Almost every single successful person in life has believed that they will be successful.
A little story that really drives home my feeling about this is the story of Roger Bannister breaking the 4 minute mile back in the 1950's.
Did you know that after he managed that "impossible" feat, 37 other people also did it within 2 years!
Why? Well because they all knew it could be done because Bannister had done it.
Before that, no one thought it was possible to run that fast. Mentally, people thought it was impossible. As a result, not a single human had run a mile in under 4 minutes before the 1950's.
Then suddenly when people saw it was possible after Bannister did it, 37 more athletes did it within the next 2 years!
What had changed? They were the same athletes, with the same training. They just had a different mindset.
That is the power of the human mind, and why in my opinion success is 98% mental.
Just wanted to share my thoughts.
