Have you ever dreamed about pursuing something that ignites your passion? Something that brings you joy as well as joy to others. It doesn’t matter what it is but you can achieve it. That’s the number one thing you must know. All it takes is you believing in yourself. You have to believe in yourself with all your heart that you can do whatever it is you want to do. Nobody is going to hand it to you, granted you may get some breaks along the way, but that is because someone believed in you after seeing how much you believed in yourself. Why would people believe in you? It’s because believing is contagious. When your belief in yourself is so strong that you will stop at nothing to achieve your goals and your drive to succeed is so fierce, sooner or later someone will see how no matter what obstacle you faced, you never quit and you continued on, no matter how many times you failed.
That’s the power of belief, it not only drives your desire to accomplish your goals, but it also fuels the belief of all those who you attracted to you by your hard work, dedication and most importantly, strong belief in yourself. They will not only believe in you and add to your strength, but they will also be inspired by you to believe that they also can pursue what they want most out of life and pursue it, just as you are. That belief that has fueled your ever burning desire to succeed, will now go on to ignite someone else passion and they will be inspired by the persons that you inspired and then they will do the same after that. Once you have an undying and unbreakable belief in yourself and what you can achieve, then you not only will inspire others but you will see others who are struggling just like you were and you will empower them by believing in them, just like those that believed in you and empowered you. It’s a never ending cycle that only makes you and each person you inspire stronger and more confident in themselves and their abilities. That is how a strong belief can be a contagious habit that can be passed on to change the lives of many. You have no idea how many lives you are touching, just by believing in yourself and not being afraid to go after what you truly want in life. Never underestimate the power of belief.
