“To believe in yourself is to believe in the Unlimited Power that created you. And surrender yourself completely into the arms of Eternal Love.” ~ Luminita D. Saviuc

There are times in life when things don’t go our way. Times when we meet with failure and defeat. And when that happens, we inevitably start to doubt ourselves.


We start to doubt our worth and our ability to make our dreams come true. And we wonder whether we will feel safe and secure, ever again.

How to Believe in Yourself Again

1. To believe in yourself again, make peace with where you are.

To get out of this dark place – back to feeling safe, happy, and secure, and back to believing in yourself again, you need to make peace with where you are at this very moment.

There’s no need to fight against what is. Resistance is futile.

Look within and find the inner strength, wisdom, courage, and confidence to make peace with how your life looks at this moment. And everything that led to this situation. In doing so, you will learn to work with life, and no longer against it. 


2. When you are given more than you can handle, surrender.

“Surrender is a constant process of not resisting or clinging to the moment but instead, continuously turning it over to God. The attention is thus focused on the process of letting go and not on the content of the ‘what’ that is being surrendered.” ~ David Hawkins

Even though at times it feels as though life is against us. In truth, life loves us a great deal. And it wants to hold our hand through the many dark and painful moments.

It wants to guide us, to nurture us, and take all of our burdens away from us.

So when you feel that you are given more than you can handle, give your pains, struggles, fears, and all your worries away – to God and Life itself – through prayermeditation, and through the simple act of humility and surrender. 

3. Trust yourself.

“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” ~ Rumi

You are not alone on this journey you are now on. You never were, and never will be. And if you dare to release all that is false and erroneous – by taking your attention from what is Out there and placing it on what is Within your own Self, you will soon discover that you are a lot more powerful than you thought you were. 

Trust yourself a little more.

Trust that you are not alone. And trust that the same Power that created you is with you, within you, and all-around you – guiding you, loving you, and keeping you safe through it all.

4. To believe in yourself again, put the past behind you.

The past is in the past and should be left there. And you know why? Because that’s just old energy.

It wants to guide us, to nurture us, and take all of our burdens away from us.

So when you feel that you are given more than you can handle, give your pains, struggles, fears, and all your worries away – to God and Life itself – through prayermeditation, and through the simple act of humility and surrender.

4. To believe in yourself again, put the past behind you.

The past is in the past and should be left there. And you know why? Because that’s just old energy.

Let it all go.

Let go of what happened in the past – any guilt, shameblame, and resentments you might be holding on to. And allow yourself to move forward in life, without that heavy burden of the past on your shoulders.

5. To believe in yourself again, learn to forgive yourself.

Fill your heart with love. Forgive. Release. And let go. Forgive yourself for the many so-called failures and mistakes of the past. And allow yourself to be free.

You have done the best you could with what you knew at that moment. And now that you know better, you can choose to do better.

6. Stand guard at the gate of your mind.

“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own thoughts, unguarded. But once mastered, no one can help you as much, not even your father or your mother.” ~ Buddha

Thoughts have power, creative power, and if you let your mind wander wherever it pleases, it will continue to trick you into thinking that who you are is never enough – good enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, worthy enough, etc.. And it will continue to damage you and the quality of your life.

Don’t believe everything you think.

Stand guard at the gate of your mind. And be very careful with the thoughts you think and the words you speak. Discipline your mind to think only thoughts that are positive, uplifting and empowering. And choose to ignore all those thoughts that are meant to hurt and harm you.

7. Put the comparisons aside.

“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.” ~ Lao Tzu

Never allow your mind to trick you into thinking that it’s okay to compare yourself and your life with the lives of those around you. 

You are a unique individual with a unique path to walk in life. And the work you are meant to do in this world is yours and yours alone.

Nobody can take it away from you. And nobody can do it better than you yourself can. 

Put the comparisons aside. And focus on what you were born to do. Walk the path you are meant to walk upon – at the speed, you were meant to walk on. And forget about what others are doing.

“Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Ponder the path of your feet; then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left.” ~ Proverbs 4:25-27

8. Create your life from the present moment.

In each moment you are born again – free from the many mistakes and failures of the past, and free from their heavy burden. And when you choose to create your life from the present moment, you are in fact choosing to create your life from a place of infinite choices and possibilities. And no longer from a place of fear and limitations.
