Have faith in yourself.

Faith, something in yourself, something everybody needs. Easy to say, not so easy to do. However, without faith in yourself you will not get far.

Have you heard the saying, "Faith can move mountains". That saying is absolutely true.

Without faith in yourself all of your hopes, dreams, goals and aspirations will never be met. You will not obtain that in life for which you yearn.

That said, how do you work towards having that all important faith?

To start with, setting small goals for yourself and achieving them will take you a long way towards helping you believe in yourself and have faith that you can achieve your goals.

Take a good hard look at the friend you have surrounded yourself with. Are they nay-sayers or are they go-getters? Are they negative or are they positive? You need to rethink your friendships if you are surrounded by negative people. It is important to be with positive people.

You need to turn your negative thoughts to positive. If you start thinking you can't achieve what you are working towards stop and ask yourself "Why can't I".

Think about all of your little successes, better still, write out a list of them. This will reassure you that you can and have achieved that you previously thought you couldn't.

One of the most important is to allow yourself to fail. Pick yourself up and try, try again. What is the worst that can happen?
