Here is the Bob McDermott picture I used to help with my belief:
I used a large variety of means to keep up my belief, I used my mastermind group, read autobiographies, cut out various articles and pictures of great endeavours and kept a little piece of paper in my wallet with a lot of “belief” quotes cut and pasted onto it.
This is what was on the list:
Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.
