It seems like the world conspires in your favor daily. Yesterday I learned about achievements. And today, I got to learn more about the key to achievements.
Aside from setting your mind to achieve something, you have to actually believe that you can achieve it. That’s the way it works.
Self-belief and Determination births achievements
You cannot just only want it so bad. You gotta believe that you will get it. Only then will you achieve it.
In the past, I have wanted a lot of things. I wanted to do so much. I wanted to achieve so much. But then it occurred to me today that I didn’t achieve those things because I didn’t believe I could.
When I was in school, I wanted to finish with a first-class. I knew I was smart enough to. But the truth is, I didn’t believe deep down that I was capable of achieving a first-class. And so my GPs every semester didn’t translate to the first class I wanted to achieve.
Then the time came when a friend consistently encouraged me and I gradually started to believe that I could achieve a first-class GPA. With this new belief reframed in my mind, I actually made GPAs of nothing less than 4.5 till I finished school.
But as life would have it, I ended up with a second class upper. I didn’t start believing in my ability to achieve a first-class early enough to actually make it. But I sure did learn from the experience. I know now that with self-belief, I can achieve anything I set my mind to.
Don’t wait too long to start believing in yourself and your ability to achieve great things in life
