Believe in You

Updated on April 15, 2018

Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Believe in yourself

I believed in myself through all my struggles in a new country.

I knew I had no other option, had to go a different path and see for myself.

To be able to grasp the new lifestyle was a problem from day one.

However, I took each step with ease to know more in this new life.

My fair understanding in communication with the local people briefed me up with a new lifestyle.

  • It came about when I had my own way much later in my marriage.

I proved to myself, I can do anything I wanted to when I opened my first bank account in a foreign country.

Since then, I gained independence in my daily chores. It is something one has to do on their own, to be independent.

  • How did I accomplish such goals?

  • I believed in myself!

I recognized my skills in my early twenties, and did not know much of anything.

I knew then as I do now, the good things about me. I put on efforts into emotion.

Being married and all, made me be that housewife kind of woman, and not to look further than that. I stayed that way for a few years.

One day, I just started doing my own stuff and from then on I went on to do for myself.

I realized it was time I got up and did what I wanted to, how, and when I wanted to.

I started believing more in myself when I moved to Croatia.

In the past I couldn't think so independently.

The fear of living had stopped me from living my normal life.

Also, married life restricted me from helping myself. Most of what I could have tried for myself was always attempted by other members of the family.

Now I am free to explore my world of life.

I am comfortable with my ideas and decisions.

I have to believe in myself to move on.

I set my goals and follow it.

I think about what I want to do, and go for it.

I did not know then but know now, that fear had kept me from experiencing my good life.

I believed in myself, and loved to do what I had fun with, and had enjoyed.

I learned to be more kinder to people, even if they were not my favorite people.

I always knew that if I lack my belief in God, finding that belief in me will be rare.

I have many thoughts in my mind and one of which really sticks with me.

In believing in myself with a dedicated mind, and with the pride that I have, I know quitting will never be easy for me. I can only win at what I plan to do.

I believed in myself when I took over great challenges from those who couldn't do for themselves.

Confident living

Be Motivational

High self-esteem

I had and still have faith in my own abilities. When I saw the challenges I approached had gone well, I accomplished my goals with merit.

I may sound too positive, believe me that is how I have become over the years.

I have had my ups and downs, but got right back on that saddle to ride my journey all over again.

People believe in different things, and have different challenges in their daily lives. I am not the only one who has experienced a move to a foreign country.

It doesn't matter who you are, or where you come from just coping with change is a great challenge. If you believe in yourself you can do it too.

No matter whom you face up to, or what you are up against, life goes on.

To win you got to believe in yourself.

Pray and know with all your strength God will get you through those harsh times.

In my life, in the past, I had not known myself to be so positive, confident, or such a challenging person.

  • I had to be tried and tested.

  • Well, that is exactly what happened to me.

I was put to the test and I had succeeded.

It was difficult for me to actually believe I could speak a foreign language. I know from within that not everyone can stay in such challenges.

  • The belief is not always strong.

I believe in myself through an open mind, and through the fun times I have had with my family.

Life itself is my great belief of living to the fullest.

Most people look at me with a different attitude but they have to as all people won't look at me in the same way.

Rejections did not make me lose my belief in myself.

I continued to write because I believed in myself. I know not to give up on my dreams.

If you doubt what dreams you have you could feel powerless.

Listen to the voice inside of you and take it from there.

Don't think insecurely, think with power.

You can not be the leader if you think without belief.

When you doubt your goals you lose your confidence.

You can become unhappy, and feel everything has been taken away from you.

Sometimes the career choices you make when older, are not what you really wanted from your childhood years.

You will find disappointment in your choices, but you can better these choices in believing in yourself.

Don't think or be afraid of what people will say about you.

Failing is part of getting up and being successful. Even to this present time, most people fear what others will think, or say about their choices.

  • A wrong attitude toward life's decisions.

Once you fear, achievements fade away.

Knowledge is power, use what you know best to move on.

Eventually you get to the point of realizing that you got to believe in what you do.

When you have a different perspective on life you will see how good things can be for you.

Make a note of what is holding you back.

Look up to yourself and don't be afraid to get on with your life.

Always say YES to what you want to do, and think carefully about what you are not sure of.

Meet your Achievements

Some people can hold you back from living avoid listening to those people who won't let you go forward.

You must love yourself and believe in yourself.

Trust is another great truth of life.

Avoid being your worst enemy rather focus on being your own good self.

  • Always think you deserve better.

You can feel self-doubt something you are not able to get rid of. In time you can clear that from your mind. Don't let self-doubt swallow your plans for success.

I believe my life has changed and have made me a strong person to move on so easily.

It was not easy but with my positive ideas all felt easy to pass by.

If I had left Croatia and went back to South Africa I would have not known of my abilities.

I stayed and faced up to what I knew can only get better in time.

Words are only words to you, but if you find these words meaningful, you will know what I mean by Believing in yourself.

  • Make it a priority in your life.

It takes time and with a happy and simple living lifestyle you can make your life so believable.

Believe in Positivism

What makes you believe in yourself?

      You should be very proud of yourself now that you can feel better and achieve things! I agree that sometimes being married or in a marriage-like relationship can be a bit restrictive in terms of being able to set yourself free. Voted useful!
