7 Simple Steps To Getting It And Keeping It (Indestructible Self-Belief)

Published

on

The greatest asset you can have in life is self-belief. People who handle life well, achieve great things and have stronger belief than the average person. Here are 7 simple steps that will remind you what it takes to have self belief.

1. Do you believe in you?

Self-belief is feeling good enough. It’s the feeling that you can handle what life throws at you. It’s a healthy appreciation of your talents, characteristics and abilities. It’s seeing yourself as special and entirely unique, like no other person on the planet.

Think of it this way: life is a confidence trick. With enough confidence, you can get away with anything. Real confidence is the unshakeable conviction that the world is unfolding to your advantage and that you can handle anything life throws at you, that you’ll always find a way through, because there’s always a way – and you’ll find it. It’s a blend of optimism, charm and energy.

However tough and resilient you think you are right now, there’s always another level to take yourself to. Indestructible self-belief means that whatever happens you have the internal resources to recover fast and fully. You’re tough. The bigger the challenge, the setback or letdown, the more you pull out of yourself. A crisis never leaves you where it finds you because you’re sharper and taller afterwards. You’re awesome, indestructible.

2. What’s your opinion of you?

What do you want to believe about yourself? The truth is you can believe anything you want. Whatever you choose to believe will be true for you in your life, because that’s the view that you’ll feed to. You’ll accumulate evidence to prove your position, because that’s simply what we humans do. We have a need to be right, so whatever we believe, whatever perspective is, we’ll locate the evidence to prove our position. So, it’s best to be clear what you want to be right about, because that will shape your experience of life and your opinion – on you.

3. Take responsibility

So far you’ve been exploring your relationship with you and grasping the critical importance of self-belief. You now know that the most powerful and influential person in your life is you. You are the thinker of your thoughts. You have ultimate responsibility, the final say in defining who you are and how your life is. In particular, you have sole responsibility for choosing your response to any and every situation in your life, past, present and future.

How many times have people told you to look on the bright side? They have a point. Instead of endlessly dwelling on negative images from the past, and reliving moments when things went wrong, change your focus and recall the good times instead. Experience the sense of pleasure which comes from a memory of a wonderful time and your spirits will lift. Regularly counting our blessings, rather than our burdens, has been proven to improve our mood, performance and relationships.

4. Think big

Go beyond what you think you can do. Believe that anything is attainable. Expect the best. Be optimistic. The bigger the challenge, the more you rise to the occasion. In other words, play a bigger game. Who knows what lurks beneath your surface? Do you? Unless you think big enough, you might not.

5. Recover faster

Holding on to your self-belief is easy when things are going well. It’s when the going gets tough that you have to watch out. Handling yourself well in turmoil is vital if you are to live an interesting life. Life will definitely take it out of you. Every one of us will have our fair share of testing, defeats, disappointments, criticism, and even condemnation. No one gets a totally easy life. The question is – how do you handle it?

You need to know how to put yourself back together again. You need to be able to dig deeper into yourself to emerge stronger, clearer and better than ever. Understand: a crisis will never leave you where it finds you. You’ll be weakened or strengthened by it. It’s entirely down to you. It’s not what happens that poses the greatest threat – it’s your interpretation of it. Remember, your greatest ally or most powerful enemy is one and the same person – you.

There’s no one better positioned than you to do maximum damage to yourself. When life is at its toughest, you can turn the gun on yourself – often called shooting yourself in the foot. Or you can rise up to your full powers, get into the right frame of mind and resolve not to be beaten, least of all by yourself. Whether you acknowledge it or not, a crisis always hands you this choice.

6. You’re fabulous

Building and maintaining powerful self belief is a choice. It isn’t something you must be born with. It doesn’t matter how low your levels have been – you can upgrade any time you like. Remember: what you think, you create. First comes your thought about yourself, then follows the outer world of physical manifestation. Perspective – thought – reality. If you don’t think something is possible you won’t take even the first step towards creating it. If your self-belief is shaky, then you’ll falter at the first setback, confirming your strongest beliefs about yourself.

7. Building a successful identity

Handling criticism is something that will test your foundation of self belief and can shake you to your very core. Having a clear and strong foundation of clearly defined self-belief underpinning you will help enormously, but you can still be rocked and unseated by other’s attempts to undermine you. When this happens, take time out to examine the claims and if there is genuine fault on your part, face up to this and make amends. If you’ve made a mess, be big enough and self-assured enough to admit it and clean it up. If you feel you don’t have a case to answer and are being unfairly attacked, defend yourself. Reaffirm who you are and shore up your self-belief so that you can emerge stronger than before. Think of what happens when a healthy immune system has to respond to an outside threat such as germs. This is exactly how you must be. And the more successful, powerful, ambitious or visible you are, the more prone to criticism you will become. Be ready and be prepared to handle what may come your way.

…So what did you think of these 7 steps?

I took all this information out from Fiona Harrold’s book ‘Indestructible Self-Belief: 7 Simple Steps: to getting it and keeping it!’ There’s actually more to this book that will makes you feel like you’re being personally coached, with ‘The work’ section at the end of each chapter as well as many examples and case studies.

10 Powerful Quotes About Success With Images And Interpretations

Published

on

By

Here I have collected together 10 quotes with my own interpretations that will hopefully drive you towards a more successful life. Hope you enjoy reading them.

1. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor"

What I interpret from this quote: you can't learn to master life if you expect life to be perfect. The only way to really master anything in life, is by going through different waves of ups and downs, because during these moments is when you learn the most. Sometimes, you have to experience and get through challenges in life first before you get to live the less challenging parts of life.

2. "When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it."

What I interpret from this quote: if you feel like everything is going wrong, that doesn't mean it's the end of everything for you. Sometimes, things need to go very wrong before they can go right.

3. "Stay positive. Stay focused. Stay strong."

What I interpret from this quote: stay positive, because no matter how negative things may seem right now, having a positive attitude and mindset is definitely powerful and will help you push through these tough times. Stay focused, because if you lose focus, you will not be able to get anything done. Don't allow distractions to stop you from achieving your goals and dreams. You need to stay focused, otherwise you will just keep falling back. And most importantly, stay strong, because if you don't then who will?

4. "The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them."

What I interpret from this quote: if you're in a position where you have some goals in your life, but don't know how to achieve them or where to start - then look for inspiration from someone who's already successful, do some of their background research and find out how they took action into making their goals and dreams a reality. Then adopt their same approach and make your goals and dreams a reality too.

5. "When you feel like quitting, remember why you started"

What I interpret from this quote: there's no point in quitting something that you started. I mean, why start something you can't finish? If you start something, you either go all the way or don't do it at all.

6. "All progress takes place outside

 the comfort zone"

What I interpret from this quote: sometimes in order to do great things in life, you can't do it while remaining stuck in your comfort zone because this way you'll never grow. Yes it's going to be uncomfortable, but if you don't step out of your comfort zone, then you will never discover your full potential. It's hard, but you have to push yourself and take risks to do great things in life.

7. "Bloom where you are planted"

What I interpret from this quote: if life ever puts you into a challenging situation or circumstance, don't feel like it's the end for you. Sometimes, there's a good reason behind why we struggle. We must simply accept the situation/circumstance and use it as a motivation tool to grow through it all.

8. "Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside of you that is greater than any obstacle"

What I interpret from this quote: you have to believe in yourself and your abilities if you want to get through any difficulty in life and achieve your goals. Don't doubt yourself. You are stronger and braver than you know. You can do anything, just as long as you believe in yourself first. After all, if you don't believe in yourself, then who will?

9. "Do something today that your future self will thank you for. Our actions and decisions today will shape the way we will be living in the future"

What I interpret from this quote: if you're chasing after, say, for example, a million dollar dream or luxury lifestyle then make sure you're taking every necessary step and action to make it happen. Make sure you do this right now, and every single day until you actually get to the day where you can tell yourself "I did it". You can't possibly achieve your dreams if all you do is lay down on your bed, watch Netflix or be distracted by twitter all day long can you? You have to be productive.

10. "Stay bright and cheery!"

What I interpret from this quote: try to adopt a bright mindset and attitude towards life. Try to smile and be happy when you can. Think bright thoughts. A good attitude determines the way you act, and it also attracts good things into your life. After all, life is too short not to be bright and cheery. Smile a little more often. 🙂

I truly hope these quotes and interpretations were helpful to you. Let me know in the comments below which one is your favourite. I would like to know, thank you in advance.
