Quotes by Leaders
“Whatever you want in life, other people are going to want it too. Believe in yourself enough to accept the idea that you have an equal right to it.” – Diane Sawyer
It has always come down to whether or not I believe in myself and my abilities to accomplish the goals I’ve set out for myself. Believing in yourself is incredibly powerful and is often the difference maker.
As a collegiate athlete, I accomplished more than most people do. Although I had the talent to be more successful, I simply didn’t believe in myself or believe that I had an equal right at winning at a Division I level.
As a look back at my collegiate track career, I often wonder, “what if”. What if I believed in myself more? What if I stopped worrying about failing and just took a leap of faith?
It’s taking me a long time to realize just how powerful the mental side of life really is. It’s a never ending battle between your physical output and your mental mindset. Once you understand just how powerful it is, well then, you can truly accomplish anything you set your mind to.
If you’re reading this then take the leap of faith, because even if you fail, you’ve won. Failing is learning and learning leads to progress. Progress gets you one step closer to accomplishing your goals.
