For some, self-belief does not come naturally. In fact, many people struggle, at least in some part, with having the confidence to believe in their ideas, talents, abilities, and value. Knowing that, however, that we are all more alike in this way than we are not is a gift. It starts by first knowing that each and every one of us was put here on this earth for a purpose, then owning that purpose and building on it daily. The trick is to not get caught up in what other people say – or even what they do. Life is not about keeping up with the Joneses or anyone else. It’s about putting our best foot forward every day and allowing ourselves credit for every little win. As you practice this more, you’ll find your days will be filled with more abundance than adversity. Give it a try!
Something to Think About
Each of you has a special DNA which is inherent to your strengths, talents and passions. It’s your own special DNA and it must be decoded if you are to discover your life purpose. We succeed when we discover that purpose. The challenge that we face is discovering that path, which is unique to us, and trusting ourselves enough to take that path. When you begin to trust yourself, you will see and know the path that has been reserved for you. Traveling down that path will engage your spirit and ignite your soul. It’s what they call, Living in the Zone.
This is something that many people struggle with or need in their life. We all need someone who believes in us, someone who encourages us. Let’s all make an intentional effort to recognize the gifts, talents and abilities of those around us at least one time per day, every day this week.
