The Power of Self-Belief

Written by on November 6, 2018 in Conscious Business, Conscious Evolution, Inspirational, Thrive with 1 Comment

When you believe in yourself, there is little to stop you in whatever you want to accomplish. Self-belief gives you the power to push forward and to defy the odds. You will be able to handle any roadblocks that come your way. You will also brush off the naysayers. You will experience peace of mind and joy in your achievements when you build unshakable self-belief.

As I said in my previous post, The Ultimate Formula for Unstoppable Success, success is 80% mindset and 20% strategy, and self-belief is a critical factor in developing a mindset for success.

To build self-belief you need to work on self-knowledge and self-acceptance, appreciating your gifts and strengths and accepting your ‘weaknesses’. To me, weakness is a misnomer as I believe that we are given the gifts and talents that are perfectly matched to our life purpose. Our so-called weaknesses are those abilities that we don’t need because they are not relevant to our purpose. Imagine if composers like Mozart and Beethoven agonized because they weren’t great painters like Leonardo DaVinci or Michelangelo and neglected their genius at composing the most beautiful music!

Instead of focusing on your ‘weaknesses’, put your attention and energy into developing your gifts, and stop comparing yourself to others and lapsing into self-judgment that you’re not as good as them. Your gifts are unique and so comparison is useless and self-defeating.

Build your self-belief by celebrating all your achievements, the times you’ve overcome challenges and when people have shown love and appreciation for you.

From Self-Belief to Unstoppable Success

Unstoppable success comes when you’ve built that self-belief.

To keep that self-belief strong, you need to define your goals so you can be completely clear about what you want to achieve and celebrate EVERY step towards your goals. You wouldn’t start a journey without a map. You too need a map to guide you on how to proceed. Too many people skip this step and wonder why they aren’t getting anywhere.

Goals are your guidance, but carrying through with them is only done when you believe that it’s possible. The belief is the energy you need to take action. It helps you to focus on getting your tasks completed.

You will also build confidence when you have self-belief. Having an aura of confidence is powerful as others will be attracted to your confident energy. They will follow your lead, and you will help show them what is possible. When you run into any stumbling blocks (and you will), that confidence will help you see them through. You will know how to take alternative action when necessary. The people following you will recognize and respect that and be inspired by your success.

When challenges occur you need to be focused on why you started your journey in the first place. Use affirmations and visualizations to reinforce your message. Be consistent with your affirmations and keep the vision in your heart and mind bigger than any perceived obstacles. The challenges are essential catalysts for your growth and overcoming them will take you to the next level of expertise and achievement.

You may experience resistance to your goals and vision from your family and friends because they may have their own limiting beliefs that make them doubt that what you aspire to is possible. They will see it as helping you avoid risks or mistakes. Without a strong self-belief, many people succumb to this negative pressure and give up.

One way to prevent this is to join groups of like-minded individuals or join a mastermind group to support your business goals and/or your personal development. These groups will help you overcome any negative influences and encourage you to stay focused on your goals and believe that you will succeed.

Attending these groups will build friendships and connections with people who can help you by sharing their knowledge and experience and even introduce you to other people in their network with the skills and resources that you need to achieve your goals. You may even form business partnerships by making these connections.

It’s always good to know that you have the support of people who believe in you and who are also going through similar challenges. They understand when everyone else around you doesn’t. Your self-belief will strengthen considerably by having this support and by building ever-increasing levels of achievement and ultimately the unstoppable success that you desire and deserve.
