THOUGHT OF THE DAY
“There is a difference between Wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be belief, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief. Closed minds do not inspire faith, courage, and belief.”

To BELIEVE in yourself...  I think it is easy to get stuck in the negative - pity me thinking - and struggle with believing we can accomplish great things. We can feel overwhelmed and not know how to move forward on what we want. I know I am guilty of this and have eluded to it recently. I think it is something we all struggle with - especially in this very personal blogging community.  It is easy to get caught up in comparisons and the lack of courage to do our own thing. This idea of BELIEVING makes me think of a quote recently from the NBA finals, when LeBron responded to a reporter's question and said that he was the “best player in the world”.  This is a bold statement.  I do not think we should go around boosting that we are the best - but on the flip side - we need to believe in ourselves.  LeBron believes he is the best and he plays like he is the best, which I believe has a lot to do with his attitude. (He has also been blessed with amazing athletic ability.)  Contrary to boasting though, it is best to display a humble attitude with an internal belief in our abilities.  Internally, we need to BELIEVE we can accomplish great things through the One that strengthens us and has given us our unique abilities.
