Has anyone ever taught you how to think, feel, and stay connected to your belief? Your brain works in mental images, whatever you imagine or focus on will become your reality. Your mind helps your brain shape those images by adding in what you’ve learned and experienced so far in your life.Who you believe you are as a person holds the key to unlocking both the mind and the brain.
Are you ready to believe you are as awesome as others say you are?
Are you ready to look at the positives you brought to the world? Ready to look at the impact you make on your community, family, and circle of friends? Are you shying away as I’m asking this? If this made you feel uncomfortable having to “go there” it’s likely the very reason you’re struggling. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying you have to go to the extreme other side of narcissism and become Kanye West! What I’m saying is that most can’t believe in their success until they recognize worth and value while having a visceral connection to believing it possible. Here’s my challenge for you – It is high time change begins at the grassroots level of self. So what can you believe about yourself today that supports your success flowing into your life?
In a world vying for gender equality, an end to poverty, peace and liberation – without believing it to be possible, status quo will remain.
I ask you to stop looking at those who are successful and try to achieve success by imitation. Instead look at your inner qualities, your “why”, your power. The more you imitate the further you get from what you really want. The key is to learn about who you really are, how you can create your own powerful framework for success and what success really boils down to, for you.
So back to that challenge – what is one small thing you can start believing about yourself today?
If you’re still finding this part challenging, go do something small for someone. Research shows that by doing a small step for someone elsewill help you see the good in yourself.
For example, a study by Indiana State University showed that people who were struggling with depression, when asked to donate to a cause and recruit others to do the same, noted a significant difference in how they viewed themselves.
The reason researchers say, is because when you do something for someone else you begin to see the good that you’ve done, making it easier for you to feel good about yourself.
Want to try it out? It’s our mission to empower 1 million women to reach their economic potential by 2025. We’ve just launched a crowdfunding campaign to help raise money for scholarships so that women who need it most can finally get the relevant training they’ve been searching for and needing.
To shift how you’re seeing yourself, share the campaign or donate. Then notice how you feel inside knowing that you’ve made an impact. Next simply start exploring the other good qualities you hold inside yourself.
Leave me a comment below and let me know how it went. 🙂 Thanks for reading and I look forward to seeing you believe in yourself enough to take action on your dreams.
Convert the word, ‘impossible’ into “I’m Possible” and start seeing change ripple forward for you! Focus on the ripple not the drop!
