Henry Fords name is forever etched into the annals of American history. His company's success story, which continues to this day, was a direct result of his innovative approach to business. Henry Ford was a winner who knew how to win and he believed in surrounding himself with winners as well. When it came down to the type of people he wanted working for him, it seemed he always looked for workers who didn't know it couldn't be done.
He knew his company could never reach the lofty goals and objectives he had set by employing people who offered up excuses why things couldn't be done. The only way for his business to grow and flourish was to hire people who truly believed anything was possible. His winning workforce repeatedly found creative ways to accomplish the so-called "impossible", because these winners did not know it couldn't be done.
There is an old proverb that says, "I'll believe it when I see it". A winner's version instead says, "I'll see it when I believe it". After all, seeing is believing ... in yourself. Henry Ford's group believed that they could indeed do it and guess what, they did it. This irrepressible contingent of American made winners repeatedly rewrote the history books as they continued to do it
over and over again.
You too need to believe, deep down where it counts, that you can do it too. You've got to believe in yourself before you can reach your goals. You've got to believe in the winner inside of you before you can see that winner come out. In order to make something happen, you must first believe it can happen. You should openly embrace that "I didn't know it couldn't be done" mindset as well and put it to work for you.
You will begin seeing unbelievable results when you start believing in yourself and your abilities. You will definitely see it when you believe it.
