Believe And Achieve

Updated on August 12, 2013

Believe in Yourself First

How can anyone achieve anything in life if you don't believe you can? One must believe in themselves that they can achieve anything they set out to do.

Believe and achieve is my new philosophy in life now that I know first hand it does work and it is real. This simple saying could make a difference in your life as well, if you believe it will.

If you don't believe in yourself, how can anyone else believe in you. You must have total confidence that you are capable of achieving any goal you set out to do.

Believe in Yourself

Having That Self Confidence

One thing you should always remember and say to yourself, and that is, YOU are the best in what you do and who you are.

Never down yourself or think you are a nothing, because thinking that way you will more than likely wind up to be nothing and I'm sure no one wants a life with a title of Nothing.

Be proud of who you are and get that self confidence in yourself.  Tell yourself that you can and will achieve anything you set out to do.

Can You Do It ?

Many of us have thought of a goal that you wanted to achieve, but you always had that one negative thought in the back of your mind, "can I really pull this off and reach my goal"?

As many people that know me, I had a goal over one year ago and that goal was to find my sobriety and get my life back on track. Well, I must tell you that this goal I wanted to achieve seemed so far out of reach, only because I didn't think I could do it.

Right there I was dead wrong in my thinking.  I didn't give myself enough credit and doubted myself.  "I didn't believe in myself".

After reconsidering my wrongful thoughts I tried to change my negative thought into a positive thought, saying, YES, I CAN AND WILL BEAT THIS ALCOHOL ADDICTION!

So, here I am writing this hub clean and sober, now over one year and counting.  This is an example of what positive thoughts and believing in yourself can do and what you can achieve in life if you truly want it for yourself.

Remember, no goal will ever be reach and accomplished with a negative thoughts of such.

When someone wants something bad enough they are willing to go out on the limb and give it their best shot. If you believe you can't achieve something and not even try then you will be sitting right where you are empty handed and a failure.

The word failure is a pretty harsh word and that word is not in my vocabulary and it shouldn't be in yours either.

In order to succeed in anything in life you must at least try and if you fail the first time you can not give up. You must keep trying until you have achieved that goal you set out to do.

Keep Positive and Take Action

Having a Positive Attitude is the one thing you need to have if you want to achieve anything in life. Having a Positive Attitude goes hand in hand with believing you can do something.

Say you had this goal or a vision of something you would like to achieve, but you are thinking with negativity in you mind. Maybe the words might be, "I really don't know if I can do this". What do you think the outcome will be with you accomplishing this goal with that negative thought that you are thinking and saying to yourself?

Now say, you had this goal or vision of something you would like to achieve, but now your are thinking positive and saying to yourself that you can and will be able to do this.

What do you think the outcome would be now thinking with positivity? You have a great chance of achieving that goal thinking with that positive attitude.


The bottom line here is if you believe you will indeed achieve anything in life, but you MUST think positive and never let anything get in your way of your dreams and goals you set for yourself.

Believe in yourself and tell yourself that you are a winner and nothing will ever stop you from achieving your goals in life.


Be the Best You Can !

      @ Rich, thanks for stopping by again and reading my work. And that is the truth, never ever give up because by doing so you will remain where you are and achieve nothing.

      God Bless you and your family~!

      A great message and a reminder that if we don't believe in ourselves then how can we achieve anything in life? First we must have a goal then believe we can achieve it and finally do all that is necessary to achieve our goal. And so long as we don't quit we'll achieve our goal in the end.

      Cheers for sharing and God bless!
