Believe in Yourself

"If you don’t believe in yourself then you are quitting on yourself before you even get started”
 – Nick Newell 

For those of you who don’t remember Nick Newell from our previous post, he is a professional mixed martial artist with a perfect 6-0 record who also happened to be born with only one arm. He recently sat down for an inspiring interview in anticipation of his upcoming MMA fight on April 13th. There are so many lessons to be learned from Nick Newell, but one that particularly stands out in his latest interview is simple: always believe in yourself. If there was ever anyone who would have reason to doubt himself you might think it would be a person with one arm who was pursuing a career as a professional mixed martial artist. Yet, as Nick so confidently informs us, he does not ever doubt himself and believes 100% in his abilities to succeed. Let this be a lesson to us all. If you do not believe in yourself, you are not giving yourself a chance to succeed. If you truly believe in yourself, you will succeed. Check out the interview in full below.
