Here’s The Secret to the Great Pumpkin

Great Inspiration from The Pumpkin Patch

In the Peanuts comic strip, Linus always believed that the Great Pumpkin would someday show up. Why did he keep believing, while everyone else in the gang gave him a hard time?

Linus believed in the Great Pumpkin so much, that he even took the time to write a letter… “Dear Great Pumpkin, I am looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night. Everyone tells me you are a fake, but I believe in you. Sincerely, Linus van Pelt. PS – if you really are a fake, don’t tell me. I don’t want to know.” Linus_GreatPumpkinLike Linus, great athletes have the secret. They have the mindset to believe in themselves and their ability, way before they run on the field, or throw the winning pass, or get to the world series. Like great athletes, we all possess this great belief inside of us, yet very few of us ever tap into it. Belief is one of the greatest gifts we all have. Although we are all born with this ability, “to Believe,” it actually takes continued work on our part. The best part is, it’s FREE. We all have this free gift to choose our thoughts. The work we put into it, is up to each one of us! 

“Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to SEE what you believe.” ~ Saint Augustine

  You’ve got to believe… in yourself!
