Tip#128: I Believe In You, Pt.1 - The Matrix

There are 4 words that can transform your heavy state of mind when you are feeling stuck. Those words are "I believe in you".

There are times when even motivators need motivators and recently I felt stuck and not sure how to deal with certain financial challenges. So I kept reminding myself that people can be your greatest resource, as Tony Robbins says, and have been meeting with business contacts who've always supported me.

One day when my self-esteem was feeling low and the weather was dark and slushy from melting snow I met with my writing guru (see tip#83: Fantastic Chain Reactions). Within an hour she helped me focus on some of my new income generating ideas and truly reminded me that I have great options that just needed to be implemented.

What truly touched me deeply was her parting words, "I believe in you". It sent a shot of light into me. I felt this unlimited strength. My self-esteem had been injected with this optimistic energy.

The Matrix (1999)

I was reminded about a core message from The Matrixmovie starring Keannu Reeves. There are specific moments where the main characters are going through challenging times and persevere when they express their belief in Reeves's character Neo. And when they say they believe in him you can feel their unshakeable faith. Click here for more: Tip#39: More About Believing

So remember those 4 powerful words, "I believe in you". Feel the energy that fills your soul when someone says this to you. Feel the positive energy that gets injected into you that becomes a deep reminder that you are not alone.

And share that energy by saying it to someone you truly believe in as well. Remember how it made you feel and pass on that positive energy. None of us are truly alone when we know that someone out there believes in us.

I came into work this morning feeling a bit down and then I went to your blog, and just the title 'I believe in you' completely lifted my spirits and gave me the energy to carry on following my dreams. Those words are incredibly powerful - thank you so much for using them Emmanuel and for giving me my Monday and Thursday morning boost of hope! Vicki, UK
