It is difficult enough to achieve anything of any real worth in this dog eat dog world nowadays, but you will find it virtually impossible if you do not believe in yourself.
I believe that no one does it on their own in this life, you can only achieve greatness with the help of others.
People only help the people that they believe in, if you don't believe in you, how do you expect someone else to believe in you? You must believe in yourself, you must think that you are up to the task, that you can handle what life throws at you and still come out on top.
If you do not believe in yourself you will amount to nothing, you will let opportunities slip through your fingers, you will let life simply pass you by.
There are so many men and women who have fell by the way who could have achieved so much with their lives, perhaps you know one or two of them, who could have succeeded if only they had more self belief.
If you want to succeed then you need to be very careful of the thoughts that you hold in your head and the language that you use on yourself and the people around you.
If you are a pessimistic person who always sees the negative in everything then you really do have your work cut out for you, you have a deep rooted issue that must be addressed if you are to move forward with your life.
If you are an optimistic person that likes to see the positives in people and situations then you my friend are already leading the race, with a few tweaks you will be well on your way.
You are so much more capable than you think you are, you have more internal resourcefulness than you could possibly ever use, you can achieve the unachievable, but none of this matters until you start to believe in yourself.
You must believe that you can achieve greatness before you achieve greatness, do not sell yourself short and do not let others sell you short either, you are an amazing individual with more talents than you know what to do with.
There is a quote by Thoreau; "most men lead lives of quiet desperation and go to the grave with the song still in them.
" Don't let this happen to you, you are capable of so much more, however no one can believe in you until you believe in yourself.
