Believe, really believe, you can move a mountain and you can. Not many people believe that they can move mountains. So, as result, not many people do.
On some occasion you have probably heard some one say something like, “it’s nonsense to think you can make a mountain move away just by saying, ‘Mountain, move away.’ It is simply impossible.”
People who think this way have belief confused with wishful thinking. And true enough, you can’t wish away a mountain. You can’t wish yourself into a five-bedroom, three-bath house or the high-income brackets. You can’t wish yourself into a position of leadership.
But you can move a mountain with belief. You can win success by believing you can succeed.
There is nothing magical nor mystical about the power of belief.
Belief works this way. Belief, the “I’m–positive–I–Can” attitude, generates the power, skill, and energy needed to do. When you believe-I-can-do-it, the how-to-do-it develops.
Every day all over the nation young people start working in NEW JOBS. Each of them “wishes” that someday he could enjoy the success that goes with reaching the top. But the majority of these young people simply don’t have the belief that it takes to reach the rungs. And they don’t reach the top. Believing it’s impossible to climb high, they do not discover the steps that lead to great heights. Their behavior remains that of the “average” person.
But a small number of these young people really believe they will succeed. They approach their work with the “I’m going-to-the-top” attitude. And with substantial belief they reach the top.Believing they will succeed - and that it’s not impossible – these folks study and observe the behavior of senior executives. They learn how successful people approach problems and make decisions. They observe the attitudes of Successful people.
