Believing in Yourself

Going throughout my life I think there has been one thing that has stood apart from myself than anything else. The ability to believe in what I am able to do. Anyone can go and get applause from others about how great they are doing, but it isn't good enough until that actually happens. I really believe that apart from them, you have to believe in yourself before you can have others believe in you. If you go throughout your life and constantly need other to pull you up and make you "the best" then what is the point of living. Believing in yourself through almost every stage in your life is important. Especially when you are in that point of your life, in which you need something to go right. God promises us that we will be where he wants us to be, but on that journey, you must put your faith in Christ and yourself before anything BIG can occur.

Looking back through the past year, some things have been great and others not so great, but one constant thing remained the same. I believed in myself and my abilities that I was given at the times they were given to me. I am a true believer in having a positive attitude about everything, and I think it first starts with the ability to really go out and believe that you can accomplish the things you are passionate about. Friends and family are there to tell you that they support you in any decision you decide to make in your life, but it ultimately you that is going to have to make the decision and have it affect the rest of your life forever. God puts people, places, things, creatures and everything in your way so you may accomplish those goals, but if you don't believe in yourself then all the things that God does for you don't matter. He has the big picture in place, and he will make sure you do what it takes to make that occur. When you believe in yourself you understand that no matter what happens, something great is going to come as a result of it. God has the big picture for everyone, for those that believe in Him and themselves the options are endless.

Don't take this as an opportunity to think about the things you missed, but as an opportunity to go out and believe in the things that you are going to accomplish. You can't change the past, but you have the impact to change your future, and it takes one thing, Believing that you can do it! Go out and believe in yourself, and do it knowing that you have what it takes!

God Bless!
