Are you frustrated and feeling down because people don’t believe in you?
The root of this problem probably starts within you!
A lot of people quit on their dreams and goals because they get negative opinions from others. Some people care only a little bit about others opinion but for some people, it’s one of the most important things. No matter what level of success we achieve, as humans we love attention and we feel better when we get a support from others. Unfortunately, an only small group of people get real support and most of us have to struggle with friends and family who don’t believe in us.
If you are reading this post I am sure you are wondering why people don’t believe in you. You start a business or you are trying to do something cool with your life and then so many people tell you that you can’t make it. Suddenly uncle Joe calls and tells you to not embarrass the family. I know it happens because it happened to be when I started my entrepreneurial journey.
There could be many reasons that cause people not to believing in you. Maybe you failed with your previous business or you were a person who was always quitting before achieving something. Of course, people who don’t believe in you might have some own personal issues and they are just mean, but in most cases, everything starts with you.
When I started the journey I didn’t really believe in myself. I was trying things out and I didn’t have any plan, just a hope. But hope is not enough to make things work. I was constantly changing my mind, I was trying new things even I didn’t finish the previous tasks. This was not helping me at all and I really didn’t believe that I can make things happen.
My friends and family were telling me to quit trying. They constantly were telling me that I was losing only time and money and that I will never be able to be successful. I was depressed for a while and had so much stress that my physical health condition got worse. Then I started to think why all those people say that I can’t make it happen. Why they have to pull me down. I realized that it wasn’t about them. It was all about me.
If I don’t believe in myself then who will? People who don’t believe in themselves are looking for someone who will tell them “It’s ok! You can make it!” but this is just a trap. In most cases people say “You can make it” but they feel differently and we can feel that vibe.
You need to believe in yourself. I don’t care how crazy your idea is. If you don’t believe in yourself then don’t expect people to believe in you. Other’s support is important but if you don’t believe in yourself than what do you expect others to tell you? People can feel your vibe. When people see that you don’t think that you can make it, then how come they can say “Yes you can!“? It’s like telling someone that he or she loves peanuts when they truly hate it. It just won’t work. So if you are struggling with people who don’t believe in you, ask yourself if you do truly believe and trust yourself.
You can’t make things work if you don’t think that it will work. You can’t make things work when you don’t believe in yourself. I am curious why you don’t believe in yourself. Maybe when you were a child constantly someone was saying negative things about you. It’s hard to know the real root of not believing in yourself because everybody is different and we all have different experiences.
What I know is that no matter your previous experience you can start believing in yourself. You are reading this blog which means you have the desire to succeed. You didn’t quit on your dreams, right? Your past experiences are the lessons which helped you become who you are today. So there is no need to keep focusing on everything bad what happened to you. All the failure, doubts, and fears happened to teach you something.
I can bet that 5 years ago you didn’t know that you will be in the place where you are right now. This is a proof that you have no idea what can happen in the future. Which means you have unlimited possibilities and you can do amazing things with your business and life. No matter your age, sex or previous experience.
First of all, you need to believe in yourself if you want people around you to believe in you. Secondly don’t focus too much on people’s negative opinion because at the end it’s your life and only you are able to change it. People’s opinion or people’s beliefs should not bother you. Trust yourself, belief in yourself and you will be able to achieve amazing things. It’s hard to believe it, but if you are least try to believe in yourself you will me amazed how great you are. Don’t allow people to shake your core. Always having faith in yourself!
