Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn’t have it in the beginning.

  1. “What a man can conceive and believe, he can achieve.” Napoleon Hill, “Think and Grow Rich” 1934
    “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find, knock and the door shall be opened unto you.” The Gospels of Jesus Christ circa 65 -92 A.D.

    Always nice to see this Truth repeated. Thanks for posting, Don Charisma….

  2. Here is yet another comment that says basically the same thing: “In the province of the mind, what one believes to be true either is true or becomes true”

    – John Lilly

  3. Henry Ford, a long time ago, said, “Whether you think you will succeed, or you think you will fail, you are right” (possibly not his exact words, but something like that 🙂
