Believe In Yourself
The first and most important step to making anything happen is to believe that you can. For whatever reason, human’s have a tendency to self-sabotage. Even when it’s meant to be positive. For the example, saying “Don’t mess up”, your mind holds on to the word “don’t” and interprets it as “I can’t”. And then that thought gets applied to the rest of the statement, reinforcing your concern, in this case, “mess up”.
Self-doubt is incredibly crippling, and a slippery slope for all of us to go down because it will become a defense mechanism with time. Fortunately for us, there are ways to overcome self-doubt, and instill confidence in yourself and capabilities.
One thing I really like doing is to recite positive affirmations. As cheesy as it sounds, flooding yourself with positively oriented messages helps your brain hold on to those ideas and start believing them wholeheartedly. Once you open your mind to the habit of success, you will begin attaining it!
Believe in yourself and turn your dreams to a reality!
