Believe in Yourself.
"Our greatest excuse for not taking action today is that we believe we don’t have what it takes to make it tomorrow."
I wonder what the world would be like if Bill Gates decided that he wanted to be a pro… sportsman?
Or if Henry Ford pursued a career in acting?
Would basketball be the same if Michael Jordan quit his career in basketball after getting cut from the high school team?
What if Sir Edmund Hillary didn’t say “some day I am going to climb Everest”? Ok, let’s make this super personal…
How has the world permanently changed because YOU stopped believing.
YOU let go of the dream.
YOU listened to others.
YOU forgot what you were put on this planet to do.
You see it’s quite easy to look back in history and see it’s incredible impact in other peoples choices.
It’s less empirical to look into the ‘what if’ of our own lives.
This provides, I think, a very shallow ‘safe zone’ for ourselves.
We can live there without…
We can tune out to the world.
Surround our minds in entertainment.
Anesthetize our very dreams.
I challenge you to a higher level of existence.
Where you are ‘all in’ in your dreams.
That you believe in yourself despite what the world looks like around you.
Whatever dream you threw out.
It’s time to pick it up again.
Your life is not your own my friend.
Every single one of us is connected.
What you do with your dreams and your life impacts us all.
So dream again.
Cast a new vision.
Believe in yourself.
Even if it is the smallest thing…
Take action on that dream today.
Call a friend and tell them.
Pick up what you put down.
Write it down.
That small bit of action is enough to get the whole thing moving…
It just all starts with you..
