Day #217: How You Can Believe In Yourself More Today

To believe and know you are capable are the qualities that will help you aspire further than you can know. Likewise, self belief is just as important quality of a happy and successful person.

You can be best looking person, you can be the smartest kid on the block, you could be the fastest athlete out there or even a clever entrepreneur. But without self belief these qualities and attributes may never show at their full extent.

Below are some ways to help you believe in yourself: 

Volunteer work

In any society there are always people in need and helping someone else will always improve your self-esteem and self-respect which will further lead to you realising you ain’t that bad. 

Make a list of your achievements

Do you bang your head against a brick wall being ready to give up in despair? Try to make a list of your personal winnings. Don’t be all tall poppy syndrome either. Even if it is a small win, be proud of it. Making such a list will be a great psychological motivation that will help you believe in yourself.

Surround yourself with people who believe in you

Negative people, wont bring a positive effect on your life. You should try to find friends with similar interests and values who will support you and essentially make you a better you.

Accept yourself

To believe in yourself, you first need to accept you for who you are. How can you believe in something you don’t fully accept? Accept your good qualities, acknowledge your flaws and maybe work on them. To believe in yourself, you have no other choice but to love yourself with all of your good and bad sides.

Change your perspective

Stop focusing on negative things in your life. Concentrate on everything that is good and positive around you and be grateful for that.  Like yesterdays post – when life gives you lemons, you need to make a decision. (See blog post)

Have your own goals

Set some goals. Some short-term ones, and some long terms ones. Set them and complete them. The more you complete, the more confidence will grow on you and of course self belief will become a bigger part of your life.

Stop comparing yourself to other people

Your appearance, achievements, salary and other things should not be compared to other people’s ones. Everyone has his or her own way, goals and results. Don’t waste your time, emotions and energy to compete with everyone around. Do what you do and be the best version of yourself. Believing in yourself is what every person needs.

Follow your dreams, believe in yourself and don’t give up. – Rachel Corrie
