In the midst of the English cricket team’s disastrous tour of Australia, former England captain, David Gower said, ”

“The moment you believe that what you’ve been talking about is actually going to happen, that’s the moment you gain the ability to make it happen more often.  Australia suddenly believed it could win – and that has made all the difference.”

I love this quote as it reminds me of the importance of self-belief in living a successful life.

If an athlete goes into a contest with the belief that she has done the work and has the talent to win, the chances of success are much higher.

If a job candidate goes into an interview confident and poised, the outcome is far more likely to be positive.

If a speaker stands in front of an audience with the knowledge that he has a compelling story to tell that can make a difference in the lives of others, he is much more likely to get his message across.

Whatever is it that you’re trying to achieve, the moment you believe, your chances of success increase dramatically.

So believe in yourself, look life in the eye, walk tall.

It could make all the difference.
