022 Bob Goff -- Sustain Belief


If your dream is big enough, it's going to take you months or maybe even years to see it realized. There's no question that you're going to have multiple moments of doubt, discouragement, or even a deep questioning about your capacity to keep going.

If your dream is going to see the light of day, then you're going to need to learn how to sustain belief.

It's different for everybody. You might need close friends to give you frequent reminders of encouragement. You might need to keep returning to the original reason why you had this ambition in the first place. Or you might need to establish a habit of writing down, again and again, the reasons why this matters to you.

No one else can manufacture belief for you- it's something you're going to have to do on your own.
