If you are someone who has never believed in themselves, it can be difficult if you feel as though you need to see some kind of result in order to believe in yourself. It is almost like you would never believe that you can do it, because you don’t have the results unless you actually try. This can keep you in a constant cycle from pursuing what you want from life.
If you want to get out of this cycle, then here are some tips to start believing in yourself.
So how do you start believing in yourself?
See your potential
Do you like to learn? Do you have a knack for certain things? Or maybe you have a passion that you want to pursue even if you have doubts about your abilities.
It’s okay if you are not an expert! No expert started as an expert when they began. They have all gone through their struggles and lows but haven’t always shown it to everyone. What is important is if you see your potential in whatever you want to pursue, and just go for it.
As you go through your challenges, which will happen, you will just figure it out as they come.
Change your mindset
If you keep thinking that you are not good enough, you will not give good enough effort. You will not be giving your 100%. You have to believe that you have it in you. Whether you believe it or not, you have to have the mindset that it will be done anyways. Whether you make ten mistakes or fifty, you will keep learning and keep getting better.
Changing your mindset, changes your approach and actions.
Just do it
You may not feel like it, you may go through emotional ups and downs. It will happen with almost anything you pursue if not everything. Whether you are pursuing new friendships, or a new career, just keep going. Your emotions are temporary, and do not define your reality.
Believing in yourself is not based on proof but passion. If you have the passion, then you have the drive to make it happen whether you have already experienced it or not.
