Believe in Yourself!


As I’ve become older and more self-reflective, I’ve learned there are differences in self-centeredness than self-reflection. Wisdom reveals  growth. One must possess open-mindedness and the ability to embrace a different perspective without bias.

In other words, one should possess a healthy perspective of life and purpose. Achieve a comfortable place where success is measured by a sense of self-accomplishment not resulting from the standards of others.

Do you have any goals or dreams bigger than yourself? Well, you should. Some goals and dreams are achievable and others are in the category of things desired but not achieved in the present moment.

What stops us from achieving our goals? One of the reasons, we lack belief in our ability.  Yes, we may miss the mark sometimes, but we can always strive to aim at the target.

Years ago I heard an instructor say, and I’ll paraphrase, “children think they can and learn they can’t.” This statement is a powerful revelation. It’s true, generally children are  fearless about their abilities with minimal reservations about their inabilities. Later, they are trained and taught their boundaries.

Well, like eager children, we must return to the natural child-like inner knowing “we can” and resist the hesitation “we can’t.” Let’s start believing in our potential again.

Believe in Yourself! Pursue your passion, dreams, and goals!

    Great post and welcome back! I firmly believe that we are equipped to do all that God wants us to do. Sure, we’re limited, but we must also acknowledge that we aren’t meant to excel at everything. 🙂

    We can learn and do so much when we tap into the child in us.
    Lost dreams are awakened.
    Yes we must be humble and brave like little children.
    Thanks my friend for the inspiration.

    You should be rightly proud of what you’ve posted here. You have some real nice thoughts in this post for others to reflect upon. You should stick to the same ballpark, so to speak, if philosophizing like you have is coming to you naturally.
