Believe in yourself

“Others can inspire you, but ultimately the only thing that empowers you is what lies within you and learning how to better utilize what you’ve been given.”– TD Jakes

Everything you have in your life is a result of your belief in yourself and the belief that it’s possible.


If you don’t believe in yourself, it’s hard to grow and learn. Like knowledge, confidence can’t be transferred. The person that needs to believe in you is you. This is not about motivation, tenacity or drive it’s about believing that you can do it.
That is why the biggest difference between successful people and unsuccessful people isn’t intelligence or opportunity or resources. It’s the belief that they can make their goals happen.

There is always a time when the lack of belief is a major factor in one’s life.



There is always that time where you didn’t pursue that ideal career, or start your own business, because you didn’t think you could. You also didn’t stick to habits because you didn’t really believe you had the discipline. You were shy with girls, maybe you had a hard time making new friends, and you didn’t assert yourself in the workplace. You didn’t push past your comfort zone. All because you didn’t really believe you could.

“As soon as you trust yourself, you will know how to live.” –Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Learning how to believe in yourself will open up endless possibilities in your life. At times you may find this difficult to do. The truth is that we’ve been conditioned throughout our lives to doubt ourselves. We must retrain ourselves to get rid of our fears and self-doubt in order to build self-esteem and self-confidence.

Everything you have in your life is a result of your belief in yourself and the belief that it’s possible.

We can do great things in life, but we first have to realize the power that we have within us to do these great things. Without this belief and this determination then nothing will ever happen. Everybody has the power to do amazing things; both big and small, and not one person is left out of this equation. Have strong beliefs in yourself and you’ll go further than you ever thought possible. Remember that God has given you these gifts to use.

“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles, and less than perfect conditions. So what? Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident, and more and more successful.” –Mark Victor Hansen

  2. I started nodding the second i read the title. Amazing read! And yes i can’t agree more with you, not only you need to believe in yourself, you also need to challenge yourself.
