Living each day much muchier

The magic of belief

We never encounter a mountain greater than doubt.Doubt is a deceiver. It is as a thief in the night.Remove it, do not let it come nigh your dwelling.

Frater Achad


Yesterday, I ran up a mountain. I know I live on an old, flat continent and the term ‘mountain’ should be read in that context, but still … it was 2km uphill and I was very proud of myself. I think the achievement was possible because, at the foot of the mountain, I said to myself “yeh, I can do that.” As I neared the top and was seriously running out of puff, I became the little engine that could. “It’s not that much further. How disappointed would I be if I gave up now?? Just stick it out.”

There’s a kind of magic in determination. There’s magic in belief.

If you tell yourself that you can, before you know it you’re at the top of the mountain. You’re on top of the world.
