Created For Success!

 

Famous stage and film actress Helen Hayes believed “resoluteness” about her own potential success played an important role at the beginning of her career.  She once said:

“Before the author gave me the script, they observed, in a matter-of-course manner, “Of course you play piano?  You’ll have to sing your own accompaniment in the piece’.   As these alarming tidings were in the course of being made, I caught a bewildered look in my mother’s eyes, and so I spoke up before she could. ‘Certainly I play piano,’ I answered.

“As we left the theater, my mother sighed, ‘I hate to see you start under a handicap,’ she said.  ‘What made you say you could play piano?’ ‘The feeling that I will play before rehearsals begin,’ I said.  We went at once to try to rent a piano…and ended by buying one.  I began lessons at once, practiced finger-exercises till I could no longer see the notes–and began rehearsals with the ability to accompany myself.  Since then, I never lived too far from a piano.”

What you believe about your own potential for success counts far more than what any other person may believe.  Believe what God believes about you–you were created for success.


There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling".
