Do you want to become a real achiever and to live a happy and fulfilling life? All these goals are impossible to attain if you don’t have faith in yourself. Can you name at least one famous person who doesn’t believe in themselves? Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Martin Luther King, and Steve Jobs all did well because they had great confidence and took the right action. In fact, this article is not about their successes, but rather about their ability to get up numerous times after the fall.
Understand that their success didn’t happen overnight. It was the result of their hard dedicated work, which included multiple setbacks. But they kept going on and reached the point where they are now, because all of them had faith in themselves and a very important trait, which is perseverance.
These two things, faith and perseverance, are important for everyone, especially for ambitious people, who want to transform the world in incredible ways. Setbacks happen to all of us, that’s how the life works. You reaction is what matters the most. But if you have faith in yourself, no obstacle can stop you. Here are two habits that will destroy all self-imposed limitations and help you to have faith in yourself.
Count Your Wins
It is natural for many people to focus on the negatives and think, “I don’t have this”, “This thing about me is simply horrible!” But what about the positives? We all have achievements and strong sides. The thing is, if we focus on the drawbacks, we will never be able to achieve our goals, because we will constantly drain in our own negativity. In fact, this negativity originates from your mind. However, you have all the power to change it. Moreover, you can start changing it RIGHT NOW. Focus on the positives and count your wins. At first, it will be difficult. But it’s like a muscle: if you train it, it will grow and the process will get easier. Just get in the habit of focusing on your victories. When you see your success, you start understanding that there are a lot of incredible things ahead of you. What a great motivation!
Talk to Yourself Like a Champion
Jon Gordon puts it brilliantly, “Talk to yourself more than you listen to yourself”. Our own mind often tries to bring us down and decrease our power. If we believe in that nonsense, we become powerless. However, all of us have a choice, we can talk to ourselves as if we are champions. In this case, wonderful things can happen and one day you can find yourself sitting on the champion’s throne. Reality responds to your believes: if you think that you’re a loser, you will be a loser and if you think you’re a champion, you will become a champion. The main trick here is not just to speak to yourself as if you’re a champion but also to take action worthy of a champion.
Embrace the power of belief in yourself and wonderful changes will happen!
