How To Start Believing In Yourself

Deciding to follow our dreams is the most difficult decision we, as humans, make. The path to our dreams is a difficult one, but choosing to take it may be the bravest thing you can do. It’s the road less traveled and one way to get through that road is by believing in yourself. Why is it so hard to decide that we’re amazing? How do we change our mindset from ‘can’t’ to ‘can’? It’s not going to be easy, but it’s time to build that confidence in you that will help you make it through to your dreams. It’s time to believe in yourself and here are some things you can do to get started. 


Focus On Your Triumphs- Did you go after that degree? Did you ace that test? Even just a compliment will help you to remember that you’re amazing and have already achieved amazing things. Take out a piece of paper and write down all the impossible things you’ve already done in your life. All you have to do is give yourself some credit.

Focus On What Your Doing Now- Do you remember Gina Rodruiguez’s acceptance speech when she won her Golden Globe for Jane the Virgin? She mentioned that her father taught her to say the mantra “I can and I will,” every morning when she woke up. I want you to add, “I am,” because you probably are already working towards your dream without even noticing. Maybe your starting to write that book, or thinking up creative ideas you want to try out. Those are two examples of doing. Focusing on what you’re doing now can help you to forget about what you’re not doing. It keeps your brain where it needs to be, which is on you.

Make a Mantra Of Your Own- Gina’s dad was onto something by teaching Gina that mantra. Saying a mantra or an affirmation in the morning or whenever you’re loosing hope in yourself can get you through anything while on that road to your dreams. So here’s some you can try: “I believe in myself,” and “I believe I can accomplish my dream.” Make your mantra in the present tense and in an affirmative language.
