Don't Ever Stop Believing In Yourself By Jeannette Tyson Gregory The first (2) steps in believing in you:
1.Find out who you are 2.Study who you are and get acquainted with yourself
There are times when we believe in everything and everybody but ourselves. There is a constant search for mentors and role models when they exist within us.
The most brutal beating that we take is one that we inflict upon ourselves. We make one mistake and we count ourselves out before referee can blow whistle.
We beat ourselves down into a state of depression. Depression is a dark and dreary place where we drink tears for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We tend to use our carnal mind, eyes and ears that are distorted during this dark time.
Have you ever cried all night long? If so, do not cry a minute past midnight because bible states that Crying may last for a night. But joy comes in morning. This passage was taken from Psalms 30:5 in International Children's Bible. Midnight is cut off point for one day and if you cry one minute past midnight, you have blocked your joy from coming. Dry your eyes at midnight if you really have to cry. Place a smile on your face and embrace joy. Cheer up, it's morning time, joy has arrived!
Is self doubt is still hanging around harassing you? If so, get rid of it. I hear you saying, "I have made so many mistakes." This is a familiar phrase that has been spoken so faithfully by many people. But, you are not alone. We've all made many mistakes but . . . more mistakes you make. . .the more self-doubt and less confidence you will have in yourself.
Imagine yourself as a confident person free from self-doubt. Hold this image everyday until it sinks into your spirit. Whenever negative thoughts about yourself enter your mind, erase them immediately.
