The Power of Believing in Yourself

Last week, I gave you some lessons from “The Best Ever” and I left off one very important one that was worth bringing back up and mentioning again here today.

Being Bold and Confident.

Here’s a very important success secret: people who are certain of outcomes get their desired outcome a lot more often than people who are doubtful.

Life, you, your team and customers, more often than not, fulfill the expectations that have been given.

If you expect to lose or be disappointed or for it to be difficult – then guess what – you are going to be right. And vice versa.

You don’t become World Champ and remain undefeated by walking around thinking that you might get beat today or that you are sometimes the best and sometimes just mediocre.

I find in business that the people who are the most successful not only expect to be but they have complete conviction that they are the right person for the job.

I relate this to star athletes. The ones who make all the money are the ones who score the most points – how and why – because they are the ones with the ball. They want the game on their shoulders.

People, business people, sales people, any people in your organization who shy away from this type of responsibility, not only won’t do well, they will actually hurt you. Your culture must be one in which each team member believes unequivocally about the value you provide and that you are the best for your customers, clients and patients.

There can be no doubt.

When I interview people I usually ask the question, “What are you the best at?” And if I get silence, it couldn’t be a louder answer.

You have to believe you are best at something otherwise why would we want you. Anyone can be ‘just okay’ at anything at all.

I will leave you with this: there may never be another boxer like Floyd Mayweather and some could argue just how great a boxer he was. But that’s the thing… it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks; it’s just that he truly believes he is: The Best Ever.

What you expect and really believe, usually happens.

There are a number of lessons from last week and this week. You can find inspiration, self-reflection, principles of peak performance and business success all over the place. You should make a practice of this.
