How To Believe In Yourself

Do You Believe In Yourself?

I'm sure everyone has heard the old saying Seeing is Believing, but have you ever thought just how you see yourself in your own eyes?  Do you believe in yourself?

So many people these days, and really through all years of life on earth has one time or another thought not so highly of themselves. These thoughts, low self esteem, lack of confidence could of been triggered in their early years of life and has stuck with them into adulthood.

Always believe in yourself no matter what anyone has said in the past or the present as well. You are you, and there is no one better than you.

As long as you as you keep remembering that statement and store it in the back of your mind, you will never forget who you are.

You must continue everyday of your life think that you are the best at everything you do. Never cut yourself short in anything in life.

Believing or not believing in yourself can make or break ones life and possibly the success of their future.

In order to be successful in life, you must believe in yourself and know in your mind that you can and will achieve everything in life that you set out to do without fail.

If you believe in yourself it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks about you.

Things You Must Always Tell Yourself

What you continue to say to yourself will make you a believer in yourself.

  • Don't ever give up on anything you do until you have achieved it.
  • Never doubt yourself.
  • Don't cut yourself short.
  • Don't stop until you have achieved your goal.
  • Never say Never.
  • If I believe I will achieve.

What not to say to yourself:

  • I can not do this.
  • I don't know how to do this.
  • I'm not smart enough to do this.
  • This is way over my head.
  • I'm not smart enough to even try to learn this.

  • If you truly believe in yourself you will have the power within to achieve anything in life with out fail. You must never give up for fear of failure. Sometimes in life you must fail in order to succeed in life.

  • By making mistakes in life is how we learn. We see what we did wrong and by believing in ourselves we then have the strength and the knowledge to stand back up and succeed in what we previously failed at.

I liked the section on things you must always tell yourself. All very true. I struggle sometimes with doubting myself, but you're most certainly right - never say never :)
