Do you have Faith in God? Do you Believe in God? Let’s talk about how to have faith in yourself.
Importance of believing in yourself
The importance of believing in yourself is simple. When you believe in yourself, you recognize your abilities and you are able to achieve much more. Believing yourself affects the choices you make, the dream you have and the life you live. Believing in yourself is important for you to achieve and succeed at goals.
Believing in yourself is the first secret to Success
- Be in the right crowd
Surround yourself with the right kind of people. Positive people will push you and courage you to achieve and be the best version of you. Negative people pull you down with words and deeds. We all have negative people in our lives, avoid them and if you can’t avoid them, tune them out. Positive people cheer you up, you are happy around them. Negative people, make you anxious and worried.
- Self Reflection
Do a self-reflection. What is your current situation? Accept your past mistakes and celebrate past success. Take responsibility for your failures. Without mistakes, there can be no growth. You are wiser because of these mistakes and failures.
- Set Realistic Goals
After reflection, you need to set SMART goals. Your goals should be Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-based. That’s the plan! Write it down! Make a vision board.
- Ask for Help
No man is an island. Do not be afraid to speak up and ask for help. Do you need help writing an application for college? Talk to people who have written such, ask for help. Get help online. There are thousands of YouTube videos on every topic you can imagine. Seek help.
- Stay Focused
Stay focused means you are aware of what needs to be done and the steps to get it done. Set a daily schedule, have a plan and follow through. Focus on your goals, this will help you eliminate distractions both internal and external. If you focus, you can control your thinking, your emotions, and your reactions. STAY FOCUSED!
Change your mindset and you change your life. Always have a positive mindset. Think positive things and speak words of good things. there is power in your words. “Death and Life are in the power of the tongue… Proverbs 18:21.” Instead of saying If I get the promotion… Speak it… When I get the promotion… Believe and you are halfway there
- Self Care
Self-care is important to take of your body and soul. Eat healthy, exercise and avoid the use of substances that take over your mind and hinder you from achieving your goals or moving forward.
- Have Faith In God
I mentioned in the beginning that you need to have faith in God. By believing in yourself, you now see yourself the way God sees you.
“You are fearfully and wonderfully made” Psalm 139:14.
You are not competing against anyone!
You are not trying to be better than anyone!
You are only striving daily to be a better person than the person in the mirror.
If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, accept Him as your Lord & Savior.
I am a big fan of Marvel Movies. In the Black Panther movie, my favorite part is the challenge scene when T’Challa was about to be defeated and Queen Ramona shouted, “SHOW THEM WHO YOU ARE!”
Whenever you feel are frustrated, tired or feel like giving up. Remember these words. The world is waiting for you!
