Seeing & Believing

“I’ll believe it when I see it” –pessimist mantra

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to see something to believe it. In fact seeing and believing go hand in hand when it comes to succeeding. Without sight we have no vision and without belief we have no goals. When we have one without the other we create self doubt, so you have to see and believe to succeed.

I know you have heard it before, but we are all perfectly designed to be exactly where we are in life. We have made the choices, created the motivation, and followed the ambition that has allowed us to get to where we are. If you are in an unfavorable position in life, it is your responsibility to change your choices, motivation, and ambition so that your design changes as well.

It is easy to see everything we want in life right in front of our faces and do nothing about it, to blame someone or something for holding us down, but the harsh reality of upward mobility in this society is that when we don’t move forward it is because of us, because of our lack of vision and belief.

Somewhere within our vision is an opportunity that will only come to fruition through our belief that it is possible. Accordingly, somewhere within our belief is the clarity to see things that will enhance our current circumstance. When vision and belief are muddied by our fears and doubts then we do not have the ability to move forward with the certainty it will take to overcome the challenges that we are sure to face.

If we can realistically evaluate our reality, trust in the potential we have to improve not only our surrounding, but ourselves as well, then will we create the vision and belief necessary to successfully create the design we believe we should possess. Success is not simple, but the traits and actions of those who are successful are time tested and true.

If you are to create a path for successful inner-personal design, look to believing in your visions and seeing what you believe, so that you can design the life you desire.
