There can be miracles
When you believe
Though hope is frail, it’s hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve?
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe
~ From When You Believe by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston in the movie Prince of Egypt
I love movies that remind me of all things bright and beautiful. It’s so easy to ‘know’ that there’s good, that there’s hope…I’ve had faith since I can remember. At the same time I know from experience that it is just as easy to feel disconnected from it, and during this holiday season I’m sharing this to remind myself and others of the blessings of a little more belief. ❤️?
??Belief is a powerful force that can shape our lives in profound ways. It can give us the courage to pursue our dreams, the strength to overcome challenges, and the resilience to persevere in the face of adversity.
The benefits of belief are numerous, long lasting, and far-reaching. Here are just a few of the ways in which a little more belief can enrich our lives:
✅ Increased Motivation: When we believe in ourselves and our abilities, we are more likely to be motivated to take action and achieve our goals.
✅ Enhanced Self-Esteem: Believing in ourselves boosts our self-esteem and makes us feel more confident in our abilities.
✅ Greater Resilience: When we believe in ourselves, we are more likely to bounce back from setbacks and failures.
✅ Improved Health: Studies have shown that belief can have a positive impact on our physical health.
While there are times belief may seem like an elusive state of mind, it is something that we can all cultivate or strengthen with practice. Here are a few tips for cultivating belief:
➡️ Focus on Your Strengths: Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. Make an effort to focus on your strengths and build on them.
➡️ Visualize Success: Take some time each day to visualize yourself achieving your goals. This will help to keep your dreams alive and motivated.
➡️ Surround Yourself with Positive People: The people we spend time with can have a significant impact on our beliefs. Surround yourself with positive people who believe in you and your dreams.
In addition to the tangible benefits mentioned above, belief can also bring about a number of intangible blessings. These blessings include:
? A sense of purpose: When we believe in something greater than ourselves, we find a sense of purpose that can guide our lives.
? A sense of hope: Belief gives us hope for the future and helps us to believe that anything is possible.
? A sense of peace: When we can let go of our doubts and fears, we find a sense of peace that comes from knowing that we are on the right path.
Belief is a gift that we should all cherish. When we nurture our belief in ourselves and our dreams, we open ourselves up to a life filled with possibilities, purpose, and peace.
