“Encourage yourself, believe in yourself, and love yourself. Never doubt who you are.”
Our perceptions of life, whether true or false, make us the person we believe we are. Our identity and quality of life are based largely on those perceptions. They give us our identity…. They make us who we think we are. We then act like the person our perceptions have created.
If we believe we are a person who cannot succeed, then success will elude us. We will subconsciously create failure as a self-fulfilling prophecy. If we believe we are a person who can succeed, then we will act accordingly. Again, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Everyone says bad things about themselves sometimes in their head, but if you let it become common, frequent, or really negative, you are not doing yourself any favours.You really can become your own worst douber. Fight this urge by saying two good things about yourself every time you catch yourself saying something bad.
If you have the belief that you can do it, you will acquire the ability, gaining what ever experience is needed, even if you may not have it at the beginning.
“People become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.”
Norman Vincent Peale
