This inspiring collection of quotes about believing in yourself helps to remind us of the enormous power of our thoughts and their impact on our success in life.
Why is believing in yourself important?
Believing in yourself is so important because it gives us the self-confidence that we need to achieve our goals. Which at first thought, is overly simplistic.
So, first we need to backtrack a little and consider the concept that:
- our thoughts and beliefs create…
- our feelings, which then
- inspire our actions, that
- lead to the results we produce.
If we think we can do something, we feel confident, motivated and inspired to take the required actions that will lead to the results that we want. Job done right?
So getting back to believing in ourselves….
When you believe in yourself, you feel more confident and capable of reaching your goals. This increased confidence can help you take on new challenges and overcome any obstacles that may stand in your way. Additionally, believing in yourself can help boost your self-esteem and make you happier and more content with your life.
How can I believe in myself more?
Building self-confidence can be a difficult task if you’re not used to it, but there are a few things you can do to help improve your confidence, mainly with simple mindset shifts.
Firstly, question why you think the way you do. Ask, Why do I believe this?, What evidence (if any) do I have that I can’t do this? Why not me?
Then, look for evidence of why you could start to believe in yourself. Find examples of others who have accomplished what you want, write a list of the awesome things you’ve accomplished in the past and what obstacles you’ve overcome before.
Next, you need to make a start. Take even the smallest action towards believing you can do ‘x, y or z’. Start setting tiny goals towards it, and by keeping your promise to yourself and achieving these tiny goals, you will gain confidence and belief that, why, yes I think I can do this.….
