So here’s the bad  news – without belief in yourself you will perpetually be a victim of your own circumstances. If you do not believe that you can make a difference you won’t!

And here is a staggering statistic – most human being do not believe that they can change their own circumstances.  They are trapped by their own restrictive thinking.

The truth, of course, is very different. Ask any person who has made a success and they will tell you that they had an unswerving belief in themselves and what they were doing.

So here is the secret to success – believe in yourself!

All well and good you might say, but how is this done?

It’s quite simple actually.

Get someone else to believe in you more than you believe in yourself and you’ve won the day.


Because they will show you how and why you can believe in yourself.

Okay I buy this but where do you find such a person?

Get yourself the right coach/mentor – someone who doesn’t know you and who can give you a fresh perspective on yourself. . . . and hold you to it!
