In the words of Eric Thomas, “The greats think differently. The greats see differently. The greats have a different world view. The greats, they approach the game in a totally different way.”
To truly become great you first have to believe you are, you have to believe you deserve to accomplish your goals, you deserve to realize your dreams and you become what you believe. You have to create the mindset within you to become great.
This is true in any situation, whether it be in the gym, on the field or shooting down the slope a unimaginable speeds. First you have to believe you can do it before you can achieve greatness.
We all can realize our dreams. I was once asked the question, “Are you controlling your thoughts, or are your thoughts controlling you?” So often in life you let yourself become a victim of circumstance, but are you a victim or are you willing to take control and make the best of any given situation?
The next time you are faced with a challenge stop and think about what you are thinking, are you looking at it as an obstacle or an opportunity? It makes all the difference in the outcome. Will you take advantage of the opportunity or be hindered by the obstacle.
We all have dreams and we can all accomplish them given we can find it within to recognize our ability to achieve greatness that we are designed for. If you want to make your dreams come true you have to have that control, you have to stay focused if you want to succeed.
There is a difference between being average and great, you have to believe in yourself to achieve greatness.
