Can you BElieve that a huge metal tube filled with over 200 people, cargo, plus luggage, equaling over 875,000 pounds or more can speed down a runway, catch some wind and stay in the air high above the clouds, for as long as 16 hours or more? If you never knew what a plane was or ever been on one you still wouldn’t BElieve it. It didn’t stop the Wright Brothers from believing their dreams of flying. It didn’t stop the manufactures and designers from Believing that they could make the Wright Brothers dream even bigger by creating passenger planes. Guess what, if you have been on a plane ride, you Believed too and trusted the creation of someone else. Strangers right? I mean do you know how an airplane is built? Do you know every person who has built a plane? Do you know how planes work? You don’t right? You don’t know ALL of these things, yet you Believed in them. No one said you had to Believe and really had NOTHING TO PROVE, just a dream and talent and the ability to BElieve in the unknown.
If you can BElieve in others dreams, shouldn’t YOU BElieve in your own? YES you SHOULD!
There is a saying that “seeing is Believing”. In some cases, this rings true to me. In many ways, however, I disagree with this. Believing is simply having faith!
Faith is; Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
YOU are someone and something.
Faith is; a strongly held BElief or theory.
YOU have ideas and theories and TALENT. A PURPOSE! YOU Matter!
YOU must first BElieve in yourself! Expect no validation from anyone else. Except their opinions as just feedback, which is simply not based on anything else but their feelings and understanding. Once you BElieve and achieve they will see or feel/experience the results and they too will BElieve in you.
Other times it doesn’t have to be visibly seen in order to be Believed. A thought cannot be seen, but many conversations we listen and share thoughts and ideas and before physically achieving the goal WE BElieve in them, enough to attempt them. This is BElieving in the comfort zone.
Then there is BElieving in a higher power. In my case I BElieve in God. I have never seen God. Yet I feel God through the creation of this world. My conscience, talking to myself, debating with myself, I BElieve is God’s voice. BElieve in a higher power. If you can BElieve in something you don’t physically see, why do you not BElieve that YOU were created for something great and trust in yourself and your HIGHER POWER to make dreams a reality?
There have been many times when I did BElieve in myself…….TO FAIL! Thinking I could never achieve that, or conquer this. I was right! Because I didn’t BELieve I could, I either didn’t attempt it or I did attempt it but with fear causing me to not give my all or quit all together. The times I did BElieve in the passion I had for something I accomplished and surprised myself. Not knowing if I was what a director was looking for in a show, or if I was the person deserving of passion and love from another person of interest, to not knowing if I was mentally or physically strong enough to get through a challenge. Some of my dreams have come true. Many have not. BUT I HAVE THE CHOICE and the ability to BElieve and then ACHIEVE! YOU DO TOO!
Just as WE BElieve the worst, it is important to BElieve the BEST!
BElieve in yourself, your dreams, your talents. BElieve in others to uplift, remember they matter and we need their talents and dreams to be met in order for it to domino affect the world. BElieve in your higher power (suggestion, GOD). This is important to BElieve something greater than you, can see you through this journey. I mean you didn’t create the world right? Something greater did. You’re a residence in this great creation. If you can’t BElieve in the unknown, my opinion is you can’t BElieve in the things you currently don’t SEE for yourself.
Do not fall short of your purpose, goals and dreams simply because you did NOT BElieve in them or because others doubted you. Make Believers out of non BElievers by simply BElieving. BElieve!
BElieve, BE Free, BE YOUtiful… BE!
