"Believe in yourself and in your dream,
Though impossible things may seem;
That some how, some way you'll see it through
to the goal you have in view.
Mountains fall and seas divide before the one who in his stride
takes the hard road day by day sweeping obstacles away.
Believe in yourself and in your plan;
Say not I can not but rather I can.
The prizes of life we fail to win
Because we doubt the power within."
This poem sure packs a powerful wallop, doesnt it? It reassures us that when, not "if", we believe in ourselves and in our abilities, we can have anything and everything in life that we have ever imagined.
"The prizes of life we fail to win because we doubt the power within." Wow! That sentence really says it all. When we finally eliminate all of those self defeating doubts that have haunted us for oh so long, we clear the path to having, doing or being anything and everything we have ever dreamed about. This poem reminds us to live our lives the way we were born to live them ... confidently, courageously and without a doubt.
Just for a moment, imagine yourself living without worry and doubt, totally free to believe and achieve. What a way to go ... and grow! We need to stop doubting ourselves and start believing in ourselves, our plans and our dreams. Let's stop saying we cant and start saying we can, we can
You and I have always had what it takes to be counted among the best of the very best. We can choose to live a life completely devoid of worry and fear when we choose to live without a doubt. The moment we start believing deep down in our hearts and our souls that we can do it, we will start living life on our terms
without a doubt!
