Believe In Yourself~~~~Susie Austin



To accomplish great things,


we must not only act,


but also dream;


not only plan,


but also believe.


 -Anatole France


Successful people believe they will be successful. We hear much about self-esteem, self worth, confidence, and being in control, however all the research in these areas comes down to the same idea; belief. The people who think they will be successful are more likely to be successful. Not only do we have to dream but we have to believe.


How do you build belief? I suggest checking out the voices in your head and what they are telling you. Do they say you can’t do it? You’re not good enough? These kinds of negative thoughts can be a real problem in your belief system, so I suggest trying to replace those thoughts with positive ones. When your negative side tells you can’t do something and you doubt it, do it anyway and believe you can. When the thought comes replace it with “I can” and “I will”, remember the little engine that could?


My suggestion for today is to develop a key word and when you have a negative thought replace it with this word.  I don’t believe it is possible to clear your mind of all negative thoughts however it is possible to keep them from spinning into destructive patterns.

Believe in yourself and your abilities to achieve your dreams, and move forward to a happy and fulfilling life.
