๐Ÿ’› Believe in yourself –

What does self-belief mean?

Self-belief means to trust in your own positive characteristics. If you believe in yourself, you deem yourself worthy. Also, if you believe in yourself, it is easier to have self-confidence and to exude self-confidence. Self-confidence is an attractive trait to have, as long as you are not overly confident and full of yourself.
If you are confident and if you believe in yourself, it is easier for others to believe in you too.

Self-belief is a very important quality to have. Without self-belief, that is without the ability to believe in your own worth and actions, you will struggle to reach your full potential. Without self-belief you are less likely to lead a fulfilling life. And, without self-belief, you wonโ€™t achieve what you are really capable of.
Self-belief is the way you feel about yourself. It doesnโ€™t take into account your looks or your achievements.

Self-confidence could stem from overcoming certain obstacles in your life or from learning and mastering a new skill. But, you can also learn to be more self-confident.

How do you go about learning to be more self-confident?

Here are 12 things that will help you to feel and act more confident: ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘Š

  1. Focus on positive thoughts
  2. Get to know yourself โ€“ the good and the bad
  3. Be kind in everything that you do
  4. Donโ€™t spend too much time listening to your inner critic
  5. Be aware of your principles and values in life and live according to them
  6. Visualise yourself as you want to be and then work towards your goals
  7. Look after yourself โ€“ physically and emotionally
  8. Think of yourself as a winner ๐Ÿฅ‡
  9. Acquire new skills
  10. Become more knowledgeable โ€“ read whenever you can ๐Ÿ“š
  11. Take smart risks
  12. Do something scary often in order to move out of your comfort zone(s) ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    Remember, the more you believe in yourself, the more self-confident you will be.

    Now โ€“ choose a mantra (a phrase repeated often to remind you of something) for yourself. Paint it on your wall. Make it your screensaver. Put it on a mood board. Remind yourself of it constantly.

    Mantra 1 โ€“ The best thing I ever did was believing in me.
    Mantra 2 โ€“ Believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable.
    Mantra 3 โ€“ Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution.
    Mantra 4 โ€“ The more you believe in yourself, the more you can trust yourself. The more you trust yourself, the less you compare yourself to others.
    Mantra 5 โ€“ Believe in yourself and the universe is forced to believe in you.
    Mantra 6 โ€“ Believe in yourself. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacles.
    Mantra 7 โ€“ Not believing in yourself is like driving through life with your handbrake on.
    Or, simply come up with your own mantra.
