The real difference between achieving your potential and coming up short is belief. You need to believe in yourself. More importantly, though is to believe in others. If others feel inspired and motivated because of your presence, you will always be welcome, you will always be wanted and your potential will be maximized. When you look at people (including yourself) through the lens of ability rather than limitations you will be able to create breakthroughs in everyone’s performance. When you believe in someone you are showing trust. Trust creates security and power. We all perform better when others believe in us more than we initially believe in ourselves, we rise to that belief. Belief can turn into faith as the skills, desire, and passion increase.
