I know I can do nearly anything I set my mind to as long as I believe in myself. I have a level of confidence that transcends any fears my mind conjures up, and an action mindset that encourages me to seek solutions to challenges.

My belief in myself reminds me of “The Little Engine That Could.” In that story the little engine defied all odds and saved the day when the bigger, stronger engines gave up the challenge. When the going got tough, the little engine just told himself, “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…” He could because he believed in himself.

I’m like that little engine! When I encounter a challenge, my mantra is “I think I can, I think I can, I think I can…” And because I believe I can, I succeed!

When I set a goal, I also set myself up for success with that goal. I make a plan detailing all the tasks I need to complete in order to achieve it. Those tasks become my easily achievable mini-goals. Once I have my plan in hand, all I need to do is tackle my mini-goals – one at a time – until success is mine!

It’s a fail-proof plan and I know that with certainty. Believing in myself is easy with my mini-goal strategy.

I also know that challenges are only bumps in the road. They can delay me slightly, but they cannot stop me. I believe that a viable solution is always possible – it’s just waiting to be discovered!

Today, I look forward to a day filled with success, knowing that my mantra can get me through anything.
