Belief is the underestimated power of achievement.
Beliefs are the building blocks of the mind. Our beliefs determine our thoughts and attitudes about life, which in turn direct our actions and achievements. By our beliefs we create our actions and finally our destiny.
Belief is an incredibly powerful state of mind. Your belief system not only defines and shapes who you are, but it also determines your potential.
Science, strictly speaking, deals only with observable phenomena. Anything that cannot be observed (either directly or indirectly) is, by definition, not a subject of scientific investigation. Scientists look for patterns among observations, which give rise to hypotheses to be tested against further observations. If a hypothesis passes these tests, it is then called a scientific theory. Yet, so many achievers in life got where they are simply because they strongly believed in themselves, their ability to reach a goal, and the fact that whatever they are wishing for is achievable and not just wishful thinking.
While you may not always get what you want, you will always get what you expect! Surprisingly, the power of belief and expectation work just as effectively on your feelings of self-doubt and limitation as they do on your thoughts of success and achievement. Think thoughts of defeat or failure and you are bound to be discouraged. Ever experienced that? The power of positive thinking is quite incredible. It is there for everyone to enjoy, yet few of us make use of it.
Belief is essentially a subjective feeling about the validity of an idea or set of facts. It is more than a mere suspicion and less than concrete knowledge. Unlike suspicion, which is based primarily on inner personal conviction, belief is founded upon assurance gained by empirical evidence and from other people. Positive knowledge, as contrasted with belief, is the clear perception of existing facts.
Want to achieve? Let your motto in life be: Creation ex nihilo (Latin for ‘Out of nothing, something’). To believe is to have the power to create. If there is something which you wish to achieve, the first step has to be belief.
Always remember this: Whether you think you can or think you can't - you are always right! Now go and create a life…
