“If you stumble about believability, what are you living for? Love is hard to believe, ask any lover. Life is hard to believe, ask any scientist. God is hard to believe, ask any believer. What is your problem with hard to believe?”
Yann Martel, Life of Pi
I just really liked the concepts and ideas behind this; putting hope into things when they seem tough.
“To be a great champion, you must believe you are the best. If you’re not, pretend you are.”
I know I’m the sort of person who really lets nerves and fear get to me. Someone explained to me that if you go into something with the belief and conviction that you CAN instead of that you can’t, the likelihood is that you WILL be able to do it. I guess its all positive reinforcement to yourself.
