Believing in yourself is one of the factors to success. Find me an extremely successful person who didn’t and doesn’t believe in himself.
To live a life of high achievement you must believe in yourself and in the power of your potentials. The world we live in is extremely competitive and challenging and because of this, people tend to doubt themselves and their abilities especially when they meet with failure.
It is understandable that as humans we have that little trace of self–doubt and vulnerability and sometimes we are driven by these to see ourselves as less capable.
We use words like “I don’t think I can do it, I don’t think these ideas work for me”, and some even go as far as saying “I don’t believe in myself”.
If Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King, Michael Jordan and other great individuals didn’t believe in themselves, they wouldn’t be great men today. It all boils down to our level of willingness to remain determined to make it during the good and the bad times.
The road is never smooth. In fact, for most individuals, it could be very narrow. For me, I refuse to be sucked into uncertainty no matter the condition of things.
Your belief helps shape your vision. Personally, I have grown to a stage where I don’t see failure as a barrier to success, rather it serves as a booster to my motivation. When your belief is strong no failure or setback will have the power to completely wipe you out.
Also, as humans, we naturally get stocked on negative thought about our losses instead of counting our wins and finding our balance for a better tomorrow.
Talk to yourself like a winner, I learned this from my dad. He sees himself as a champion and taught I and my sibling never to see ourselves as victims.
We create who we become, it is all about your affirmation, say positive things to yourself, this helps to recondition your thinking process. Also, remain thankful for whatever you are and whatever you have. Basically, have a good and positive approach toward life and all that it has to offer. If you don’t believe in yourself, then there is no way you expect anyone else to believe in you.
According to Bob Feller, “Every day is a new opportunity, you either close to build on yesterday’s success or put its failure behind and start over again. That’s the way life is, with a new game every day.”
