The Courage to Believe in Yourself

Success is not easy but it is not impossible. Most of the time the biggest obstacle in your way is yourself. Yes, you read that right. You. We are our biggest critics. “I feel fat”, “I don’t like this”, “I would but I don’t have the time”. Stop the excuses and just be. You CAN do it!!!

The world can be a very unforgiving place, so why should you beat yourself up? Believe in yourself!! Personally I love BlogHer founder Lisa Stone’s words of wisdom in this area: “Confidence is the heartbeat of beauty. The trick? To get there we have to fail and change. The courage to fail is irresistible to me.”

Courage is the byproduct of believing. Start believing in yourself and fuel the fire in your belly. Don’t extinguish it with negative thoughts or excuses. You deserve to be happy and reach your apex of success. Good things will come. Will it be an overnight success? Most likely not, but enjoy your journey. Its your life’s story. Enjoy every detail, detour and cliff hanger. Only you have the power to say “The End”.
