10 Character Builders of Believers

Is Dedicated – Is wholeheartedly devoted to a goal, cause or dream.

Faith in Others – Belief in, devotion to, or trust in somebody or something, especially without logical proof. Strong held set of principals.

Stays Committed – Remains entrusted and steadfast. Unwavering and persistent to reach the goal.

Strives to Succeed – Tries hard to make significant progress to accomplish successful results. Looks for a desired measurable positive outcome.

Builds Confidence – Develops faith in own talents. Has a self-assurance that views and abilities are of value to others.

Intellectually Akin - Having a highly developed ability to think, reason, and understand related subjects, especially in combination with a wide knowledge, rather than using emotions.

Trustful and Loyal - Expected by others to behave responsibly and honorably, remaining faithful to a country, person, ruler, government, or ideal. Dependable and dedicated to a cause.

Can Accept as True - To acknowledge that something is real or genuine prior to being able to prove it. Having the ability to see the big picture before you can justify or authenticate it.

Faith in Yourself – Being able to trust your own actions based on loyalty to self, prior successes. The ability to stay committed, resulting in a sense of responsibility or devotion to duty that builds self esteem.

Can Visualize the Future – Willing to create a vivid positive mental picture of an event that has not yet happened, such as a desired outcome to a problem or challenge, in order to promote a sense of well-being. Dreams of opportunities with measurable goals.

True believers have unique qualities allowing them to look into the future with their imagination to see what could be. True believers also have the stamina and the wherewithal to churn out the necessary required effort needed to make what they believe in reality. You can not persuade a believer; for their belief is not based on evidence, it’s based on a firmly unseated need to believe. Believers will go the extra mile, work the extra hours, and make the needed sacrifices to insure what they believe in is successful.

Question? Do you believe in miracles? I’ve seen too many not to. Miracles usually come to fruition because someone believed they would. It has also been said that there are no miracles for those who do not believe in them. This again accentuates the power of believing. So believe in yourself and all you do, believers are miracle makers. For the believer nothing is impossible, for our only limitations are those we place on ourselves. There is no difficulty that can not be overcome. Never believe in defeat. If you have your eye on the goal, you’ll find a way, if you don’t you’ll find an excuse.
