“I seek strength, not to be greater than others, but to fight my greatest enemy, the doubts within myself”
It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not. If we don’t know that greatness is possible, we won’t bother attempting it. Many times I have had to try to do things which I thought I couldn’t , when I tried I realized that I actually could. And sometimes it takes more than one attempt. If ‘Plan A’ doesn’t work out, no problem, the alphabet has another 25 letters that would be happy to give you a chance to get it right! The wrong choices usually bring us to the right places, eventually. But you must believe you can do it to eliminate the self doubt.
Believe in yourself and you will do your best. Believing in yourself is the key to success in life.
Set goals. When you set goals, you have control.
Recognize when you achieve your goals, so that you will build your confidence.
Consider reasons you fail. Everyone fails to achieve some goal, but if you learn from the failure, you will be more likely to succeed in the future.
Listen to critics, but never let them convince you that you are less than you are. Some critics will tear you down to make themselves look bigger and better, while others will offer critical advice to help you make changes to improve yourself.
Give your time and energy to others. When you do this, you will get positive feed back and respect from others. These are building blocks for self respect…which is essential to believing in you.
Don’t give up on your dreams, goals or aspirations for you never know how right they truly are until you put them into action.
Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
