PE: 5 reasons to believe in yourself

Tue Jan 22, 2013, 7:56 AM

Success is not a measure of how much money you earn or how popular you are, rather, it is being able to find your passion - one that makes you happy and ultimately, one that you would be happy to leave as your legacy. To make a step forward to reach your dream takes smarts and guts but why couldn't you? Here is five reasons why you can.

:bulletpurple: 1. Everyone was born equal

More-less, this is true, some people are born more challenged than others but we all possess skills and ability to learn. It is possible to build something out of nothing if we really want to. It all comes down to our preferences and decisions.

"Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent."

Eleanor Roosevelt

:bulletpurple: 2. Overcoming your fears

By constantly challenging yourself, you can get rid of fears that used to follow you. You will no longer be worried, you'll know you can count on yourself.

"If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right."

Mary Kay Ash

:bulletpurple: 3. Happiness

When you believe in you, it brings you strength and happiness. Happy people do everything more efficiently and are healthier.

"If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint", than by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."

Vincent Van Gogh

:bulletpurple: 4. It's contagious

Once you start believing in yourself, you will provide a good example for others as well.

"Believe in yourself and there will come a day when others will have no choice but to believe with you."

Cynthia Kersey


:bulletpurple: 5. You are all you have

The truth is, even at times when nobody's got your back, you can stand still and focused. After all, you have nothing less than yourself in this world.

"I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not."

Kurt Cobain

Do you believe in yourself?

It's the strangest thing in the world when everyone believes in you but the people you love. When strangers love you and your family doubts you. But this article made me think. And though I may have to manipulate myself (and my finances), the only person standing in my way, is me. Thanks.

This is a good article. If only people followed this advice on everything in their life.
It's always refreshing to see confident, happy, kind individuals!

i almost stopped believing in myself when i didnt win anything in my local art show this past year. my teacher and boyfriend and friends had made me feel confident and believe i could actually win. when i realized i wasnt going to win anything at the show my heart sank, the lil negative voice in my head was telling me "if you cant even win here, why even try anymore. whats the point? you'll never make it as an artist" when i went back to school the next week though, i had to keep drawing in art class. i made some pieces that were even better than the ones i put in the show. im more confident again now C: i may not be the best but hey, i enjoy it. who's some old farts that like a bloody prom dress best to say im not a great artist? i guess what im trying to say is that if you feel like your not good enough, keep drawing anyway! you may just prove yourself wrong
