believe

 

The thing always happens that you believe in and the belief in the thing makes it happen.

Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) architect, designer, writer, and educator

 

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.

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) leader of Indian independence and founder of a global movement of non-violent civil disobedience

 

Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973) Spanish painter, sculptor, ceramicist printmaker, stage designer, poet, and playwright.

 

IF the single man plant himself indomitably on his instincts, and there abide, the huge world will come around to him. 

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1867-1959) writer, essayist, poet, and leader of the American Transcendentalist movement

 

 

Once you make a decision, the universe
conspires to make it happen
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1867-1959) writer, essayist, poet, and leader of the American Transcendentalist movement

 

(a personal reflection for the non-believers)

Ultimately, if you don’t believe in what you are doing you’ve missed something.  Accept that the voice is right and your dream is wrong.  Let go of your dream.  If it comes back it’s yours.  If it doesn’t go deeper and try again.  Examine your beliefs. Find out why you don’t believe.  What’s the problem?  Go deeper into the dream.  Find your way out of the tunnel.  Revise, focus, research, explore. Throw yourself in. The dream is in the making.
