I read a story about a man who was used in an experiment. He was a convict on death row and because he was already scheduled to die, he figured he had little to lose if the experiment actually killed him. An incision was made on his leg by which blood was supposed to leave his body all night until the experiment was over in the morning. His blood dripped into a container that was placed by his leg just under the incision. He did not make it. In the morning what the doctors found was that he had died because of blood loss. You might say that that is an obvious assessment but the story has a twist to it. You see ,the was never a cut that was made on his leg, the doctors just made it so that it felt that was. The sound of his blood dripping into the container they placed near is leg was actually the sound water being dripped into a container near by. Because he believed he was bleeding out, his body responded accordingly.
How many times have you convinced yourself of something that later on turned out to be the opposite of what you thought? How often have you been utterly petrified about carrying out a task that later turned out to be not even half as terrifying as you made it out to be? We as humans are creatures of habit. One of those habits being a particular fashion of thinking. We go along believing certain things without really testing out if the findings we have on something are fact or assumption.
In my life I have found that the little I can’t do, if at all the is anything, once I put my mind to it. Yes it is very important to have people believing in you and every such thing, however, it is extra advantageous to believe in oneself. Self belief has given us the Nelson Mandelas, the Oprah Winfres and the Kenneth Kaundas of this world. The only reason your name has not appeared on the list of the great people who have lived, is because you have not chosen to stand up and be counted. If you are reading this, then the is YET hope for you. Cultivate an air of self belief around yourself that will evoke willingness in people around you to do the same. Be your own cheerleader. Be your own motivational speaker. Go out there and be great.
