Song by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston
When You Believe – I chose this motivational song because of the lyrics about what’s possible when you believe in yourself. Often it’s difficult to truly grasp the idea that you can be the person you want to be, do the things you want to do, and have the things you want to have in life especially if you’ve had many failures in the past.
It can be easy to lose faith and start believing that you’re no one special and that the life you’ve dreamed about is reserved for the lucky and talented. You must realize that you have in you more potential than you think. The people who achieve their dreams are people who put everything into them. They are the ones who failed over and over, yet got back up, dusted themselves off, and kept going. It’s this level of determination that got them to where they are today.
The reason they keep going is because they believe they will eventually succeed even if there’s no proof that they will. You must have faith in yourself. You must continually believe in yourself. Too many times we look at successful people and think how lucky and talented they are and forget that they went through many setbacks and failures to get where they are today. Never let that belief in yourself die. For when you let it die, your dreams die as well, and without dreams, life is pointless.
