Henry Ford said, "If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right." That is a true statement about the power that your thinking has over your life. This is seen in goals and feats that are achieved all the time.
One must have belief that they can do something or it won't happen. It's not a hope or a wish, it's a true conviction, an unshakable belief that you are going to do it. A belief so strong that no matter what anyone else may think or say, no matter the opinions nay-sayers may share, no matter what may seem to be a lack of resources or know-how, it WILL BE DONE! When you have a belief that strong and you are focused on the end result, you are persistently thinking and knowing that you will do it. It is then that the resources will show up, the next step will be revealed, the next idea will come to you, all when you need it. All it takes is belief and faith, faith to start, conviction and belief with no doubt that you will succeed.
Go accomplish whatever you want with that same belief and know that you can!
Here is a great poem, author unknown, that really illustrates the power of thought and belief...
If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don’t.
If you’d like to win, but think you can’t,
It’s almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’ve lost.
For out of the world we find
Success begins with a fellows will.
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you’re outclassed, you are.
You’ve got to think high to rise.
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster person.
But sooner or later the person who wins
Is the one who thinks they can.
