“To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream: not only plan, but also believe.” Anatole France
I have seen activity plans put together by new professionals that are obviously going to fail, because they did not believe they could make the 100 cold calls a day or send the 1,000 emails a week they predicated their sales projections on.
I have seen people claim they would do a marathon in six months but it was obviously not happening because the first non-ideal day they had excuses to not run. Because they didn’t believe in it.
I have seen failures over and over not because of failure of capability but because of lack of faith, a lack of belief. Weak spirits never succeed while a weak body can.
Plan, but then execute. Dream, but do. And most importantly believe. Believe that it can be done and if it can be done, it can be done by you. Then you can accomplish the great things.
