I am sure that 99% of us have heard the sentence “Believe in yourself” on so many different occasions and times.
A lot of people assume this sentence overrated and therefore ignore and fail to see how powerful those three words are. Believing in oneself works in three different dimensions.
Self Actualization, Faith in oneself and Self Love. These three forces are the ultimate and formidable foundation to achieving greater heights.
Self Actualization according to Abraham Maslow is “The desire for self-fulfillment, namely the tendency for him (the individual) to become actualized in what he is potentially capable of.” This only occurs when we dig deeper into our core as individuals to maximize our potential and capabilities and doing our very best in whatever we aim to achieve. One needs to strongly believe in him/her in order to be fully self actualized.
Believing in yourself has more to do with what you think of yourself and less of what others think of you. You may succeed if no one believes in you; you will never succeed if you fail to believe in yourself. Your words are a reflection of what you believe about yourself, so let your words be of nothing but self worth and self love.
Faith works alongside believing in you. As individuals, we live by faith or we aren’t living at all. Faith in ourselves is what pushes us to pursue what doubt tell us we can’t. Our faith only works when we believe in it and set a goal to push for it. Place a demand on your faith and do not abandon it simply because others don’t believe in it because the most important conviction in our lives cannot be reached on the words of others. To live by faith is not by sight but by conviction within.
Our life is like an echo, it bounces back our actions and beliefs. Life gives back exactly what we feed it. Believe in yourself so much that there will be no room for doubt. Stop doubt from building obstacles in your imagination, clear your thoughts of all forms of negativity, believe in your dreams, have faith that you can and you will. Let not your mind wander far into the city of doubt or you will start building alibis instead of building dreams.
Believing in one’s self isn’t just an idea one posses, it is an idea that posses a person. Let your faith and believes take hold in all your objectives, self believing helps you see what others can’t see in you.
Self love is the glue that seals and binds your believes. Self love breeds stronger convictions, enthusiasm and the most powerful of them all, Passion. Learn to love yourself no matter how bad others think of you and no matter how ugly your past or present may look. Self love breed enthusiasm and enthusiasm they say is an inside job. To go farther, you must be enthusiastic in all your endeavors.

You must create your very own plan, your own strategy, your own system and believe in yourself to achieve it or be enslaved in the ideas and strategies of others. Believe in your own convictions and let know one tell you what you want. Be your own person and believe in your life’s plan.
