Descartes once said “I think, therefore, I am.” Even though we see this phrase thrown around a lot, many of us don’t really understand what it means.
What Descartes meant was, the world as he sees it is being shaped as he thinks about it. This profound thought suggests that your world is however you want to make it. Your beliefs and your mind can overcome anything the physical world and your circumstances throw at you.
This is what really matters. A simpler way of asking this question is, “Are you going to let your circumstances decide your actions?” Leaders are not born in the absence of hardship. They experience challenges just like the rest of us do. The difference is, they meet them head on instead of bowing to them. They know they have the power to change the world.
When you have faith in yourself, you can cast doubts aside, shape your present and create your future. Such confidence leads to an unstoppable mindset and puts you on the path toward personal and professional success.
