Marie Forleo: The Belief That Can Make You Unstoppable | SuperSoul Sessions | Oprah Winfrey Network



So make no mistake, my friends. What we say to ourselves in the privacy of our own minds, matters. It drives our behavior which drives our destiny which shapes our world. And this isn't just my opinion. Our entire culture has been transformed by people who believe and behave like everything is figure-out-able. Think about the Wright brothers. If they hadn't believed human flight was possible, they wouldn't and couldn't have spent even one minute trying to figure it out. If the suffragettes hadn't believed women's voting rights were possible, they wouldn't and couldn't have spent even one minute working to make that a reality. And what we need now, more than anything else, is people who believe in what's possible. From health care to the environment to education to our food system to inequality and injustice on every level. There are so many important things that we need to come together to figure out. So the question I want to leave you with today is this: What would you do if you held this idea to be true? What would you create or heal or transform or transcend? Who might you become? Because if we start to think about our creative challenges and our life challenges and our collective challenges in this way that everything really is figure-out-able, it all starts to change. We go from feeling defeated and overwhelmed and broken to feeling courageous and capable and full of hope. I believe we must teach this to ourselves and to each other and to our children and to our children's children. Because there will be moments in your life when an opportunity is presented to you to do something or say something or change something. And I want you to make a promise to yourself right now that from this day forward, you won't waste one more minute of one more day saying to yourself, I don't know how to do that. Or I don't know if I have what it takes to be that. Because you and I both know in our heart of hearts, yes, you do. You are divinely blessed and infinitely capable. And there is no fate, no circumstance, no situation that can hinder the unstoppable power of your human soul.
