Believe in Yourself Everything is possible in this world By M. Ramakrishna Sayee We all have possibilities we don’t know about. We can do things we don’t even dream we can do. - Dale Carnegie People often doubt their capabilities and competencies without realizing their hidden potential. When faced with failure, they often limit their minds and rush to the conclusion that they will not be able to achieve anything in future. They often think that most of the successful people are gifted with great traits and that is the reason why they are successful. The truth is that we all have a huge potential, but rarely do we recognize and utilize it. At times, pre-conditioned mindsets and phobias prevent us from achieving success. These are all mental barriers. Great people are not great just because they have extraordinary qualities; they are ordinary people with extraordinary will powers, perseverance and they know what they are good at and explore their passions to achieve the impossible in this world. Be leaders without limitations When we look at several great leaders who achieved a lot, it becomes clear that they removed their mental barriers by looking at the positive Interactive side of things. They converted their weaknesses into strengths. For instance, Alexander the Great was of average height but he occupied a towering position in the world and showed that height is not a limiting factor for achieving success. Similarly, Abraham Lincoln hit successive lows in his life in various spheres—family life, business, politics and law—but managed to become the first Republican President of India at the age of 52. He was a self-educated man who showed to the world that neither one’s origin nor any physical limitations and failures can prevent one from becoming an achiever. When we view the life of Helen Keller, we get to know that she was deaf, dumb and blind. However, she came to be known as a great writer. Beethoven was deaf but he composed the finest music in the world. The founder of Hero Honda was often sick and suffered several setbacks initially. However, he learnt to excel as a legendary entrepreneur. The list is endless. All these leaders converted their weaknesses into strengths. Therefore, don’t look at your weaknesses but look at your strengths and utilize them to the hilt.
