Becoming Your Own Number 1 Fan

If you're looking to lead a happier life, believing in yourself is an absolute necessity. If you don't believe in yourself, how can you expect others to believe in you?

You may have gone through some rough times in your life making it difficult to be the happy person you want to be. Maybe you even suffer from a lack of self-confidence because of past conflicts and pains. No matter what you've been through, you can choose to overcome these obstacles.
 
It's time to be your own Number 1 fan and there's no better time to start than right now!
 
1.    Gain more confidence in yourself by facing your fears.
  • Fear of failure may have caused you to ignore your dreams, desires or goals. Don't let fear stop you from getting what you want and achieving your goals. If Thomas Edison had been afraid of failure, we wouldn't have the luxury of indoor lighting today. He never gave up trying to find the right way to make a light bulb and he experienced over 10,000 ways of how not to make a light bulb. Just because you don't reach your goals or dreams the first time, don't give up. Keep trying until you succeed. 
     
  • Fear of being alone may stop you from going away to school or moving to a new city where you can pursue your dreams. Realize that you will make new friends and that you're current friends will always be there. Now with the Internet, staying in touch with your friends and family is easier and more convenient than ever. 
     
  • Once you begin facing your fears, you'll discover that what you feared may not be such a big deal after all. But, you'll never know until you start.
2.    Self-talk can also determine whether you believe in yourself or not.
  • Do you often say negative things like, "I'm an idiot," or "That was a dumb thing to do," or "I'm ugly?" How you perceive yourself comes out in what you say. However, what you say to yourself can also change how you see yourself.

  • Start speaking positively to yourself, about yourself. When you're getting ready for the day, while looking in the mirror, point out positive characteristics about yourself and say them out loud. Phrases such as:
    • "I am an attractive person."
    • "I am a good parent."
    • "I am a hard worker."
    • "I love myself."
    • "I like how I look in these clothes."
    • "I am brilliant."
  • Even if you don't believe it, say it! You'll soon realize these things really are true. You can also post positive quotes or scriptures where you would see them several times a day to keep your spirits high.
3.    Insecurity can be a source of disbelief.Learning to be more secure in certain areas of your life will help you believe in yourself more, plus others will begin to believe in you as well.
 
4.    There may be certain areas in your life that you feel you need to work on, so work on them!
  • Are you bad at financial management? Take a class to help you learn how to budget so you can be in control of your money, instead of your money controlling you. 
     
  • Are you a slow reader? Take a speed-reading class or get a tutor to help you build speed.

  •  Do you find it challenging to speak in public? Take a public speaking course or become an intern for an organization where you must speak in public.

  • Is your weight stopping you from believing yourself? First of all, remember that today's society has a skewed view of beauty. Don't allow the media to determine your worth! However, if your weight is at an unhealthy level, learn how to eat healthy and get regular exercise to take some weight off.
No matter what's stopping you from believing in yourself, there's a way to overcome it. You'll first need to figure out what's causing your self-doubt. Is it fear, insecurity, mental attitudes, or something else? Only then can you face the obstacle and overcome it.

Today, I stand at the end of my 49 days of the Kaizen Challenge and in a way I am sad as this has become the pivot around which I created my daily routine and business tasks. This is the first time ever in my life that I have stuck to a plan for 49 days! I used to get started on a specific plan all motivated & excited, only to loose Read more...

I have realized that "I" am the key to my destiny.  No one else.   I can do whatever I want to, whenever I want to and with whom ever I want to. There should be nothing that stops me from it or disables me from doing, giving, having and Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-06-26 Inside information nobody else will tell you about a website There have been 800 or so questions asked and answered on www.build-a-web.com. Many are about the course itself, but many others are relevant to any website. So if you have a website or plan to create one, you might find some of the information really useful! As far as I know a lot of the time you will not be told this ‘out straight’. Remember, the truth whispers, while misinformation shouts! ... Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-12-18 We think about money so much. But what do we think about?   How much we have. How much we need. How much we want.   We only see it from that point of view.   And I would say, this is not enough. Considering how much of our time it takes up, we should know it better.   Why? Because it isn’t just there. Like a mountain. Or the sea. People made it. People manage it. It’s not perfect. It’s not neutral. It’s not like a force of... Read more...

When I started the Kaizen Challenge course I didn’t even have a clue as to what the term “Kaizen Challenge” meant. I searched the internet and found out that the Japanese word meant continual improvement. The “challenge” part only struck me around Day3 in the course. I realized that this information is not just about money but really about everything in my life – about changing my very being at Read more...
