Belief Comes First

I know a handful of millionaires.

Though they’ve earned their greenbacks in different ways, they have one thing in common: confidence.

I don’t mean the brazen, teenage-like confidence that disgusts. They posses a humble confidence which exudes from the core of their beliefs.

Millionaires believe that…

  • They make good decisions.
  • They will continue to make good decisions.
  • They must continue to grow and learn.

They’re artists of decision-making.

The secret: they always believed they had what it takes, even before the money came in.


As creatives, belief comes first–in everything we do. It’s the fuel for confidence. It’s the perseverance through the failures. It’s the humility that keeps us grounded when success finally comes.

Take a lesson from the millionaires…and believe.

  • Do you think creatives have trouble being confident in their work? At least in others approving it?

    • Hi Larry–thanks for your comment and question.

      It’s a huge issue for some creatives. It’s so debilitating that many great creatives never even get started producing the amazing work that’s in them.

    Short sweet and too the point. Thanks for dangling the carrot infront of us. To believe is to be hungry for something. To be confident is to feed that hunger.
