We all have the capabilities within us to succeed. Why is it that some people succeed while others don’t? What makes us so different? What is lacking? Here are some tips to help you become the person who can move mountains by using the tools that you already have. This is an 8 part blog series.
Self-Esteem: Some people have a ton of self-esteem. They learned early by the people around them that they can do and achieve anything. They were given moral support in anything they wanted to do, and were shown their good qualities at a young age. Their self-esteem was formed with the words like, you can do this, you are beautiful, and you know you are smart, you know you are loved. There is nothing that you can’t do, etc. The people in their life could have been their family, teachers, clergy, or friends. This initial molding set the stage for years to come. Self-esteem pours out in everything you say and do, such as your appearance and your body language. It is not just feeling that you have the capabilities, but it is in KNOWING that you have the capabilities and the self-confidence needed to do something.
When you were little, each time you were praised for something, your self-esteem rose. For some they don’t know what that feels like. Just know that it doesn’t matter what part of the world you come from, skin color, language, nationality, sex, age, rich or poor; you can move mountains!
If your self-esteem is lacking, you will have to rebuild the image you have of yourself. This will take work on your part, but you owe it to yourself to do it. Tell yourself daily that you are smart, capable, and worthy of all the wonderful things that this life has to offer. Make a list of all the qualities you possess, some examples are; kind, smart, great at math, giving, etc. Each day read the list and adds more qualities to it. Dedicate a portion of your day in the morning and at night to go over your list. Boost your self-esteem by constantly reinforcing your awesome qualities. Remain dedicated to this process; this is the first part of many, in transforming your life. If you are having a bad day, this is great for lifting your mood instantly. Realize that you have the skills to do anything that you want in this life; it is a matter of choice. You are worthy of all these things and so much more; love, success, a career, etc. Just knowing that you have the ability to succeed means that you are half-way there. Success means whatever you want it to be; a loving family, financial freedom, career, self-improvement, helping others, etc. You have to have the determination, the will, and enough faith in yourself to succeed. Every chance you can, think of something positive about yourself, soon others will too. You have what it takes to move mountains!
