The Carrow Road outfit will be back in the second tier next season having tumbled out of the Premier League in 2013/14.
Changes have been made in an effort to turn the corner, with Neil Adams handed the managerial reins on a permanent basis and former midfielder Holt returning in a coaching capacity.
He believes the potential is there for Norwich to bounce straight back into the big time, providing they do not feel sorry for themselves and give their all in a fiercely competitive division.
Holt said in the Pink Un: “You have to move on – relegation’s done, that’s life.
“You don’t get to go back and sort things out. We don’t have a time machine, so get over it. It’s football.
“Now you’re looking to August 9, the first game – go win that game.
“That’s where you’ve got to get the belief back in the players, because they’re good players – they are excellent players. Internationals most of them.
“So it’s about getting that work ethic and belief back into them to go and win games, roll their sleeves up, work their socks off. That’s what we’ll get into them.”
On the challenge posed by the Championship, Holt added: “You look at it now, every stadium is phenomenal to play at. Whereas in my day, there were the odd few where the pitch was okay but the stadiums and dressing rooms were terrible, and it was mental thing.
“Now you don’t have that. You might as well be playing at home every week, with the pitches and crowds. So it’s a chance to express yourself on almost a world stage.
“It’s a good thing to have. So it’s about getting that work ethic into them to go and enjoy it – every game, home and away.”
