Always Believe in Yourself
Have you ever been demotivated because of the rumors? Someone would say that you won’t be able to do this or that. Someone would pass on this message and when this message would reach your ears, you would be demotivated if you are not strong enough to believe in yourself. So, have faith in yourself. Be proud of your achievements. Michael Jordan has rightly said, “Don’t let them drag you down by rumors, just go with what you believe in.” These rumors will demotivate you and it would be the cause of your loss. Nobody wants to be defeated in the end. Moreover, you do not have any hand in these rumors. Then, why should you face the consequence of such rumors? Let all say what they have to say, you just have to believe in yourself. Their opinion does not matter till you have your strong opinion for yourself.
Ignoring the Rumors
These rumors are not your fault. Some might say bad things about you but when you will show them your potential by tasting the win, their mouth would be shut. These rumors are not temporary. Rumors are just bleak wind that passes by. These rumors should not hold you back. You should not be demotivated just because of these rumors. There are several people in the world who have confronted bad talks about themselves but they did not lose the hope to win. If Jack Ma, the founder of Alibaba, would have listened to the bad things the person around him were saying, he would not be able to be the richest man in China.
These bad talks about you is a trick to not let you win. If you really want to win, you have to get over it. You should understand that these things are keeping you away from your ultimate goal. You should believe in yourself and your belief should be so strong and rigid that nobody in this world would be able to shake it to the core. So, keep the faith in yourself and progress towards your aim of life.
Believe in Yourself is an Art as well
You must have heard about the Art of War and even recently you must have heard about The Art of Happiness. Similarly, I believe that believing in yourself is an art as well. Stronger the belief you have in yourself, the better the art it is. There are some ways that you can follow to believe in yourself.
- Acknowledge Your Achievements: When you have realized that you have not won your game by chance but with your hard work and talent, then that would be the first moment when you should start believing in yourself. If you have not realized the cause of your win, you would not be able to believe in yourself. The moment you start believing in yourself, you would not be affected by the bad words around you about you.
- Give Yourself Time to Thank Yourself: Do not consider those personalities fool who are habitual of self-talks. Talking with their own soul and body is the best conversation anyone could have. In the morning, when you wake up, give two to three minutes of time to yourself. In this time, you should talk to yourself. Thank yourself for achieving what you have achieved yesterday. Think about what you would be doing today. Thank your soul and body for letting you win each day. In this way, you will believe in yourself more than ever.
It is You who is Responsible!
You are responsible for everything you have. If you are defeated in a game, you are responsible. If you win, again, it is you who is responsible for your win. But, when this rumor is involved, other people are involved in your loss. When you do not believe in yourself, these rumors start to take your time and dedication out of the game. So, you must realize that it is you who is responsible for your actions. If some other people are getting involved in your defeats, then you must understand that your goal has been snatched away from you.
There would be a point in your life when you would be severely affected with the rumors. But with the progress of your strength and dedication towards the game, you would be able to ignore the rumors. So, you would become a strong person only when those rumors won’t affect you. For all of this to happen, you should believe in yourself and there are no excuses. Only you should be responsible for your result. If someone else is being involved in your result, he or she might damage with the rumors. The rumors, positive or negative, are going to harm you in a long run and you should be strong enough to ignore it.
