Believe


It's like that old joke about how long did it take Bell to discover the light bulb. Then realizing it was Edison who did it. Though I like to think he developed it rather than discovered. He was much more methodical and had a set goal in mind.

To break a 4 minute mile, or develop a light bulb, or get all the kids off to school and still make it to work on time, all require some set goal, but also must have a certain amount of belief. There must be some belief it can be done, but also some belief that you yourself can accomplish it.

There was a famous story about a study of students from a well-known university who had been successful many years later. Apparently the common denominator was that they had all written down their goals.

It is very important to set a goal, and likely very helpful to write it down. But, how many times have you written down a goal, or thought of something that would be nice to accomplish but you never did?

Though there are many other factors involved one certainly must believe that one can achieve the goal set, and then strive diligently to do so.

There's a great motivational poster called Believe - Marathon Runners with a quote "Believe in yourself. You must do that which you think you cannot". -Eleanor Roosevelt

It's a bit of an oxymoron; where you should believe you can do it, but do what you think you can't, though I think she was trying to get across to all of us who don't quite think big enough that you can actually do more than you might normally think possible.

So, set your sights high, keep your focus, and go for it. (Ok, lunches for the kids, keys to the car, 12 minutes to the school, 9 minutes to work. No problem)
