Believe in Yourself

Your Belief System

Our beliefs are generally formed in childhood. We have learnt these beliefs from our parents, our environment and the world around us.  

Our patterns of behaviour and attitudes are formed when, as young children or teenagers, we watch and learn about attitudes and behaviours from our parents, teachers and any outside influences we are exposed to.  We learn about what is acceptable and what is not, and we start forming our own opinions and belief systems, based on our own experiences.  These are our shaped and learnt behaviours.  We learn that being polite is rewarded and that being rude is not acceptable.

When processing new information or experiences as an adult, those core beliefs systems that we have formed and adopted in our early years can sometimes be challenged, but mostly we go back to our core beliefs as that is where we feel secure.

The Problem of Self Doubt

Self Belief

Core beliefs of parents are handed down the generations and they form the basis for our sometimes flawed, incorrect belief systems.  When this happens, we can become self-doubters, feel insecure and unnecessary anxiety can take hold.  We begin doubting ourselves and fighting against these ingrained beliefs proves to be very difficult.  To work through these, we need to have a positive mindset because overcoming limiting beliefs can be challenging.

In life, we limit ourselves with these learnt limiting self-beliefs that somehow we focus on when faced with new challenges, like entering a new career or trying out something completely different.

Also, others can influence our thinking very easily, if we let them, putting up blockers for our vision for the future that we have set for ourselves.  Peer pressure can play a role in confusing us at times when we want to break out of the mould and set our sights on something personally challenging.  Others will have their own limiting mindset, so don’t be influenced by them.  We can listen and may take their advice.  We can ask others but we must draw our own conclusions.

Don’t let others stand in the way of what you really want to do.  Parents, friends and associates may criticise, or their comments may come from the best of intentions, but do your own research and listen to someone who has a more open mind.  If they are someone that you can bounce ideas off, you will respect their advice.  Listen to them and ultimately make up your own mind.

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT!

Our dreams can come true

Don’t let go of the dreams, passions and values you have set down for yourself.  Having put these in place, ultimately the decision is yours.  The sky is the limit when facing new challenges.  Anything can be achieved if you believe in yourself.

Believe in yourself, believe that things will happen.  Change will take place as you grow and learn.  Don’t go through life missing opportunities.  Grab them with both hands when they come along; learn, act and inspire others to do the same.

How to Change your MINDSET

Having made the decision, don’t doubt your abilities. If you need to take steps to improve your skills, do so.  Do everything in your power to achieve your dreams.  Your abilities are unique to you and belief in yourself is the first step in your journey to success. You are on your way to YOUR FUTURE SELF.

Every morning of every day, say to yourself, “I BELIEVE IN ME.  I am capable of so much.  I am willing to learn everything it takes to be successful, for I am going to succeed and go forward in my life, because I am ME.  I am Positive and Confident”.

Think positive

We all suffer from nerves.  It can happen to anyone.  It happens to famous musicians before going on stage.  We actually need such feelings of fear to spur us on to overcome things… when we are starting a new job, meeting new people, taking on a new challenge, sitting for an exam, having to give a speech in front of a group of people, maybe your peers. These nerves can affect us in everyday life and can cause ANXIETY and SELF-DOUBT and it can affect some of us more than others.  

I am a strong believer in SELF-TALK .  Look in the mirror and tell yourself how good you are, what skills you have, how you are so capable at particular skills.  Look yourself in the eye and say you can overcome what’s holding you back with thoughts of SELF DOUBT.  Tell yourself you are going to change, you’re going to be a more positive person who always looks for opportunities and is grateful and thankful for opportunity and everything around you.  

Your attitude towards everything should be from a positive mindset and this is critical to your success and belief in yourself.

The Power of a Positive Attitude

Healthy and Happy

How do you face a new day?

Our lives each day can be so affected by the past day’s events that they stop us from moving forward in our lives.  Each day should be viewed as a new beginning, a chance to change and grasp the future. Don’t be bogged down by yesterday’s events.  Start the new day with new opportunities to make new friends, start a new project, a day to invest in new ideas for the future.

A New Day

I am fortunate to be a person who wakes up in the morning ready to go, with lots of energy and enthusiasm.  Each day to me is about advancing, finishing a project or getting started on something new.  I look forward to each day with anticipation as I love creating and designing.  

Don’t worry about the future. 

 If you have a positive attitude, the future will take care of itself.  Don’t hanker for the past either but create your future in the present.  Life is a gift – make the most of it and don’t waste a moment of it.  Look forward, not backwards, unless it is to cherish the memories that you create each day in the present.

Tomorrow is a New Day

Decide that tomorrow will be the day for change, a new start to your future.  This attitude will lead to a new way of thinking and looking at tomorrow’s events.  Tomorrow is a new day, the first day of the rest of your life.  Face it with excitement and anticipation.

What prevents you from facing each day with anticipation? 

For many it is a lack of money. If you wish you had more money, you are not alone.  Most people don’t have enough money so life is a struggle, but it is possible to be happy with the resources that are available.  Don’t allow a lack of money to stop you from doing what you really want in life.  Money is just a means to an end.  Many people find a way to generate more than enough money, not just to survive, but to go on and live their dream and help others to live theirs as well.  And this is the key.
