“Nothing is real if you don’t believe in who you are.”- Rocky Balboa, Rocky III (1982)
I wonder how many of us are comfortable being big dreamers. Now that we are al grown up, I am curious how many of us allow ourselves to go to that place of make believe in our mind where anything is possible and there are no limits. That place where all things turn out just the way we think they should and nothing is impossible.
Too often on the path to our personal success, we forget that we have to know where we are going, see ourselves there and then move forward. Sound silly? It isn’t. We do this kind of thing all the time.
Remember the last time you were getting ready to leave on that great vacation. Didn’t you say, at least once, “I can already see myself there.”
Being the person you want to be is no different. You must believe that is who you were meant to be and know that you can get there.
Today, I want to encourage you believe in who you are and who you are striving to be. Know that if you can’t see that person in yourself, nobody else is going to. Self confidence is not arrogance – it is the fuel for your journey.
Can’t believe it is March!
When the whirlwind that was February was finally over, I realized it was March. Sounds like no big deal – except I am now counting down to a year of Turn Around Tuesday.
That’s right! The first issue of Turn Around Tuesday was published the first Tuesday in April last year.
So, for the month of March, we a going through some of my favorite Rocky quotes and some other notable moments in history.
I couldn’t have done any of this without you. I really appreciate all the support and positive feedback.
