Cultivating Belief in Yourself

Cultivating belief in yourself, and believing what you choose to believe in are of paramount importance.

Whatever you truly believe deep inside yourself, tends to manifest in outer reality. If you believe you'll succeed, you probably will. If you believe you'll struggle, prepare for a fight.

These articles will help you to:

  • Understand the power of the beliefs you hold
  • Learn techniques to cultivate beliefs of your choosing
  • Gradually change your beliefs over time

Beliefs are often deeply embedded and take time - and effort - to change. Cultivating belief in yourself, however, is one of the most worthwhile endeavors you could embark on. Let these articles help you on your way.

Media Influence. Let's start with a big one! Do you have any idea how much the media shapes your beliefs? Well, if you're panicked about the "threat" of terrorism or swine flu, believe we're stuck in a recession where there's no money to be made, or feel the world is a scary and dangerous place, you're being influenced by the media to believe something that is not necessarily the case. Cultivating belief that the world is actually an abundant, happy place takes work - but first you have to accept that the wool is being pulled over your eyes. Read more here.

Building Self Esteem. One of the most important things you can do is cultivate belief in yourself. When you believe in yourself, you set higher goals, take bigger risks, and like and respect yourself more. Unfortunately, most of us suffer from low self esteem. This detailed article shows you the three major steps you need to take to cultivate belief in yourself - to learn how to tolerate, like and then love yourself. This isn't an overnight fix, but this article will show you how to get there.

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others. Most people waste a crazy amount of time and effort comparing themselves to other people. No matter what they achieve, if someone else is "doing better", they'll get the hump and feel miserable. Naturally, this is a crazy philosophy to live by. Luckily, the desire to compare yourself is a belief like any other, and can be un-learned. This article will show you how to start focusing on being the best you can be, and help you to stop worrying about the 6 billion other humans on the planet for a minute!

Learn to Visualise. I first found out about visualisation a few years ago, and I dismissed it as a load of hippy rubbish. Luckily, being a bit of a hippy, I gave it a go anyway. I now know that visualisation is the fastest and most powerful way to change beliefs, and cultivate beliefs that empower you. Not only that, it's fun to do. All you do is imagine yourself being the person you want to be, generate the feelings of success... and voila! You begin to change! Seriously, make visualisation a part of your daily practice and you'll succeed much quicker.

Learn NLP.
Neuro Lingusitic Programming is a fancy name for a set of methodologies that help you to change your beliefs, control your thinking, and communicate better with other people. There are loads of cool techniques from NLP that look at the way humans store memories & process emotions, which can be used to cultivate belief in yourself. I use NLP almost daily to ensure that I'm on top of my game, and with my articles you can too. Don't be put off by the over-the-top names, just give it a go and you'll see what I mean.

Changing beliefs and cultivating belief in yourself takes work, but my goodness is it worth the effort. As soon as you start to truly believe in yourself, life begins to take off... and please remember that EVERYONE has the capability to learn how to change their beliefs.
