Believe You Can and You’re Halfway There
Optimism and self-confidence can go a long way. As stated by Theodore Roosevelt, the youngest American president in history, “Believing is the first step to achieving”. This quote simply means that when you want to achieve something in life, the first thing you must do is to believe you that you have what it takes to achieve it. No matter how challenging the process gets, if we have faith in ourselves, we will always be motivated to move forward towards our goals.
When I was in law school, I realized that success is hard because it demands a lot of discipline and focus. Thus, we must be willing to make sacrifices to achieve what we want. There may be difficulties along the way, but we can reach our goals if we believe that we can. Motivation starts within ourselves. Once we have the right mindset and attitude, we can do anything that we set our heart and mind into.
This guiding principle also holds true in learning a new language or playing a new game. It is true that practice makes perfect. But what pushes us to do our best in everything is our inner drive and self-confidence. Never underestimate the power that your beliefs have. By believing in yourself, you get this inside power and determination. It is like an inner force that makes you take the necessary actions to reach your goals, no matter what. With this attitude, you can overcome all the adversities and challenges towards achieving success in life.
Having self-confidence is a remarkable trait of a good student and a leader. By developing your self-esteem and inner belief that you can, you also gain courage in everything that you do. I also share this kind of spirit and principle to my students as we play games like Fortnite or Among Us. If you have a winning attitude and if you believe in yourself, you are already halfway towards success. Of course, it is also equally important to pair confidence with hard work and effort.
