"It's the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen." - Muhammad Ali

Nobody really starts out believing in themselves or in their goals. One has to constantly remind himself that he is not crazy and his goals isn’t far-fetched. It’s after we believe in ourselves and our goals so much when things begin to happen.

Let me explain.

Let’s say, you want to be a professional football player, one of those guys in the premier leagues. If you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t get there. Why? Because if you don’t believe, you won’t take yourself or your goal seriously and you won’t make it a priority.

Some people may think of this example as unrealistic. That if it were to happen, it would merely be the person’s luck or a miracle. But if it were a miracle, how did those football players get where they are today?

Well, the difference is their belief. They believe so strongly in what they can be, that in their mind, that is the reality. And after that, things become a reality outside this guy’s head as well. All because of the amount of belief he has in his goals.

For you to achieve anything in life, you must believe it is real before it can happen. Because if you can’t see it in your mind and feel it with all your Heart, there isn’t a chance it will happen to you. It will just stay as a wish to you.

Believing in what you do is like planting a seed in your mind. When you constantly remind yourself that this is your reality, you are repeating your goals. That’s like watering the seed you planted and adding fertilizer to it. At least, this is what the Law of Sowing and Reaping says (check out www.AscendancePro.com for more about the Law of Sowing and Reaping and the Laws of Nature).

Some people get this part right but they give up half way, their belief runs out. They might stop believing because they see no proof that their goal is becoming a reality. What they may fail to realise is, like a seed, your goals that you ‘plant’ in your head may take time to materialize. The key is to just keep on believing even when nothing seems to be happening. Even more so, when things don’t go according to plan.

I guess this is what separates the winners and the losers in life. These successful people believe so much in their goal (they keep watering the ‘seed’ that they have planted in their head) and keep repeating their goals, that the seed in their mind is so well maintained, it has no choice but to grow. No choice but to become a reality.

I admit, believing in yourself isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do. But I post to you this question; if you won’t believe in yourself, then who will? I guess our belief weakens when we see nothing moving, that’s when all the doubts kick it. It’s like weeds in the beautiful garden in our heads. But like weeds, all we have to do is pull out our doubts and keep repeating our goals and make them seem as real to us as possible. We just need to keep watering our seeds.

Then only can our seeds grow into a huge trees. Then only can our dreams become a reality.

With that, I leave you with one last question:

So do you believe?
