Ways to feel better: Believe in yourself

If you can see it, you can do it!  Click this video and come back and read.

The truth is if we don't believe in ourselves no one else will.  If you believe you are worthless you will be worth less.  You define your worth...and you are priceless.

Why are we our own worst enemy?  Alison Finch says it best:

  1. Feeling worthless is a safe option because it reduces the amount of pain you suffer when things go wrong. If you already know that you're no good and that no one will fall in love with you, or give you a job, or even care enough to listen to you, then when a rejection wings its way towards you - which it certainly will because it happens to all of us - then you're better prepared than most. You can say: "Ah ha, you can't ruin my life because I already knew this was going to happen; I already knew that you didn't really love me/want me/value me!"
  1. Feeling worthless is an easy option; if you're worthless there's no need to try to do well and succeed in the things that matter to you because there is simply no point. Also, if you act as if your opinions and your desires are all worthless then people leave you alone. If you say you have no remarkable skills or talents then there is no need to apply them. If you say that you are a useless, hopeless nobody then people will expect far less from you. And just maybe you could get lots of sympathy and perhaps even another person (on a white horse in shining armour) coming to your rescue to sort your life out for you.
What does this mean for you?  It means it's time to determine you worthMORE not worthLESS. Like the song says you need to say to yourself:  "I believe I can fly."  

“The year you were born marks only your entry into the world. Other years where you prove your worth, they are the ones worth celebrating. 
Jarod Kintz, This Book Title is Invisible
What you do today, how you feel about yourself will change your life.  Believe you can touch the sky, if you believe it; there's nothing to it.  Get out of your own way and spread your wings!!!
