I see this motivational quote pinned all over Pinterest: Believe in Yourself.
Three little words that are meant as an encouragement, but, do we really believe in ourselves?
Sometimes it is easier to believe the “bad” stuff others say about us, but the good stuff goes in one ear and out the other. Why is that? What would it look like if we believed the good things others said about us? Not just take the compliment, then swept it off with the broom of negativity.
What would it look like if we stopped waiting for others to tell us how awesome, fantastic, glorious we are and believed in ourselves, right here, right now? The heck with others say about us anyway!
What would it look like if we believed in ourselves and really mean it? Not just because it makes a great quote. Because if we really believed in ourselves we would stop listening to the negative things people say, and listen to the truth. We would listen to our heart.
We would stop the negative talk that happens in our heads. We would stop comparing ourselves with others. We would be our best cheerleader. We would look in the mirror and see the truth. We would see how great and brilliant we really are.
What would we do if we believed in ourselves? Where would we go?
Let’s make a pact. Let’s believe in ourselves for real.
