Believing in Belief
It happens time after time again. People who believe they’re going to accomplish something actually do it. People who don’t think they have a chance, don’t.
This isn’t a coincidence and it’s not a case of some people being more “realistic “ than others…
We like to justify and say things like, “No really, that worked for him because X, but it could never work for me because Y.” If you rationalize to yourself why you don’t have a chance, then you can’t feel bad when you don’t succeed. But then you never experience that joyful exhilaration of accomplishing something epic.
If you don’t have people around you who support you and empower you to reach farther, correct that as soon as you can. But here’s the secret to doing that…
Believe in yourself before you ask anyone else to.
