World famous golfer Arnold Palmer has a plaque in his office that says, ‘If you think you are beaten, you are. If you think you dare not, you don’t. If you’d like to win but think you can’t, it’s almost certain you won’t. Life’s battles don’t always go to the stronger or faster man, but sooner or later, the man who wins is the man who thinks he can.’
Those words explain countless stories of success by people, most of whom never became famous, but who triumphed over adversity, found success in various endeavours and left the world a better place, not because they were brighter, stronger or more talented than everyone else, but because they had a vision of what their lives could be and the courage to pursue it.
The heart of this is faith. ‘If you can believe,’ said Jesus, ‘All things are possible to those who believe.’(B)
