"Your chances of success in any undertaking
can always be measured by your belief in yourself."
"You can do anything you think you can. This knowledge
is literally the gift of the gods, for through it you can solve
every human problem. It should make you an
incurable optimist. It is the open door."
-- Robert Collier
It has been said so many wonderful ways that to believe in ourselves is one of life's greatest answers. Besides these great ones from Robert Collier, there is a famous one from Henry Ford, "if you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right."
Of course there were so many from the last century, often coined as the century of new thought, but this idea of believing in oneself is pretty much as old as time. It's just that we haven't seen those quotes as much maybe. So, I thought that since this idea is so important to everything we do, I would share a few more with you.
"Everything is possible for him who believes." - Mark 9:23, the Bible
There are many quotes on this subject in the Bible. My personal favorite is from Matthew 17:19-20: "Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, "Why could we not cast it out?" And He said to them, "Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it shall move; and nothing shall be impossible to you.""
"They can. . .because they think they can." - Virgil
"A person under the firm persuasion that he can command resources virtually has them." -- Livy
"What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want and are fully determined not to quit until you get it." -- Alexander Graham Bell
"What The Mind Of Man Can Conceive And Believe, The Mind Of A Man Can Achieve." -- Napoleon Hill
