Self Belief: Prove Yourself to Yourself not others
You don’t need to prove yourself to anyone but yourself. After all, you and only you are the creator of your own destiny. It’s impossible to please everyone so let’s stop trying. We need to embrace who we are and be honest and accepting of ourselves, flaws and all. It’s time to stop expecting higher standards of ourselves than we expect of others.
In being real, we open ourselves up to the possibility of real relationships, happiness and success. So, it’s time to stop putting on a mask. It’s time to stop pretending to be someone we are not.
We have nothing to prove to anyone else for many reasons and here are just a few of them:
- If people don’t accept you for who you truly are, then they are not worth having in your life.
- You are unique. By being yourself, you are adding something of true value to the world that was not there before.
- You are the master of your own destiny so only your opinion of yourself truly matters. Keep living your truth.
- Personal growth comes from failure, not success, so embrace the failures as they take you a step closer to your ultimate goal.
