The Blues put behind their disappointment of missing out on the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan by winning their next two games, a 5-1 victory over Leeds United in the Capital One Cup and an incredible 8-0 rout of Aston Villa in the Premier League.
Cahill, who sat out the game against Leeds, was one of the players who was involved in Chelsea's extraordinary win over the Villians, and the England international believes his side can use that victory as a springboard to greater success this season.
When asked his thoughts about Chelsea's win over Villa, Cahill told the official Chelsea website: "It was a day when everything came together for us.
"We started the game really well which set the tempo. We were good defensively and going forward we were brilliant and created a lot of chances.
"There were plenty of goals and plenty of goalscorers.
"Without being disrespectful to Aston Villa, it is a rare scoreline and you feel a bit sorry for them but at the same time, we had to do a job and we have shown what we can do.
"The positive thing was we didn't sit back when we had scored two or three.
"We kept going until the 90th minute and we got our rewards for that and that will give us confidence leading in to the Norwich game."
With the Blues having already lost out on two trophies this season (FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup), Cahill has urged his team-mates to make up for it by winning a trophy this season, something he believes can be done if they continue playing the way they did against Villa, starting with the game against Norwich.
"There won't be one of our fans watching who didn't enjoy the performance and hopefully we can continue," Cahill added.
"The manager said he is going to keep working hard and doing his best and as players that is what we try to do, and I am sure we will win people over with performances like that.
"We needed a reaction from losing the final in Japan which was a big blow for us, and it shows the character in the team that we came back with hardly any rest and got the good result at Leeds and then again on Sunday.
"We showed what we are capable of and it is just a matter of consistency now.
"We have a lot of young players but on a day like Sunday you can really see the quality in the squad.
"If we play like that we won't go far wrong. Norwich away is always a tough game and we found that when we went there last year.
No doubt it will be similar but we go into the match with great confidence."
Chelsea will head into their clash with Norwich in third place, 11 points behind current league leaders Manchester United, who are in action against Alan Pardew's Newcastle on Wednesday.
