The more you believe in yourself, the more the world believes in you!
― Isa Zapata
If you believe in yourself people will begin to mimic your behavior.
Believing in yourself changes your posture towards everything. It changes the way you carry yourself, the way you speak, the way you think, and your overall perception. What we are destined to accomplish isn’t meant to wait until people believe in us, or even the fact that they think that we were capable of accomplishing anything. Accomplishing our destiny is based on our belief in ourselves and our ability to move forward, no matter what lies ahead.
Believing in yourself and moving forward is a conscious act of faith and to me, is similar to walking through automatic doors because they both happen simultaneously if you approach with the confidence that says THIS IS my next move. However, if you stand there and stare the door it won’t open.
Don’t wait for the huddled masses to tell you can, because they won’t, they CAN’T! If they could they wouldn’t be standing huddled together they’d be moving toward their own destinies!
Believing in yourself and be confident in the truth that no one can accomplish what you can; even with all your flaws.
Can I tell you a secret? Flaws aren’t meant to diminish you they are meant to differentiate you from everyone else. It’s because you have those flaws you are uniquely qualified to do what you do and be who you were born to be. So EMBRACE who you are, BELIEVE in who you are, FALL IN LOVE with who you are and trust me, the rest of the world will have no choice but to do the same.
Today is OURS my friends.
