Wouldn't it be great to wake up in the morning and know that whatever comes your way, you can handle it? That you have complete faith in yourself to do the things you need and want to do. When you believe in yourself, things like a stressful workday or going for that big promotion seem so much easier to reach for. In this post you will find a few tips to help you start on your journey of believing in yourself.
Love Thy Self
How are you supposed to believe in yourself if you don't love yourself? Self-Love is the foundation of which you must first build on.
When you love yourself, you see yourself as you are. You see that you have strengths and weaknesses. You appreciate all the things in life that make you stand out and be different. And when you love yourself, you know that you have the power to change the things you would like to improve and the ability to accept the things that you cannot change. To begin on your journey of loving yourself, it's time to get to know yourself. What do you like or dislike? What do you value or believe in? Start by building your self-awareness. As you grow to know yourself, you will begin to love and appreciate yourself.
Learn A New Skill
Remember that feeling when you just learned something new? When you first start off and it seems hard and then little by little you start to understand the skill. And then you become good at it. It's such an embowering feeling.
When you learn a new skill, it releases dopamine in the brain, and you begin to make new connections that help you develop your decision-making skills. And let's be honest it just feels so good. You feel proud of yourself which leads to you starting to believe that you can do more and more every day.
Where's Your Focus?
If you are feeling unhappy or discouraged, you may need to take a look at what you are focusing on.
For example, when you wake up in the morning and you turn on social media right away, your focus may lead to comparing yourself to others. Which leads you to feel less than or that you are not doing enough. Instead, check in with yourself each and every day and make time to focus on the good in your life. Reflect on the things in your life that made you feel stronger. Ask yourself powerful questions such as " What have I overcome in my life?" or "What has made me stronger?" By bringing light to the things that you have overcome, you are changing your mindset from one of weakness to one of strength and accomplishment.
