How to Believe in Yourself & Positively Change Your life

“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.” ~ Norman Vincent Peale 

Most people will spend their entire life being told that their dreams are something that they can’t do. I was told many such things -> “You can’t play football with the boys!”(I was the only girl in an all boys team for so long), or “How can you become a psychologist?” etc. We all face this at some point in our lives. No one is immune to the negativity of the world. But you can still believe in yourself and change your life.

Do You find it hard to hear everyone around you tell you “You can’t”?
Can’t is such an ugly, often demotivating word. The more times you hear it, the easier it is to believe the lies that are being told. You have to search for a healing way to respond to it. Don’t believe any negative thoughts that people say about what you can’t do, because only you truly KNOW what you can or cannot do! And understand, that people who are negative towards you are often hiding a certain level of their own insecurity behind that “all put together” mask.

As 2020 inches closer and closer, we all get into the introspecting mode. We will think about the year ending in terms of achievements, high points, low points, successes, failures, learning points etc. Introspection and a constant need to be a better more evolved human(e) being makes us think of the year that’s gone by in a learning light.

I have definitely learnt a whole LOT this past year. And to be honest, this has been a hard year for me in many aspects: emotionally draining, physically challenging etc. One of the major reasons I can look at the year gone by in a positive light, is because I have managed to keep the positive promises to myself from last year. These positive promises to myself help me stay on track. They help me to balance myself, no matter how hard things get throughout the year.
