As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy

Are You Determined To Fail?


Are you forever catching yourself saying “I don't believe these ideas will work for me?” Or, stated another way, “I don't believe I can make these ideas work. I don't believe in myself.”


A lack of belief in yourself will limit you no matter how great the ideas or opportunities are that you are exposed to.


Why are you determined to make these ideas not work for you? Why are you searching for reasons why these ideas won't succeed instead of figuring out a way to make something good happen?


The biggest difference between successful people and unsuccessful ones (in health, in business, and in life) is that successful people are determined to make the situation work for them rather than playing the role of the victim and searching for reasons why a situation won't work.


If you believe that something will be so you will make that happen!



Your beliefs become your thoughts, that ultimately leads to your destiny!


So to make ideas work you have to be willing to not just think differently, but to also to experiment with new ideas and trust that you'll discover a way to make them work.


Believe in Yourself


The biggest difference I've noticed between successful people and unsuccessful people isn't intelligence or opportunity or resources. It's the belief that they can make their goals happen.


We all deal with vulnerability, uncertainty, and failure. Some of us trust that if we move forward anyway, then we will figure it out.


When I started my business, I was the only entrepreneur in our family . I didn't have anyone to learn from, but I trusted that I would figure it out anyway.


When I discover an opportunity that sounds awesome but that I'm not qualified for (which happens often), I trust that I'll figure it out and go for it anyway.


I believe in myself. This confidence has made the difference for me again and again. I didn't need intelligence or opportunity or resources. Just a simple belief in myself.


Do You Believe That Change Is Possible for You?


Do you believe that it is possible for human beings to improve?


Do you believe that it is possible to raise your game in your own life even if the world around you accepts average?


Do you believe in yourself and in each other?


Do you believe that if you want better health or more happiness or a more meaningful life that you can make those things happen and so can you?


And because of this belief you are willing to test, experiment, and try new things even when you feel uncertain?


If you don't believe that it's possible to make new things work, then it's hard to make any progress. I don't care how good the ideas are, nothing will work for you if you don't believe in it.


And more importantly, nothing will work for you if you don't believe in yourself.
