If you believe you can, you probably can. If you believe you won’t, you most assuredly won’t. Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad.
– Denis Waitley
Lets ask a question today, Do you think you can clear this exam? Don’t worry I am not looking at this answer, what I am actually looking for is – DID YOU BLINK? Did you even for second doubt yourself? Did it make your smile disappear for a moment and become all serious about it? Well if the answer is yes, I would suggest there is a small reword needed!
The starting point of all dreams, all passions in life is the belief, the belief in the dream, the belief in the process and above all the belief in you – you capacities, your perseverance, your strength, your passion, your desire to make it all happen. If you for a moment doubt yourself on that, it is like opening a can of worms – it offers you a whole lot of questions along with it which you might not be comfortable to answer. I am not suggesting that you should not be prepared – well you can be, it is completely up to you. But I am suggesting not to doubt yourself, the moment you doubt you start creating various alternatives and before you know, your main goal doesn’t remain the main one anymore, it takes a secondary place. And we all know how we treat a secondary desire!
The more you believe you can’t the less you have a chance of making it through, in fact if you are so strongly convinced that you can’t and are trying for that one factor that may work in your favour, the better suggestion is to drop it. If you are giving it, give it all it deserves, there is no place for a regret, there is no place for a do over, there is one place for the whole of you to be in, from the heart, from your belief to the action of preparation. Every bit of it starts from your mind. Having said that, I agree- your belief is your choice, my only suggestion is that make a choice that serves you!
