I often hear people say that the most rewarding thing they ever did was believe in themselves.
I wholeheartedly agree! 💯
It wasn't until many years later that I realized how true those words were.
Anything is possible when you truly believe in yourself and what you're doing. I know this from personal experience...
Growing up, my grandma used to tell me - you're beautiful, you're intelligent, and you're someone whose future is going to be bright!
That felt good most of the time but I wasn't sure if I believed in those words, back then.🤷♀️
But even with all her encouragement, I always had this insecurity that I was "just this" person, all I could do was this, and I wouldn't be able to reach the top.
I constantly doubted myself. I would second-guess every decision I made and wonder if it was the right thing to do.
This led to a lot of anxiety and stress in my life.
I didn't want to disappoint my family or myself if I couldn't make it. But then, one day, I decided to believe in myself. And that is when everything changed.😟
I started to be part of the top 10 students in class when I was in 3rd grade. I was surprised and was so excited! Being a part of it meant, I'm 'something!' 😭
Then came to high school - I was always between top 6-10, never top 1-5, and I thought, I'll accept that this is how it is without thinking of my progress.
I was so fixated on the idea that if I'm not a part of what I considered the best of the best, I'm just mediocre.
What a way to poison my thinking, huh? 😂
Fast forward to 2022. You might have heard and read this phrase in my stories and posts repeatedly - PINCH ME MOMENT.
At the height of the pandemic, when everyone was struggling, and things looked bleak, I decided to open my own business.
It was a scary time, but I knew that I could make a difference.
I started building my team and helping people change their lives. It was the most rewarding experience of my life. 🥳
Seeing people succeed because of my belief in them is something that I will never forget.
I remembered what I said to myself when I opened my business -- "This better work or else... (a humble and soft tone) or else I'll still believe in myself knowing that I've tried.." 😊
And that moment made me realize I was enough.
That was enough for me to realize that I can do anything whatever I set my mind and my heart into and that it's helpful and healthy to encourage myself too! 🙌
In fact, there is nothing more rewarding than knowing you have the power to achieve anything you set your mind to.
So if you're feeling down on yourself or like you can't make it happen, remember this: the most rewarding thing you'll ever do is believe in yourself. 💖
If you don't believe in yourself, no one else will.
It won't be easy to accomplish anything.
If you don't think you can do something, you probably won't even try.
And if you don't try, you'll never know what you're capable of.
This is because self-doubt will constantly hold you back from taking action.
It's important to understand that you are the only one who can control your thoughts and beliefs. 🤩
And as a result, I became more confident and decisive. 😊
Everything else started to fall into place when I truly believed in myself.
So if you want to achieve something in life, you need to start BELIEVING YOURSELF if you want others to believe in you. ✨
Don't give up on yourself – keep pushing forward, and you'll be surprised at what you can achieve.
You can do it! 💪
What's the most rewarding thing you ever did?
Cheering you on,
