A Positive Tonic




‘Your problem is you’re… too busy holding onto your unworthiness.’’
Ram Dass

Self-belief is vital. I wrote in my earlier post ‘Being confident’ ….a prerequisite for self confidence is a sense of self belief. How many things have you not done or tried because you lacked belief in yourself? Your level of self-belief is not set in stone, it is alterable.


Your beliefs are formed through repeated thoughts, and the only reason they hold any weight is because you have decided or agreed that they are true.


In my experience most people who lack self-belief have a strong inclination to filter out the positive aspects about themselves. Do you see or acknowledge your achievements, or do you obsess about all your failures? If you do that, then when you look at yourself, all you see is failure, which means that you do not believe in yourself.

Consciously work on identifying and acknowledging your results and strengths. Spend some time each day thinking about them, even if you are not used to it and it feels unfamiliar. This will help incorporate your strengths and successes in your self-image and thus you will gradually begin to believe in yourself more and more.


Self-belief is a reflection of how good you are at handling the various aspects of life. And the more you grow as a person, the more of a reason you have to believe in yourself.


Remember it is this combination of developing yourself, challenging yourself and deliberately thinking about yourself in more constructive ways that gives you the ideal recipe for building self-belief. Remember your way of thinking creates good or bad outcomes


Self belief is a positive tonic that helps people grow beyond their dreams. What are you doing today to develop yourself?


Your belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe.’
