Do you believe in me?
At the early hours of the morning today, I just felt my heart asked me this great question, "Do you believe in me?" I wonder in my heart immediately, how many hearts are asking the same questions that very minute; either asking themselves or asking their loved ones. Perhaps not verbally but deep down within. How many times have you looked in the eye of your spouse and have these words unspoken yet yelling loudly as though it would jump off your chest - "honey, do you believe in me?" How many times have you engaged yourself in the bathroom early in the morning, probing yourself deep within, "Samuel [put your name here], do you believe in me?"
Hardly can anything be done without believing in its possibility. In fact, whatever you do not believe in would remain undone by you. The reason why only one man comes out with an invention out of 6billion people on the planet is because the man would not give up until he sees what he believes come to life. I once heard the story of Mr Charles Goodyear - Goodyear Tyres [heard of that name before?]. Charles never started a company named Goodyear tyres neither did he know anything about a company with such nomenclature. However, Charles was a man who believed heating natural rubber and sulfur would create vulcanized rubber. The process which was later refined to become the vulcanizing process. Quoting a source...
"Goodyear was sure that he had the key to the intricate puzzle that he had worked over for so many years, he began at once to tell his friends about it and to try to secure capital, but they had listened so many times that his efforts were futile. For a number of years he struggled and experimented and worked along in a small way, his family suffering with himself the pangs of the extremest poverty. At last he went to New York and showed some of his samples to William Ryder, who, with his brother Emory, at once appreciated the value of the discovery and started manufacture."
Later Charles Goodyear began his own small factory where he was perfected his discovery and had to patent it in 1844. His discovery has led to the tyres on our roads today.
So what am I driving at? Until you believe in yourself, it'd be difficult to convince any other person to believe in you. Hello!!! Believe in yourself and even if others don't believe in you, it would be difficult to derail you or get you off track. As you know I love physics. Newton's first law of motion states, "every body remains in a state of rest unless acted upon by a force". Now, if your dream is the BODY at rest, your 'believe' or 'faith' is the FORCE that needs to act on it or else it would remain at that level zero! In other words, until you believe in your dreams and your capacity to birth forth the dream, it would forever remain a dream.
Beloved, it is high time you believed in yourself and your ability to birth forth your dream. If there is anything you can only do yourself, its your believing. No one can do that for you. Martin Luther King said, "Every man must do two things alone; he must do his own believing and his own dying." Indeed, you would be encouraged if people believe in you and your dreams but you first have to do the believing. It is pointless if people believe in you and you practically lack faith in yourself. You will remain at that state of rest until you believe in yourself! It's that easy! Even the bible that I love so much said, "'If You can?' All things are possible to him who believes." Believe and you'd be amazed at what you can achieve. Be all you can, BELIEVE all the way!
