I…I believe…I believe that…I believe that we…I believe that we will…I believe that we will win! I believe that we will win! If you watched any of the recent World Cup Soccer games involving the US Men’s Team, you probably witnessed thousands of fans jumping up and down while chanting these words. Interestingly, the origin of the cheer came from a football game, and is based on the premise that you don’t win if you don’t believe you will win.
Belief, like faith, is believing in what you can’t see. It is having faith you will win based on the hard work and sacrifices you have made. I love the following quote from Barbara J. Winter: “When you come to the edge of all the light you know and are about to step off into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing one of two things will happen. There will be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly.” Too often, when faced with the unknown, we are unwilling to take that leap of faith which is necessary to move us forward.
Recognize, trust and use the power of belief or faith. While I can’t guarantee that simply by making the leap you will be successful, the chances are if you have prepared yourself adequately, there will be solid ground on which to stand…or you will be taught how to fly. Listen for it! I…(it starts as a whisper)…I believe…(it is getting stronger)…I believe that…(we are worthy)…I believe that we…(we have prepared)…I believe that we will…(it is time to fly and the plan into action)…I believe that we will win! I believe that we will lose One Million Pounds this year!
