Know you can

It’s great to believe you can accomplish some particular thing. It is far more powerful, however, to know you can.

When you merely believe, there is still room for doubt. When you know, there is no doubt at all.

How do you go from belief to knowing? You must put that belief into action.

Go ahead and take the first small step in the direction of your goal. Feel how it feels and know what it’s like to actually accomplish what you have chosen to accomplish.

With thinking and planning and strategizing, you believe. With experience, you know.

Get yourself some real live experience in moving toward your goal. Once you know you can, you will.

— Ralph Marston
