Our limitations are what we have created as our belief about ourselves. We have potential beyond belief, most people never realise that potential due to certain beliefs they have about themselves.
We experience feedback from parents, teachers, neighbours, acquaintances etc since we were just toddlers and we have internalised those perceptions as the truth about ourselves but many of those perceptions could not be further from the truth. others may not believe in you but you are they are the last person left to believe in yourself.
Self-doubt plays a role in the decisions you make every day. Self-doubt is the feeling that you are not enough, you don’t measure up to what it takes to achieve your goals.
Don’t believe in society’s mantra: once a loser, always a loser. You may have lost in the past due to the circumstances you experienced, had you been born to a different family in a different environment your reality would have been much different.
What you have been told as the truth about yourself is true only if you BELIEVE it. Self-belief is paralysing. It causes people to choose misery over joy and emptiness over fulfillment.
It is only by regaining belief in yourself that you can change the direction of your life. A person’s past does not have to define a person’s future. We have a choice as to whether the past defines us or refines us.
People can believe that great change in someone’s life is a miracle but the truth is that we don’t have to wait for a miracle, we can create our own miracle.
Our expression of our true selves is pushed down by others and then by ourselves because we believe what others think and express about us, this is what causes self-doubt.
Sometimes you have to stand up for yourself, you have to say “shut up” to that voice inside your head that says you are not enough. That inner voice creates doubt and prevents you from being bold and taking a leap of faith.
What you have in life today is what you believe about yourself not what is the truth about yourself. if you do not believe in yourself it will not happen for you.
Churchhill once said that courage is going from failure to failure without losing enthusiasm. You must have the courage to act. You may lose many battles in the process of winning the war.
Your self-doubt is the voice inside your head that you can choose to listen to or not to listen to. You are stronger than your self-doubt. You have to face that self-doubt as it can be the greatest limitation in your life.
You must have faith in the face of self-doubt. Faith doesn’t mean the absence of doubt. The definition of faith means that there is still doubt. Faith means doing despite the presence of doubt, it is about trusting your ability and taking action.
