Believing in Yourself Despite Any Challenge

 

Inspirallumination_Faith_IsYour mindset will determine your level of success, or lack thereof. A positive mindset can empower you to abolish hurdles before they become too challenging.

 

It may be difficult to believe in yourself when everything around you seems to be crumbling into pieces, but keeping faith is the only way to trudge through the hard times and see yourself clear to better days.

 

Try these strategies to help boost your self-belief when you’re feeling the pressure of tough times:

1. Reflect on the past.

Surely you’ve encountered seemingly insurmountable situations in the past. How have you succeeded in the most unpleasant scenarios? Clearly, your ability to overcome these situations speaks loudly for your strength and abilities.

  • In some situations, you may be able to emulate your past solutions by adapting them to fit your current situation. Other times, you’ll be able to learn what not to do from past trials and tribulations.
  • The past needn’t dictate your future. It’s possible to reflect without working up old, unresolved feelings. This is a positive exercise. If you begin to feel negative emotions, move onto another technique, which can help you increase self-confidence in your abilities.

 

2. Act immediately.

Rather than retreating into your personal cocoon when a situation becomes intimidating, address it immediately. The longer you allow a situation to sit without attention, the more urgent it will become. A perfect example is debt. (ugh… I’ve been there)

  • Avoid cornering yourself with urgency by creating a proactive plan now. Or, better yet, have a just-in-case plan before the event ever happens. It’s okay to take a few hours to create a plan of attack. But, if you’re still brainstorming weeks from today, you may be stalling.
  • Only you can be the source of a solution. You are in charge of managing your life and ensuring its success. Take pride in this power. After all, you’re free – no one commands you! Your life is what you make it. And you can use your power to start off on the right foot each and every day.

 

3. Believe it.

You will make it through. You’ve found your way out of a tough situation before. You’ll do it now and again sometime in the future. There is always a way to get your head above the water – always. You’ll get better at it once you gain experience.

  • You have a fan base of supporters. Or a tribe as I like to call them sometimes.  Your network of friends on Facebook and off… your family and extended family… all are cheering you on every day. Chances are that no one doubts your abilities the way you do. In fact, they have faith in your abilities because you’ve proven your strength time and time again.
  • As Bernice Johnson Reagon once said, “Life’s challenges are not supposed to paralyze you; they’re supposed to help you discover who you are.”
  • Now is as good of a time as any to show yourself what you’re made of. Confirm to yourself that you’re as strong and tenacious as you suspect yourself to be.

 

Everyone encounters hard times – it’s simply a part of life.

And a very major part of how you will address these hard times is dependent on your mindset and your ability to believe in yourself, even throughout the toughest of times.

Your mindset can be your best friend or your worst enemy. If you allow your mindset to shift into negative territory, you’ll end up with negative results. Remember, you attract the energy you exude!

I’m so glad that the Universe has brought us together. I believe it is because the Universe always conspires to support us in achieving our dreams. I’ve spent the better part of my life “seeking” my purpose and figuring out how exactly I am meant to prosper by being and doing something that I am passionate about. And found myself… lost between my love of all things spiritual, enlightening & self-growth related and what I thought I “had to do to” to earn a living online. All I wanted to find was someone who would confidently say… * it’s perfect to just be authentically YOU; * you are more than enough to attract prosperity & abundance into your life * you can use the Law of Attraction / energy as your marketing and… * “I’ll share with you HOW I am being that into my experience!” Does that resonate with you? If so, we were definitely meant to connect!
