“You have got to think high to rise.”- Walter D. Wintle, poet
If you want to rise, to bring out the best in you, to challenge yourself, you must think to rise. You must challenge yourself. You do not have to do what other people are doing. You are free to choose your own path, to walk your own walk.
Do not let fear stop you from leaving your comfort zone. Remember why you are here.
Do not limit yourself. You have what it takes to win, to live, to do great things in your life.
Walter D. Wintle said, “Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man; but soon or late the man who wins is the one who thinks he can.” Never think you can’t do something. Of course, you can! But you have got to believe in yourself.
Believe in yourself. Believe that you have the power to get things done. Believe that you have the power to take charge of your life. Believe that you can create your own future. Just believe. Because you can’t get anything done without believing in yourself. People don’t believe in themselves because of their past failures. They are still living in the past. Do not do that, my friend. It is a waste of time. Remember that your time on this earth is limited, so use it wisely. Be honest with yourself. Can you really succeed without failures? Can you really do something new without mistakes? If we are real with ourselves, the answer is no. Why? Because failure is part of our lives. We are human beings. Instead of not believing in yourself, instead of doubting yourself, why not focus on what you can get done? Because if you want to change your life, if you want to get things done, if you want to get to the other side, you CAN’T stop believing in yourself. You must be your own cheerleader. Be your own best friend. Let failure be failure. Don’t let it bother you. Just learn from it. Let your mistakes be your teacher, not your enemy. If you don’t try, you can’t win. If you don’t stand, you can’t walk. If you don’t like your job, for example, don’t quit it, change how you think about your job. If you can do that, everything will change. Thoughts matter.
