Whatever you want from life, be it better health, a promotion at work, being more creative, you need to believe you can reach the goal.
What is the goal you want to achieve? What are your beliefs about this goal?
Here are some health goals you may consider, getting 7-8 hours of sleep daily, 30-60 minutes of exercise regularly, being free of addictions, and plan daily spiritual timelike yoga or meditation.
Business goals maybe, retain or gain more customers, or start using social media to build your business.
Personal goals maybe, self-development, learn a new skill or hobby, let go of the past, travel, or be more creative.
All of the above goals are much easier to achieve if you to believe in yourself.
If you want to start meditating to gain all the health benefits, you need to believe you can make it happen. If we start by saying it is hard or I can’t do it, I have too many thoughts, we will not get very far with the practise and give up.
Believing in ourselves.
Many of us have negative beliefs from childhood buried in our subconscious. These beliefs often form our negative self-talk and stop us from being successful in life. A good practice is to stand in front of the mirror in the morning, and before you go to bed and listen to your self-talk when a negative thought comes to mind, counteract it with positive words. An example, “I am not creative” simply say, “my creativity is unique and good”. By doing this, you remind yourself of the truth of your abilities before your mind absorbed the negativity in your environment as a child.
If you are often around people who are negative and put you down, start to spend less time with them. Spend time with people who give you encouragement and help. If you do not want to be held back from success, limiting your time with negative people is helpful. Negativity is contagious, like flu.
Only you can believe in yourself, ask yourself, “how would the person I wish to be, act in this situation?” Act like the person you want to be; let go of your self-doubts.
