Believing in yourself and your abilities is absolutely the most important thing you can do on your journey to a new better you.
It is critical to develop the self-confidence you need to carry you through to the realization of your goals.
Self-confidence is a bit different from self-esteem. Self-esteem refers to your feelings about yourself, your behaviors, and your worth as a person.
Self-confidence is your belief in your abilities and in the way you present yourself to the world. The actions of others are more likely to erode your self-confidence rather than your self-esteem.
However, the two emotions have quite a bit in common. Both are measures of your inherent or developed belief in yourself - and both can be easily pushed off balance, resulting in either over-confident or defeatist behaviors that distance you from your ultimate objectives.
You need to create a balance between too little self-confidence and too much. You cannot accomplish anything without self-confidence; on the other hand, too much self-confidence can ensure that you don’t try hard enough to reach your goals, and you will fall short of realizing your possibilities.
Once you understand that you truly can do anything you put your mind to, you will have unlocked the key to positive thinking. There is no limit to the power of the human mind. Your possibilities really are endless.
