Everyone battles self-doubt at some point or another; it is simply in our human nature to do so. It is what we do with that self-doubt that is what makes us or breaks us. Your destiny is in your control, as long as you learn how to conquer your own doubts and how to press ahead towards pursuing what makes your spirit happiest. As my favorite tea bag label from Yogi Tea tells me, “You will never find happiness if you do not conquer your own doubt.” In other words, fake it till you make it. If you want to be a star, you have to believe that you can be first.
This morning I had the privledge of spending a few hours with a dear mentor, Kim, who I haven’t seen in years. Over coffee, buisness talk and catching-up conversation, she reminded me of the power of belief. If you see great potential in someone, tell them. If you love someone, tell them. If you think that someone is great, tell them — for that is exactly what she did for me this morning. Never underestimate the impact of postive encouragement and supportive belief. Those who want to be prosperous must first make others prosperous. Look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself outloud that you ARE a star and you will be amazed as the self-doubt dissipates from your life. Share the power of belief with others, empowering them to conquer their self-doubt and to find true happiness.
