Success Starts with Believing in Yourself
You know that feeling you get when someone gives you a compliment? Or the feeling you got with your first client? Those are all good, warm, fuzzy feelings right?
Well, think about if you were able to bring up those feeing in yourself for yourself. Have you ever noticed how we can be our own worst enemy? I see it all the time; how we talk ourselves out of situations that are beneficial to us and we talk ourselves in to things that are not good for us instead. We don’t even get to start some projects because we self-sabotage ourselves.
The kicker is, we know if our best friends were to speak to themselves in usch negative ways, we would never allow it. We would stop them and point out all their wonderful attributes and then some.
Why is it then we can’t or don’t do this for ourselves. Well, I’m bringing you ways to start this practive yourself:
What is the fight or flight syndrome? When our brain interprets a situation and tells us that we are in danger and we have two choices, either to stand and fight or to run from danger – that is known as the fight or flight syndrome.
What does this have to do with our weaknesses? Well, when we take a look at weaknesses, we may see the fear underlying in many of them. On many occasions, that fear is what makes us run and opt for the flight syndrome. However, there are ways we can overcome fear and even turn our weaknesses into our biggest strengths.
We’ve all heard about self affirmations (and probably secretly thoguth they were stupid). So, if the thought of telling yourself how much you love yourself sounds a bit much, just hold on a second.
How about doing something different? How about talking to yourself like you would speak with an old friend. When your friends are depressed, what’s the first thing you do? You lift them up, right? Try doing this to yourself when you feel down.
Start by telling yourself out loud how much you have accomplished. By listing your accomplishments, you’ll see that they far outweigh your failures.
One of the best things to do to tap into your success is to keep photos of your accomplishments around you. For example, you can keep an email of your first client or of a most recent one. This will remind you that if you’ve done it once, you’ll be able to do it again. Whenever you’re in a downward spiral, make sure you look at that email and remember the success in yourself.
If you have children, of course, post pictures of them. This is why you do what you do. If you got a certification in something that you’ve been working on for awhile, post that up there too.
The more you post to acknowledge your greatness, the more you will begin to feel it.
So while you are watching this video, let the message permeate in your heart, mind, and body. Just know to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!
