In Order To Succeed, We Must First Believe We Can.
Have you ever dreamed of doing something but thought….”I can’t do it, I am not good at that, other people are better at it than me, I don’t have what it takes, I’m going to fail for sure”…. and so on. This is negative self-talk that continuously plays like a tape recorder in our heads and prevents us from achieving our goal.
Just like a tape recorder we can push the stop button, erase the negative messages and record different messages that allow us to squash those negatives voices and build new and positive messages that tell us; “we can do it, we are good enough, we have what it takes!”
I have been encouraged by many to pursue a specific dream, and was reminded recently that everything we need is within us. It is what we tell ourselves that prevent us from either pursuing a dream or succeeding. Our perception of ourselves and our ability is everything. It can be positive or negative. It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.
Stop and think for a moment….how many times in one day do you negative self-talk? Has it prevented you from moving forward? Has it prevented you from realizing a dream? Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Start to turn that negative self talk into positive thoughts that can push you to achieve your goal. It is as easy as changing the wording. Instead of ”I can’t do it”, replace with, “I have everything I need within myself to achieve this goal” or “I have the ability to conquer this” or “I can achieve anything as I am focused, determined and strong.” Imagine what we would achieve in life if we continuously played these positive messages in our minds and actually believed them. The possibilities and opportunities would be limitless.
We have everything we need within us!
Discover the power within!
