We know that the human being is a social animal. Reason cannot prove the beliefs it is based upon. Beliefs arise through experience. Experience needs previous beliefs and reason to be assimilated and reason needs experience to be formed, as beliefs need reason as well. Beliefs, reason and experience, are based upon each other. There are two forms such belief systems can take; evidence-based or faith-based.
If you sometimes have trouble believing in yourself then read, absorb, enjoy, and practice these self-belief tips.
1) Remember self-belief is learnable
We can all be flexible and change, even 'fly'. Remember you were born into this world with no sense of what you could or couldn't do. Then, bit by bit, life started to teach you to limit yourself. One of the first steps is to re-examine and discard many of the limiting ideas you have about yourself; ideas that you've somehow collected along the way.
2) Develop your 'super powers'!
'Priming' your mind with qualities and positive characteristics can actually determine your behaviour. As well as superhero powers, write all kinds of other positive characteristics (whether you think you have them or not).You'll be amazed how doing this will powerfully prime your unconscious mind.
3) Do 'hero training
Think of a situation in which lack of self-belief holds you back. Now think of your 'hero' – who could be a world leader, a movie hero, or the guy or gal down the street. Now close your eyes and strongly imagine them dealing with the situation 'heroically'. Now imagine being them for a few moments, experiencing that time in their shoes. Keep doing this until you notice you can start to transfer a sense of their qualities to yourself.
