If you cannot believe that you can be what you want or have what you want or achieve any goal you set for yourself, it is almost a done deal that you will not achieve the things you want. If you can’t believe it’s possible or that you are able then why should anyone else believe you can or that you are capable? The most common reason for failure is people’s lack of belief in themselves. If you don’t believe you can do it, say it, be it etc. then it is highly unlikely that you will indeed do it, say it and be it!
Napoleon Hill once said “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.”
You put a spoke in the wheel if you do not believe that what you want is possible. Your world is indeed your oyster and you can have the desires of your heart. But the moment you start thinking that you cannot achieve that, or you are not worthy to receive it or that you should not be setting your sights on better, higher things then you pour water on the flames of your desires! You will simply get what you are expecting for yourself. So what are you expecting?
Believing in yourself is a personal thing. It is a choice that only you can make. You can choose to believe you are capable of achieving all that you desire, that you can do it or you can choose to look down on yourself and believe that you are nothing and that you will never amount to anything! I am certainly not going to argue with you!
Believing in yourself is an attitude; the way you see the world will determine how you see yourself and whether you believe in yourself or not. So many people don’t achieve because they don’t believe that they have what it takes. It can all change. The moment you decide that you are no longer going to short change yourself, that you are going to believe in yourself and grow from there your life will change!
Creating an attitude of belief in yourself takes times if you have spent many years walking all over yourself! It also helps if you are surrounded by people who are supportive. However, most of us have come from broken-homes, broken relationships etc. and those experiences impact heavily on us for as long as we allow them to.
Every moment is a moment of creation. Use this moment to decide that you will believe that you are worthy; that you have what it takes to achieve your goals and the life you desire. This is your turning point. It will not be long before you have proof before your eyes of what an Attitude of Belief in Yourself can manifest for you.
Stop this minute saying “I can’t”, “I don’t know”, “maybe”. Just let it go! Believe that you can make things happen in your life by having a “Can Do” attitude. It is easy to take the action steps to achieve something if you think it is possible to achieve that thing. If you think it is impossible then it will become impossible for you to take the steps required to achieve the thing. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
As you sow, so shall you reap. You sow negativity about your yourself and you will reap negativity. You sow positive thoughts, words and actions into your life and you shall reap likewise.
Richard Bach, award winning author once said “Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can!”
Richard Bach was right whether you believe it or not.
