Belief - Reform or Kill


On my last post on The Looser within you I tried to cover how the looser within you hurts your success right when you have won... however I thought it would be of help if I try to cover the important aspect of this looser that sits in you... Belief.. the word always had different meaning and is taken in different perspective.. but I believe the looser within you can only arise in you when there is a lack of this noun Belief...

Its the belief that can let this Looser within you be in a dead state and its the belief that can help you never let the looser inside you ever ever get its head up... I remember the first match that Stuart Broad played after the famous 6 sixes in one cricket over by Yuvraj Singh ... he had belief not only in himself but in his actions... no wonder it got him the Man of the Match award in the last Ashes win..
Don't go far very recent comeback of Rahul Dravid is an example of having comeback only because of strong belief...

However there are 2 modes of belief .... 1 is the self belief and the other is the Team belief... of course if each member of the Team if believes in himself and the Team the Team belief is active... and that is what would make the Team succeed. Eventually there are also cases where individuals may not believe in themselves but they see the team around roaming with the strongest belief... The strongest belief that generates enough confidence in them to succeed...

Individual beliefs gets you closer to success , Team beliefs get you closer to revolutions and miracles... If you think positive and feel strong about the Team that sits around you... it would be you along with this same team that can change the direction of Fate...





I remember when I was a part of the cricket team for my college, university and of course the club cricket... it was belief that we were good cricketers, we were the best in the lot, We could win anything and anyone, We were Invincible... Yes this belief always bought us back in the game.. always. We must have lost several matches, tons of them.. but we still believed we played the best cricket and that always showed in the game....

At the same time I have seen the bestests of individuals and Teams loosing greater grounds because they stop believing themselves, they stop generating the zeal of belief that leads the path to success...If you have the slightest doubt in your mind about your Team or yourself its the beginning of your end, and I am sure you wont want to begin your end...

Moral of the Story :

1. Keep your hopes up
2. People who don't believe in you or your teams would never be with you, the ones who do would stay with you always
3. A belief can never be killed completely, it can either be turned positive or negative
4. Have no place for those in your life who don't believe in you
5. Always ensure that you believe in your abilities not by showing it off, but by grooming it in the best possible way
