Today I wanted to talk about a key ingredient to breaking down those barriers to success and that is “Believing in yourself”.
I wrote a post about negativity previously and that has some similarities to what I’m talking about here. You see, it is a fact of life that most people are not driven in the slightest. They are happy working their 9-5 jobs skating through life without any real ambition. The problem here is that although some of these people are not “action takers” they don’t like others to be either. This can often result in them pulling other people dreams and aspirations apart. I’ve experienced it myself.
Do you know any people like this?
When entrepreneurs take the plunge with a project or dream we often battle with our own internal demons. We think to ourselves, “Will this work?”… “Is this a good idea?”… “Will others see the value in this idea?”. This is a natural outcome of getting out of our comfort zone and actually doing something. Taking an idea and turning it into a reality. It might be risky, there may be a level of uncertainty… but by god, it feels good! And if you don’t try you will never know.
The issue is that some people do not share our dream and because they aren’t the ones getting off their backside and taking the required actionable steps they will not offer the support you’d expect.
You see, whatever you do in life you have to believe in yourself. You have to believe in what you are creating, and the value it will bring to others. Not believing in yourself is one of the biggest SUCCESS KILLERS known to man (or woman). It’s all to do with mindset. If you don’t believe in your idea then your idea has failed before you have even started.
Stay positive, stay focused, stay driven and more importantly believe in yourself and your goals.
