How to believe in yourself

January 23, 20241 min read

There is a particularly long, steep hill near my house that lies between two fields. When I’m out running, there are only two things that get me up the hill without having to stop.

I count to 100 with my steps, every time my left foot hits the ground and I imagine my dear old dad very gentle pushing me up the hill with his hand at the bottom of my spine.

Belief can be a very powerful thing. It can make you do things you would otherwise be too afraid to do or think that you can’t. At the start of this New Year, hopefully you're full of excitement or a belief that this is going to be your time.

A belief in something, whether that’s in yourself, your purpose or what you've got planned for the year ahead, makes it seem so much more achievable. Why is it then that despite all the science, the last thing many of us struggle or refuse to do is actually that - believe in what we're really capable of?

Our mind is by far and away the most powerful machine we have but sometimes, it just needs to be recharged.

If you’re full of doubt and negativity over something, perhaps you’re feeling unsure about a presentation or nervous before a meeting, you almost need to think of your brain as a computer.

Switch it off and then switch it back on again but this time believe in something different.

Look at the positives and back yourself.

The only person that can sabotage the things we do with self doubt is ourselves, nobody else can do this so switch it off and believe.

Although it’s cheesy to say it, something magical might happen.
