Intro: How to Believe in Yourself
This how-to was repurposed from omghow.com.
Let's face it, we've all been afraid of not achieving something before, and have at one point or another, doubted our skills and accomplishments. As long as you remain positive, keep persistent, and be patient, good things will happen! You just have to believe it.
Don’t compare yourself to others. This is one of the hardest lessons to learn as comparing yourself to others is part of human nature (especially in the day and age of social media). Whenever someone has accomplished something, practice being happy for them. Practice putting gratitude out in the world, as that can only circle around and help you, and always remember that their success does not in anyway hinder yours.
Baby steps. There is much truth to the statement that things don't just happen overnight. Success is often times, a long, long journey. You just have to take things one.day.at.a.time. Patience is a virtue, my friend.
Failure is good. It teaches you what not to do, and that's extremely valuable.
Thoughts become things. You have to believe in what you want before anyone else can. You have to constantly, even when it gets tough, remind yourself that this will happen because you can make it happen. Only you can do it, and if you keep telling yourself this: you will.
