9 Ways to Start Believing in Yourself Again

Believe in love. Believe in magic. Hell, believe in Santa

 Believe in others. Believe in yourself. Believe in your dreams. If you don’t, who will?” ~ Jon Bon Jovi
There are times in life when things don’t go our way. Times when we meet with failure, defeat, fear and insecurity. And
when that happens, because we are so used to taking our sense of worth from the things we do, from our worldly
successes and daily accomplishments, we inevitably start to doubt ourselves.
We start to doubt our ability to make our dreams come true, we start to doubt our worth, we start to doubt the people around us and we
start to doubt whether we will ever feel safe and secure in this world.
1. Make peace with where you are.
“When we say to you, make peace with where you are, we want you to make peace with where everyone is; we want you to
make peace with the world events; we want you to make peace with where your friend is in relationship with where your
friend wants to be. We want it to be all right with you where anybody is.” ~ Abraham
There’s no need to fight against what is. Resistance is futile. If you want to get out of this dark world you are
now in, back to feeling safe, happy and secure, and back to believing in yourself, you first need to make peace with
where you are, with how your life looks at this moment, and with everything that led to this situation.
Only by doing so will you have the necessary power and energy to change your present life situation.
2. Trust that life will never give you more than you can handle.
“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for
something new to emerge.” ~ Eckhart Tolle
Even though at times it feels as though life is against us and that it doesn’t like us very much, the truth of the
matter is that life loves us a great deal. And because it loves us so much, it wants us to constantly stretch, to grow
and to discover more about who we truly are and what we are capable of being, doing and having.
The way I see it, it’s all about perception and how you choose to look at things. If you shift your mindset, no longer looking at your
challenges as burdens but rather as gifts and blessings in disguise, you will soon realize that life will never give
you more than you can handle. And if life gives you a lot,  it’s because you can handle a lot.
3. Trust yourself.
You have within you all the power, all the strength, all the courage, all the confidence and all the wisdom that’s needed
for you to deal with whatever life brings your way, and the more you learn to trust yourself, the easier it becomes for
you to access and become one with all of these things.
“Everything in the universe is within you. Ask all from yourself.” ~ Rumi.
4. Put the past away.
The past is in the past and should be left there. And you know why? Because that’s old energy. Let go of what happened
in the past, let go of any guilt, blame and resentment you might be holding on to and allow yourself to move forward in
life without that heavy burden on your shoulders. Let it all.
5. Forgive yourself.
Forgive yourself for any past “failures” or “mistakes” you think you have made and choose to fill your heart with light
and love – love for yourself, love for the people around you, and love for life itself. Don’t let blame, anger,
resentment or any other negative feelings you might be holding on to make you think that it’s okay to poison your
mind, your heart and your life. Let them all go.
6. Stand guard at the gate of your mind.
“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own thoughts, unguarded. But once mastered, no one can help you
as much, not even your father or your mother.” ~ Gautama
Buddha, The Dhammapada: The Sayings of the Buddha
Be very careful with the thoughts you think and the words you speak. Thoughts have power, creative power, and if you
let your mind wander wherever it pleases, it will continue to trick you into thinking that who you are is not enough –
good enough, smart enough, beautiful enough, worthy enough, etc., and it will continue to damage the quality of your life.
Don’t believe everything you think. Stand guard at the gate of your mind and discipline your mind to think only thoughts
that are positive, uplifting and empowering and ignore all those thoughts that are meant to harm you.


7. Create your life from the present moment.
“When the moment is gone, leave it. Don’t collect the past and then you are never old. You are born every second again
and again and again. It is a constant rebirth… a riverlike flow of rebirth. You are renewed, resurrected. Die to the
past every moment so it is no more a hangup and is not a burden on your head and on your heart, so that it does not
hang like a rock around your neck. Go on dying to the past so you become more and more available to the present.” ~
In each moment you are born again, free from your so-called mistakes and failures, and free from the heavy burden of
your past. So make sure you constantly create your life from a place of infinite choices and possibilities – the present
moment, no longer from a place of fear, limitations and stagnant energy – the past.

your past. So make sure you constantly create your life from a place of infinite choices and possibilities (the present
moment) and no longer from a place of fear, limitations and stagnant energy (the past).


8. Appreciate it all.
Give thanks for everything you’ve been through, for everything you’re currently going through, and for
everything you are yet to go through.Don’t let your heart get bitter. Appreciate it all and know that it’s all
happening for you. It’s all happening for your growth and evolution. It’s all meant to shape you, to polish you, and
to bring to the surface the wonderful, powerful and loving being you are underneath it all.
9. Never stop moving.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to
keep moving forward.” ~  Martin Luther King Jr.
There will be moments in life when you feel like giving up. Moments when the darkness surrounding you will feel) so
dense and without and end, and even though a voice inside your head will tell you to give up, you should never listen
to it.
No matter what happens, never give up on yourself. Never give up on your life. Keep on moving, no matter how slow,
because eventually you will reach the light and when you do, you will realize how much you grew and how much more
powerful you have become.
Let me know if you found this useful.
Personally I went through this program and it helped me transform my entire life 360. I started believing in myself again. I start pursuing
my dreams.
