Believe in it

Do you truly believe in the value of your own pursuits? If so, there’s not much that will be able to stop you. If not, why are you wasting your precious time on them?

Belief in what you’re doing will make you vastly more enthusiastic, resourceful and effective. It will let you see valuable opportunities where others just see annoying problems. Your belief will enable you to persevere through the difficult times and grow stronger in the face of challenges.

Perhaps you think that doing what you believe in is a luxury you cannot afford. After all, the bills do have to be paid.

Yes, indeed, the bills must be paid. And the very best way to do that is by putting your efforts where they will create the most value. If you don’t believe in what you’re doing at the moment, then map out a plan that will take you from where you are right now to where you can truly believe in what you’re doing. Once you make that connection, even though nothing else has changed, you’ve suddenly added the power of belief to your efforts.

Believe in what you’re doing. Believe in where you’re going. You can find a way. Find it, hold on to it, and be unstoppable.

— Ralph Marston
