We can be our biggest cheerleaders — or our biggest critics. And the difference between the two options matters. Believing in yourself is crucial to succeeding.
The magic happens when you have a belief in self. Of course, it isn’t magic — it’s your potential.
Self-care is often put on the back burner in favor of other responsibilities, but believing in yourself is just one aspect of our well-being.
Self-efficacy, or your ability to believe in yourself, can improve your success.
If you can believe it, you really can achieve it. It helps to adopt a growth mindset and cultivate the ability to accept and learn from your mistakes.
At the end of the day, only you can act on the opportunities in your life.
At some point in your life, you’ll have to take a leap of faith. And you’ll have to trust in your ability to survive it.
If you don’t believe you’re worthy, neither will other people. You have to suspend your disbelief and take the leap to act like you believe in yourself, first. You’ll see yourself through new eyes and so will other people.
You’ll encounter all sorts of obstacles in life. You’ll feel tired, wary, and want to quit. But if you believe in yourself, you’ll look back on all your previous successes and remember that better is possible.
How can you reach your goals if you don’t even think you can?
Your successes shouldn’t be a surprise, they should be a validation of your belief in yourself. Believing in yourself helps you focus and increases productivity. Positive thinking is infectious, and it’ll spread to others, inspiring them to believe in themselves.
Public speaker and self-help guru Tony Robbins says, “Proximity is power.” There’s truth in that. The people you spend time with have an impact on your mindset and your motivation.
Seek out people who inspire you to be your best self and the ones who help you get there.
Just to illustrate the power of self belief – According to scientists, the Bumblebee’s body is too heavy and its wing span too small.
Aerodynamically, the bumblebee cannot fly.
But the bumblebee doesn’t know that and it keeps flying.
When you don’t know your limitations, you surprise yourself.
In hindsight, you wonder if you have any limitations. The only limitations a person has are those that are self-imposed.
Don’t let education and past experience put limitations on you.
Believe in yourself, achieve & stay blessed forever.
