The saying goes: If you think you can’t, you won’t. If you think you can, YOU WILL.
These words are powerful. Whether you're working at content marketing or you're a freelance writer, or whatever it is you do, your thoughts can control whether or not you are successful.
The guest post below was written for the copywriter, but the message is valid for everyone and every industry.
You must be actively pursuing your goals. I can't remember where I read it, but motion creates motion. And, having confidence in yourself can help you overcome monumental obstacles.
So, don't stand there wondering, Open That Door!
An article by Will Newman (American Artists and Writers), "A Little Boy, Broken Ice, and You, demonstrates the power of belief, of 'must do, so can do.'
Newman tells the story of a young boy named Chris. On a cold winter day, Chris and his friend played on a frozen lake. Unfortunately, as can happen on frozen lakes, the friend fell through.
With no one around, it was left up to Chris to save his friend. He tried and tried to pull him out of the icy water, but nothing worked. Then his spotted a small grove of trees. He ran to them and grabbed a large branch.
Chris dragged the large branch back to where his friend had gone under the ice. He repeated banged that branch on the ice until he broke through. He was then able to save his friend.
By that time, paramedics had arrived, along with other people.
The question: Did they believe that little boy was capable of running with a branch bigger than he was in enough time to say his friend?
No one believed Chris, except one man. He spoke up and said, "Of course he could do it. There wasn't anyone around to tell him he couldn't."
This is the whole point of this post - if you believe you can do something and take action in that direction, you'll accomplish what you set out to do.
