To believe in yourself is to accept the whole truth about yourself. Or to have a firm conviction as to your ability, efficacy, goodness, and what you are capable of doing as an individual.
Though there may be days in your life when you get up in the morning and discover that things are not the way you had hoped or planned they would be.
Which we all in one way or the other have encountered such uncertainty, disappointment, failure, etc.
Whenever such uncertainty occurs in someone’s life. You feel bad or even become ashamed of yourself. In some cases, you feel discouraged and confused.
Which are capable of hindering you from achieving your already set goal. But remember it’s not a time to cry or apportion blames to anybody or to yourself.
Rather time you must remind yourself of the humble truth about yourself. And begin to trust in your own ability.
It’s also a time to encourage and tell yourself that things will get better. Time to tell your self though people might have disappointed, ridiculed, or made a mockery of you.
Or the things of this life might not have been fair to you. You can still make it by God’s grace. Understand that as you walk towards achieving your destiny and success in life.
There must be challenges to face, disappointments to meet, and obstacles to overcome. Be ready to face them, stand up and deal with them, and never allow them to weigh you down.
Constantly keep yourself headed in the right direction and never allow anything to distract you.
Though it may not be easy at times, perseverance always wins it all. Knowing that whenever it gets tough the end is near.
Therefore when the days that are filled with frustration and unexpected responsibilities and uncertainty come your way. Remember to believe in yourself and all you wish to be in this life.
7 steps to help you believe in yourself.
1. Evaluation of your Thoughts and Actions.
Evaluation is highly needed at this point, to see if there is any room that will lead to a positive change in his or her life and if there is, the choice is yours to make necessary amendments.
Because the challenges and changes you made, would be a channel to the attainment of your goals, that you know are meant to come true for you.
First of all think of the kind of people you spend your time with, people, you talk to and listened to.
Secondly, what kind of books are you reading and also the type of movies you watch. Then the way you act or react to issues that concern your destiny.
2. Believe It’s Possible.
Regardless of what you are currently passing through, where you have found yourself or what people are saying or might have said about you always believe in yourself.
Being positive and mindful each day will make you unstoppable in any situation. Because whatever you are going to be or achieve in this life.
Will depend on you believing in yourself and believe that everything is possible.
Pay attention to your mindset, because your mindset is like your director that leads you wherever you go.
Therefore be positively minded knowing very well that, what you think about yourself will always affect and influence the results you get in every area of life.
Most times the voices that come to our heads are not always positive. It often sounds negative.
Just like I can never get things done, I’m going to fail—again, I can never make it. don’t listen to those voices, they are not for your good.
4. Avoid the Advice of Impossibilities Thinkers.
Some people believe that everything is impossible, and they are quick to shoot down ideas by poisoning your mind into a state of hopelessness.
Don’t let them steal your energy just because they’ve lost theirs. This set of people are negative minded, and will always see impossibility in every goal.
Avoid them for they can never build you up. Instead surround yourself with supportive, positive, passionate, and possibilities thinking people.
People who can both inspire you in other to bring out the best in you. Take a decision on who will be your friend or not.
For, the power of association and disassociation is a very important power for you to exercise in your life. Also, avoid books and movies that can deteriorate your belief in your ability.
Do away with people who make you feel like crap and get around people who can help you create belief in yourself and build you up.
5. Trust and love yourself and your ability.
Don’t be your own worst enemy instead of being your own best friend. By doubting your own ability when you deserve to treat yourself better.
Because you are uniquely, wonderfully, and fearfully made by God.
Remember that which you afraid of is also afraid of you. Therefore, be kind to yourself, for you are more capable and worthy than you give yourself credit for.
6. Take Action Toward Your Goals.
I have discovered, this is where many people find it very difficult to operate. Many people may understand all the principles that lead one to his or her success.
And you can set your goals, and say your affirmations and do your visualizations. But ultimately nothing happens if you don’t act on them.
One of the reasons most people don’t achieve their goals or realize their dreams in life is that they don’t take action, as a result of fear and doubt.
This leads them into believing that even if they try, they will still fail. Be consistent with where you want to go and what you want to achieve in life.
Take action towards your goals. Never allow fear to stop you, nothing happens in life until you take action.
Many people are afraid of what people would say, how people would feel about me, afraid of failure in pursuit of their goal.
Immediately this virus called fear grabs you, your beloved goal forever feels out of reach. Then you see yourself questioning your knowledge and abilities in everything you do.
What are you afraid of? Don’t you know that most of the things we worry about don’t really matter?. Self-doubt would never rebuild your confidence.
Therefore in other to believe in yourself, you need to face your self-doubt and take care of it, by paying attention to how you react to things and taking steps to address them.
