Believe in Yourself!

Posted on July 27, 2015 by Melanie Brown

Have you ever started a project which you totally have faith in and believe that you can do it?

Then you tell a good friend and family members in the hope that they will be full of enthusiasm and support for you. However, they greet you with negativity and look at you as if you are totally devoid of any common sense.

This can have a profound effect on your confidence and result in you pushing your dreams to the back of your mind and often not pushing forward with them.

Why should we be worried about what others think of us? We actually need to have a strong conviction and faith in what we believe in and if we want to do it, nothing should come in our way and put us off.

I often hear the phrase that “what others think of us is none of our business” and do you know that is so true.

Instead of getting worried about the opinion of others, we should just believe in what we want to do and do it.

Here are a five simple steps which can help us to maintain a strong belief in ourselves and succeed in whatever we want to do:-

  1. Stop worrying about what others think. What matters is what you think.
  2. Don’t compare yourself to others. If you do, this will only weaken your belief in your goals. You are unique and this quality will strengthen your belief. When you waste time making comparisons, you allowing some irrelevant thing to steal your joy. You have to be focused about your goals and not the goals of others.
  3. Set goals. They give you focus and guide you to where you want to be.
  4. Use a journal to help you see the progress you are making and how far you have come. This means that you become more motivated in achieving your goals.
  5. Live your dreams. Don’t allow yourself to be put in a box defined by others. If you have a specific dream, then go for it. So many people are dissatisfied because they have been told that they must live in traditional roles and if they don’t there is something wrong with them. Do what makes you happy and have a strong belief to live out your dreams.

Remember not to let anyone put you down. Be strong in your own unique belief and you can achieve whatever you put your mind to.
