Are our words really having an impact?

April 7, 2020
I’m sure there have been times that we have all asked ourselves whether our words are really having an impact. With this question comes the risk of beginning to doubt ourselves and our true value.   ‘Belief’ is such a huge word, and the meaning behind it and around it is a game changer. For me, as many of you know, I have had one person throughout my life who has never given up on me, the one who sacrificed years of her life away from her husband and three daughters to save her son, and I am eternally grateful. I have slowly begun to understand that in life we really only need one person to believe in us, it might be a mum, a dad, a sibling, a friend, but I also now realise that it might simply be that person that looks back at us in the mirror each morning we brush our teeth. As long as we believe in ourselves, we will achieve things that our mind could not possibly grasp.    If you said to me this time last year, ‘Michael, in September 2019 you’re going to receive an email requesting you to be the opening keynote speaker at Sir Richard Branson’s Australian tour in November’, I would have said you were crazy. Fast forward to today and here I am announcing to the world that it has happened and it was a huge success. I feel incredibly blessed and overwhelmed with the love & support I have received and the messages from so many have truly touched my heart.    We all have people that will only tell us what we cannot achieve, however if we surround ourselves with the right people, we will be supported in understanding and believing what we can. When we knock the T off CAN’T – we realise that we can.  Self-belief, or the confidence in our own abilities and judgement, is such a vital component in allowing us to reach our full potential.   It’s amazing when we stop listening to ourselves and start talking to ourselves, how quickly the transformation begins.   The schedule has been insane as always, with many international trips, including my highlight this year, speaking in a packed arena at the MGM Grand with over 13,500 people. I understand that this could never have happened if it wasn’t for the people in my life who have believed in me and supported me in building my own self-belief.   Appreciate you joining me on this crazy journey through life and I look forward to speaking with you all soon.
With smiles and passion in creating inspiration daily. Michael Crossland
