In the Beginning, Do You Believe You Can?

"It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than a anything else, will affect it's successful outcome".  -William James

I believe William James statement is accurate.

"When you know you can at the beginning, you will in the end." -Ross Hill

You are way more likely to win when you first believe in yourself and believe in what you are doing. You have to believe it at the beginning for it is the only way you will overcome the discouragement of the defeat(s) that come along the journey to success.  Having a positive attitude at the beginning gives you the stamina to keep going when you want to quit.

Life has taught me that how we view challenges is the one attitude that separate the successful from the unsuccessful. It is most easily seen when we look back at great athletes and great teams. When I was young UCLA had the greatest college basketball program in the nation. They believed they could win. It was true of Roger Stauback the famous quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.  It was true of Tiger Woods when he ruled the PGA. They believed they were going to win long before they competed on the field.

This attitude, this belief, is the magic ingredient that separates the winners from the pack.

If you want success, you have to believe in yourself and your task before you get started.
