Believing is always the first step and the most important step you will ever take on your trip to the top. How can any of us ever expect our dreams to come true if we don't believe, really believe deep down in our hearts and souls, that they are indeed possible?
As the Bible reminds us, you reap what you sow in life. Regardless of whether you believe you can or think you "can't", you are always 100% correct. If you think your life will be filled with trouble and heartbreak, chances are good that a lifetime of disappointment awaits.
On the other hand, when you truly believe that life has some great things in store for you, you will soon find yourself living those great times each and every day. Since your outlook will always determine your outcome, which of these two "outlooks" on life gets you closer to accomplishing your goals?
You can do anything, be anything, accomplish anything you have ever wanted ... when you believe you can.
What kind of outlook do I consistently hold in my mind? Your mind can be your most powerful ally or your most destructive foe, depending on whether you choose to use it or abuse it. Your marvelous mind is capable of incredible creativity, well beyond your present comprehension, when you turn it on and then turn it loose.
We often get so caught up in the hassles and hubbub that tend to dictate our lives that we sometimes forget that we are completely free to choose our own lot in life. That's right! You are totally free to choose exactly how your life unfolds. You can choose to enjoy a lot of good in your life or alternatively, choose to endure a lot of bad. Come on, why in the world would you ever choose the latter?
Rather than needlessly waste even a moment looking at the bad side of things, why not look for all of the good you can accomplish in your life time? Instead of allowing yourself to get all tied up in knots, why not focus on ways to make things better? You can
when you believe you can. Remember, you are in total control. You can be, do and have anything you have ever wanted right here and now ... when you have the courage to believe in yourself.
Isn't it about time to make all of those things that youve dreamed about it come true? Since its your choice, why not decide to choose the best life has to offer? Why not choose to be your very best every day for the rest of your life?
