Bee-lieve In Yourself, like what Bee Barry did!

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its little fat body off the ground. But the bee, flies anyway. Because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.

Do you know who Bee Barry is?

He’s a bee. A honeybee – a very little tiny being who did the biggest change in the bee history.


There was this part when Bee Larry King asks Bee Barry, “Did you ever think ‘I’m just a kid from a hive, I can’t do this?’”

And his answer was “Bees have never been afraid to change the world, I mean what about Bee Columbus, Bee Ghandi, Bee Jesus?”

Oh, love his positive outlook in life.

Bee Barry wasn’t born or bred with the muscles and body of a Pollen Jocks, those bees who go outside and brings nectar to the hive. He’s not definitely a Pollen Jock material – but this was his dream, to become a part of the Royal Nectar Force.

Even Bee Adam, his best friend, talked him out of his “crazy” idea because it’s not coming true, there’s no way little Bee Barry would become a part of the Royal Nectar Force.

If Bee Barry believed Bee Adam and be contented of the stuff he’s supposed to do like being a stirrer or a krelman, which he doesn’t really like at all, do you think he got the chance to experienced life outside the hive?

If he didn’t believe that he can do it, do you think he got the chance to see the world other than the inside of their hive?

Why do you need to believe in yourself?

Many people failed to live the life they have always wanted. They failed to stand up on their dreams and realized their ambitions and just give up on the first obstacle they encountered on their journey.

You know what’s the main cause? They do not believe in themselves. They have doubts that they can do it.

Believing in yourself means that you are sure of yourself that you are going to do whatever you want to do even if others were against you, even if others tell you to stop because you can’t do it, even if others block your way and make it harder for you to reach.

Sometimes, people take you down because you’ve decided to take a big challenge or to do something that they failed to do. So for some reasons, these criticisms will put you under a lot of pressure and then you will start doubting yourself and your abilities too, and eventually, you’ll give up.

So the few people who succeeded are the ones who managed to be deaf on the things that put them on the negative track, those are the ones who managed to believe in themselves and continue on their path they’ve chosen.

They are just normal people, like you and me; the only difference is that, they have the will to believe in themselves.

So are you going to be the part of those who just give up because of what they hear on other’s deceiving lips? Or are you going to be the part of those few who succeeded?


I have a few things here to keep in mind:

You have to stop thinking that other people’s opinion is important. Some people think that unless everyone agrees with them totally, they are on a wrong trail. Definitely this is not correct.

Successful people often have the worst rejection. Some just wanted to convince you that what you think and what you do is wrong so that you will have to stop at that certain point. It’s a human nature especially when there’s envy and jealousy on the picture.

If you believed that the thing you’re after can make you succeed in life, then don’t listen on the negative words you hear. People who succeeded halfway to their goals and then suddenly just crumbled on the ground are those who were convinced that they don’t have what it takes to succeed or to reach their ambitions.

If you want to listen then to critics, always remember to never let them convince you that you are less than you are.

Building self-confidence in your judgement will make you stronger even more. If you went against what those people want from you and succeeded, you will end up being more confident in yourself.

But in one time or another you fail, consider the reasons first why you fail. Everyone fails to achieve some goals they’ve set for themselves but if you just take a moment and learn from it, and then you will likely to survive in the future.

Do your best and believe in yourself. This is the first step towards success.

And a full cup of power from God that He will give you the strength and courage to face these trials. Ask for His guidance always.

Feeling the pressure from criticism is natural, that you start to doubt yourself and your truly owned abilities and then will eventually say “I give up”. It's natural I would say, but making it as a reason for not going forward is the lamest excuse one can have.

Nobody can make you feel insecure or inferior without your permission. Don’t let them say you can’t do it because the way I see it, you can.

Don’t let their doubts bother you at all. Put all the armors you need to fight those negative criticisms – hard work, dedication and commitment and most of all the trust and belief on yourself.

Just believe in your dreams even when others don’t. Life is way too short to dwell on what others think. You have your own mind and body to take care of in the first place.

Fuel the passion within you; you don’t need their approval for you to move on, for you to make your own choice and do what’s best for you.

And don’t ever let them hold you down because if you’re weak enough to crash the chains, then they will hold you there.


So I would guess you already knew who Bee Barry is.


Bee Barry, the ordinary bee from the hive, became a part of the Royal Nectar Force who calls themselves the Pollen Jocks. Adams’ opinion did not stop little Bee Barry from becoming who he wanted himself to be.


Always remember that nobody can bring you down and nobody’s opinion can stop you from following your dreams!

Hi unknown spy, believing in yourself is very important, if you don't believed in yourself others won't. no matter how small you are , if you are an ordianry person, an actress or an actor, an employee or governments officials, whatever you are in this world, the most important this is believing yourself can do anything, I always have this saying that I always kept in mind , " IF OTHERS CAN DO , WHY CAN'T I? " . just believe and you can do it ! This is a nice hub unknown spy ! voted up !

Hi unknown spy :) I enjoyed reading your article a lot! :) The topic of faith, believing in yourself and pursuing a life of your dreams are among my favourites. I agree that people should stop worrying about other peoples' opinions. As you put it: "Life is way too short to dwell on what others think." One good way to do it is to work on your self-esteem regardless of disapproval (and approval too) of others. I noticed that when I don't rely on positive feedback from others too much, then the words of negativity don't have too much power over me either. It doesn't mean I don't notice approval. Of course I do and I appreciate it and I'm always grateful! But the feeling of "I can do it, I believe in myself" is not build on that :)

BlueUmbrella, this is what I always feel, you are soo true.

" I noticed that when I don't rely on positive feedback from others too much, then the words of negativity don't have too much power over me either."

Long time ago, I always rely on positive feedback of other people. And it feels good. But then when negativity came, it buries deep inside of me. So i'm slowly changing the way I see and what I believe.

I loved the opening paragraph of your Hub, it is so clear and thought provoking!

In my case, I sometimes doubt my dreams could come true because I can´t think of the "how". Many authors talk about not focusing on the how but for me it is somewhat difficult not to think about it. Maybe I just lack in faith.

Hello Claudia :)

Thank you for reading and leaving such a kind word. I think the 'how' also play a vital role in reaching for your dreams. With 'how' you can construct the plans and ideas needed for your strategies.

Thank you Kjf! I've known a friend here that he really relies on the opinion of others. What matters to him is what others say. I told him to stop thinking that way and follow what he wants..sometimes he'll ask me for dinner to talk (were friends), and when i say yes, he'll come up with all the excuses, like what if we'll be seen by other people or what will other people think that we go out for dinner or what will people think if they saw us..like that.. he's so crazy about the opinions of others.
