Have you ever wondered why you aren’t successful or confident in your passions? I know I have, and for a long time I thought I wasn’t strong enough, smart enough, or motivated enough to reach my goals. My dreams were only dreams and I believed that I wouldn’t be good at what I wanted to do. I listened to other people, who told me that my dreams were too far out of reach; that I needed to ignore my passions and do something that was safe and in reach. I am here to tell you that you don’t need other people’s support in order to reach your goals and be successful in things that you are passionate about. You need your support.
You have to be your own biggest fan in order to be successful, and I realized this about a year ago. It’s not easy, but if you want to reach your goals, you have got to believe in yourself. If you can’t believe in yourself right away, fake it till you make it. Tell yourself you can, even if you aren’t convinced, and you will start to realize that the only thing stopping you, is you.
Reasons you should believe in yourself:
- No one else is going to do it for you. For a long time I believed that I needed other people to have faith in me in order to be successful, but this is a false belief. YOU need to believe in yourself to be successful. If you put your heart and soul into something, you will succeed because you believed that you could.
- If you believe in yourself, you will exude confidence. Confidence is something that has never come easily to me. I have aways been self conscious of myself and what I believe and think. Once I started to believe in myself and my passions, I had the confidence to talk about my thoughts, and actually post them on the internet.
- You will be able to do what you want to do. If you believe in yourself, you can do anything. If you put your mind to something, you can and will conquer it. You just have to know that you have the ability to do it, and you do! Never let yourself convince you that your dreams are too insane, or that you can’t do something. With hard work, dedication, and motivation, you can do anything you want!
God did not put us on this Earth to follow the path that everyone follows, or stick to traditional earthly roles. He put us here because we each have a specific, hand-crafted gift that we are meant to use, and it is up to us to find and conquer that gift. You weren’t put here to be ordinary, so don’t let anyone convince you that that’s what you are. You were created to make a difference, and you need to do that! But first, you need to believe in yourself so that you can do whatever you were designed to do.
