Starting something new for most people is scary. Those who don’t appear to be scared to step out of their comfort zone are likely one of two things. 1. Lying or 2. Believe strongly in themselves and their abilities.
We all know that one person who is confident and seems to accomplish everything they set out to do. This person has a strong belief in themself. They are usually pretty high energy, giving off major positivity vibes vs. any sort of jealous or judgmental ones.
A strong belief in yourself is crucial to achieve your goals. Despite what’s portrayed on social media, the majority of us struggle in this area. Luckily, there are some pretty simple ways to start gaining a stronger belief in yourself.
Using your inherent strengths as a resource to help you grow is a great way to cultivate a strong belief in yourself.
Identifying positive aspects of ourselves, specifically our strengths, helps us to work towards accepting who we are in the moment, while acknowledging who and what we want to become.
This encourages us to accept ourselves even when we are not exactly where we want to be. Enabling us to acknowledge that we might not be exactly where, who, or what we want to become yet. While still strongly believing in who we are right now, our current abilities, and our ability to grow. This allows us to both accept ourselves and be open to growth.
Identifying a goal alone is not enough. We must first dig deep to identify our strengths, uncover what makes us truly happy, and what areas of our life we want to grow in.
To work towards self-acceptance and self-belief we want to goal set in a specific way.
Breaking down our bigger goals (e.g. 5, 10 year goals) into smaller goals is a great way to start. Setting smaller goals with action steps that can be completed in 30-90 days is perfect. This helps us to identify and set action steps towards our goals that are attainable. Each little goal is essentially a step towards our big goals.
