What is it about belief that makes it so powerful? Last night, I watched Tim Tebow as he rallied his team to yet another come-from-behind, overtime victory and thought to myself…WOW…this guy just makes you believe. There is something about him, especially in the fourth quarter or last drive of the game, that just seems to instill belief in those that watch him and those that play alongside him. It’s almost magical.
There are some people, whose very presence, just makes you believe. Imagine if your belief in something was so strong, that you could instill hope and faith in the hearts of those around you. I’m sure you know of a few people like that, but why can’t it be you?
You don’t have to be a super-star, with a national sports platform, to inspire others to believe in themselves, or someone else for that matter. You just have to believe that what you believe in is worth believing. Everyday, we all cross paths with individuals that could use an encouraging word, a pep talk, a pat on the back…or butt if you’re a football fan…we just have to be willing to look for those moments and do it. At work, or at home, there are loved ones that need someone they can look to in order to inspire them to believe in themselves…and God for that matter…to strengthen their faith and spark hope in their lives.
You can be that person. Why not? Because if you don’t someone else will, and maybe the beliefs they instill in them will be the wrong beliefs.
So, what about you? Who in your life do you need to instill a little belief into? Who around you needs your encouragement or needs you to say, “You can do it”?
