Belief in yourself gives you that drive in your life that motivates you to go after what you want. So many people have a long list of goals that they at one time hoped to achieve but never went after because they simply did not believe in themselves.
And then there are those people and situations that discourages you from believing in yourself. You know those people who tell you that you can't do it... you're not good enough... you don't deserve it. I know the saying is "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me". While it sounds good, that's not always the truth. Truth is, words can be damaging if you let them. People constantly putting you down can cause disbelief within yourself. Or those situations where nothing goes right or you keep failing at everything you try, that can be discouraging and have you feeling like you just can't do it.
Believing in yourself means you have to have confidence in yourself, so when the naysayers come with their negative comments or the situations fall through, you are still able to keep going because you believe in yourself. Everyday you wake up look at yourself in the mirror and say "I believe in you" because each new day is another opportunity to make things happen because you believe in yourself.
Don't get discouraged! Your belief in yourself can take you a long way. When times are hard keep going. When people say you can't do it, keep going. Never give up! And even if you fail, still keep going. I always say "A loss is a win if you use it right" You rise from your failures by taking those lessons and turning it into growth. Having belief in yourself will take you far in life.
Life Lesson: All it takes is belief in yourself and you can conquer the world!
