You’re going to get a kick out of this…

One of my favourite songs is Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston’s ‘When You Believe’. It’s from the musical The Prince of Egypt (Yes, I’m a serious Musical nerd). 
It’s a full on dramatic ballad.

I love singing along… in fact it’s my #1 song in my itunes at the moment… along side Defying Gravity from Wicked. I spent my childhood dancing, singing and acting – dripping with sequins…

Here’s the embarrassing photo to prove it… can you pick me?

What I really wanted to share today was some of the lyrics from this song…

“There can be miracles when you believe. Though hope is frail, it’s hard to kill. Who knows what miracles you can achieve, when you believe. Somehow you will, you will when you believe.”

A belief is a sense of certainty about what something means. Our beliefs are created over time through our experiences and shaped by the people around us.

A belief is a filtration system of what we believe to be possible.

It’s a possibility filter.

If our beliefs are not aligned with what we want… it’s likely not gonna happen for us.

We all have beliefs…

We have beliefs around friendships, relationships, careers…

How successful we can be,

What our family should look like,

Our identity,

The world around us,



Just to name a few…

If you’re not getting the results you want, it’s likely that your actually getting the result based on your belief about that thing. 

I know personally, one of the beliefs that was holding me back “I’m too young… why would people want to listen to me?” And “If people don’t like what I say, they won’t like me”. These beliefs were ‘protecting’ me from experiencing fear. The fear of not being loved, fear of not belonging, fear of failure. No wonder at the time I was going nowhere!

So, what do our beliefs need to be to create an extraordinary life. To get the results that we actually WANT?

Here’s a few I swear by;

  1. What ever happens… I am responsible. The good, the bad and the ugly.

2. We don’t need to know all the steps to get started. This is the ready, fire, aim principle. (If you havn’t heard about this one I’ll write about it in an upcoming post – game changer)

3. Work is play. If you have fun at work, you’ll never work at day in your life… someone great said that I’m sure!

4. There is no lasting success without commitment. You gotta commit… it’s that simple. Draw a line in the sand – you’re in it to win it here!

5. There is no such thing as failure… only outcomes. If you try to avoid failing, you ain’t never getting anywhere honey!

6. There is always a way & there is always another level. Take a leaf from Alberts book, he says he found 999 (or some crazy number) ways NOT to invent the lightbulb… before he invented it.

7. All I need is within me now. You’ve got the goods. It’s time to spread your wings!
Our beliefs have an extremely profound impact on every aspect of our lives. 

There are SO many more amazingly empowering beliefs you can take on to achieve the results you desire… the question is, are you going to do the work to change them?
