Believe in you and you’re halfway there. – Theodore Roosevelt
Believing in yourself is really important in allowing you to live your life to the fullest. Without self-confidence, you can’t succeed. But often we don’t believe in ourselves and rather dwell in self-doubts and fear. Especially nowadays, you are easily triggered to compare yourself to others. And speaking the truth, you will always find someone that is better than you… This comparison holds you back from living in the now, see who you really are.
Sometimes it helps to step away from your daily environment and usual routine. This is not as easy as perceived, but believe me, when you step out of your comfort zone by your own you will experience amazing things!
Believe you can and you’re halfway there. Why? If even you yourself can’t believe in your own abilities, who will? How can you convince others if you can’t even convince yourself? To succeed, you must first believe that you can do it. Do that, and you have won half of the battle! Of course the way to your goal might be hard and uncomfortable at times. But no matter, as long as you believe in yourself you’ll eventually reach the destination you set for yourself!
How will you get there? See the positive in the negatives, develop a positive mindset. And, don’t ever doubt your own capability. Remember, everyone is meant for something great, you just haven’t realized your potential yet!
Side note: These pictures were taken during my stay in Bali and the climb on the Batur Volcano was an adventurous challenge. To get up at 2 am and climbing the the way up to the top with the ultimate goal to watch the sunrise was not easy. It was challenging in several aspects on one side the external conditions like cold, wind and rain would not be helping but also the mind contributed it’s part. Believing that you can get to the top and that it will be worth it was so right. Experiencing the sunrise at 6.30 did make you forget all the previous struggles and cold.
Just pure happiness and satisfaction.
