There are many things in life that can make a difference in the quality of your life. However, if you have been reading my blog most of those things, in my opinion, are not tangible. The true quality of one’s life is not found in stuff. There is no doubt stuff will make you happy, but only briefly. In regards to keeping a smile on your face, there is one important piece of advice that I have. Believing in yourself will turn on a positive energy force.
Believe in happiness
Say what? How is that going to make me happy? When you start to believe in yourself you stop worrying about what the rest of the world thinks about you. Plus to be honest, your opinion is the only one that matters when it comes to your life. Some of us are born with a chip on our shoulder where we never quite feel we belong. We think that life is out to get us and that nothing good will ever come of our lives.
Believing is greater than doubting
Believing in oneself can be easier said than done, but if you don’t, no one else will. Have you ever been at work and someone has had a brilliant idea only to say “but that might not work.” Who are they kidding? If they say that, my mind has already discounted their idea that I thought would work. Why? Because if they are doubting themselves it surely won’t work. Doubting oneself is probably one of the easiest ways to stop yourself from achieving greatness.
Push the negatives away
You can’t achieve greatness if you don’t believe in yourself. When you don’t believe in yourself you have already stopped yourself short of your goal. If I think that I am going to fail, why should I even bother to try? Our minds are extremely powerful and when we put negative ideas into them our actions fall short. So stop beating yourself up with your negative words and actions because you will go nowhere.
Charge yourself with positive energy
Think of it this way, positive energy is what keeps you charged and going full steam ahead. Add in some negative energy and it will slow you down to an eventual stop. Your belief in yourself and in the possibilities of life will get you where you want to go. If you take away the power of believing in yourself, you will not go anywhere. Have faith in yourself and know that anything you put your positive energy into you will accomplish.
Never give up the fight
A little, “I can” will push you along to an, “I did”. The tiniest bit of, “I can’t” will stop you at an “I won’t”. Also, believing that you can do something, doesn’t necessarily mean that you can do it faster or better than anyone else unless you want it to. Believing in yourself means that you will prove the naysayers wrong by doing what you believe you can. This is because you won’t give up no matter how long the journey is. Believing in yourself is a strong positive that will last if you keep on believing. Don’t give up the fight. You have this.
