Self-belief is the cornerstone of success, whether it’s a goal you want to reach, a barrier to overcome or you long to feel more confident and value your own self worth. Whatever it is, you are far more likely to succeed if you believe in yourself and are emotionally resilient.
To be resilient is to have the ability to move forward from adversity and learn and grow from it. Resilience encapsulates a handful of different concepts; emotional intelligence, self belief and confidence, taking responsibility for your actions, your ability to be adaptable, and having a strong sense of purpose. But ultimately it is about having the ability to tap into your internal compass.
So many of us experience paralysing feelings of being lost, confused and overwhelmed by life. We find ourselves looking in the mirror and no longer recognising the person looking back at us. We are living a life by default and not by design. And the gap between where we are and where we’d like to be can sometimes feel insurmountable.
Having an awareness of where we are, what works for us (and what doesn’t), ultimately where we would like to be and the kind of life we would like to be living is within reach. It is achievable. But bridging the gap between the two can often leave us feeling overwhelmed and confused, like someone has switched off our internal GPS system. This often manifests as confusion, stress and anxiety about what the future holds.
Learning to connect with your internal compass which will ultimately help you make the changes you need to make in your life is invaluable.
The ability to do this will always guide you ‘home’ and will align you with your purpose in life, whatever that may look like to you. It will help you overcome obstacles and adversities along the way with more ease and build up your layers of emotional resilience. It will make you more present in your every day life and begin to once again find peace and joy moment to moment.
Above all else, it will allow you to know your own truth which in turn will bring you inner confidence, knowing, self-belief and self-worth. You will trust yourself above and beyond anything else, no matter what is going on on the outside.
You will move from uncertainty to certainty and be clear, focused and follow your own path to living your life by design, not by default. You will find what really DEFINES YOU.
