Day 18- Do you Believe in yourself?…And why things don’t work if you don’t

Do you find it hard to Believe or know what Believing is? Well, I hope you enjoy this read, it’s written for all those who have a hard time believing in what they want to do and also the one that do believe I’m so proud of you, keep going.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
John F. Kennedy

So, it’s New Year’s Day and I was thinking about what I’m thankful for, I’ve settled on one thing that seems to have made the difference in my life over and over again. I’m thankful that I believe in myself, even if no one else does or doesn’t.  This quality is partially who I am and partially the result of the family and friends that have supported me throughout my life. Regardless of where it comes from, it is one quality that allows me to not only talk about what I’m grateful for, but also to live it out.

Just remember – “Nothing will work if you don’t believe in it” – C by KB

There are a few things which affect and can lead to you not Believing in yourself,

Are You Determined To Fail?

There is an undercurrent of self–doubt and vulnerability. The unspoken thought that drives these questions is, “I don’t believe these ideas will work for me.” Or, stated another way, “I don’t believe I can make these ideas work. I don’t believe in myself.”

Worrying about not being able to implement a few diet changes is just one, tiny example of this fear. But a lack of belief in yourself will limit you no matter how great the ideas or opportunities are that you are exposed to.

For anyone who has doubts my questions would be, Why are you determined to make these ideas not work for you? Why are you searching for reasons why these ideas won’t succeed instead of figuring out a way to make something good happen?

The biggest difference between successful people and unsuccessful ones (in health, in business, and in life) is that successful people are determined to make the situation work for them rather than playing the role of the victim and searching for reasons why a situation won’t work. You need to be able to pick yourself up when you fail, and know if you believe in yourself you can pick yourself up from any situation. Not saying it will be all pretty and nice, you might go through difficult times and think this isn’t working but keep motivated in what you want to do. When I was younger I always wanted to do something for myself, I started my blog writing and at the beginning I wasn’t getting many readers, also from my Instagram many followers, but I’ve continued and I hope to get better keep going. I’ve noticed I’ve got more followers and readers now but by believing in myself this has helped me gain the confidence I need to do what I want.

No idea will work for every person on the planet, but many ideas can work for most people … if you believe that you can make them work. You have to be willing to not just think differently, but to also to experiment with new ideas and trust that you’ll discover a way to make them work.

Believing in Yourself

The biggest difference I’ve noticed between successful people and unsuccessful people isn’t intelligence or opportunity or resources. It’s the belief that they can make their goals happen. We all deal with Vulnerability, uncertainty and failure. Some of us trust that if we move forward anyway, then we will figure it out. As I sit here on New Year’s Day, I’m thankful that I’m one of these people. When I started my blog, I didn’t have anyone to learn from, but I trusted that I would figure it out anyway, I learned how to use WordPress and created a page, it not so easy when you don’t know what you are doing. But I knew I could create my own page and start my own blog page. I want to help the less confident people around me, to make them see it’s not hard to believe in yourself. We all go through rough times, but sometimes you express your beliefs in different ways. When I discovered an opportunity that sounded awesome but that I wasn’t qualified for, I trusted in myself and figured it out and went for it anyway. At the end I got the role and my confidence increased as well as my belief, whether I did or didn’t,  wouldn’t have stopped believing. I believe in myself. This confidence has made the difference for me again and again. I didn’t need an opportunity it resource. Just a simple belief in myself.

Do you believe that change is possible for you?

One of the most important beliefs of this community is that you can always become better. It’s important to know that human beings can improve, I believe that it is possible to raise the bar in your own life even if the world around you accepts the minimum. But not just to believe in yourself, also believe in the people around you and others, as by supporting each other you increase change for the better. I believe that if you want better health or more happiness or a more meaningful job that you can make those things happen. And because of this belief we are willing to test, experiment, and try new things even when we feel uncertain. If you don’t believe that it’s possible to make new things work, then it’s hard to make any progress. I don’t care how good the ideas are, nothing will work for you if you don’t believe in it. And more importantly, nothing will work if you don’t believe in yourself.

A little written paragraph below which I found online, and it is exactly how I feel,
