There is an indispensable tool for anyone seeking to achieve their objectives. Those who haven’t got it are doomed to eternal frustration and failure. Whether you are trying to manifest abundance in your life, heal a physical ailment, or connect with your intuition, the key to unlocking your full potential is… BELIEF.
It sounds so ordinary, doesn’t it? And you’ll probably retort that of course you have belief. You wouldn’t attempt any project without believing it could be achieved. But, is it the right kind of belief? Unshakeable? A deep-down conviction that, no matter what, you’re going to succeed? Or is your belief a fair-weather friend who fades away just when you need their support most.
So, your first step to success is to believe in your belief – that it will stay with you whatever life throws at you. OK, now you know what kind of belief you must have here are some quotes from battle-hardened experts who know how important it is: “Believe you can and you’re halfway there” – Theodore Roosevelt.
This famous quote from the 26th President of the United States encapsulates the power of belief to propel us forward towards our goals. When we believe in ourselves and our abilities, we are more likely to take action and persevere in the face of obstacles.
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve” – Napoleon Hill. Napoleon Hill, author of the classic self-help book Think and Grow Rich, understood the importance of belief in achieving success. He asserted that our thoughts have the power to shape our reality, and that by visualizing our desired outcomes, and truly believing in their possibility, we can manifest them into existence.
“Belief is the ignition switch that gets you off the launching pad” – Denis Waitley. Denis Waitley, author and motivational speaker, uses a powerful metaphor to describe the role of belief in achieving our objectives. Just as an ignition switch is necessary to start a rocket launch, belief is the starting point for any endeavor.
These quotes from celebrities are just a few that emphasize the importance of belief. But why is it so crucial to achieving our goals?

If you don’t believe, nothing will happen. Or even worse, something will happen but it’ll be the opposite of what you want! Belief, or faith if you like, is indispensable if you want to achieve your objectives. So, if you desire to tap into, say, the psychic secrets of the Universe, you’ve got to believe the Universe has got psychic secrets. And then you must believe that they are accessible to you. And then you must believe you are worthy of receiving those secrets and that you are capable of handling them.
Belief can overcome the doubts and fears that hold us back. When we believe in ourselves and our abilities, we are less likely to be deterred by negative thoughts and external obstacles enabling us to focus our energy on achieving our goals and manifesting our desires.
But there’s more to it than that. If there was ever a ‘secret’ to gaining success it’s this: By believing with all our heart that we will achieve our objective we’re handing our trust over to the Universe and the Universe sets things in motion for us and the Universe will never let us down.
That special kind of belief helps us to open our minds to new possibilities. When we believe that there is more to the world than what we can see, hear and touch, we are more likely to be open to the possibility of experiences outside of our daily normality. For instance, this openness allows us to receive psychic information more easily.
Of course, belief alone is not enough – it must be combined with action and effort to produce results. A well-known saying is: God (the Universe) helps those who help themselves. But without belief, even the most skilled and talented psychic practitioner may struggle to achieve their objectives. Why am I talking about psychic practitioners? Because, if you believe that you are connected to the Universal Consciousness, you are calling on powers beyond our five senses and that is the key to mental, physical and emotional breakthroughs. And that makes you a psychic practitioner (perhaps at this stage an apprentice one).
“I truly believe that everything that we do and everyone that we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks or wait for some miracle to come knocking at our door.” So said American actress, singer, writer, and producer Marla Gibbs, best known for her role as the sassy maid Florence Johnston on the popular 1970s sitcom, The Jeffersons.
Throughout her career, she credited her success to her unwavering belief in herself and her abilities, and her willingness to trust the Universe and take risks. Her quote emphasizes the power of belief and faith in achieving goals and finding meaning in the people and experiences that cross our paths.
This reminds me of something I should have told you earlier in this article. That is to tap into the powers of our intuition (aka the Universe) we need to MAKE A DECISION TO NOTICE the response. If we don’t look and listen we won’t see or hear anything!
So, summing up, if you are seeking to tap into the power of psychic abilities to achieve your goals, remember the importance of belief. Visualise your desired outcomes, affirm your belief in their possibility, take action towards your objectives with confidence and determination and stay alert for responses. With belief as your starting point, there is no limit to what you can achieve in partnership with the Cosmic Consciousness.
If I still haven’t convinced you, would you believe the word of America’s best-known media executive, actress, talk show host, television producer and philanthropist Oprah Winfrey? Her guiding philosophy is, “You become what you believe.”
