Do you believe in yourself?

Are you showing signs of someone who is confident, daring and gutsy? Do you show conviction and feelings of success? If these are the signs you give while making decisions, these are the things that you will invite.

Our world world is consumed in defending their beliefs and opinions, sometimes even to the point of harming themselves or others; beliefs about religion, state of world affairs, or whats good or bad, whats right or wrong. Yet most remain oblivious or indifferent to the most fundamental and pure of all beliefs; belief in your own self. 

Swami Vivekananda,once said, “You cannot believe in God until you believe in yourself.”

And its true, the birth of every belief begin with us; therefore we don’t even believe in ourselves, every other belief falls hollow. 

Success begins with your self-concept, what you think you are made of. We are not talking about ego, which, is the basis of a self-centered attitude and a superiority complex. Instead, we are talking about a winning attitude and positive pride.

Your feelings create your reality. When you send positive vibrations to others, you receive positive vibrations. What you can imagine vividly and invite with feelings, you attract in your life. Feelings, positive vibes and imagination begin the winning attitude cycle.

What you believe is what becomes reality. Once you create a new belief and reinforce it in every way you can, you start to breathe new life into yourself. This is good and bad. The good part is that you are in charge of this. The bad part is that you cannot rely on others or pass the buck.

If you do not bet on yourself, no one will bet on you. No one will believe in you more than you believe in yourself. When you believe in yourself, the whole world believes in you. Belief in yourself changes the landscape. Your demeanour, voice, understanding all change. People begin to respect what you have to say. You increase your value in their mind.

These feelings are translated into goals, action and decisions. Remember we are limited by our own beliefs. We can go as far as our self-belief lets us go.
