Don't Stop Believing

Posted by Upper Hand | Dec 3, 2012 10:25:38 PM

One of the first steps towards success is actually
believing that you can achieve whatever you define as ‘success.’ We’ve all heard the classic rock anthem “
Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey…you know how it goes “Don’t stop believin’ hold on to that feeeeeeeeelin’!” Man, I love that song! The power of believing in what you are doing and what you are capable of is HUGE…it is CRITICAL!
Fact – successful people believe in themselves and in what they are doing…they believe that they can achieve success, despite what naysayers may say. Part of believing is not letting others deter you from progressing towards success (for more on that please
read this). One of my favorite lines in any movie is from Star Wars. Luke is speaking with Yoda in a scene and the dialogue is so simple, yet so profound:
Luke:] I can’t believe it! [
Yoda:] That is why you fail. I love it. We are powerful beings and we are capable of incredible things, each and every one of us. Our minds are powerful. If we input something in our minds that is lacking the critical and emotionally relevant component of that is BELIEF, then we are doomed from the start. That said simply...why set a goal, lay out the steps to achieve this goal and take action towards achieving that goal if you haven’t convinced yourself that success is actually possible? Believe in yourself. Believe in your goals and dreams. You will not
chase your goals and your dreams, you will
catch them!   #TeamTRAINlete “
