Cultivating Self Belief


“Our doubts are traitors, and make us lose the good we oft might win, by fearing to attempt.”
William Shakespeare

Self doubt is one of the major obstacles to living the life we truly deserve. These doubting thoughts drag down our spirit, crushes our ambitions, and prevents us from achieving all that we can. We all have a pesky voice inside our head that tell us we are not good enough, not strong enough and incapable of doing the things we dream of.

Most of the time, feelings of self doubt are attached to memories of times in the past when we failed to achieve something or when somebody else told us that we were not good enough. It is important not to dwell on those moments. Try to ground yourself and think about the now. Just because we were not able to accomplish something before does not mean we can not do it again. Every day is a new start and a new chance to go for what we really want. We can learn from the past.

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemies. If you tell yourself that you cannot do something, then you probably will not even try it in the first place. Have faith in yourself, tell yourself that you are just as capable as the next person of achieving your dreams, and stop listening to the voice inside that keeps saying “I can’t.”

Focus on your successes, the times when you felt proud of what you did, when you learnt something new. By keeping these positive self images in mind you are in a better place to perpetuate the success.

Focus on your successes today, cultivate your self belief.

“What the mind can conceive and believe, and the heart desire, you can achieve.”
Norman Vincent Peale
