If you want to be truly successful in life then first of all you have to learn to believe in yourself. If you do not think that you can be successful, then who will?
“He is able who thinks he is able.” ~Buddha
Life success does not mean that you will not fail but it means that your mistakes will teach you something and show you a better way to get what you want.
These are the tips that have helped me get over the fear of being successful and finally believe in myself:
1. Be positive.
Negative thoughts will only increase fear and self-doubt. Stay away from negative people and you will decrease the amount of negativity in your life at least by half.
You will notice how your negative attitude decreases when you practice daily gratitude, write down all the positive events in your life and practice mindfulness.
2. Remind yourself constantly that you are part of something larger than you.
Fear often has to do with worrying about uncertainty, feeling out of control, and wondering what your life’s purpose is. When you realize you are part of a bigger picture, it’s easier to understand that you need and deserve to be successful and happy.
When you do the right things, you help people around you, you make being a good person a priority, and you know that this isn’t just about you—it’s also about the bigger picture that you’re part of, you will have more courage to try new things and you will start believing that your life is successful because of the doing, not the outcome.
3. Take time to find your authenticity.
Do you know who you are? Do you know what makes you happy? Do you know your passions?
Do you take time to reflect on your life and figure out your purpose in this world? Unfortunately, most of us get so caught up in responsibilities and goals that we forget to enjoy our lives.
No matter how busy you are, you must make time for yourself. It can be just 10 minutes a day, but this time must belong to you. If you give yourself the luxury of free time then you will notice that the rest of your responsibilities will get easier.
You will be a better parent. You will be able to come up with creative ideas at work. You will be able to take better care of your health. You will reduce your stress and experience the joy of living.
4. Create your success library.
We need a little bit of inspiration to push us in the right direction, specially when we lose trust in ourselves
There are plenty of ways to find inspiration: Create a library of quotes, save articles and success stories that have inspired you, create a library of inspiring movies and videos, or create an album of your fun and happy memories. Turn to this library whenever you have self doubts.
If you have a fear of something you just have to educate yourself about it. It is like walking into a dark room. At first you feel scared and don’t know what to expect but once you turn the light on, everything gets clear and simple.
6. Live in balance.
No matter how important success might seem to you, it is still important to follow it with balance.
Success is not a destination. It’s a journey, and it’s important that we take each step feeling grounded and balanced. Spend time with your loved ones, enjoy your hobby or follow your passion, take care of your health and grow spiritually. This is the meaning of true success, the one that you can achieve only in balance.
I think that you are able to be successful. It is your right and purpose in life to be successful in whatever you are doing. If you believe in that then nothing will ever stop you from living a balanced and joyous life.
