To live a life of beautiful accomplishments, you must fully believe in yourself and your ability.
Find me an extremely successful person who doesn’t greatly believe in themselves?It’s not possible. Steve Jobs, Wale Adenuga, Bill Gates, Aliko Dangote, and Mark Cuban are just a few highly successful individuals who benefited greatly from this confidence. My point here is their strong desire to get up again and again when they failed while in pursuit of creating the life of their dreams.
The reality is, as a business owner, an employee, a student, parent, or whosoever you are, you are most definitely going to fail and experience a setback at some point. That’s not to discourage you, that’s just life. But when it does happen, and when your belief is strong, no failure or setback will have the power to completely wipe you out of pursuing life time goals.
Believing in yourself is the game changer.
As human beings we naturally have the tendency to get stuck on the negative and think about all of our failures for the day, instead of counting our achievements and identify all the good we have done. It doesn’t really matter when, but the key is to just get in the habit of capturing all of your achievements. You can write it down in your book, phone, laptop, or paste it on your bedroom wall. This will bring you a complete sense of joy that will let you know that you have done some outstanding things in the past and remind you that even bigger things can happen in the future.
So also, praise yourself regularly. With power and conviction, repeat phrases such as, “I am the best at what I do,” “There is nothing that I can’t do when I fully commit myself,” and “Nothing is impossible for me to do because I am blessed by God”.
If you don’t have a huge amount of belief in yourself, then there is no way you can expect anyone else to believe in you. And because of this belief we are willing to test, experiment, and try new things even when we feel uncertain. If you don’t believe that it’s possible to make new things work, then it’s hard to make any progress. I don’t care how good the ideas are, nothing will work for you if you don’t believe in it. And more importantly, nothing will work if you don’t believe in yourself.
I believe that it is possible to raise the bar in your own life even if the world around you accepts average. I believe if you want a better life for yourself, you can make it happen.
