Who will believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself?
Many of us, including myself, have gotten where we are in life because of what we believe, not just what we think. You believe what you see on the surface. The shadow beliefs may sometimes prevent you from living the life you deserve. If you ignore the voices in your head telling you that you’re not good enough, you’re not worthy enough, you’re not smart enough, or you’re not enough, you’ll likely act on those beliefs rather than what you know to be accurate or what you want to be true for yourself. However, you don’t become what you wish to since so much desiring is about living in the space of what you don’t have. When you think about why you’ve gotten to where you are in life, you’ll see that your choices have been based on what you believe to be true for yourself.
Hearing Oprah Winfrey’s life story taught me this, and she gives motivational and inspirational speeches. I appreciate her encouraging other people to believe in themselves and be patient with their progress. We all make mistakes and realize that our skills don’t improve consistently but in steps. It’s heartbreaking to think that some people cared about our results rather than our effort to get where we wanted to be. As human beings, we are not always contented with our current circumstances. We all have ongoing needs and desires, and the urge to get results is constant. We believed that getting results was more important than focusing on our progress.
Is it too difficult for you to believe in yourself?
Nothing worth having or progressing for is easy. You don’t have to show that you’re excellent at anything right away since your progress isn’t a straight path and requires self-confidence. As I previously said, our skills don’t improve consistently but in steps. It is a skill that you may improve upon. If you want to grow better at anything, you may learn about it, practice it, and improve it. And enjoy the progress of believing in yourself. I should know that my life is a story of self-confidence.
Since then, I’ve struggled with self-confidence; I’ve been told that I don’t have what it takes and that I’m not good enough, and I’ve allowed criticism to get the best of me. I don’t have enough people who believe in and support me, and I’m being told these things even though it’s all I want to do. When all I want is to be a part of something great, I want to create something great. When people tell me that I’m not capable of great things, it knocks the wind out of me and crushes me. It nearly did for me, but I conquered it by believing in myself. And understanding the essence of progress has taught me that I can do anything when people assume that I can’t. Believing in myself has taught me that it opens up a world of opportunities. This may be challenging because we have been trained to doubt ourselves throughout our lives. We must retrain our minds to overcome our worries and self-doubt to boost our self-esteem and confidence.
Everything you have results from believing in yourself and that everything is possible. Here, I’d want to share why it’s crucial to focus on the process rather than the result in life. The essential steps to believing in oneself, which I’ve continued to practice and live by as I’ve progressed.
Have Trust In Yourself.
Self-trust entails being completely honest with oneself most of the time. It is the simplest thing to put your confidence in yourself: to look for your needs and wellbeing. Rather than aiming for perfection, treat yourself with love and compassion instead of criticism. You know that you can overcome any challenge, and you don’t want to give up on yourself.
Allow Room For Mistakes.
No one is flawless; therefore, mistakes are unavoidable. Making mistakes helps you to grow as a person and learn from them. When you’re focused on accomplishing a particular goal, you’re less likely to attempt new things or take risks that might result in a better result than you anticipated.
Obtain Fulfillment From The Effort
Success is a journey, not a destination. When you are concerned with the process, you are happier to be in the present moment and enjoy it. You’re involved, and you want to take advantage of every opportunity and path accessible to you since it’s all about learning and gaining experience at the end of the day.
Let’s face it: when it comes to providing results, there’s a lot of pressure. You’re willing to take shortcuts if they help you get things done immediately to get the point across. When you pay attention to the process, things that aren’t important go away. There’s less stress. What important is that you achieve whatever goals you set for yourself, regardless of whether you win or lose. To put it another way, you are not disturbed by anybody. It’s less about pleasing others and more about overcoming yourself.
Give your best and be happy about it.
Enjoying the fruits of your hard work may make you feel like you did well. When you pay attention to the process, you get that. If things don’t go the way you want them to, that doesn’t matter. You’re grateful you kept going. If you’re going to succeed, Make sure you don’t put too much stock in one result. You will make yourself feel bad and down if you do this. It would be better if you were happy with how hard you worked to reach your goal, not how well you did.
Self-confidence and bravery are most strongly correlated with self-belief. Progress is not necessarily linear. This suggests that time travel is impossible; it implies that advancement is like ascending a mountain with ups and downs. We are on our path to success. Setbacks should not stop us from achieving our goals.
