Success is the desire of just about every human being on earth, no matter the limitations, restrictions or challenges they might be confronted with, most people desire to succeed at something in life. It could be anything from finding a wife or husband to get a good job, start a business or finishing college or obtaining a degree, but all people everywhere wants to achieve something meaningful and significant. Not forgetting the wife who wants her family to succeed and become the family unit who love and support each other.

The main thing indicative of a person’s drive to succeed is their level of self-belief.  Believing in your ability to succeed is what will cause you to push on when others quit and throw in the towel. Self-belief is one of the main keys to success which causes people to dust themselves off and start again after a failed attempt. That believe that you can succeed will take you to the winner’s circle. There are countless stories and examples of people who achieved success, but examining the backgrounds or history of those people will reveal that they had quite a few failed attempts before they received the winner’s crown. The main thing which causes most people to start over after numerous failed attempts is their belief that they can succeed. This is the reason why you see women become great wives and mothers after having been disappointed or cheated on by someone they thought they will marry someday. They picked themselves up, dusted themselves off and started afresh, because they believed that they will find the right guy if they just don’t stop believing that he is out there. When you believe in your ability to succeed then you are already half way to success.

Success is not an accident or a coincidence, not for most people. People do not become great parents or great partners or great students, professors, doctors, nurses, teachers, presidents or business leaders overnight. All of these are a process, a process of self-persuasion, persuading yourself from an early stage that you do have what it takes to succeed. Success is deliberate, a planned event for most, but before success happens there is a person who must believe in their ability to achieve success first. Friend your ability to achieve success is enhanced and taken to a different level when you believe in yourself and that you can succeed. Your self-belief will cause you to rise up after every failed attempt, self-belief will pick you up when your ability is lacking, self-belief will tell you that you can do better and that you will get there, just don’t quit. Self-belief will drive you to keep trying and inspire you to turn defeat into victory. Self-belief will set you apart from the losers and bring you closer to the winners, self-belief will zoom in on your cans and your yesses, and self-belief will turn you into a winner long before you receive a crown. Half the battle is won when you believe in yourself and that you, yes you, can and will succeed.

Insecurity will call attention to your failures and shortcomings, but self-belief will focus on your victories and past achievements. Self-belief will keep you positive and drive out the voices and doubts trying to discourage you, self-belief will stand between you and the stuff that tries to tie you down. Self-belief will tell you to try again, look at it from a different angle, but just do not quit. Self-belief is the voice of God reminding you that it may take a while to get there, but get there you will. Self-belief is the light which will drive out the darkness and depression of defeat, it is the light that will guide you to your success, success which you will obtain if you believe in yourself.

“Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.” (Psalm 97:11 NIV)

Friend, wrap yourself in self-belief as with a garment, because it is like wrapping yourself with light. The light which will guide you out of the deepest depths of failure, despair and defeat is your belief that you can and will succeed.
