Belief is a huge phenomenon. Everyone interprets it according to their experiences but the unchanging fact remains that belief holds the power to change. It holds the power to empower, transform and unleash success in the lives of those who believe. It can change the world.

Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” The power of your belief can help you achieve anything. Michael Jordan, who is one of the greatest basketball players of the century faced rejection in high school. He was considered as a failure and was pushed out of the basketball team. He didn’t stop there but continued to believe in himself and the power of his belief made him a basketball legend.

As Michael puts it, “I have missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I have lost almost 300 games. On 26 occasions I have been entrusted to take the game winning shot, and I missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

If you believe in negativity, that will be the reality you will witness. However, if you believe in positivity, reality would be so much bigger and better.

The power of your belief can do more than you can believe right now. Here are 5 things the power of your belief can do for you:

1.  It can kill negativity

Negativity is a huge topic to deal with. Negativity can kill positivity if you let it. For instance, when trainers train elephants, they chain one of its legs to the tree. Gradually they reduce the length of the chain until all that’s holding the elephant is a mere string. But you’ll notice that the elephant won’t move like it would before. So what’s restraining the elephant? Its mind. It has now believed that it can’t do anything when it feels like being tied to something. That’s how our minds can control us. If you let your mind to control you negatively, it can keep you restrained for the rest of your life. If you let negativity work through your system, it will restrain your will to do better in life. You’ll stop growing. Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I shall have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it, even if I may not have it at the beginning.”

Believe that you can fly and you will.

2.  It can change your perception

The way you look at the world is what you will experience from the world. If you look at the world through a positive filter, things will start seeming positive while wearing negative filters will colour everything negatively. Wear black glasses and everything around you will appear in the shade of black while wearing any other colour would let you view your surroundings in the same colour.

Believe things will go right and all will be well. This attitude can hugely impact your journey towards success.

3.  It will help you communicate better

Believing in something makes you confident about that particular aspect and communicating your belief will be easier. Strong beliefs will help you feel better about yourself which will automatically translate into how you relate with yourself and others. This will also help you attract people who are passionate and share similar outlook towards belief. Attracting people who possess the power of belief will only help you increase the positive energy around you.

Confidence will help you communicate better and this is possible only if you truly believe in what you believe.

4.  Your belief will help you create value systems to influence others

If you truly believe in yourself and that good things will come to you, it will. This is positive thinking that you can use to influence others towards believing that life can be great if one truly believe that good things happen.

Others can gain inspiration from you to be better and believe in their dreams. Begin a chain of individuals who are passionate enough to pursue their beliefs and can make the world a better place to live in. There’s a joy in giving inspiration that supersedes other forms of happiness.

5.   Makes dreams come true

Be the designer and creator of the dream you want to make reality. Believing in yourself and good things will lay the foundation to a dream that’s blurring but could be a reality if you constantly work towards it. Believe that dreams come true. Belief is what makes dreams and desires find their way into your life.

Change your belief from negativity and lead it towards positivity. See the difference the power of your belief can have on your life.

Your beliefs are what make you. In simple terms, you are what your belief is. Believe in everything good. Believe in success. Believe in God. Believe. Just believe.
