We must climb over the rocks of unbelief, pass around the barriers of doubt and plunge into the stream with faith.

Know that nothing can hinder you but yourself. If you believe you can, you can.

Know that nothing can hinder you but yourself. If you believe you can, you can.

Ernest Holmes

If your desire is strong enough, it doesn’t matter what your beliefs are. If you have a desire that is strong enough, that desire will be the dominant vibration, and it will over-ride any other vibration that you have.

Abraham-Hicks, in Atlanta, GA on September 13, 1997

You know what the issue is with this world? Everyone wants a magical solution to their problem, and everyone refuses to believe in magic.

Alice in Wonderland

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.

Saint Augustine

Sometimes, I don’t know what I believe until I have to voice it. But louder than my voice, are my actions. Before I am even consciously aware of what I believe deep down, the obvious is stated in my day-to-day behaviours. Observers may see more clearly, what I barely acknowledge in myself.

Annie Zalezsak, Nov 18, 2015

Faith is the bird that feels the light when the dawn is still dark.

Rabindranath Tagore

When it isn't distorted, belief is one of the strongest forces for uniting people in a common purpose and vision. ... The most uniting belief is that humanity is one family.

Spoken by Deepak Chopra, day 15 of "Become What You Believe" Oprah & Deepak 21-Day Meditation Experience

Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother.

Kahlil Gibran

Scripture says, “Blessed are those who look for, who long for, and who expect His victory.” Believe that today is your day.

Joel Osteen

If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.

Thich Nat Hanh

One person with a belief is equal to ninety-nine who have only interests.

John Stuart Mill

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.

Mother Teresa

Your action has nothing to do with your abundance! Your abundance is a response to your vibration. Of course, your belief is part of your vibration. So if you believe that action is part of what brings your abundance, then you’ve got to unravel that.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Chicago, IL on April 24, 1999

The only thing that stands between you and your dream is the will to try and the belief that it is actually possible.

Joel Brown

When you say “Yes” to something, you include something you do want in your experience. When you say “No” to something, you include something you don’t want in your experience.

Abraham-Hicks, from the workshop in Orlando, FL on Saturday, February 15th, 1997

Beliefs can evolve according to where one’s attention is focused at any given time.

Annie Zalezsak (20 January 2012)

If you want someone to believe in you, believe in others.

Denise Linn (, 24 January 2012)

Just because you’re afraid, that doesn’t mean you’re in danger. Just because you believe nobody cares, that doesn’t mean nobody loves you. Just because you think you might fail, that doesn’t mean you will. No, just because you believe something, that doesn’t necessarily make it true. So learn when to doubt your thoughts, while at the same time, never doubting your ability to find the honest truth.

Sandra Kring

Believe in your revelations. Believe in yourself. Take action. And watch the universe conspire to support you.

Elise Ballard

Somehow I can’t believe there are any heights that can’t be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret, it seems to me, can be summarized in four C’s. They are Curiosity, Confidence, Courage, and Constancy and the greatest of these is Confidence. When you believe a thing, believe it all the way, implicitly and unquestionably.

Walt Disney

What we know and believe is just a program; it is nothing but words, opinions, and ideas we learn from others and from our own life experience.

don Miguel Ruiz

Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in awhile, or the light won’t come in.

Alan Alda

Some people say I have attitude – maybe I do. But I think you have to. You have to believe in yourself when no one else does – that makes you a winner right there.

Venus Williams, US tennis champion

Doubt is a powerful tool. Doubt challenges my beliefs and breaks the spell of all the lies and superstitions that control my world. I use doubt to recover faith in myself, to take my power back from every superstition I believe in, and return that power to myself.

don Miguel Ruiz

But the attitude of faith is to let go, and become open to truth, whatever it might turn out to be.

Alan Watts

If you believe that something is good, and you do it, it benefits you. If you believe that something is bad, and you do it, it is a very detrimental experience.

Abraham-Hicks, from a workshop in Ft Collins, CO, USA June 14, 1998

As you imagine and visualize and verbalize your new story, in time you will believe the new story, and when that happens, the evidence will flow swiftly into your experience. A belief is only a thought you continue to think; and when your beliefs match your desires, then your desires must become your reality.

There is no physical body, no matter what the conditions, that cannot achieve an improved condition. Nothing else in your experience responds as quickly as your own physical body to your patterns of thought.

Abraham-Hicks, from Money, and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Wealth, Health, and Happiness

My greatest challenge has been to change the mindset of people. Mindsets play strange tricks on us. We see things the way our minds have instructed our eyes to see.

Muhammad Yunus

I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.

Hermann Hesse

Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be.

Karen Ravn

Believing that you cannot have something is the same thing as not desiring to have it, for it produces the same result.

from Conversations with God, Book 3, by Neale Donald Walsch

The Universe rearranges itself to bring you what you believe.

from A Little Light on the Spiritual Laws, by Diana Cooper

How can someone value your skills if you don’t value them yourself?

from Just Do It Now!: How to Become the Person You Most Want to Be, by Lynda Field

You are exactly what you think you are, and this can never be taken away from you.

from The Flow of Life: Using Your Uniques Qualities to Achieve Personal Success, by Phil Murray

We are what and where we are because we have first imagined it.

Donald Curtis

It is the nature of man to rise to greatness if greatness is expected of him.

John Steinbeck (1902-1968) American novelist

Believe you can do it. Believing something can be done puts your mind to work for you and helps you find ways to do it.

George Shinn, author of The Miracle of Motivation

Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your BELIEF will help create the fact.

Henry James (1843-1916)

An elderly Cherokee Native American was teaching his grandchildren about life…

He said to them, “A fight is going on inside me, it is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One wolf is evil – he is fear, anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, competition, superiority, and ego.

“The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, sharing, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, friendship, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.

“This same fight is going on inside you, and inside every other person, too.”

They though about it for a minute and then one child asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”

The Elder simply replied, “The one you feed.”

as retold in The Impeccable Warrior of Light, p16, by Peace Mother Geeta Sacred Song

Faith that the thing can be done is essential to any great achievement.

Thomas N Carruthers
