How much do you believe in yourself?
Or do you believe in what you can do and what you are capable of at all? Most people don’t. Not because they are not good at anything, quite the contrary, it is because they listen to what other people say and do not trust their abilities to break barriers and make things happen.
We all know that to achieve our dreams and aspirations in life, we have to believe that we can do it and deliver what needs to be done. Otherwise, we will remain as we are, and end up in our comfort zone because of fear.
Here are the things you can do to start believing in yourself more:
Determine who you are and what you want
Who do you spend your time with? Are you learning from them? Are they good influence in you, push you to be yourself? You have to analyze this and move on if they are not what you think they should be. Also, what do you want to happen and how do you want it to happen? No matter how much you try, it may not happen the way you have envisioned, but you would know what needs to be done at the very least.
Take one step at a time
You don’t have to take giant leaps if you feel you are not ready for it. Start small and take little steps. Do what you said you would and encourage yourself to try something new every day, even when it seems scary. Make a list and start ticking things off. Do this until you are ready to do something bigger. By then you would realize how capable you are and may even surprise yourself in a good way.
Challenge your perception
How do you view life and your existence? Are you happy to be alive? Your answer to all these questions should be positive. If it is the opposite, it is time you change your perception. Positive thoughts and actions bring about positive changes in one’s life and self-belief. This is a good place as any to start to be your own believer.
Dare yourself and go for it
What is it that you want to happen? Don’t take time doing complicated plans, just decide to go for it. You may not know where you are going or what you would do when something unexpected happens, but you will figure it out. So go ahead and dare yourself to set out to the unknown. You won’t regret it.
