Keep Believing In Yourself it’s easy to say, but it’s hard to do. If you want to know how to keep believing in yourself, read this post.
If you are struggling with believing in yourself, you are not alone. You might not know it but so many people are struggling with believing in themselves. I think it might be even way above half of all people on earth. Most of them won’t say it out loud and will pretend that they are super confident, brave and they believe in themselves so much that they could do anything. But if we could look inside them, we will see a lot of doubts and fears.
In this post, I want to share with you some thoughts about beliefs, self-worth and how to finally start believing in yourself.
We all know that believing in ourselves can bring us a lot of good thins and for sure can change our lives. But what are the results of not believing in ourselves?
Try to imagine a person who always tries to stay in the shadow so people couldn’t see that person. It doesn’t matter if it’s a party, parents meeting in school or someone’s wedding, this person always tries to stay out of the group. A person who has negative opinion our her or himself acts like that. That kind of person prefers to stay outside to feel safe.
Hiding in the shadow has its rewards. If you hide in the shadow, you feel safe because no one will ask your opinion. No one will start a “difficult” conversation with you. This is a pretty safe place for someone who has problems with self-worth. But at the same time, this kind of person is missing amazing and sometimes life changing situations.
For example, if you are a person who prefers to stay in the shadow but you’ve got an invitation for a wedding. First of all, you might not even go so you will miss all the fun. Secondly, if somehow you decide to go to the wedding, but you will be hiding behind a plant’s leafs as sitting by the table all the time, you might miss your true love. Always at weddings, there are people who you don’t know so chances to find a true love are real. But if you hide in the shadows because you don’t believe in yourself etc. than a person who could be your wife or husband will be taken by someone else ;) Well this is just an example to help you imagine what you are missing by staying out of the group ;)
Same this is with business. You might go to some meeting, but because you don’t believe in yourself you won’t be able to share your thoughts and ideas. Maybe your ideas are brilliant and can make you a millionaire! but because you have a lot of doubt in yourself you are locking that million dollars ideas inside you.
I can come up with many other situations and examples of missing the opportunities when you keep yourself low, but I hope you could get what I am talking about.
I am curious if you had some kind of bad experiences in the past that could damage your self-worth. Of course, you did. There is not even 1 person on earth that was born and from that point had all happy and no stress life. Some struggles are big some are small, but everyone had some problems and bad experiences in the past.
Your past has a really big impact on your self-worth. You might not even realize that yet, but a single event in your past could damage your self-worth and that single event maybe is stopping you from believing in yourself.
It could be a small thing like a classmate’s rude comment (my case) or something bigger like causing someone’s death by your mistake. You might think that the second reason can’t be even compared to the first one, but everybody has a different personality and we are all emotional creatures. So for someone rude comment could be nothing, but someone else could suicide because of someone’s rude comment.
You are worthy! I believe that all people are worthy. Everybody are important and everybody has something that can make this world more beautiful place. You, my friend, are reading this blog not because you clicked on the link by mistake. You came here because you want to know how to keep believing in yourself and you know that you can do amazing things and you know that there are people who will love what you do. Now you just need someone to reactivate that spark in you. But it’s not necessary to reactivate the spark because it’s always been active.
You, my friend, need to realize that the fire inside you is burning. No matter how you feel down or how you feel less worthy the fire is burning. You are just not letting it burn outside as well.
Let me guess. You have amazing ideas, amazing plans and you want to do something mindblowing with your life or someone’s life. But you don’t believe in yourself, you have a lot of doubts and you feel that the stress will kill you. I experienced that. I know how it feels, with all that there was a lot of emotions like anger, depression and I felt like I am loosing the control. It’s all because I kept the fire inside and I never let anyone to see it.
I might or might not know you personally, but I know you are up to something. If you want that you wouldn’t read this post. I know you are looking for help because you want to finally express yourself. In fact, we are all like that. We all stop you. Not the circumstances or negative friends. We stop our potential and without realizing it we are killing ourselves from the inside.
It’s painful when you realize that no one believes in you. You might come to the point that you are super excited about the new project, new business idea etc. and your fire starts to burn outside. Then your friends throw an ice water on you. by saying that you are a dump or by saying that it will never work because…
This is the point which most of the people don’t get. Most of the people want everyone to believe in them so they could start believing in themselves but it doesn’t work this way. You need to believe in yourself and your ideas before anyone else believes. “If you don’t believe in yourself, who will?” I don’t remember who said this but this is so true. The top leaders, influencers, CEOs, actors, directors and everyone else who succeed at first believed in themselves. Why? Because everyone else was rejecting them. They kept pushing, they kept moving forward to find a person who will believe in them and to make their dream come true.
If all of your friends don’t believe in you then consider me as your new friend who supports you totally. But you shouldn’t put any focus on this. You and what you are believing in is the most important. Do not care if people around you say crap about you or your ideas. If you keep believing in yourself you will succeed.
