Belief in oneself is of utmost importance if you want to live a fulfilling life.
Not simply just convincing yourself that you can do this or you can accomplish that. It’s about stripping away sinews of doubts, fears and perceptions down to the bone of the fact that you can do whatever you damn well want. Yeah, sure it’s easier said than done yada yada … but it does not change that it is true.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”― Henry Ford
I remember this in the nick of time when I’m sizzling and popping in that frying pan and catching myself just before I fall into the fire. But living on the edge all the time is exhausting and it ages you.
The thing is to remember this every day, and I might have to scribble it on a sticky-note and put it up in my room. Bit by bit etching it into our consciousness, like developing a sort muscle memory.
And there is power in this epiphany. That’s the power that’ll push us through some terrible times, that will keep us lean in times of plenty.
We need every bit of it we can get.
