Believe

“You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.” – Swami Vivekananda

At one time or another, you have doubted yourself – perhaps too many times. You have doubted your decisions; you have doubted if you are successful, or will ever be successful. And there have been times when you feel inadequate and overwhelmed.
