In any project the important factor is your belief. Without belief, there can be no successful outcome. (William James, 19th & 20th century philosopher and psychologist)

Many will agree with James’ proposition. Certainly, you have to believe in what you’re doing if you expect to have positive outcomes. More critical, however, is where you’ve placed your faith. Too often we put our faith in unreliable or unproven ideas. First, check the source of your belief and then move forward with what is solid and true.

Only simpletons believe everything they’re told! The prudent carefully consider their steps. (Proverbs 14:15)
