Believe you can and you’re halfway there!
Here is a new digital series for Your Go To Guy called “Favourite Quotes”. People who know me, know that I absolutely love quotes. Although a quote may not solve any particular business situation they do serve me well for inspiration and consultations. Feel free to browse this growing library of quotes and my thoughts as why I love the particular quote. Should you feel inspired to share your favourite quote with me, I would love to hear from you and why!
This quote by Theodore Roosevelt – Believe you can and you’re halfway there… I truly feel this quote serves a lot of meaning. Any business owner that I met that does not believe… in their product, in their success, in their journey for the most part have very little success. Tony Robbins explains that Belief influences potential which influences the actions you take which directly affects your results, and your results will affect your belief. This could go positively or negatively, and keeps circling over and over. Think about it!
Imagine meeting a surgeon that didn’t believe they could perform a surgery successfully, how would you feel? I would imagine not very confident in the surgeons abilities. I believe that your beliefs translate in your communications with everyone around you, including your customers. One of the best ways to get refocused is to go back to basics, go back to the beginning and try and remember “why” you started this in the first place. There are numerous advantages to knowing why you do you what you do. If you have never heard of the Golden Circle by Simon Sinek, I encourage you to watch the Ted Talks presentation called Start with why. When I do coaching / consulting, knowing and understanding your belief and your “why” is among the first few things I need to know in order to help you tell your story and help your business strive.
