How To Be Inspired To Believe In Yourself?

inspired to believe self

Why is it essential to believe in yourself?

One thing that separates the achievers from the others is the belief they have in themselves.

If you have the urge to get the success that you have been aspiring for, the primary factor that you need to work on is to believe in you.

This will pave the way to develop confidence in yourself and improve the chances of attaining the success you seek.

But, why is it essential to instill the belief in yourself and how will this kind of thinking help you in achieving the success that has been eluding you for a long time?

One common mistake that parents and teachers do is they fill in a lot of negativity in their words without their knowledge.

This reinforces the feeling that nothing can be achieved by the person.

Everything they think of hits the obstacle of “I cannot do this” response that is automatically generated within the person’s mind.

This negativity in the mind is the prime reason why many people are not able to achieve their goals even though they have various great aspirations and dreams in life to make it big and become successful.

Since they have this instilled negativity they are not able to believe in themselves and set forth in their journey towards achievements.

They end up lamenting that they are not able to reach their goals that they perceive and start playing the blame game or seek excuses to hide behind it.

This creates a setback to efforts exerted in realizing their dreams and these dreams remain distant fantasies that they feel will never materialize.

Boost Your Self-Esteem and Believe You Can!

The strongest single factor in prosperity consciousness is self-esteem: believing you can do it, believing you deserve it, believing you will get it.  – Jerry Gillies

Self-esteem refers to how you think and feel about yourself. These are thoughts and feelings a person may have, may it be positive, negative, or mixed — about one’s self.

The more positive these thoughts and feelings are, the higher your self-esteem will be and conversely the more negative these thoughts and feelings are, the lower your self-esteem will become.

Feeling good about yourself is important as it gives you a sense of control over your life. It can also help make a person feel satisfied in a relationship.

With a positive self-identity, a person is able to set   realistic expectations for oneself and pursue their goals.

Having a negative self-perception, on the other hand, results in a distorted view of one’s self, which leads to further lack of self-confidence, poor performance, and depression.

In recent times, low self-esteem has been one of the most popular and frequently invoked psychological explanations for behavioral and social problems.

Taking their cue from social commentators and media opinion leaders, people have been willing to accept that a limited sense of self-worth lies behind just about every social and personal ill from drug abuse and delinquency to poverty and business failures.

The result has been a huge market for self-help manuals and educational programs.

People who have a low self-esteem rely heavily on their day-to-day performances.

The positive external experience and encouragements help them to battle the negative feelings that they have about themselves.

These negative feelings very often trouble the people with low self-esteem.

In some situations, feelings of inadequacy torture those who do not have enough confidence about themselves and about what they can do.

There are many known ways to improve one’s self-esteem.

To boost one’s confidence, it may be helpful to practice the following self-improvement techniques and strategies:

Rebutting the inner critic that keeps on sending self-defeating messages;

Practicing the art of self-nurturing; and

Getting much-needed help and support from people who are close to you.

The first important step to increase self-esteem is to tell the inner voice to shut up. The inner voice might say negatively about you. In such situation, you must praise yourself.

Rebutting the inner voice that keeps on criticizing you should be done on a regular basis. However, this step is not enough to develop self-esteem.

The second step that one must initiate on a way to a healthy self-esteem is that a person should nurture himself. The most important part of this step is start treating yourself as a person who is worthy.

Seek out people who make you feel good. Remember that you get to choose your friends so why not choose people who think you’re great?

Moreover, both individual and group counseling can help improve self-esteem.

Such therapy might include assertiveness training, communication skills, and learning to recognize and understand own emotional responses in relation to others.

Therapy may also explore early and later experiences that contributed to your low self-esteem.

Group therapy is particularly effective that it helps to foster trust and build relationships, and encourages a sense of belonging-components that are important for building self-esteem.

Low and poor self-esteem is often the result of bad or a wrong treatment that was experienced in the past. Hence, you must start regarding yourself as a worthy person.

You must be able to challenge negative experiences in the past and you should start loving yourself.

Try to change yourself and show to the outside world that you are valuable, competent, and a lovable person. Learn to develop high self-esteem and believe you can do it, you deserve it, and you will get it.

you are what you believe

Mind over matter, you are what you believe

If you could be anything and do anything, who would you be and what would you do?

Most people do not recognize the power available to them in their own mind. Winston Churchill once said: “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”

He should know. After all, he led his country against all odds to fight off a bitter enemy and eventually with a little help from friends snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Where would the world be today if Churchill had not let his nation challenge Hitler and believed, contrary to all evidence, they could succeed in that battle?

Nothing is more powerful than what we believe. If we believe that we can achieve, then we can. If we believe that we are doomed to failure then we will.

Sometimes, enacting a change in our lives is as simple as changing our attitude.

Think about this quote from Katherine Mansfield:

“Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different.”

That is a very powerful message but you have to really bring it to heart.

In many ways, it is the perfect pitch because the explanation for any failure on your part is simply that you did not believe enough, but maybe, if you really do believe and embrace this attitude, you can’t possibly fail.

If you change your attitude it will change your life. Know it. Live it. You see it every day. You know in your gut it is true.

If you have changed your attitude and your life before even if you do not achieve the goal you started with at that time, perhaps, it is possible to consider yourself a failure.

Words are power. Attitude is power. Combine the two and you have power magnified many times over. If you can harness that power to serve your purpose then nothing can stop you.

Too often, that power is wasted on negative rather than positive actions. You complain about your situation, job, relationships, traffic and the weather. You complain that you are sick and tired and just plain stuck.

What is stuck is your attitude. What is stuck is a thought in your minds that you cannot change anything about your lives when the truth is that you have the power to change everything about your lives.

You don’t have to work in that job, stay in that relationship, drive in that traffic, or live in that weather zone. These are all choices you make — and even more important you choose how you react to those conditions.

As the trite old saying goes, “when life gives you lemons make lemonade”.

Your attitude determines everything about you and your life.

If you choose to be angry and frustrated by your life then your anger and frustration will only continue to grow.

But if you choose to become proactive rather than reactive or if you choose to have a different attitude then you can become the person you want and you can lead the life that you want.

But you have to believe. It really can be as simple as mind over matter, but you have to believe in the power of your mind.

Thus, in order to achieve the goals and aspirations, it is essential to shed the negativity that is harboring in the mind and looks forward to reaching them by instilling positive thoughts and attitude.

This is not possible unless you start believing in yourself and see yourself as an achiever that is capable of reaching great heights that you are destined to reach no matter what.

Unless you really start believing in yourself and work towards reaching your goals, you will just end up being a nobody and end up being the mediocre person that you have always known yourself to be depending on other shoulders to shoot your gun.

Take a decision today and think carefully whether you need a life of any other average person or would you want to excel beyond everyone and live the life of a successful person. The answer lies within you.

Why Is It Important To Believe In Yourself?

believe in yourself

 

Why is it crucial to believe in yourself?

Why would you believe in yourself in the first place? But before we go through that, we have to ask first, who would you rather believe then, your friends, your family, your neighbors, and anybody else more than anything else?

These could be some of the questions that are running through your mind.

See, do not short-change yourself. Do not undervalue yourself either.

You are a wonderful human being just as you are.

Did you know that there is one thing that separates achievers from the rest? It is their belief they got for themselves.

If you have been craving for success or any longing to accomplish something, the primary thing you have to do first is to believe in you.

Working on believing yourself is a good anchor in growing confidence and developing self-esteem that will boost you to take action and move out of your comfort zone.

For sure, this increases you chance of reaching the victory that you once dream of having.

Believe in Yourself

These could be some of the questions that are running through your mind.

Why is it necessary to inculcate belief in yourself?

Success eludes those who seek it with a negative mind. This is absolutely true.

Achievers have beaten the odds and reached there just because they believe in themselves and have the positive mind to find their goals in life.

If you want to be an achiever and be a go-getter you too can reach the pinnacle of your abilities.

All you need is a sound positive mind that has a strong belief in yourself and your abilities and then the sky is only the limit.

But, this is easier said than done and you need to work towards making your mind strong and positive as the mind is very fickle and gets easily distracted to think in a negative fashion due to the conditioning you have received from various sources right from your childhood.

How will this way of thinking assist you in getting the success that perhaps has been eluding you for quite some time already?

With or without their knowledge, the society, including the school or even our family is putting much negativity in your being.

These negative thoughts become negative beliefs and reinforce your feeling that you can’t achieve anything.

Thus, when you are thinking of doing something but there would be obstacles along the way, the “I cannot do this” thought automatically pops into your mind.

Many people might not able to attain their target objectives in life in spite of their aspirations and dreams in life to emerge successfully because of this negativity.

The negativity in their mind has stopped them from believing in themselves to take action and start a journey toward reaching them.

And what happens next?

They end up lamenting of not being able to achieve their goals that they perceive from the start along with creating excuses and playing the blame game to cover it up.

Then, it will become a huge hurdle to the efforts made in working out on those dreams that remain dreams only that cannot be turned into reality.

Another takeaway for you, do not listen to the negativity of your mind. Find ways to contradict every negative thought that creeps in. Be on the lookout and maintain to be always in the positive zone.

The negative thoughts of the mind are all lies. Do not be deceived by them. Your mind only wants you to back down and stay put and play safe.

How can you take action if this is the case?

If you were not aware and just follow these negative thoughts, they will be justified by excuses and blames.

Remember, as much as possible your mind does not want to be tired and exerts effort. It takes tons of energy in accomplishing your goals and reaching your dreams.

Thus, guard your mind and be selective of accepting your thoughts. Success evades those who pursue it with a negative mind.

Successful people beat the odds and become achievers because they believe in themselves and have a positive mind that propels them to accomplishing their goals in life.

Do you want to be a high-flier or go-getter?

Then, start with a sound and positive mind with a strong faith in yourself. With that, the sky is only the limit in accomplishing your dreams and reaching the peak of your abilities.

But, is this easier said that done? Of course, you have to work in making your mind strong and recreating your mind to positive thoughts.

The mind is very fickle and gets easily distracted considering that it might be used to thinking negative and accustomed to various conditioning received from different sources even from the childhood days.

How do you become more positive about your abilities?

How do you develop the belief that you are capable of achieving whatever you are aspiring for?

Let us look at some of the certain things that can help you in this endeavor.

Feel and Think Positive

Starting to think positive would leading to taking positive actions as well.

Again, how to think positive and feel positive about yourself?

It is best to use daily affirmations about your abilities to assist in reinforcing and strengthening that belief in you.

These affirmations will gradually let you believe that you are successful and will take actions toward realizing them and put them into reality.

Stay Motivated

There are always challenges in life and maybe some distractions in your goals. Because of this, motivation is very important. You have to remain motivated always for you to have that belief in yourself.

Discover what makes you motivated and how to get them handy the time you need one.

Being motivated can be attained through listening to inspirational music or reading motivational materials. It can be from simple things that bring you to push forward.

Understand Your Goals

You know you have ambitions that need realization. But, first thing first, know your goals and stick to them.

Do not deviate and find a new goal to work out simply because you have not achieved the previous one. If you do this, you will be wandering aimlessly and will not reach your aspirations.

Make it simpler by having short term goals or divide long-term goals into small parts for you to accomplish one after the other.

Set on the Journey

Dreaming alone does not make anything out of it. With enough confidence and belief in yourself, then it’s time for you to take action. Move forward and put those plans to actions and then to achievements.

Do not stay blaming and lamenting. Set yourself to the journey of reaching toward your dreams. Be ready and at the same time be tough to whatever you will encounter along the way.

You Can Believe In Yourself

When you’re depressed, usually you feel you aren’t accomplishing much. You may be making an effort, but you have a tendency to give up easily.

Unfortunately, after a time we start to doubt you can count on yourselves to do what we say, or you may become reluctant to agree to meet with anyone or promise to do anything because you don’t know how you’ll feel when the time comes.

This usually spirals downward because the more often you break a promise or avoid one, the more that seems to prove to you that you aren’t reliable.

So how can you change this? How can you become reliable again, not just to others, but more importantly, prove to yourselves that you will do what we intend?

Because if you can’t count on yourselves even to go to an appointment, how can you believe you can accomplish your dreams?

You can’t. And that would depress anyone. But if instead you practice making promises to yourself and keeping them, you can gradually rebuild confidence in yourself.

For a moment, think of yourself as a juggler, and the things you want to do in a day as the balls you balance. You may not be a very good juggler at the moment, but with practice, you can get better.

So let’s say at present you are a two ball juggler. This means in the night or week before you can say, “What two things am I going to do on that day?” and be 90% sure you will get them done.

And this would be great because you would know you can count on yourself to do two specific things. You can get anywhere with that.

Knowing you can count on yourself is actually more valuable than the things you do or how many of them you can get done.

It is the reliability that helps you restore your confidence and dependability and lets you move forward in the direction you wish to go.

Even if you can only do a couple of things a day, but you can count on yourself to do them, you can accomplish much!

believe in yourself to make things happen

So wherever you are at the moment, start seeing if you can make a commitment to what you will do tomorrow, and the next day, and each day this week.

Begin small, maybe planning one or two things a day, and accomplish those things for certain.

Your goal is to do 90% or better of what you set out to do. Anything else you get done is extra. That’s wonderful.

But don’t neglect those two things. You want to know if you say you’ll call two people, for instance, that you’ll do that. You’ll get it done.

Once you have established that you can count on yourself to do two planned things a day, you can try for three a day. But the main thing is if you can count on yourself to do what you set out to do.

You can make progress at anything in life. You can prioritize what is important to you, and say no before you take on too much.

Believe that you have it in you. Shed the negativity remaining in your mind. Instill positive thoughts and attitude instead.

See yourself as a successful person, an achiever capable of reaching great heights or a go-getter that is destined to triumph no matter what.

Do not end up being a nobody or a mediocre person that you have always known yourself to be depending on other shoulders to shoot your gun.

Integrate the thought of believing in yourself and check the difference it can bring to your life.

Take a decision right now and ponder reasonably whether you want a better life or want to excel and live the life of success that you deserve. You have the answer within you.
