People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success. – Norman Vincent Peale
I love this quote! To me it’s saying that in order for you to become remarkable, you have to believe you are remarkable. You need to believe in yourself! I’m taking a little writing course on Monday nights, and last night, the instructor had us rate ourselves as writers on a scale of 1 – 10 and hold up our numbers. They ranged from 4 to 7, and let me tell you, the instructor was very disappointed in our opinions of ourselves.
Some of it was a cultural thing, I think. We are not encouraged to think that we are all that and a slice of cake. But guess what, you are, I am, we all are. The instructor asked us how could we expect people to believe in our writing if we don’t believe in our own ability to write? She is right. I want to become a remarkable writer, and in order to become remarkable, I have to first believe that I am remarkable.
Believe in yourself. That is the first step in accomplishing anything else. Believe you are remarkable and you will become remarkable – or maybe, you’ll become even MORE remarkable!
