“Belief” is an awesome force that can give us the power to accomplish the seemingly impossible. When I study in high school, I heard many well-known examples of the power of belief in action according to my teacher’s introduction. The poor girl who sell matches for instance, always had belief that God would somehow provide the food, money and provisions she needed to continue her life. If you believe in yourself, you can accomplish anything. There is no muscle stronger than belief it’s a power much greater than one can imagine. During a crucial battle, a British officer decided to attack even though his army was greatly outnumbered. He was sure that they would win, but his men were filled with doubt. On the way to the battle they stopped at a church. After praying with his soldiers, the general took out a coin and said, “I shall now toss this coin. If it is heads, we shall win. If it is tails we shall lose. He threw the coin into the air and all watched intently as it landed. It was heads. The soldiers were so overjoyed and filled with confidence and faith in their officer that they vigorously attacked the enemy and were victorious. After the battle, a lieutenant remarked to the officer, “no one can change the destiny.” “Quite right,” the officer replied as he showed the lieutenant the coin which had heads on both sides.

In a word, media influences our belief in our daily life. The belief serves as a cause for new effort and new directions in our actions.
