You have to believe in yourself to achieve in life. To be successful in life, you have to surround yourself with greatness. The people that surround you in life are very important. If you surround yourself with people who build you up, who make you grow, who challenge you to be better. You are going to become great.
On the other hand, if you surround yourself with people who just tear you down, who tell you all the reasons why it won’t work. Who tells you that you are not good enough – I call people like that: “The little man” If you surround yourself with people who are the little man, then soon you become the little man. They listen to their friends, they listen to the world that was currently available to them.
However, where your heart and your passion can create something, can create a new reality that didn’t exist before. So you want to do things because it’s the right thing to do. Because you were meant to do or because you feel it. Therefore, that comes from your heart. It is not because it makes logical sense to do it.
You can always come up with an excuse why you can’t do something and you can say I am going to wait for the conditions to be perfect before I go out. The conditions are never perfect. If you wait for the conditions to be perfect to make your dream a reality then you are going to be sitting on your dream for the rest of your life. If you want something, you go get it!
Whatever you are trying to learn now, whatever new skill you are trying to pick up, the beginning stages it’s hard and frustrating and it sucks, but don’t give up, because if you keep practicing you are going to get better and better and better. It’s going to be easier and you will see more results. Ignore the non-believers! If you have an idea, you are going to have people in your life who are doubters. Who doesn’t believe in what you are doing? Who will tell you to do the same thing, the smart thing and go get a job? That your dream is just not possible. This is a stupid idea. Don’t believe in yourself and those ideas.
You can have a lot of these people in your life. Especially if you have a big idea. All you get hit with is negativity. People saying – No, no, no and telling you all the reasons why it’s not going to work out. And it’s so dangerous.This is because you have a little bit of doubt yourself and if all you hear is “No”. All you see is darkness around you.
At some points, this is where a lot of people fall down. This is where a lot of ideas die on the table. Because what happens is, you start believing in other people and what they are saying more than you believe in yourself. You start thinking, maybe I am crazy. Maybe I don’t know what I am doing. Maybe this idea really is stupid and you end up quitting. Then, you see a little while later somebody else making huge dollars from your idea and you kick yourself and you say – That should’ve been me. I knew this was a good idea That should’ve been me. I knew this was a good idea. But you stopped believing in yourself and you started believing the doubters. Read many great quotes about believing in yourself.
