chain reaction that simply cannot be stopped. The minute we believe it we can achieve it.
Live your beliefs and you can turn the world around.
Henry David Thoreau
Rather than constantly moaning and groaning about the good life thats passing you by, why not decide right here and right now to let it rip from now on, boldly charting out a far more rewarding course for your life instead? Hey, why not go for the gusto by fervently living your beliefs with every ounce of energy, excitement and unbridled enthusiasm you can generate? By turning yourself loose, youll discover how easy it is to turn your entire world around.
William James once said, Believe that life is worth living and your belief will help create the fact." Come on, isnt your life worth living at full throttle; with nothing left behind, nothing left undone? Isnt it about time that you started believing in yourself and your remarkable God given abilities too? You bet its time. As a matter of fact, its YOUR time to take center stage and begin fashioning that dream come true lifestyle you desire and deserve.
When you start believing, and I mean really believing with everything youve got, there will never again be any limits on how far you can go or how high you can soar. Once you start conceiving and really believing, it's only a matter of time before you start really achieving; making your life everything you have always dreamed it could be.
The Bottom Line: When you believe you can, it's a cinch you will.
