Over the past week I’ve seen several cars with “We Believe” painted in their back window. I am assuming this refers to the belief in that jolly guy from the North Pole who flies through the night with a sleigh pulled by reindeer to deliver presents worldwide. It got me thinking, why not spend as much time and energy this season in improving a belief in ourselves to achieve the challenges before us? I’ve been in business 21 years – time after time, when I’m faced with challenges, I’ve had to dig down deep into my own internal sense of self, reestablish the base of my strengths to find the path up the next mountain. I’ve been blogging about these concepts this entire week:

Leverage your strengths to pursue opportunities – see the Creating Meaningful Work posting.
Create value from your unique differences – see the Standing Out from the Crowd posting.
Find the opportunity from adversity – see the Concerned About Keeping or Getting a Job in Today’s Environment posting.

In this “Believe in Yourself” day, that we are dedicating to helping others harness a belief in themselves to pursue their life’s challenges, my Cheetah Team and I have created a number of fun activities (for participating we have selected several courses you can take for free that will help you enhance your capabilities to climb that next mountain in your life):

If we encourage innocent children to believe reindeer can fly, then lets encourage each other to soar in life as well.

Just as we encourage innocent children to believe reindeer can fly, lets encourage each other to soar in life as well.
