Take a step back and reflect on your dreams, and the goals you’ve set for yourself, do you really believe it will happen?

“Believe you can, add to it action, and the universe begins to align in your favour, and things begin to fall in place.”

Do you believe you will succeed at your goals and plans?

You’ve figured out what you want, you strongly desire to see it happen, however, do you really believe it will happen.

If you don’t believe, herein lies a foundational roadblock.

When Obama decided to run for US presidency, he believed he could when many of us thought it was impossible. However, the more he believed, the more others believed in him and rallied around him, and the more doors opened for him. And in the ‘twinkle’ of an eye, though he had only a short political resume, he became the first black president of the United States. But first he believed!

Only when you believe in yourself can you begin to take concrete steps towards those bold and audacious goals! And with each step you take, so will doors begin to open for you. But first you must believe!

Suggested To-do:

  • Identify any roadblocks and mindset barriers you feel is hindering your belief and stopping you from achieving your goals.
  • Search deep within for answers and alternatives to overcome these roadblocks, and also brainstorm with trusted and respected peers, mentors, coaches or experts who can help you.
  • Take action! Nothing happens without action. Read the Rule of Five for simple actions you can take daily to see your goals become reality.


Many times the answer is right in front of you, dig deep and make it happen!
