Believe in yourself, have faith, and you will be able to succeed   in life no matter where your   life turns down 
Self confidence is having faith in yourself and your ability to handle whatever situations are presented to you. You are blessed with freedom from doubt in yourself. When you need to perform a task or complete a project, you have no question in your mind that you will succeed. You are not afraid to look people in the eye or to express your thoughts.
Having confidence in yourself means you have belief in your ability to accomplish things that others would consider difficult or impossible. This type of faith in yourself inspires others around you and they often start believing that you can deliver whatever you’ve set out to do. At this point, you’ve succeeded in convincing not only yourself but other people that you will succeed.

If you have faith in yourself, you are able to laugh at yourself. You trust and believe that you’ll be able to deal with whatever life throws you, good or bad. If you know what you want and where you’re trying to go, you have self confidence. If you stay calm under pressure, because you know it’s only a matter of time until you figure out what to do, you have self confidence. Another good indicator of having adequate confidence is a sense of purpose and a willingness to take risks.

Psychological freedom, a firm sense of self-esteem, is the most powerful weapon against the long night of physical slavery.”
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”
“Whatever your life’s work is do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.”

How to Believe in Yourself
I recently became aware of how much faith I’ve lost in myself and my abilities. Trust me, I didn’t do this purposely but over time bad experiences and many failures got trapped in my mind. This doesn’t worry me though because I know that a simple “reprogramming” of my brain will get me back on track.
Now, I still have faith in myself but that faith isn’t as intense as it was 3 or 4 years ago. It was what Napoleon Hill would describe as a “burning desire” where nothing can stop you. I knew in my mind I can do whatever I want and everyone that put me down only spoke from their own negative experiences.
I believe this decline in faith set in from many failures (subconsciously). I started an online travel business which failed. Joined an insurance company that I lost interest in. Lost $3,000 of my dad’s money in less than 30 seconds day trading ($10,000 total in a week) and the list goes on.
From those failures and bad experiences, the first thing I learned is…
Keep Going
No matter what, keep your eyes on the prize and keep going. You see, I think the only thing that stops us from getting far in life is ourselves.
Instead of defeat keeping you down, look in the mirror and assure yourself that you WILL succeed. Pick yourself back up and keep going. The harder it is, the more accomplished you’ll feel.
“Success seems to be largely a matter of hanging on after others have let go.” -William Feather
See it in your mind first
It’s hard to get to where you want without being able to see it first. Visualize the end result as detailed as possible. Our minds think in pictures so feed it images.

Visualizing helps you believe in yourself because it lets your mind experience the end results as if you’ve already done it. Our minds think every image it sees is real, whether in real life or just in the imagination. So take advantage of that today!
Positive affirmations

When you lack faith, negative thoughts start coming in your mind. “I can’t”…”What’s the use”…”It’s hard”. All these thoughts need to be pushed aside. Be conscious and when bad thoughts arise, replace it with positive thoughts.
Only one thought can be in our mind at once, so it’s up to us to make sure it’s a positive thought.
Find support
Find people to work with that are experienced, knowledgeable, and support your dream. When you have a mentor like this, it’s easier to believe because there’s somebody working with you that’s already been there and done that. A positive environment creates positive results.
Lacking faith leaves your mind opens to ideas from negative people. We become more vulnerable to their negative put-downs and start actually believing them.

Tips for strengthening your faith

Sustaining your faith through all the distractions, trials and tribulations of day to day reality as you move towards your goal is one of the biggest challenges you are likely to meet. If you loose faith, you become discouraged, you loose your motivation to take action and you will loose momentum.
This happens to everyone from time to time, your resilience and endurance will be challenged. You need to develop the ability to restore your faith whenever it gets dented.
Your goal should be to develop an unshakeable, deep-down faith that you can succeed. This kind of faith springs from both your conscious and subconscious minds believing and trusting that you can do it. Such faith is hard to develop, but once you have it, you become unstoppable!

Work on your belief in yourself, in the universe or whatever else you think can provide your success. The most effective way to do this is to use affirmations to tell your subconscious mind what you want it to believe. When you do this often enough and with enough emotion, you can program it for unstoppable faith.
Faith is an important ingredient of success. Without it, you are unlikely to even try to make major changes in your life and you will find it difficult to keep going against all odds. Fortunately, faith is not something that you just have; you can develop faith through a number of techniques. Even better, as you undergo a program of personal growth,
Celebrate successes. Always aim for small victories that can be achieved on the way to your bigger goals. Regularly celebrating your achievements will condition your mind to believing that you can achieve and cause it to trust itself and the universe to deliver.

Remember that everyone has faith and its ally hope. Your faith may be weak through misuse and past bad experiences, but you have some faith. After all, even using energy to think or dream about a better life is an act of faith that it must be possible if only…
Be aware of the need for faith. We’ve talked about this already, but knowing that faith is an important part of success can help you to understand when it is being challenged and when you have to restore it or strengthen it.

Faith is one of the key ingredients of success. Faith lets you start on a project where the outcomes are uncertain; faith sustains you until you see the results of your labor. You may think that faith is something you just have, but it’s not. Faith is something you can acquire, find out how.
Faith has many meanings: it can mean a religious faith, it can mean trust in a universal god or gods it can mean trust in a person. Today we are going to talk about faith when it is applied to personal growth and achieving your life dreams. Faith in these circumstances means that you have belief and absolute trust in yourself and the universe to deliver your desires, even if you can’t see how it can be done.
Faith is one of the greatest powers you can posses. Without it, you cannot believe that you can succeed in anything that takes you out of your comfort zone. Without faith you will not be able to make significant changes in your life or achieve significant personal growth.
On the other hand, people who have had faith have achieved incredible things. All great achievements have begun with an act of faith – a belief that it can be done and a trust that a way can be found.

You Need to Believe in Yourself to Succeed in Life

What is it that the majority of people need if they are to succeed in this world? Think about it. What is holding you back? Is it lack of opportunity, is it because you lack education, or maybe it’s your parents fault? No! It’s none of those things. The only thing standing between you and your goals is the fact that you don’t believe in your self!

The majority of successful people have had only the basics in education. Most of them have had to struggle really hard to achieve their goals. But all successful people whether they come from a poor background or a rich background have one thing in common, and that is self believe.
Beliefs are created the instant that a person is born. Then, as a person progress through life, he/she will keep on creating new beliefs and change old ones. The reason People need to do this, is because it makes living in this world a lot easier to do, especially if you have the same kind of beliefs as your peers. Self belief can develop early on in childhood, or it can be cultivated later on in life. The thing is self belief is an essential ally in overcoming obstacles.

It doesn’t matter what obstacles your up against on your path towards your goals you can overcome them if you totally believe in yourself. Remember you can only really rely on yourself. You have to think that you are the best. Through modesty out of the window you don’t need it! Ignore any negative comments that people might say about you. Let these people wallow in their own negativity. Always think that you are going to be successful, and you will. If you think that you are going to fail you most probably will.
You are what you think! Once you have this kind of positive mind-set you’ll find that your self-esteem will grow and you’ll feel on top of the world! If you do have very low self-esteem the best way to start building it, is by taking daily risks. Each one building on the previous day’s risk. For instance on the first day you could say good morning to a stranger. The next day you could start a simple conversation with the cashier at the supermarket and so on.

Remember if the cashier ignores you don’t feel bad, or think that you’ve made a mistake because there are no such things as mistakes only learning experiences. Taking risks is a really valuable way of developing confidence and high self-esteem. Even if you just start out by taking one little risk each day, even this will improve your personality and belief in yourself immensely
Self esteem and believing in yourself is just one of many elements you need to learn in order to have the happiness and success that you want and deserve. People allow themselves to get all caught up in life and become off track with what they need to be focused on in order to get what they want in life. The first and most important thing is to develop a great sense of self confidence.
It is not hard to learn to have good self confidence. You just need to be aware that you need it to succeed in what ever you want to achieve for yourself. If you are someone who is lacking good self esteem then read this entire article and then goes to work applying the simple steps in your everyday life.

Here are 3 Key Steps to Believe in You to Succeed.

1. You must believe in yourself. You can believe you can or you can believe you can not do some thing. There is no right or wrong way to believe but what you need to realize is that which ever way you choose to believe will be what you program your mind and your sub conscious to believe. If you do not believe in yourself then you have already self defeated yourself before you even begin. You need to choose to believe in yourself.

2. Start taking action at working on tasks that you want or need to do that you felt you could not do. Then by working those through you will accomplish this task that you thought you could not do. This will help you learn and grow and give you the confidence that you need to try other tasks that you have wanted to accomplish. 3. Make it a point to read or listen to positive learning material on self esteem and personal development they will help you learn and grow in these areas and help strengthen your mind to believe in yourself and your abilities. Because most of what you are struggling to overcome is your own self. Once you master that you will well be on your way to achieving what ever you set your mind on. I hope these self esteem tips are helpful to you.

If you are not happy with your life then it is up to you to change it

Do you tell yourself, day in and day out, to think positive? No matter how hard you try to think positive, do you still not feel any better about your life? Do you feel like you have no idea what you want to do with your life, which makes you feel even worse about your future? This is called “a bad attitude” and the only way to fix it is with an attitude adjustment. Forget the positive thinking thing. It may work for some people, but not for everyone. And too much positive thinking only makes you fall harder when something does go wrong. It does not make sense to spend all day thinking positive and building yourself up, just so that when something happens, you can fall harder.
That’s the problem with always trying to think positive. If you don’t believe in yourself, it’s hard to think positive. Your friends and family can tell you all day how great you are or how smart you are, but it won’t matter until YOU believe how great you are and YOU believe how smart you are. Your belief in yourself is the golden key to success. Your belief is what gives you that “I can do” positive attitude. It also gives you that “drive for success.” Your belief in yourself is what allows you to work two jobs while you save to do whatever it is that you want to do. It allows you to put up with a bad situation at work until you can do what you want to do.
Everybody believes in themselves, the thing is, WHAT they believe.

I often find people asking how I can believe in myself. We know that it’s an important thing to do for our success – to have a happy life – but we rarely learn how to believe in ourselves. It takes more effort to believe when people have had bad experiences in life or they have low self-esteem.
Every person believes in themselves, but they could believe negative things about themselves. They believe they cannot be happy, they are not good enough, and they don’t deserve love and a lot of negative things. These are nothing else than limited beliefs. We learned these beliefs since we were born, from our parents, family, school teachers, and religious leaders – everybody around us. A belief is just a thought you keep on thinking. Limited beliefs go against our desires.
How can you replace your limited beliefs with empowering beliefs? The first step is to identify your beliefs and find the reason behind them. Is it good for you to believe that? It is a good idea to write a list of all the beliefs you have, and then wonder, are they limiting you to do or get what you want? If you wrote, “I believe people like me don’t deserve to be happy,” then ask yourself why you believe it. Do you feel mad, sad or worthless? Now, realize you can choose how you feel, you can choose what to think. In front of your limited belief, write a positive affirmation, like this: “I deserve to be happy and I’m the most important person in the world.” Repeat this affirmation every day. Repeat what you want to believe over and over until you begin to believe it. This is the method I use and have very good results. You can find more ways to purge your negative beliefs in books about Law of Attraction. I’m sure you can find the best one for you.

Loving yourself first is very important to start the process of believing in yourself. To love yourself means that you accept yourself completely. See yourself without any judgment or recrimination. Accept all the good qualities (of course you have them!) and work on the ones you want to improve. Nobody is perfect, but everybody has positive qualities, you just need to look inside you. Maybe it is easier to find the things you don’t like about you – write them down… “I’m fat, I’m shy, and I always do things in the wrong way”… When you complete your list, write a positive affirmation about each negative statement and three things to do to improve it. Here’s an example:
Negative thought: “I’m fat”
Positive affirmation:”I love my body and my weight is right for me”

Things to do to change my body:

-I’m walking 30 minutes three days a week
-I’m eating healthy food every day (It’s a good idea to ask a nutritionist for help)
-I’m changing my fat thoughts into healthy thoughts

Repeat your positive affirmations every day as many times you can, and DO what you need to do to improve everything you don’t like about yourself.
Mirror exercise. Stand in front of a mirror for about 5 to 10 minutes. The mirror shows you exactly what you see. You can choose to see you as a wonderful creation or as a body full of cellulite. Your self-image exists only in YOUR mind, not in the mind of others around you. It is the sum of your thoughts about you. Look at yourself only with love and appreciation. Write down three things you like about yourself every day for about 30 days. Remember you are a creator and you create things from inside to outside, so you can create the image of yourself that you want to see in the mirror.
Learn from your mistakes and be gentle with yourself. Don’t fail because you have never tried. Pamper yourself every time you fail and learn as much as you can from that. The faster you fail, the faster you will succeed. Every time you try one more time, you have more experience and there is less room to fail.

Believe only the good things people say about you. Believe only what you want to believe. What is good for you! Find people who believe in you and ask for support. Don’t waste your time listening to negative people. Be polite and walk away as soon as you can. Remember, the most important thing is what you believe about you, if you let other people influence your thoughts, think about it, is that good for you? If not, forget about it!
Write about your successes. It doesn’t matter how big or small they are. Try to write at least three things you have accomplished every day. It will help you figure out what you need to do next, and prove to yourself that you can do great things.
Believing in yourself takes a little effort, especially when you have spent your whole life thinking only negative things about yourself. Nobody changes in one day, it takes practice and time.

Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right!”

One of the great understandings of successful people is they know they are only limited by their own mind. In today’s society victim mentality is everywhere; it is always someone else’s fault. Words are an extremely powerful tool and manipulator of the mind. What is scary is how easy we each can manipulate our own mind. Listen carefully to everything you think out loud and say to other people.

Listen carefully to what other people are saying. When they talk about their problems that were responsible, is it them or somebody else? 99% of the time when you are complaining about somebody else being at fault, you need to look into the mirror. Whenever I have a difficult time working with someone my very first question is “Could I be the jerk?”

One of the great secrets that have been around since the beginning of time relates to what Henry Ford said. Everything in your life is because you made decisions that led to where you are. No one else held a gun to your head and made you take the job you have, the spouse you have or the kids you have. Your problems are exactly the same, they are all problems that resulted from decisions you made.

Most people’s financial problems stem from a very simple fact, the fact is they bought stuff they couldn’t afford trying to keep up with the Joneses. It doesn’t matter who the Joneses are, if you have financial problems stop keeping up with them. If you believe you will have lots of stuff and no money, you will. If you believe you will have lots of money and you are worried about the stuff, you will. It is only a matter of time before what you believe about your life becomes reality.

If you let other people tell you that you’re worthless, or you can’t do it often enough you might start believing it. Once you believe it then it becomes true, it is only a matter of time. If you are surrounded by people who don’t think you can do it, change the people that surround you. One of the greatest tricks to succeeding in my life has been to surround myself with people who’re successful. Because they are successful they believe others will be successful, most importantly they help you believe you will be successful. That support allows you to accomplish what you want to accomplish. You can’t live without it.

It might seem like it’s hard to change friends, but it really isn’t. Find people that believe in themselves so they will have the energy and the faith to believe in you. Those people will help you build your own energy and your own faith to believe in yourself and grow and succeed.
When a man has put a limit on what he will do, he has put a limit on what he can do.” This is really the last piece of the puzzle of success. Once you believe you can do it, you cannot limit yourself and your desire or effort to do it or you won’t. What amazes me more than anything else is how many people have the ability, skill and desire to accomplish a goal, then put limits on what they are willing to do to get there. Anytime you have a goal that has a limit, just forget the goal. Clearly you don’t want it enough if you’re willing to put limits on it.

Success Tip – Believe in Yourself, and Find Friends That Believe in You Too

Not believing in you is a Fatal Error That Must Be Avoided- The number one reason why the successful are successful is that they believe in themselves. They don’t sit around waiting for some else to motivate and believe in them. They believe in themselves. They believe that they can and will be successful! This is for real.

Take some time…yes right now and think about this. Your self esteem is under your control. Don’t hand it off to others. If you don’t believe in yourself why should anyone else. If you don’t believe that what you have someone else will buy it, how can they buy it. If you offer a product believe in the fact that you have a good product and expect it to be brought.

If you want to form a partnership with someone, believe that you will be an asset to that partnership. It all begins with you. This sounds simple enough but so many people fail at believing in themselves. I failed miserably at it. But no longer, that is why I am writing this article. To help someone – else. YOU!

Look, it is absolutely normal to have self doubt. Especially when nothing seems to be going right. Just press on and believe that YOU CAN DO THIS then you will have a chance to succeed. Lots of us have worried about is this really for me to do or maybe I should do something else.
STOP! Just DO IT! This phrase “just do it” did not originate with Nike; it is actually in the Bible. Lots of mornings, evenings and nights, I thought the EXACT same thing when I was first getting started. But as I learned and press forward and realized that if I wasn’t prepared to believe in myself then no one else would do either. So lets go on this amazing journey together and you start to believe in yourself okay? Because if you can’t then who the heck else will?! Besides Jesus

Do You Believe In Yourself?  – Do you believe in yourself are you taking risks or playing it safe? Only the people who are willing to take some kind of risks in life are the ones who succeed in life. Yes you can have a nice life if you do not take risks; however you will never live up to your true potential. You must realize that you possess an infinite source of potential; that you have not yet tapped into. There is absolutely no reason why you should not believe in yourself.

However if you are attempting to raise your belief in yourself and work on your self confidence then there are certain exercises you can do on a daily basis to begin raising your belief in yourself:

1) You can begin using daily affirmations: that will assist you to raise your self confidence. Wake up every morning and say at least 3-5 affirmations that help you feel great. The best thing to do is tape them on your bathroom mirror since you are going to be looking in the mirror while you are getting ready for the day. As you say the affirmations begin seeing yourself as the person that the affirmation describes. If one of your affirmations is “I am successful” begin feeling the feelings of success. It is not hard to feel successful; we have all felt the feelings of success at one point in our lives. Maybe you were on a softball team, and your team won the championship. That made you feel successful because your team was unbeaten and you had won a trophy. This is just an example you can tie any kind of success story you have had in your life and remember the feelings that you felt.
2) Set goals: Many people refuse to set goals because deep down they do not believe that they will be able to accomplish them. They fail before they even start by self sabotaging them. If you set small short term goals and begin taking action to reach them before long you will begin to believe in yourself and you will possess the confidence to begin setting long term goals.
3) Take action: This is the backbone and is needed to reach the goals that you set in step 2. Without action you may as well forget about the goals that you set for yourself. No matter if you feel like you are ready or not just begin taking action. You will never be truly ready for anything different in life; successful people understand this however they do not let that stops them. That is the reason they are successful.
4) Read positive material: This is extremely important to help you begin to believe in yourself. The more positive material you can put in your mind the more self confidence you will build.
You are a very talented person and you can be doing have anything you desire. However you must be willing to take a little bit of risks in your life. If you can get past your fear long enough to begin taking action; your fear will disappear.

God Wants You to Believe in Yourself- Now, I know this is going to raise some controversy, but I have to speak my mind here. I’m sorry if this offends anyone in any way, but let’s get real here.
Why on earth would God want someone to struggle? Seriously? This is a big issue that I have. My belief is that God is good. God wants us to have everything we’ve ever wanted. God is love. He doesn’t want anyone to struggle and I don’t believe it for a minute that he wishes any ill will upon anyone. And if you really think about it, that’s what it would be like. God doesn’t pick you out of a lineup and say, “John Doe’s life is destined to be a failure, because I wish it so!” What kind of a Loving God would do that?
I have even heard some people say it’s a test. A test for what? To see if you believe or love God?
That’s like saying I’m going to lock my kid in his room and deprive him of everything good to test how strongly he loves me and believes in me… Seriously? Does that make sense to you? If it does, I’m so sorry, because that’s just plain idiotic.
It would make more sense for me to give my son every opportunity to succeed, show him success, show him love, and show him that he can do anything he wants. That would be a better way of gaining his love and belief in me.
Now, it’s great to believe that God has a hand in our everyday lives, but honestly, and here is where the controversy is going to start, I think most people use God as an excuse. If their life is crap, they blame God. God must want them to suffer. If their life is good, they give credit to God, because he made this happen.

I am sorry, but YOU make it happen! YOU make the suffering. YOU make the success. It’s because YOU believed one way or another, be it in God or yourself, which caused whatever situation to happen. You see, don’t get me wrong here. I believe in God, but I believe God leaves it up to US to fail or succeed. It’s called free will, and if you’ve read the bible at all, you know that’s the basis of everything we are.
God gave us the ability to control our own lives. To believe what we want, when we want. The whole point is belief. If you believe something strongly enough, you’ll make it happen whether your belief is in God, a rock in your pocket, a family member or whatever. And if you believe that you will fail, you most definitely will.

STOP using God as an excuse for your failure! You’ve failed because you’ve let yourself fail. You’ve suffered because you’ve made yourself suffer.
If you want success, start doing things different from what you’ve been doing. Follow people who are getting the results you want. Learn all you can about success and how to attain it. And don’t give up until you get there.
You’ll never succeed unless you believe you can and stop using God as the reason you’re not.
To Your Success! Because Your Success Matters!
Believing in Yourself For Your Dreams to Come True- When I really want something that does not come to me no matter how hard I try, is it evidence that I should “get realistic” and give up on the dream? No. If anything it is a sign that I doubt my capacity to achieve my dreams. There is a big difference. If it is about not believing in yourself, you can do something about that. Reach out; get some unconditional love, for starters.
I cannot afford to look at the “evidence” and judge my future from it. What about all the things I cannot see, all the facts I have not taken into consideration? All the things which will contribute to my success which might actually have been set in motion already – and which I do not know about yet?

How many times do people talk about a lucky break? They did not know it was about to happen. Take J.K. Rowling before she was published. She was rejected – and exceptionally depressed about her life in fact. She was at a real low point.
All the evidence that she could see showed that success was not going to happen for her. I am quite sure the publishers who rejected her said “no market for this”. Part of her believed it, but not enough to write to the publishers and say “okay I give up, send my manuscript back to me”. No matter how low she was, I doubt she could stop herself hoping.
Nobody in the world knew success was coming her way. The moment that an employee of the publishing house picked up her manuscript off a pile was the moment that things had been set in motion irrevocably. But J.K. did not know. So even at that point, when the reality of her future success was in the making, “evidence” pointed to her never being successful.
I often do not allow myself to contemplate my possible success because I believe the “evidence” of my current lack of success. Evidence that is no evidence at all.

The time of wanting to give up could be the most important time of all. It could be when I sow the seeds of my conviction that my dream is meaningful and possible, when I refuse to give up, no matter what the “evidence”. Somebody from Hollywood once said “it does not matter how far-fetched your dreams might seem, if you do not give up, the competition drops away because most people give up. You are the one left standing.”
For your dreams to come true, do whatever you need to do to continue believing in yourself

The Power of Believing in You- Belief is a mechanism, which is inbuilt in our body. We are born with it and lead our lives, whether it is successful or not, based on our beliefs. The power of belief makes what you are.
If you are a pessimist and tend to put the blame on fate and the people around you and yourself in particular than you need to know what the power of believing in yourself can do to you.
Optimists never say no to an obstacle in front of them. They just turn those hurdles into stepping-stones to success. Try to associate yourself with these kinds of people. They will help to boost up your self-confidence. Keeping in touch with them will strengthen your resolve. If possible, sit with them, discuss yourself doubts, and learn about how they succeed in their lives.
You should always be focused on what you do. Do not let failures drag you down to despair. Try to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Reading books, watching videos, CDs, and movies of great people will give you an idea of what you are and what you can be.
Adopt a flexible attitude towards life. Observe, absorb, and amalgamate whatever you see into something new and encouraging. Take all the good things you see, discard all the trash and you will start believing in yourself.
Make your own rules. To believe in you, you should first have control over your mind. Barring all those negative thoughts and letting in the good ones will refresh your mind and give you more control over it.
All your life you would have tried to bet someone or other, thinking you was not as good as them. Now is the time to get rid of those doubts and start leading your life. Stop comparing yourself with others. You are better than they are; individuals are a hero to him. So aspire to do what you thought was not possible. 

Remember your first bike ride. You had a heck of a time getting the bike to your control. You would have bruised more than once in the process. However, that did not discourage you. Life is similar to that ride. You have all sorts of hurdles in front of you but like you grasped the bike and rode on; believing in yourself will help you ride the path no matter what may come.

Believe In Yourself And You Will Succeed- Whatever you want to succeed in make no doubt about it you will succeed if you believe in yourself. It is that simple.
If you do not believe in yourself you will fail. You will fall at the first hurdle.
Winning is not about having the best product or the most inventive ideas. Sure, these are important, but it’s not everything. Success is about creating the right mindset!
This is extremely important. Without it, you will have a difficult time finding success.

You can have the best tools and strategies at your disposal, but if you don’t believe in yourself, those tools and strategies will not do you much good.
If you want to succeed, believe in yourself, pull out all the stops and use all that you have. Your mind is the greatest asset you possess.
You have to believe that you CAN get whatever results you’re after, and then you will succeed. If your goal is to have a successful online business, you have to convince yourself that you can do it.
The easiest way to do it is to spend time looking at the successful people around you. Read about them. Watch videos about them. Learn from them. Believe in their success. Listen to others talk about them. Do whatever you have to do to FOCUS on success, and spend time around like-minded people.
Something very interesting happens when you shift your focus in this way. There is a universal law that tends to attract you to whatever it is you most focus on. Whatever you focus on most gets drawn to you.
For example, when you start taking drama lessons, you will suddenly find that there are so many others around you who are also into drama. They are drawn to you. You suddenly become aware of like-minded people simply by focusing in a certain direction.
So, start looking for proof around you. Read stories and case studies about others who are already doing what you want to do. Let their stories motivate you and make a believer out of you.

The reality is that whatever it is that you want in your life, you can have it, IF you first believe that you can have it.
If others can do it, you can do it. It’s that simple! Believe in yourself and you will succeed
Believe in yourself- Life is filled with different colors and it has in store for us various problems from time to time. At times the barriers are insignificant, but sometimes they prevent us from continuing on the path we have chosen. If we dwell on the challenging obstacles we may encounter in our life, we start believing that they are impossible to surmount.
When we reach this point we should take some time, and start asking ourselves some basic questions, such as: “What is my system of beliefs”? The people we are surrounded by tell us to believe in ourselves, believe in our abilities, and even believe that no matter what the obstacle may be, we can find the strength to overcome. We just need to believe and we will find a way.
But, you can ask yourself yet again “What is belief and how does it help me succeed, or how does it bring its contribution to my personal development?” A strong and unwavering belief in your abilities can give you the necessary strength and the right attitude to help you find the answers to all your problems.
Really believing that you will eventually find a solution to any problem you may encounter, will endow you with the excitement to work towards this set destination.

On the other hand, by doubting that we have the ability to fight and come to a happy end, then, the war has been lost. Our belief is a very powerful medicine and it does work in mysterious, yet wonderful ways for us. Let’s just see how exactly it works:

Believe that eventually you can find out the right solutions;
Believe that you can finally overcome all problems;
Believe that in the end you will emerge successfully;
Believe that the path you have chosen for yourself will make you a winner;
Believe that you deserve to reach and enjoy success;
Believe that you can find in yourself the necessary strength to cope with all the odds;
Believe. All you can do is believed. There is no greater magic that works in such a way, other than by believing.

I am sure that many of you have been involved in at least a small business, and not few times found yourself wondering “What am I doing wrong?” But, once you found the necessary excitement, the opportunity was presented to you. That’s because you BELIEVED that you have it in yourself to succeed.
If you just try to think back to the beginning, about how powerful your belief in yourself was, about the kind of attitude you had and if it match your belief system, and then at the time when you were successful, I bet that when you were savoring your success, your belief was unshakeable!
Your attitude most likely told you: “I can do anything!”No matter what business you are in and no matter what you want to do in life to succeed, if you understand that Attitude and Belief play a major role in your success, and then you are already poised to reach the top
How to Start Believing in yourself- Do you need to start believing in yourself? See how important it is to do so for the sake of your future life and success, and how you can start making the changes to gain this self belief.
Self belief is the key to the riches of the kingdom. With it you can do things you never thought possible before, and giving up on a task will not be an option for you any longer, because you will know in your heart of hearts that eventually you are going to succeed in whatever it is you have put your mind to.

Let us look at a sport such as golf to see how important believing in you is. You could say that talent becomes secondary to believing in yourself when the chips are down and you are getting to the final holes of a championship. The ones that win are the ones that have that inner core that tells them that they can win and will win if they dig in and fight.
And more often than not it is these golfers that triumph. All golfers are extremely talented at the top echelons of golf, or indeed any sport for that matter, so the difference between winning and losing usually comes down to who wants to win it badly enough and who has the belief to keep their nerve and shine when it really matters.
You need to look yourself in the mirror when you get up in the morning and tell yourself that you are feeling good today and you are going to succeed in all you set out to do during the course of the day.
Set yourself sensible goals that are achievable each day, and use all the positive energy you have to focus on reaching these targets.

Keep away from people who convey negative energies towards you, try to hang out with people who make you feel good and have a positive effect on you. Spend a little time each day re-affirming your targets to yourself and telling yourself you have the abilities to do whatever you wish.

Different Reasons Why If You Believe in Yourself, Anything Is Possible-

There are different reasons why if you believe in yourself, anything is possible. The idea that you have no ability is a myth. Everyone was given the ability to do what they desire by their creator. The reason that failure occurs is often because they do not believe in themselves. Everyone has abilities. They simply have not found them yet.
Taking an aptitude test can help you discover your talent.
Believing that you have little ability is probably the result of programming you received as a child. If you were constantly told no, it affected the way you feel about yourself. It takes 10 positive comments to make up for one negative one. This is why many of us grow up to think we have no ability. Feeling that you have no talent does not mean that it is so.
Ask yourself where this idea of no ability came from. Do you have childhood memories of being told that? You have ability. You just do not know it. You have to re-program your subconscious. When you convince it that you believe in yourself, anything can happen. When you build up your confidence, it will change your whole outlook on your life.
Everyone has things that they enjoy doing. They usually do them well. When you develop your passions, anything can happen. Einstein flunked math. They told Edison’s parents to take him out of school because he couldn’t learn anything. Michael Jordan was taken off his high school team. When they started believing in themselves, they changed their image.
You have to have faith before you succeed. Those who believe in God do not believe in their ability but his ability. Start believing that he gave you ability. Then you can believe in yourself. You have ability. It may be buried deep inside you. Examine your likes, and passions. You have to examine the different things that turn you on.
Everyone has something they excel at. Anything can happen when you find it. Nothing can stop people who believe in themselves. There is a long list of people whom others thought were useless, but they did tremendous things against great obstacles. When your passion sets you on fire, you will do great things. The difference between mediocre and great is often a confident enthusiastic attitude.
Feeling useless is one of the reasons people having little self confidence. To build up your self esteem, start acting the part. Put your shoulders back. Walk briskly with a spring in your step. Speak with an authoritative voice. Act like you are confident of yourself and bubbling over with enthusiasm. When people believe in themselves, give them the ball and get out of the way!
These reasons why if you believe in yourself, anything is possible may be different from your case. The main thing is not to be taken in with this feeling of being useless.
Prove to yourself that you can do whatever you set your mind to. Disbelieve this negative belief and make room in your thinking for anticipating a successful life with abundant rewards.
Faith is involved in everything you do. You have to have faith that the food you buy is safe to eat. You have to have faith in your driving ability to get behind the wheel. You have to have faith in the pilot to get on an airplane. Your creator gave you all the talent you need. The book, “Climbing the Heavenly Stairs,” will explain the power of believing in your own ability.

Making Dreams Come true and believing in Yourself- When we long for something but no matter how hard we try we cannot make it happen, is that a sign that we should get realistic and give up on our dream? I do not believe it. If anything, it is a sign that we doubt ourselves and that we think the future will be the same as the past.
When things do not work out for us it is easy to see that as evidence that we are too big for our boots, or we have our head in the clouds. It is too easy to give in and give up. But the hard evidence actually only tells us what we can see, which is what has happened so far. It does not tell us anything at all about the future, about what can and will happen.
What about all the things that I cannot see, all the facts I have not taken into consideration because I do not know about them? What about all the events that are happening outside of my experience that are drawing me towards my eventual success, events that have already started happening, perhaps? Take J.K. Rowling’s, before she was published. Her first Harry Potter book was rejected plenty of times, and she was very depressed about her life. At that point she did not know that an employee in a publishing house had picked up her manuscript from a pile somewhere, and was reading it for the heck of it.
J.K. could not know that that an employee would go to her editor in a day or two and say I think this is quite a good book, or that the editor would pay attention. Or that she would become world famous and massively wealthy, that her books would become a global success and be made into films that would secure the careers of a group of children. All she knew was what she had experienced to date, that publishers thought her book would not sell. She could have believed the publishers who had told her book would not sell. She could have given up, and said everything that has happened so far has told me what the future will be. She could have withdrawn her manuscripts from all the publishers, walked away from her dreams. But she did not.
When it looks as though our dreams cannot possibly come true, that is when we have to remember that what has happened so far does not say anything about what is going to happen. We do not have to believe the people who tell us we cannot succeed. They cannot look into the future. They cannot even see everything that is happening in the present! All the so-called expert publishers who rejected J.K. are looking like fools now!
We never have to give up. We do have to keep on believing in ourselves and our dreams, no matter what anybody says, no matter what is happening around us.

Believe in Yourself & Believe Your Dreams Are Possible-

People everywhere have incredible ideas, reachable goals, and untapped potential – but they are far more scared of actually accomplishing their dreams than they are of failing to achieve them. The reason is because being average or just good is certainly easier than the work required becoming great or successful in anything. And yet, usually it is not the work and effort that most frightens us, it is the lack of belief in ourselves and that our dreams are possible that dictates our decisions of not taking action, never taking risks, and becoming content with mediocrity. The result, our potential is thus never realized because we don’t believe we possess, or can develop, the necessary knowledge and abilities in order to achieve such potential, accomplishments, and success.

In order to achieve success – in anything in life – we must first desire success. However, to desire is relatively simple given the fact that desiring is merely wishing, hoping, or longing. Granted, a stronger desire produces increased motivation, but desire itself is not a mentality or action that requires effort. Believing is the next attribute necessary to possess in order to achieve success; however, to believe in oneself or that a dream is possible is extremely difficult, requires a change in mentality, and certainly must be coupled with action to be effective and produce results. But, in order to succeed, we must first believe that we can – believe in ourselves and believe that our dreams are possible.
The great teacher of the principles of success, Napoleon Hill, perfectly explained the power of belief when he penned: “you can be anything you want to be, if only you believe with sufficient conviction and act in accordance with your faith; for whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Thus, success will be realized when we first truly believe that all the necessary attributes, knowledge, or abilities to accomplish anything already lie within us, or that they can be obtained and developed; and then, we must believe that putting forth the required effort and persisting in action will produce the very results we initially only believe are possible.
It is important to note however, that belief precedes the action. Belief gives meaning and purpose to the action and is the initiator and drive for continual action. If this was not so, actions become merely futile motions that rarely produce results because the absent belief can not inspire the action, or give encouragement during failures, or even give reason for persistence.
And therein perhaps is the greatest secret of those who become successful – they continue to believe in themselves and their dreams despite the occasional mistakes, challenges, and failures that they always encounter along the journey towards success. Initial belief is not sufficient – continual belief is essential! Thus, the great mystery and challenge in pursuing a goal with unyielding belief is not initially knowing how many steps need to be taken, attempts tried, money lost, time spent, or even failures experienced.. However, the great reward and achievement only come to fruition if belief is combined with action continually until the destination’s end has been reached.

Believe In Yourself and Become a Winner-

“Legally Blonde” is one of my favorite movies. Not just for the bright, chirpy and eminently watchable Reese Witherspoon, but also because I loved the message it sent to women like me.
If you didn’t see the movie, all you need to know is that it’s about a smart, fashion-conscious blonde who’s told time and again, by her family and friends, that it’s impossible for someone like her to go to Harvard law school. That she’s just not smart enough and doesn’t have what it takes.
In the movie, the character played by Witherspoon not only goes to Harvard law, but also through sheer determination and intuition, graduates at the top of her class. It’s just the sort of movie people love. Because it makes us believe that we too are capable of achieving anything we want to.
It reminds us how we often let ourselves, and others, underestimate our own potential. And how we undermine our own sense of self, because of what we look like or where we came from. But why just let it remain a movie, when it can be the story of your life…
Have you ever asked yourself what it is that keeps you from reaching your full potential? From doing what you are inherently capable of? For many of us, it’s a lack of belief in ourselves. A lack of confidence in our own ability to succeed. And because we believe we will fail, we usually do.
But there are people who have succeeded beyond all expectation – no matter what they look like, or where they come from. One of my favorite female role models is another Hollywood celebrity, Barbra Streisand.
Indeed, one of my favorite films of all time is her movie, “Yet,” about a courageous, intelligent woman trying to fulfill her capabilities, in the face of overwhelming odds. “Yenta” was also the movie in which Streisand became the first woman ever to produce, direct, write and star in a major motion picture.
Streisand carved her own path, and broke the mould. She showed how a woman with unconventional looks can make it in a field where beauty is more important than brains.
So, if you believe that you are less than someone, because of your lack of education, looks, talent, background or ability, take courage from her achievements. They are an inspiration not only for women, but for everyone.
Because all it take is a belief. The belief that you can do what it takes. Don’t wait for someone else to give you an opportunity to prove yourself. Stop depending on others for handouts. Don’t wait for the right opportunity to fall in your lap. Because it never will.
Create your own opportunities and forge your own future. Your belief in yourself, coupled with the courage to see it through, is what will carry you from a life of mediocrity and under-achievement; into a world where you can be the winner you aspire to be
In conclusion I chose to write about my quote because believing in yourself and having faith plays a very important role in your every day life, without any of that you will never be able to succeed or accomplish any of your dreams, goals, life strategies, relationships, friendships.
