When you buy a lottery ticket, do you believe that you’ll win, even when you know the odds are stacked against you? I know you do believe, even if it’s only a small part of you, otherwise why else would you buy it? What about when you watch your child learning to walk. They fall over time and time again, but you know they are going to walk, right? You believe in them learning to walk, without even questioning it.
Now when it comes to believing in yourself, that’s a different question, but why is it any different?
What if you did believe in yourself in everything you try, do you think the results might be better than all the things you have tried when you doubted yourself?
Imagine going for that job, writing that book, starting something new, trying something different, but instead of all the voices in your head, or the comments from friends and family, telling you why you can’t do it, or that you’re no good, what if all those voices told you that you can do it? I know the results will be different, and in your favor.
Try it, every time that soft voice says you can’t do something, catch it, and tell yourself you can.
You can do it!
