The incredible power of belief

How often do we fail to consider that whatever action we take comes from some belief in our own mind? If we believe we can, we can and if we believe we can’t, we can’t; even though we probably could. Paul J. Meyer, writing in The Dynamics of Personal Goal-Setting, had this to say, “Whatever you can vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and will enthusiastically act upon, must in evidently come to pass.”

This is a power that we should be constantly mindful of, lest we allow false ideas to taint our ability to achieve what is our very best. Without being braggadocios, we should always see ourselves for the good our lives represent.

Should we be bold?

Boldness is sometimes confused with zeal; however, boldness is or should be a positive behavior, while zeal is more likely to be negative. Our willingness to act boldly is often determined by our culture and the values and attitudes that drive our behavior. Being bold may require us to disagree with others, which is our prerogative. However, we can disagree without being disagreeable.
Many changes that have occurred in recent times, like workplace diversity, were brought about by people who were willing to act boldly with determination and consistency of effort. With positive outcome, boldness is a virtue.

Developing Insight

Insight may be defined as the understanding of a specific cause and effect within a specific context. Insight can be achieved when one consciously seeks to gain an understanding of an event or circumstances and its related nuances. In such situations, a person’s response can be considered insightful.

While insight may be related to intuition, the former is essentially conscious while intuition evolves from the unconscious without requiring conscious reasoning. Therefore, one may develop insight by gaining in-depth knowledge of a particular subject or situation.
