While it may come as no surprise to you, most of us seek out validation from our family and peers before we feel confident enough to pursue our inner aspirations. However, this validation does little to nothing to determine the outcome of your future successes.
The truth is the only thing standing in the way of your success is you! We tend to be our own worst enemy when it comes to takin a leap of faith. We can easily get pulled into the trap of self-doubt when others criticize or show little support of our plans. Believing in yourself gives you the courage and power to fight for your aspirations. That’s why it’s imperative to have faith in yourself and cultivate your inner confidence because everything you acquire in this life inevitably results from the belief that you have inside telling you anything is possible. When you believe in yourself, you don’t need the validation of others to fuel your journey.
“Self-belief is not self-centered. We can only fight effectively for others if we already believe in ourselves” -Carla H. Krueger

There are several benefits that come with this new way of thinking. Below you will see the benefits of believing in yourself and how this mindset can positively affect your daily life:

Start Believing in Yourself Today
- BE GRATEFUL FOR THE ABUNDANCE IN YOUR LIFE: When you see the blessings you already have in your life, believing in yourself is much easier. Often, when things go wrong, it is easy to ignore the many things that are going right. By practicing gratitude every day and noticing the positives in life. You will have a lot more faith in yourself.
- CONQUER YOUR LIMITING BELIEFS: Often the difficulties we experience while striving to believe in ourselves stems from not having anything to believe in. Without a clear vision for your goals in life, you are stuck wondering what’s next? if you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know which way to go? Start by developing a clearer vision of what it is you want. Then as you develop strategies for realizing that vision, you can start with one task at a time. As you cross off each task you will see your self-confidence increase and your end goal will not seem so far away.
- PRACTICE SELF-LOVE: Often we are reminded to treat others as we would like to be treated but do you treat yourself how you want to be treated? It is crucial in life that we treat ourselves with the same love, respect, and dignity we offer to others
- ESTABLISH NEW GOALS: When we set new goals for ourselves, they should require us to step out of our comfort zone to an extent. By stepping out of our comfort zones, we effectively fortify our self-confidence because we took a chance on and believed in our own abilities to succeed.
- BE YOUR OWN CHEERLEADER: We must ensure our motivation levels are high in order to stay dedicated to the goals we’ve set for ourselves. By understanding the motivation behind our desires, you will often find that the tasks associated with achieving your goals are easier to accomplish. This is because your belief in yourself is so strong it mimics a ‘do or die trying’ mindset. With this level of determination and self-belief, anything is possible.
- FACE YOUR FEARS: By creating goals that are purposeful to your overall life, you can successfully face your fears to continue achieving your goals. Setting and achieving goals will help you overcome fear and leave you feeling accomplished.
- DEVELOP A GROWTH MINDSET: Failures are inevitable in life, but that doesn’t mean they should have control over your thoughts. We must remember we are human after all. When you’re aware that you can learn from your mistakes, you’re much more likely to make them. By applying the growth mindset, we can evaluate our mistakes and try again. Truthfully, you cannot become successful without a growth mindset in place. There will be many learning opportunities (mistakes) along the way that will require you to adapt (grow).
- DRAW ON YOUR INNER STRENGTH: You are your #1 fan, and you need to encourage yourself to take chances and make the necessary changes to achieve your goals. If you are feeling overwhelmed about a particular goal, break it down until you reach a step you believe you can accomplish. Your self-belief will grow from here as you successfully navigate these challenges and gain more confidence in your abilities.
- UNLOCK THE POWER OF PROXIMITY: Whatever you want to achieve in life, always surround yourself with those who build you up and not tear you down. By associating with successful people, you evoke the laws of attraction (what you think, you become). When you utilize the power of proximity, you can gain a network of trusted individuals who will mentor you, support you and challenge you.
