These positive affirmation quotes tell it all. Basically, you can't become what you can't believe. Many people falter right at the beginning because they have no burning passion to believe that their life can change. See what these authors have to say.
Constant repetition carries conviction. Robert Collier

First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do. Epictetus
You must begin to think of yourself as becoming the person you want to be. David Viscott
These repetitive words and phrases are merely methods of convincing the subconscious mind. Claude M. Bristol
You must intensify and render continuous by repeatedly presenting with suggestive ideas and mental pictures of the feast of good things, and the flowing fountain, which awaits the successful achievement or attainment of the desires. Robert Collier
As long as you know what it is you desire, then by simply affirming that it is yours -- firmly and positively, with no ifs, buts, or maybes -- over and over again, from the minute you arise in the morning until the time you go to sleep at night, and as many times during the day as your work or activities permit, you will be drawn to those people, places, and events that will bring your desires to you. Scott Reed
Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives. Sidney Madwed
Positive Attitude Tip:
What you believe has a tendency to become your reality.
Using positive thinking techniques, visualizations and
affirmations, you may find that it is possible to achieve your goals.
Affirmations are first steps, you then have to develop action
plans to support your affirmation. For example, if your
affirmation is, "I am a successful self employed person", you must also
develop a plan to support this affirmation. The most important thing
with any affirmations is that you first have to believe it is possible!
