You need to believe in yourself in whatever you intend to do. Fear is just illusional. Step forward, work hard towards your lofty goals and surely you will achieve them.
You Must Be In Control Of Your Life
Sometimes you become afraid of failure, rejection, disappointment, disapproval and other bad results that may come into your life. But the truth is; so far as you find yourself on this planet, as mere human being with limitations in your abilities, you must prepare yourself to face any unpleasant situation. Whether you like or not they will come. Believe in yourself because there is something greater in you.
Considering the fact that, there are thousands of opinions out there shouldn’t scare you to speak your mind and take the right action. We can never fall under the same beliefs, ideologies, cultures etc. And there is nothing to infringe your right to express your views, do what makes you happy and make choices. That is only if your choices and actions do not break the laws of the land.
You Were Meant For Something Greater
There is no boundary to the dreams you choose to pursue. Your dreams must be unlimited. The sky is not the limit, you need to move beyond the sky. Believe in yourself that whatever you have set your mind on would be accomplished.
Self-belief is not about arrogance nor self-conceitedness. With respect, self-discipline and hard work, you can achieve your lofty goals.
Mistakes You Should Never Make
Anyone who is willing to taste success in life is focused on a goal. Any noise or obstruction falls over his/her ears like water. You are the real source of your own success and happiness.
1. Avoid Comparison:
In a world of 7 billion people and still counting, no one will look exactly the same as you in terms of appearance, intelligence, interests, the taste of preference, beliefs, and abilities.
In the same way, you cannot be the same as your friends, co-workers or anyone anywhere in this world. Even if the person resembles you, you would be different in many ways. This kind of ‘uniqueness’ is what you must embrace. Believe in yourself by unleashing all the abilities in you for maximum output.
If you know your value, you wouldn’t undermine your self, you wouldn’t cheapen yourself for people to trample on your talents, wisdom, success and all the good things waiting for you in the future. If you can get rid of negaholics and have confidence in yourself, you can be who you really want to be.
“Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.” – Bill Gates
Bill Gates is absolutely right. You dare not try to be better than your predecessors nor your contemporaries. If you would like to be better than anyone, it should be yourself. Yes!, be in competition with yourself and you will be the best in the long run.
2. Never Be Afraid To Try:
It is likely, people will turn down on you in moments you need their help the most. Don’t enslave yourself to let people make you a failure. If they say “NO” to your request for help, DIY (Do It Yourself).
Remember the story of the frog who told his friends that he was going to climb the tree right in front of him. All his friends shouted; “it is not possible!” it is not possible!!.” Thinking they were cheering him up, he climbed the tree. You know why?. Because he was deaf. You too can turn deaf ears on negative people and their negativities.
Things could go wrong in your life at work, in the house that you would need a so-called ‘professional’ to fix. If they refuse, you can give it a try than doing nothing at all. You may not always need a carpenter to fix your broken door, nor a Gardner to keep your lawns nicely cut. You can give it a try. Remember the words of Albert Einstein;
“I am thankful for all of those who said NO to me. It’s because of them I’m doing it myself.” – Albert Einstein
3. Avoid Laziness:
Laziness is like a sickness with unforeseen side effects in the shorter run. If you really want to make an impact in this world, then you must be knowledgeable about the best ways to deal with laziness. It retards development and success.
Believe in yourself and take immediate action against anything that will cost you in the future. Do it now and be free. Procrastination is a thief of time. It might be too late to catch up with a flight to your promised land.
