We all are social beings with some particular roles. In the struggle of life we see that there are times when we seemingly lose everything, there seems no support around, no one for us, no helping hand from family, no friends. It is only the individual, alone who is fighting, fighting for himself/herself, finding some way out to get oneself engaged into the worldly activities in order to live and survive on this earth.
In such situations, I feel that it is only in oneself that one can believe in, that’s the only ray of hope. One should I feel only believe in oneself that, trust me, that would certainly create wonders.
Some people say it’s resources, luck, background or connections that create successful people. Whereas I surely agree that all these and many other factors influence the path of every individual, the most contributing factor to achieving something significant is self-belief. Without this key ingredient, there’s not a lot that could help you.
10 reasons for believe in oneself.
1. Increases Self Confidence.
Self-Confidence is one of the most vital qualities that a successful and happy human being should have in himself/herself. Believing in oneself and his /her capabilities, capacities is definitely an aid in helping one to boost oneself in any situation .A person who does not believe in himself/herself quiet clearly looses half of the game at that very point. So, self confidence should always be a part of your being whatever the circumstances may be. Obviously, over confidence should not be allowed to overpower you.
2. Inspires You.
You motivate yourself to do things instead of waiting for someone to push you and you find ways to encourage yourself when no one else is supporting you. You can be your own inspiration, it is my advice that one should always look into the past when he/she has been able to achieve the target. Those happy moments certainly helps oneself to believe in one’s ability and brings back that source of inspiration that one is in dire need of. It is you, who did it in the past and why not now? You still can do it-this should be the spirit that one must bring into the light and act accordingly to the right path.
3. Negative thoughts away.
The more you tell yourself that you can’t, the more you move away from success. Finding an excuse that seems reasonable is incredibly easy, since our brains love to rationalize. By feeding your brain with positive thinking and self-belief affirmations, you create no space for pessimistic thoughts. And even when they arrive from time to time, your confident attitude beats them instantly. Negative thought is something that is so abundantly available but positivity is scarce. Negativity is the worst thing that one has to face and it is the root cause of many problems.
Depression as we all know, the mental condition that could lead one to give up one’s life, is the worst outcome of this negativity. One should always try to keep oneself far away from pessimistic things and always try to find good in things around and people around.
Once one gets trapped into this web of negative thoughts and things it is very difficult to come out of it. When an individual is able to live happily and with confidence, it is seen that positive things seem to be making path for the individual.
4. Gain Self Respect.
Respect is something every individual craves for. A person who is self assured is able to make positive impact on people around him. The world automatically seems to drive towards that person, respect him/her. Along with the respect from others one is able to respect oneself and hence able to move towards higher goals in life.
5. Helps to Visualize.
We all have dreams and fantasies that we crave for. It is surely a part of the initial stages when one sets one’s ambition. There is a chance that when you see yourself as a writer or an actor that is when you imagine yourself to be in that position, only then, you will be able to move forward, your love for that particular interest will grow more and more and perhaps, eventually you will be able to reach it. This part of visualization of various positions good or bad is what one is able to do when one is aware of oneself.
6. Discover new opportunity.
When a person is aware of his talents, and works for it wholeheartedly, and believes in himself/herself, there comes a time when one is able to open up new window of opportunities. One is actually able to present oneself with full enthuse and give his/her best and hence the outcome is actually the best one. New opportunities themselves come when one is open to new ideas and is ready to expose oneself to new fields.
7. Increases Empathy
When you start believing in yourself, that very moment you also start increasing empathy. It’s not only belief in yourself but at the same time you also start to think and visualise from the view point of the other person.
8. Develop relationship.
We are social beings and to live we need company and it is only us who are actually responsible for our social surroundings .It is completely dependent on our attitude and behavior that we are able to connect with people. In today’s world where everybody wants to make contacts with the best of the people, there is an obvious need of self- confidence, it is only then one will be able to present oneself in the best way possible among others. And I strongly feel that it is only people with individuality, one with clear views that people choose to engage with. Hence,when one gives oneself that dignity and respect that one wants from others,only then one will be actually able to develop connections with them.
9.Increases decision making ability.
We all are individuals with our own minds, our notions. Individual choice should always be given preference; the habit of being a part of the herd should not be your way. Deciding is what is too important and something that only can help you to show up your importance and ideas to others. Having belief in oneself always, yes it always does assist you in making significant decisions in life. When one has actually searched for one’s talents and accepted one’s weakness one is surely capable to decide what is good and what is bad for oneself
Failure in life leads an individual to blame oneself and self -love completely dies away. Self love to a certain extent is very important; it helps one to progress towards one’s aim. When there is love for one there is always a scope for development. Self- love helps one to remain enthusiastic, keep striving and gain the inner satisfaction .Hence, believing in oneself leads to loving oneself .Individuality as mentioned earlier is very relevant in life. One must try to speak out one’s ideas and thoughts and that is possible only when one is able to believe in oneself.
