More often than not, it can be easy to lose sight of what you're capable of and to let others define your limitations. But throughout history, there are stories of people who have defied the odds, succeeded in the face of their fears and proven that they can accomplish great things all by believing in themselves and their ability to achieve. But is there a time when we should not believe? We would say never. No matter what you choose to do in life, you will have to believe. Forget the facts and figures; it’s all about having faith and trust that you’re heading in the right direction. Be it as a student or an employee, as an entrepreneur or a street artist, you will have to trust yourself if you want to achieve success.
You can't always control what happens to you in life, but you can control what you believe about it. There is always an opportunity to extend your reach beyond the things that seems to act like clouds, limiting your vision on the things you need to do, things you need to achieve and conquer.
You will have good days. You will have bad days. You will have great days. You will have horrible days. You will have productive days. You will have lazy days. You will have overwhelming days. You will always make mistakes. You will always fall short of your expectations. You are going to get frustrated and tired and maybe even angry. And that's okay. The world is going to be cruel to you sometimes. Sometimes, it'll be cruel to you just because it can be, because it makes no sense and gives no reason. I believe we are all here for a reason, and that reason is to learn from what happens to us, and to grow from it and make sure we continue to ride on
Research indicates that 84% of people won't achieve their goals. And that 59% of people say they are "dissatisfied with their jobs" and that the biggest reason is "I lack the skills to advance". In business, success is not about luck. It's about the hard work you put into getting there. success requires self-awareness and self-reflection. Success requires you to believe in yourself so that you can work towards your dreams, no matter how big or small. You will never get what you want if you don't know what you want - and that's where you need to step up and help yourself to see a bigger picture of yourself, to achieve higher than they ever thought possible. So that, when you work together to achieve things that you have set to, anywhere, there are no limits to what we can achieve.
When it comes to starting and growing a business, it's easy to get caught up in the second-guessing of your idea and the endless chatter about how life challenges you face are stopping you from making progress. Even if you make smart choices, how you feel is still tied to progress. It's hard to keep believing when your friends and colleagues don't share your excitement, when you feel like you're running out of time or money, when you doubt whether your idea will ever work or feel like quitting because no matter what happens it won't change the outcome you feared. Success doesn't happen overnight so don't be afraid to believe in yourself or give up on your dream—just keep believing until you overcome the challenges and achieve your goals.
You may believe in your friends, trust your partner, and are confident in your professional skills. So why is it that when it comes to your own ability, you seem to doubt it? You might not realize but you are holding yourself back by being your own worst critic. The thing that holds you back is your belief. Belief is something that you have to have in yourself. It is the force that propels you forward into your goals and marks the different between those who succeed and those who fail. You must believe in all aspects of yourself, no matter what anyone else thinks. Don't allow others to define who you are or think that because they don't agree with your goals, it means you shouldn't pursue them.
If people told you that you couldn't do something, then that should only be motivation to make it happen. If your friends didn't believe in you then why should you let them distract you from your dreams? Belief gets us through even the hardest times and propels us forward. And if at first, it doesn't seem like anything is happening, then keep believing because eventually, everything will work out.
