Believe it

If you believe something about yourself, it may not be true when you start to believe it, yet in time you will surely make it true. You will become whatever you continue to believe. That’s good news or bad news, depending on the image you have of yourself in your own mind.

Who do you believe you are? You can be precisely the person you decide to be. It is entirely up to you. The person you truly believe yourself to be, will come to life through the thoughts and actions which spring from that belief.

The way you see yourself will color every moment of every day. Each of those moments, consistently applied toward your guiding beliefs, will mold and shape your life and your world.

Be mindful of what you believe about yourself, because you will spend your time, your effort and all that you have in striving to make it true.

Believe that you can be it, believe that you can do it, believe that you can have it. And you will.

— Ralph Marston
