Believe in yourself. Believe that you have the power to get things done. Believe that you have the power to take charge of your life. Believe that you can create your own future. Just believe. Because you can’t get anything done without believing in yourself. People don’t believe in themselves because of their past failures. They are still living in the past. Do not do that, my friend. It is a waste of time. Remember that your time on this earth is limited, so use it wisely. Be honest with yourself. Can you really succeed without failures? Can you really do something new without mistakes? If we are real with ourselves, the answer is no. Why? Because failure is part of our lives. We are human beings. Instead of not believing in yourself, instead of doubting yourself, why not focus on what you can get done? Because if you want to change your life, if you want to get things done, if you want to get to the other side, you CAN’T stop believing in yourself. You must be your own cheerleader. Be your own best friend. Let failure be failure. Don’t let it bother you. Just learn from it. Let your mistakes be your teacher, not your enemy. If you don’t try, you can’t win. If you don’t stand, you can’t walk. If you don’t like your job, for example, don’t quit it, change how you think about your job. If you can do that, everything will change. Thoughts matter.
“Don’t waste yourself in rejection, nor bark against the bad, but chant the beauty of the good.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life is not about rejection; it is about rejoicing. Remember that no one can reject you except yourself. The only person who can reject you is you. Do not reject your life. Because God has a lot in store for you. Do not live in rejection. Instead of beating yourself up for what went wrong, why not celebrate what you have done well? Why not focus on what you have? Many people focus on what they don’t have. They focus on what is not going well for them. That is a waste of precious time. Instead, celebrate your life. Believe in yourself. Believe that everything is going to be okay. Be hopeful that life is going to change in your favor. Believe that God is going to change your life. Believe that you are not going to be where you are next year. Believe that your tomorrow is going to be better than your today.
Rejoice with those who are doing well. Don’t envy them. Celebrate them. When you celebrate other people, God will celebrate you. God will give you more to celebrate. God will show you where to go. For that reason, no matter what you are going through right now, do not give up. As Winston Churchill famously said, “Never, never, never, never give up.” Do not give up on your dreams. Even if you plan to give up, make sure you replace it with something better. Don’t just quit and sit at home. That is a failing strategy. It is not a winning one.
But you can change that. You redirect your life. You can reinvent your life. To do that, no matter what you are going through, you must believe you can change your life. No matter what you face in your life, if you believe in yourself, if don’t believe in rejection, you can get up again. Do you believe in yourself?
